Kajsa vs Tessa

About Hippie And Conservative Cats

Feline Friends, do you sometimes feel that you don’t get the privacy you need?

I was resting on my favorite chair in granny’s flat when those stupid humans got excited. Granny and Mom had talked about our sleeping habits earlier: whilst Tessa sleeps in all possible and impossible positions, I prefer to be… eh… more “conservative“. Hippie Tessa may shamelessly flash her belly, but I want to keep control.

Apart from this one weak moment. Granny – what a traitor!!! – called Mom and took pictures!! Bah.

It took Mom 2 months to discover that I’ve a brown belt on my white tummy (you can see it on the first picture). She was so happy to show it to granny. Eh?? They ARE really hopeless, those humans.

Private bouncer

Oh, what I forgot to mention yesterday: the black cat incident happened before Kajsa dared to go out as well. She’s now a regular in our garden. Definitely bad news for the black cat because he tried to “make friends” with her as well. Let’s put it that way – I’ve never seen him in our garden after that. He doesn’t even pass our house when we’re outside: he’s either changing his route or running away as soon as he sees Kajsa.

I’m a bit surprised that she scared him off as she’s much smaller. She has only threatened him once with an arched back, fluffy tail and growling. Oh King P., maybe Aila isn’t that bad after all?

The white-brown knight

Tessa was of course first when we finally could use the second floor again. She’s always the braver one, and she loves to explore new places.

how do cats react to a new flat

Kajsa really surprised me. She usually makes herself as small as possible when she’s entering a new room. She’d never stand in the middle of a new room, but always hide for some time in a corner. Ok, she wasn’t as excited as Tessa, but look how self-conscious she is nowadays!

She’s of course still more careful than Tessa, and wants to inspect everything.

It makes me so happy to see her progress. This is a great success for us.

Step By Step

cat loves to be in staircaseWe were so exited when we got our staircase back – oh, yes, guess how much we hated this construction work.

Tessa was as always the first one to explore – as I said, curiosity killed the long-haired cat. She’s typically more interested in the big stuff – so she was running up and down, because she loves stairs.

I was of course more careful – never trust a human. Or anyone for that matter. So I was very busy that night – I had to sniff everywhere and mark my territory. Again. Sigh. Why do humans think that paint smells better than me?? Oh, and no, I’m not leaving peemails: I’m scent marking with my cheeks and paws.

The green armchair

Why this place is better than ours, Part I

I know, Kajsa said that she wants to go home, but I’m not too sure. One of the great benefits of our vacation home is its variety of furniture. Dear feline friends, do you have your own armchair? I’ve never seen a human sitting on this chair, so I assume that grandpa bought it for me.

cat has her own chair

It’s great that Mamma will ship this chair to Finland when we’re going back, because it’s rude to leave gifts behind, isn’t it?

If only Kajsa understood that this is MY chair! Look at those evil eyes!! I think Mamma should protect me and make Kajsa go away! Mamma says that  (more…)

Who let the cats out, who who who

It was me!
cat enjoying our gardenI did something pretty unusual – I took my girls out without thinking too much. I know there are proper leash training guides, but I decided to go with my guts. We just go out, and I’m learning by doing. And now I’m going wild – I didn’t even come up with proper routines. Ok, there’s one: they’ll always get their beloved dry food afterwards; I want them to look forward to something when they get in.

Well, “they” is an exaggeration. (more…)

Tessa’s 15 minutes of fame

Tessa writing.

bird perspective on catsI just had to take over today, because you hurt me. Yes, YOU! All of you! You’re happy that Kajsa is getting better, but what about me? I was actually quite satisfied with Kajsa when she was sick. She didn’t boss me around AND I had Mamma for myself. Now I’m under her paw again and Mamma isn’t solely playing with me. Bah.

cat uses trash can as litter trayI made sure I had my big moment though. Mamma was cleaning the litter trays, and again, she wasn’t considering my needs. I decided that I had to pee when Mamma had emptied the last tray. I know, we cats aren’t known for being flexible, but I think it’s more important to confuse humans: it’s dangerous when they think that they’ve understood us felines. So I decided to be flexible. My litter tray is where my litter is, so I climbed on the trash can and peed. It was the perfect timing – long enough for Mamma to stare in disbelief, short enough for a picture. I also made sure to throw some litter on the floor that Mamma had just cleaned. So yes, I was quite satisfied with myself.

Mamma: P.S. Kajsa is back to normal today. She’s been playing with her ball, bossing Tessa around and stressing me a lot. She’s still eating more than she normally does, but that’s great, because she is no big eater.

My doggy cat: Kajsa’s most favorite game

Kajsa is a great cat for lazy servants. She likes to sit on my belly for hours, and you don’t even need to move when she wants to play: she’s a bit of a dog, because she likes to fetch balls.

In case you’re wondering what I’m saying: (Urg. Isn’t it always awful to hear your own voice on tape?)
tuu tänne – come here
hyvä(ä) – good , well done

Poor Tessa understands tuu tänne, but she doesn’t get the idea of the game. You can see her in the end of the video, she looks confused.

Late at night when Mamma is sleeping…

Austin from Austin Towers gave Kajsa and Tessa an important advice:

Take it from me! Never underestimate a human!! Was my big mistake!

Tonight, Kajsa and Tessa taught me a lesson: never underestimate a cat!

I was profoundly convinced that they couldn’t open zippers. I was also sure that they would stay away from this bag.  (more…)
