Mirsku Monday

Mirsku is also a mighty hunter, but so far Äiti has not seen him catch any squirrels. However, when he does catch something he trots in with the most confident, proud gait Äiti has ever seen. Despite the murder involved, she thinks it is very sweet and would love to get a video. So we have to hunt some more....
This may not be difficult as the squirrels do appear to have a suicidal tendency - they run across the Catio wires and this is indeed worthy of a Darwin award as Summer pointed out in yesterday's comments. They are not the brightest, but they are pretty tasty.

Smug Sunday

There has been carnage on the Catio recently. Jaava caused much grief to two stinky birdies -and Äiti who had to do the humane thing. Pekka, however, was clean with his capture of a squirrel. Much jollity was had with it and he was pleased.
The next dayÄiti came home to find blood, fur and half a skull in the house. Cat's honour prevents the identity of the killer from being released, but Pekka is suspected as he is a super-stealth squirrel assassin.   There are still more of them in the garden but Äiti hopes that no more will be deliever into the Castle.

Friday Farewell

We wish to honour a true God Emperor of the Feline Universe, Grandpa Mason who is journeying to the Bridge.  He is a very famous rescue from the Tiny Kittens place of magic in Canada, trapped as a feral and found to have kidney disease. For whatever live he had left, he was to live in the warm and with food and love. However no one expected that life and love to extend to educating and bathing many rescued litters of kittens; he spent nearly three glorious years enjoying their company and teaching them To Cat. He entertained many thousands of humans online, one of which was Äiti. We honour him, and all he represents.  
Sadly, Grandpa Mason is mortal, like us all and his body has failed. We like to think he and Stran, our very own former feral kitten whisperer, will be together somewhere, comparing stories.  We send special love to those at TKHQ who will miss Mason more than anyone.

Thursday Pile Up

Our autumn snoozing is continuing; it seems to be a bit of a theme for the week. And why not ?

Stinkeye Tuesday

 Seppo is very protective of my snoozing. That camera will not dare come closer to disturb me.
