Hyvää ystävänpäivää!

Happy Friendship Day !
Here in Finland we celebrate friendship, not romance, on February 14th. We like this a lot as there's none of that waiting by the post box to see if your true love has remembered you or not - instead we celebrate all our Loyal Readers and each other. Feast your eyes on some moments from the last year or so that reveal how we get on -sort of! Well, the nekkids and burms always huddle together.
Risto and Roosa are so much happier now they are away from some of perheeni!
Pekka is pals with everyone, and Veikko just snuggles wherever.
Tessie enjoys feline company - it'd be nice if she had a warm summer she could enjoy too.
Ruska wants to be pals with everyone.
 Mirsku is just Mirsku; he is a tart.
And even I can be in the same square metre as Aila sometimes.
Lewis is elusive but he does love the others: just not when the camera is about.
And I must admit I do have a special photo for my non-Finnish Valentine: Maggie May. My heart is true to her. We met online thanks to a shared experience of naughty kneecaps and I am very loyal to her, of course. And do you know, we even saw each other on a video call our humans made by accident, hehehehe.  Oh yes, I am very proud of that.
And I wish you all, and your humans/servants too, a happy day. This bloggie world is fantastic and we have met some fantastic people and felines through it. Thank you! Kiitos!

Hyvää ystävänpäivä! And thank you for your friendship (or at least Mom is thanking Äiti, hehehehe)

What a great friendship post! We're wondering though - Pekka is pals with everybody, but Ruska only wants to be pals (but doesn't succeed??). Was this a narrative feature or is Ruska trying too hard for real?

Oh, and we love Mirsku's picture!


P.S. About the orange collar - yes, I've seen the badge before. Whilst I think it's a great initiative, I'm not sure if I'd participate even if we lived in the UK. I don't want to force them to wear a collar all the time. They've their harnesses when we go out (they're not always on their leashes), but as they're mainly inside cats, I don't want to bother them with a collar inside.

Hm. Difficult. They'd probably get used to it.

Hmmm. You and Aila, eh? And she din't eat you or nuffing? Well, that's good. At least she has *some* respect for HRH.

I like the idea of Friendship Day better than the whole romance thing. My human prefers the romance, mainly because she gets a nice dinner out of it, and flowers!

Hyvää ystävänpäivää!
Friendship Day sounds so much better because me and my mum have made so many friends since we have been blogging. My mum said it was lovely when she was able to meet your Äiti in person.

We love the idea of celebrating friendship rather than romance only on February, 14th. We agree, the Cat Blogosphere is amazing ! Happy Valentine's Day ! Purrs

Happy Friendship Day efurrybody! We think that is a far better idea than a little kid in diapers shooting arrows at beans.

It is amazing to us how well you all get along together. There are just three of us and most often Saku is the odd man out. Well, he is kinda odd anyway.
