Farewell 2017

This picture means a lot to Äiti: the rose is on a special grave. Despite the snow, the beautiful veins in the petals are strong within the fragility, and there is a spirit of life despite the weight of the cold.
We're not sad to say farewell to 2017, as it has been a tough year for us and so many other felines and humans.  We are or course welcoming 2018 with open paws - bring it on!


  1. Purrs to Äiti and here's to 2018!

  2. It is a beautiful rose for a handsome boy. Hugs.
    Eric had a single rose left on his bush over his grave which lasted from the end of November and right through the gales and torrential rain. When we went away on 23rd December, one solitary petal had dropped. It was as if he was holding on to it for as long as he could for us. When we came back home they had all dropped but I was amazed that the one flower lasted over 6 weeks.
    I also will be glad to see the back of 2017.

  3. Hugs and purrs to all of you. We wish you a happy 2018 ! Purrs

  4. Yesh. Thank You Catio Tales gang, Äiti and KIITOS our KING PPP. Have a better year Catio Tales gang -
    this upcoming one and many, many after that.

    Our servant is quiet moments like that, like you know.

    Lilla-Ebba, Max, Tepsu and staff

  5. Happy New Year! 2017 hasn’t been 100% great, but not totally bad either. Mourning our beloved boys...

  6. Remembering the most adorable baby kitty ever.


We love comments from our Loyal Readers, even though Äiti is really bad at commenting back. But please don't let that stop you......

Saa kirjoitta suomeksikin - Äiti on laiska, mutta on pakko oppia suomea.

Tervetuloa! Welcome!
