Shy Man Cat Monday

As Loyal Readers make comments, I try to respond on my bloggie and here today I show one of the Muhos gang* - Risto. Now he and his sister have not really bonded with the rest of us, and they keep themselves in an area upstairs. Äiti is painfully aware of their shyness and blames us for bullying them. Pöh! Risto is indeed a Halftail (a manxie) and sometimes gets a bit of teasing. Maybe.  It would be so much easier if he didn't argue back and just accepted we are the bosses........
But Äiti does her best to provide for them, despite the fact they both resolutely refuse to use litter boxes. Ever.
Yesterday Risto got a brand new 'dunk' lining: Äiti crocheted one for him. he also got a new magic fishie.
Mesi wanted to play with it, but Risto stood firm.
And he enjoyed loads of scritches and tickles.  He's actually a total tart with humans.
* the Muhos gang are Risto, Roosa, Ruska and our dearly missed Rilli: the four of them came to live with us when their wonderful human died a few years ago.

Refusing to use litter boxes is pretty serious stuff. We mean, thats pretty much the human/cat deal. They do (almost) everything we want, and we use the litter boxes...

I'm glad these three landed at your home... even if the rest of you kitties don't seem to appreciate them!

Hehe, @anonymous.

I agree with the others, I'm so happy that those cats are at your place now. I commend you for accepting their litter box issues!

Risto , you are such a darling kitty and we are so happy to see you! You deserve all the love, toys and treats in the whole world. You are in a great home but it must be hard for you to be teased. Put the bitey on them, that will fix 'em.

You is furry cute Risto! We really like your new dunk lining....that must make a pawsome bed.

Our mom bean is shaking her head over the no litter box thing, she hopes you make it easy for Äiti to clean up after you.

Have a great week efurryone!
