Mancat Monday Meetings

This post must begin with an apology to Loyal Readers - the photos are not of the best quality; the GoPro is brilliant but does not produce the best images indoors. Secondly, we apologise for the pain on your retina from Äiti's crimes against fashion and colour combinations. 
Now, Roosa is a friendly soul - sometimes. Here Äiti is giving her a scritch which in itself is most excellent; just two months ago her rump as was matted and tender so she hated touch.
 And so who was her visitor ? Well, Mirsku! He is delighted to have available foods, and as he is such a relaxed mancat he can cope with Roosa's hissing and is very respectful of her.
She isn't exactly snuggling with him but she is also not hostile.
This is as close as they got.
Now when Äiti comes into the room, it doesn't take much for a feline of my agility to slip past the old bat.
And so Äiti joins Mirsku and Roosa for a game of Magic Fish.  This is most excellent getting to know each other stuff: the fishie is on a great long bamboo rod and Mirsku and Roosa get alternate grabs at it.
Mirsku was in the room for several hours and afterwards Roosa explored the places he had slept and was quite happy.
Now Ruska does also visit, at breakfast time. He and Roosa have hissed a lot but she has known Ruska all his life so there is no aggression. The room has a one-way cat flap to it which Ruska has mastered and he leaves after his tummy is full. Mirsku hasn't discovered it yet!

I'm glad Roosa is getting a chance to be more social!

I'm so happy that Roosa was enjoying Mirsku's visit so much! So sweet that she was sniffing at his spots afterwards. Mirsku is a great mancat! Good work on sneaking in, P. hehe.

We 'd love that handsome mancat Mirsku to visit us , Ruska too! Roosa has the choice of two wonderful new companions.

It is wonderful that Roosa enjoyed Mirsku's visit. Magic Fish sounds like a lot of fun!

Roosa may be changing her ways, with all of this new entertainment! Punapippuri, you'd better be careful!

It is nice to see that Mirsku is keeping Roosa company and that they played with the magic fish together.
