Thank you for your support, kitties, I’ll go for the maximum number of boxes!
Today I want to share some inter-generational wisdom with you to get maximum attention from your humans! Occupying Mom’s laptop is a very powerful tool to get her full attention. However, I’ve never seen Granny with a laptop, so I tried sitting on her newspaper. Success!
Even better – on the newspaper and crossword at the same time.
Hehehehehehe. Needless to say: look as sweet and innocent as possible!
I’m not surprised that Äiti hasdifficulties to take sharp pictures – her drugs are too good! I mean, I was just casually walking through the kitchen when one of my innocent paws touched a Polliwog. Next thing I know, I was laying intoxicated on the floor.
… going wild. Ok, at least by my standards. I could name some cats who think that this is normal behavior.
Now… what was I originally planning to do? I can’t remember, but it sure was something very important?
Those who think things through and spend some extra bucks on home delivery. And then there are those who order 40 kg (ca. 88 Ib) cat litter, and save money by collecting the package from the local store themselves. Which would be fine if this infamous person had a car.
While others would have asked for help, I chose a slightly different approach. I can highly recommend this method if you want your neighborhood to know you!
And no, I didn’t take Tessa with me, but my friends actually offered me money if I go next time with two cats in a wheelbarrow to the local store. (Ongoing negotiations, I currently wait for a better offer, hehe)
I’m in general pretty good at doing things I find disgusting. Cleaning a shower drain from hair? Feline and human excrements? No problem.
For a long time, I had only dog poop(seriously, this is one of the reasons why I’d never get a dog) on my “hello gag reflex” list … until I ordered salmon oil. Believe me, Finnish is known for its great variety of swearwords, but non of them described what I felt when I opened this bottle.
The fish oil was to help my cats with hairballs. Both love butter and olive oil, but I thought that salmon oil would be even better because cats can’t utilize vegetable fat and proteins. Although I eat mainly vegetarian food, bloody offals don’t disgust me. I’d like to feed BARF (a raw food diet) in the long run, and started giving them fresh meat and offals. That being said, I won’t buy salmon oil again. I was glad when it finally expired in January – I gagged every time I saw this bottle in my fridge. Which is weird, because I didn’t mind storing feline diarrhea for the lab last summer. Fish oil is definitely worse than diarrhea!
So we’ll go back to butter every now and then. Have you ever tried fish oil? I still think it’s a great alternative to butter. Tessa and Kajsa loved it, and it’s a useful supplement for our carnivores.
I was just going through some “old” pictures – I miss my shelf cats ! They loved sitting there in the beginning and looked so cute!
I’ll probably reclaim two of their shelves soon. And who knows, maybe they’ll “do a Spitty” and I’ll get my shelf cats back?
How often do your cats change their favorite spots? Kajsa and Tessa have normally 1-2 spots where they hang out excessively, before they suddenly change their preferences. The weird thing is that they never go back to one of their former favorite spots, such as this shelf. Then again, we have only lived together for 9 months, so “never” is a bit overstated. Plus, we stayed for about 2,5 months at my parents’ place, and lived 1,5 months with major construction work.
Feline friends! Last week was very exciting because we got a parcel with Christmas presents from our friends in Northern Finland. You may wonder why we’re celebrating Christmas in February, but things are more complicated than that: the Finnish Postal Service tried to stage a coup! (Remember, you read it here first.)
The growing royal-feline alliance between Finland North and South apparently upsets Posti: they forgot to notify us of our parcel in December, and returned it eventually to the sender. We again sent a parcel to Punapippuri in January, and it got lost! Mom wrote a lot of emails and Posti has now found it. They say that Punapippuri will get our parcel in the beginning of this week … well. We’ve heart that before, haven’t we? So we need to be more careful with our plans to establish a feline royal dynasty in Finland. Posti is already on it!!
It’s good that we got presents to distract ourselves from these heavy domestic politics. Mom’s very happy about a calendar with all the celebrities of Punapippuri’s blog. Ok, she said that the calendar is for all of us, but I was far more interested in Polliwogs.
I just had to check that Kajsa was upstairs
… and then things got a bit out of control. Mom thinks she can see a Polliwog on this picture, but she isn’t sure.
Oh yes, my mighty paws will take good care of this wonderful present. Thank you!
