Monday Manxie

Thanks to this manxie madam, we have been deprived of sleeping alongside Äiti each night. Roosa has grown accustomed to Äiti's snoring and whenever she wakes up,starts yelling for a chin scritch. However she was not happy to have photographic evidence of this captured.
Roosa is doing really well in her own suite. There are occassional break ins when some kitty sneaks through the barriers (Sampo mainly) and then hissing and spitting results, swiftly followed by grabbing by Äiti and an eviction. Personally I think Roosa is greedy to have Äiti every night and I do miss  under the blankie snuggles. However, I have been promised some when the school holiday comes and Äiti can afford to have her sleep disrupted by us.

Sunday Ess

A while ago, one of our supermarkets was selling esses*. Äiti bought a few and we duly ignored them (unless sprinkled with kissanminttu). So she decided one could be attached to the wall. Please note just how bad her DIY skills are in the lack of verticality in the wall brackets.  There goes her entry in Finland's most beautiful home 2019.
Anyway, Mesi was the first to explore.
Seppo wanted to be second, but there was a little tortie problem with that.
However, I took up my place. It is a most excellent vantage point.
*we do not know the correct plural of ess, or even the correct name singular - but who cares ? It's not as if we are playing Scrabble.

Saturday Sphynxie

I have allowed my very handsome wrinkles to be manipulated- photographically only(although I do enjoy a good scritch). I think monochrome flatters my curves and fuzz.
But of course to really experience it, you have to do the jigsaw!

Hyvää ystävänpäivää! Happy Friendship Day

Here in Finland we celebrate February 14th without the romance, and honour friendships instead.
I know this is not a new photo but Äiti says it sums up our Felocracy. Britcat and Finncat; breed cat and moggy; senior and youngster; furry and nekkid. And we extend this friendhsip to all Loyal Readers of course- have a huggy day.

Tuesday Crazies

Just to prove that the sofa does see some action other than sleeping, I present to you a very badly taken sequence of the games Seppo and I indulge in. We are fast, and the camera is slow (Äiti - it's not, you are just very fast), so sorry about the graininess. 
 Seppo is good at this parkour thing.
And I stand my ground so I can whap him when he lands.
But he does manage to trick me. I need a moment for my head to get back into the correct shape, I think.
