Monday Mancats

The white stuff has arrived and Mirsku will bravely wade through it. He knows the best places to create a new Golden Glacier.
Pekka dashed to the edge of the Catio after Äiti cleared some of the snow- this is the best time to find mousie paths. 
Mirsku, of course, never misses an opportunity to play, and doesn't mind a chilly butt wiggle.
Pekka dashed past as fast as he could, but of course got a whap in passing.

Sunday Scratcher

See that tiny scratcher under Mirsku ? You'd think Äiti would have bought one for each of us  ? Nope -her fantastic idea was that we could share. Foolish old bat.

Saturday Squee

I was trying to get a 'talk to the paw' pose to the camera -even in my slumbers. Äiti just thought it was too cute to resist.
And of course, it is jigsaw-worthy.

Frustrated Friday

Jura is a very easy-going mancat; but he has limits (like any self-respecting feline).  He refused  to pose 'nicely' for a Christmas card photoshoot.
Now I have to make a Public Service Announcement to our most loyal and beloved readers who have been in receipt of a CatioTales calendar in the past. We are very sorry but Äiti made the reluctant decision to stop making and sending these out; postage costs from Finland have just become crazy recently (25€ minimum for even a European parcel), and now she is partly retired her income has dramatically dropped. She is, quite rightly, saving her cents for our foods, but is sad that she cannot spread the joy of a calendar or two.

Hyvää itsenäisyyspäivää !

Happy Independence Day Finland! 
Just 101 years ago today, Finland was granted independence and I loudly celebrating with my rendition of our national anthem.
Okay, maybe I was just waking up and yawning, pre-song. But no Felocrat will be doubted for their patriotism.
