Tropical Thursday

Loyal Readers, I thank you for your suggestions about the trauma of brushing me. *Shudder* Luckily I have no mats, but it's the loose stuff that is the problem and right now Äiti is grabbing me at every opportunity to go at me. I did briefly stick my butt in the air in delight for the Furminator so apparently she will use that.  But I assure you there have been bloods from Äiti, hehehehe. We thank you for your support.
Now yesterday a wonderful sight appeared on the catio - direct sunlight. Okay, it may have been -4°C but this was too good an opportunity to miss. Surely you agree this is inviting ? Maybe not. 
But you can guess who was out first. Trust a nekkid to seek the sun. But he was disappointed, it was not exactly strong or warming!
Mesi soon replaced him - and the proof it was in fact sunny is in her shadow!
Now we wish to reassure a special Loyal Reader,  Kari, that when the nekkids do go out, Äiti makes sure they are safe and not out for long in these temperatures. Also the catio is protected from the wind and this is really important. We know they are not designed for the cold and Äiti is very aware of the cold air on their chests and in their lungs, However when the catio door is open itäs pretty hard to stop them - particularly if there is a squirrel outside. When Veikko feels cold he wants to wear his sweater, and recently he has refused it. Seppo pretty much always runs away when he sees it in Äiti's hands.

A squirrel would surely make any place look more inviting, indeed!
Enjoy your, er... "warmth", furriends.
XOXO

Hehehehehe. We loved this sentence "Seppo pretty much always runs away when he sees it in Äiti's hands". You should starting to do the same with a brush or furminator!

When do you get the results of the blood sample?

Those naked boys are just nuts! I bet even Boodie wouldn't be anxious to go running around in that snow.

Mommy says she remembers running around nekkid in the snow...but HER adventures involved a hot tub and ethanol!

Sisu is an underrated quality. I myself admire their insane courage and expect they are not suicidal and thus know to come in from the cold. Or perhaps I am giving them too much credit?

The nekkid boys are a little bit crazy ! We're glad Äiti is aware of this and do her best to protect them from wind and cold ! Purrs

Yes, we kitties are sometimes like small children and get so involved in our play we simply forget the surrounding situation. So comming in from the cold may or may not happen. We can certainly understand the boys not wanting to wear clothing, unnatural even for the hairless! But necessary for out of doors visits.

How nice to see the sun's slow but steady progress.

Direct sun! Yep, the bright sunny thing is coming back north.
