Weedy Wednesday

Now the snows are melting,we would like it if spring would instantly appear. Seppo is pondering what exactly he should make of one of last year's fine kissanminttu pots which stayed outdoors and cracked.
 He is joined by a committee of mancats to debate the matter.
Sampo was insistent on still trying it. He is a strong optimist.
And speaking of weedy things (the plant, certainly not Sampo), Äiti is suffering with her dizzy head and is calling a break in blogging for a while.
We are not impressed but there's not much we can do about it - our typing is even worse than hers.

Belated Birthday Post

Seven years and a day ago, a beautiful mother cat called Martta  from the Kissmollin cattery gave birth to five healthy kittens including Jaava and Jura who are somewhere in this gang at the milkbar.

Äiti was smitten. Jaava and Jura, sister and brother, were all set to join the gang. They enetered like a tornado.

Stran was so happy to have kittens to play with, and the 'burmese ninja butterballs' soon settled.
They may be older but they still tear around like hurricanes, and snuggle like they were still in their birthing nest. 
Where on earth have those seven years gone ? Happy birthday to you Jaava and Jura, and to Nomi, Annabella and Isabelle - now officially 'senior kitties'.

Multimedia Monday

Yesterday we were provided with lengthy naptime, and also the felociraptors dashed around like mad things as Äiti was glued to her screen.  Mesi was very full of mischief - of course.
Every year she watches the London Marathon live, which is very tedious but does provide us with a lap. However yesterday she was flipping between screens watching the most incredible livecam from TinyKittens. If you haven't seen that site, go visit! They run a trap-neuter-return program in Canada but take in the pregnant mothers. Yesterday we saw an amazing birthing with two mothers in the nest; one had had kittens three days ago and was the most incredible midwife. We felines are amazing creatures, and we are so grateful these kittens were born in the safe warm nest provided - not in the wild.  TNR saves many lives, and we are huge fans of TK for their work and livecams that help educate humans.

Saturday Snooze

It's so tough being a tortie - it is necessary to sleep under the heaty blanket in order to restore one's energy.

Friday Fistipaws

The sphynxies love to wrassle. Well, to be more honest, Veikko does and Seppo goes along with it.
He knows he will get squished.
And smothered.
And hugged.
And all the time he doesn't move off his back. 
However, if you could hear him squeal, you would believe he was being tortured.

Thursday Toils

Mirsku is Jaava's pal. She knows she can twist him round her tortie paw.
Here she blags an ear wash.
And of course wants more.  Mirsku needs a rest.
It's hard work being a tortie's slave.
