Mighty Mancat Monday

Yesterday, Loyal Reader Flynn  asked if Ruska was really big or just floof. Well, it's hard to tell as he is shy and the only time Äiti can pick him up is when he is sedated for his annual grooming. He is certainly one of the bigger felines in perheeni: maybe Pekka, Aila and Mirsku are more massive. Since his last grooming he has become more confident and Äiti has scritched him more. 
He loves rolling outside and here chases a woven thread donated by our Loyal readers in Finland(S), the girls at When the Cat's Away.
Ruska is a big floofy beast.
He has the potential to be boss cat if he wanted, which would be great as he defends me!
By contrast on the fur front, we have Seppo who is wearing some white fuzz. He has a tabby striped tailio under his brown 'fur', and now seems to be going grey on his back and thighs. His muzzle is black but he seems to be getting more colourful as he ages.

Ruska is quite a handsome guy! Wouldn't it be funny if Seppo was one of those rare calico or tortie boycats? Only with no fur!

Ruska is a big handsome ball of floof and it is good he is enjoying scritches now. Eric at his heaviest was 23lbs but with diet and withdrawal of dried food got down to 19 lbs. I have always been between 15 and 16 pounds but am now just over 9 lbs. It is a good job I have very thick fur which mostly hides my skinniness.

Ruska is a floofy mancat; he's gorgeous! I've only once touched a Sphynx cat like Seppo; so warm!

We love Seppo's fuzzy tail! Dragonheart has developed "age spots" as he's gotten older (he'll be 10 in July). Ruska definitely has lots of floof!
