Hairball Stocking

Bah. Mom said it was typical that I threw up a hairball on her sheets. I don’t understand why she’s irritated. Why can’t she change the sheets if my tiny hairball bothers her so much? Aha – the construction workers have moved some furniture, and that’s why she can’t open the linen closet?

Even for humans it should be clear that the construction workers are the guilty ones here!

So I was quite satisfied with myself and chose an excellent place for dessert… Can you guess where I placed the aftermath?

Postponed Posts show older stories and pictures. So yes, the construction work is finally done, but we had such a long blog break that we need to catch up.

Ok, we really hated the construction work, but loved the chaos it caused. We had tons of great hiding spots, and played with things Mom normally hides, such as headphones and earrings.

It’s hard to choose a favorite, but I really appreciated that I had better access to the most important shelf. Humans are sometimes so careless, and our Mom is no exception. So I decided that she needed some help, and threw down our bowls whenever I was hungry.

You’re wondering why I went for the plates instead for our food? Sigh. Believe me, I tried. I really tried.

The Return of the Queens

Feline friends, I hope you’ll never have to deal with this most annoying human hobby: major construction work as humans will make a LOT of noise and deny cats fundamental rights. We weren’t allowed to go upstairs, and were stuck with Mom in one room for over a month!

Humans have also a funny way of prioritizing. The noise eventually stopped, and the second floor was ours again – but it took another 6 weeks until we got windows! What did they think? Can we cats live without windows? I took a picture to document our torment.

Construction work with Cats

We’ve to admit that we’ve much more space after the construction work. Mom is very happy that all rooms are warm now. We’ve never lived here in winter, but this house was apparently impossible to heat. And the Finnish winter can be very long and cold, even in Southern Finland. Eek. So it was probably good that everything got fixed, but we’re so happy that it’s over now!

There’s just one thing left – how can we make our landlord build a sky lounge?

Spoiler

Dear feline friends,

we’ll be back on track at the end of this week!

We still need some time to get ready, but we’ll see you at the Sunday Selfies! Mom also wants to share some boring bla-bla-bla information about administrative blog stuff, gah. So she’ll do that on Friday or Saturday, because Kajsa and I are going to take over on Sunday!

So long!

The Cats Who Are No Longer Away

P.S. We missed you!

Back To School

cat searching for miceOne weekend later and I’m still too tired. I need all my spare time to relax, watch silly tv shows, and, most important, spend a lot of time with Kajsa and Tessa.

Real life is always more important than a blog, and I don’t have much energy left. I’m sure that most bloggers know what I’m talking about. I decided to take a “longer” break (don’t know for how long, I assume 2-3 weeks?), and be “really back” when I’m back: a longer break now, but regular posts after the break.

Thank you for visiting us, and I’m looking forward to write new posts when I’m back!

I’ve to link to a sad posting now: Ellen’s Lucy has gone over the Rainbow Bridge, and I’m very sorry for her loss.

The Door of Mercy

cats and closed doors

We were thrilled when we read the latest number of The Tower Times. We so agree with Kitty Cat Chronicles and NUCAT (National Unit of Cats):

….doors should become extinct. No more doors!!! We should be able to enter any room or closet we desire at any time.

cats have different personalitiesYou know, there was this one room in granny’s flat – its door was always closed. I don’t know how many hours we’ve been sitting in front of this door, waiting, begging for mercy. And then, on our last evening, the magic happened.

Grandpa: I’ve a special plan for tonight. I’ll open the door for those poor cats.  It’s their last evening here,  and I think they’ve deserved a very special treat.

Isn’t he wonderful? Mamma laughed and said he’s childish, but we think he’s the best grandpa ever! And yes, it was also him who defended us when we destroyed this expensive wallpaper! So why again can’t he live with us in Finland?

You can tell from Tessa’s tail how exited she was when she entered the room. Oh, and don’t get me wrong – I’m also curious, but I’m keeping my strategy: Curiosity killed the long-haired cat. So let’s see what happens to Tessa first…

The story behind the picture

cant take cute pics of my catsHehe. I’m a bit surprised that nobody guessed what they were really doing on this picture.

About 0,0001 seconds earlier, both were watching out the window – Kajsa was sitting on the sill ! A very rare moment – normally they’re only close to each other while hissing. Sigh.

I loved that they were doing something together, and I was foolish enough to fantasize about a cozy picture.Well. They always stop doing something cute the very moment you get your camera, don’t they? I mean, they’ve a reputation to keep.

I’ve been too tired for blogging. I’m trying to return to my old life, a life before mental illness. I’m only working for a few hours a day, but I’m so exhausted afterwards. It’s a pity because I’ve so much material to share, and I’ll try to pre-write some posts during the weekend. And yes, I know: I try to not stress about my blog. It’s just that I’ve so much fun in the cat blogosphere!

Rush hour
