Lazy Caturday

Hello friends! We are enjoying a nice and slow Caturday morning. Mom is considering painting some walls, I'm just chilling like I usually do.

Have a great weekend!

About cat toys

Good to hear that I'm not getting old, and good to know that there are likeminded kitties out there. Anyhow, sometimes I find my own toys, in unexpected ways. When my mom paid good money for the toy she brought me a couple of days ago, I found a very exciting toy, that didn't cost a penny.

Meet a grey hair elastic (or what do you call these...), that was left inside a library book mom brought home, probably left there by a previous lender. It dropped on the floor, I found it and now I own it. Had a blast with it this afternoon. We cats can be so resourceful!

New toy!

Mom bought me a new feathery toy just like that. Maybe she was trying to compensate for all the time she nowadays spends knitting instead of playing with me. Seriously, I think her knitting is getting out of hands. Anyways, I played with the new toy for like five minutes, and then I got bored with it. Am I getting old?

So I got hungry...

You kitty friends must know the feeling, at the whee hours of the night when hunger suddenly strikes...

...and a fresh bag of kibble has been left on the table. I just had to open it in my own way, and take a few.

So what my kibble bowl was almost full of the same stuff, this was still better!

Have a good weekend!

Summer is kind of over, at least for mom and the big one, who have returned to work. The kids still keep me company for a week.

We have enjoyed summer, cottage life and lazyness. The weather hasn't been that hot, but we think we've had warm and sunny enough for our needs.

So the everyday routines will be implemented step by step from now on. Well, for my staff of course, I keep on chilling on this sofa just like before.

Have a great week friends!

Our summer has been proceeding nice and slow, really taking it day by day. Doing stuff that seems doable at the time. Sometimes it's a lot, sometimes it's barely nothing. At the summer cottage or at home. Weather has been very flexible, and we try to adjust to that. Mom has been mostly staying away from technical devices, so there aren't that many pictures of me neither.

But here I am, enjoying my favourite bush in our garden. I hope you are enjoying your summer doing whatever you like doing the most!

Greetings from the lake!

Guys, it's been a while again! But I'm alive and kicking, currently living the high life at the lake.

Yesterday was all about roaming outside catching mice and tasting real-live-dead-fresh-fishes.

Today I have been also chilling inside the cottage voluntarely, fresh air makes a kitty tired.

We celebrate the midsummer here, the sun doesn't really go down at all.

Happy weekend to you!

Happy Caturday!

It's finally the time for summer vacation. At least for the kids. Mom and the big one still have some weeks left to work.

Well, none of their schedules really concern me, it's business as usual for us kitties. I'm just hoping the kids won't bother my daily napping schedule too much...

Back in business

Oopsie, a slight pause in blogging just happened. First mom claimed to be too busy, and then they went on a holiday! I guess our beloved country has been too chilly this spring (and it still is...), so the humans went to get their dose of warmth and sun from Spain. You won't guess what I did while they were away...

No kitty hostel this time, but a bed and breakfast at a young couple (a colleague of mom) who had a cat too! I had a blast!  Before the holiday, we went for a test visit to see if me and their (neutered) mancat would get along, and we did just fine. He was very friendly and curious of me, and after a couple of days I warmed up and started to show some interest for some playtime together. I guess kitty friends are  cool even in IRL! Now I'm back home, and I haven't even felt the need to protest on any way. Well, at least so far...

Have a nice evening you all!

Busy times

Mom has been too busy for me lately, she has all kinds of excuses. Anyhow, this weekend is also filled with all kinds of celebration, kids birthday and mothers day. So here's an old picture of me in a funny napping position. 

Have a happy weekend!

Sunny and quiet afternoon, napping and stretching on a sunpuddle.

Looks can be deceiving though, sunlight is pretty but the weather is still so cold. It's been snowing still in some parts of our land. Summer seems so far away...

The Great Morning Snooze

Some mornings are just better than the others. Today, after half of the family left early for a sports tournament, me and mom got to continue our sleep in the bed.

You know when the bed is somehow extra fluffy and warm, the morning sunlight is just right, and only happy thoughts and dreams are welcome to your head.

And when it feels like the sheets could almost swallow you. Then everything is pretty good.

Mom claimed that I was even snoring that quiet little kitty snore, but I don't admit that. But anyhow, it was one of my top 5 morning naps.

Have a peaceful Sunday!

Crazy days...

Yesterday and today have been pretty crazy, one of the kids had his birthday party. That means a bunch of kids running around the house and garden like crazy. Obviously these zen-like pictures aren't taken during the party. But now things are back to normal again. Happy Caturday to all of you!

Morning light

There was this gorgeous sunlight this morning, and I think it's every kitty's duty to go and enjoy it. So I did.

I hope you had a nice day!

May Day, May Day

The first of May, I got to celebrate it by going outside. It had been snowing (I kid you not) a couple of days, but now we have sunlight. And hard wind which kind of neutralizes the warmth of the sun, but we take what we get.

I found an interesting red feather from the garden to play with. I thought it must have belonged to a very exotic bird, but apparently it was just a left over decorations from Easter. Anyways, it was fun to chase it.

My staff had a day off today, but tomorrow it's back to business. See you!

Lazy Caturday

Mom always finds this napping position of mine amusing, I don't know why. It's been a lazy cozy day. Let's keep it that way. 

Friday, 28 April 2017


Mom has a day off, and she plans to spend it cleaning the house. I think it just proves her lack of imagination. Allthough there is a point, after I took a detour under the bed, I got myself all dusty. 

So let me just find a calm spot somewhere out of her way to take a nap, and she can start hoovering.

Have a happy weekend!

Mother Nature, we don't get you...

This spring has surely been interesting. The weather is colder than usual, and just as we were finally promised some warmer weather, we get some snow and strong winds. Sigh.

As usual, Facebook and the internet is filled with funny pictures about the strange weather situation we are dealing with, trying to cheer us up. I just have to share a couple of them here...

Translation for the second pic; Here's a ready cut out for seasons greetings for various Finnish holidays:
- Peaceful Christmas!
- Happy Easter!
- Cheerful First of May!
- Sunny Midsummer!
It really seems like this now...

And,  here's a weather forecast, that still a couple of days ago promised sunshine and + 10 / + 15 degrees celsius.

This is me, observing the situation that reminds us an awful lot of good old white Christmas.

Mother Nature, we are not amused...

New header!

It seems that mom's blogging inspiration is almost getting out of hands, now she made a new header for me. What do you think?

Let's see how long this inspiration will last...

Rainy day, sunny evening

Just casually posing and sunbathing here on this lovely sunpuddle. The sun in the spring is just so lovely when it decides to show up. Sun, you have been missed!

A lap cat

I'm not really a cat who likes to sleep on a humans lap, but sometimes I get a feeling and do that anyways. Today was one of those days, and mom decided to take a picture of this rare happening.

Now there is evidence in the internet, that Carlos can indeed be a lap cat if he feels like it.

See also my dented ear? It looks a bit sad but we don't care. Carlos is still Carlos, even with mismatching ears.

Sunny greetings!

Spring is coming slooooowlyyy, snow has melted but it's still quite cold. Well, we'll just have to wait.

I've get to go outside quite often, which is very nice.

Have a nice Caturday!

Quite a birthday...

Some birthday I had last Monday... I got a ride to the vet, and a sedative shot on my butt. The rest of the evening was a bit fuzzy I must say. Ok, now this sounded very serious, which luckily wasn't the case.

I've had a strange bump on my other ear, that my staff had been wondering what it was. It didn't bother me, but they decided that the vet should take a look at it. So off to the vet we went. 

She took a look at the ear, and stated that it was a harmless "blood-ear", common to many dogs with floppy ears and shaking their heads. Apparently a blood vessel had bursted in my ear, and there was a bump full of blood. The vet emptied the bump, put some meds in it and gave a cheer-me-up shot. All clear.

So, the rest of the evening was quite fuzzy when I was recovering from the trip. 

Tired and fuzzy...

Too tired to play with a box...

Mom took an advantage of my tiredness, and held me on her lap for a long while. I don't usually stay like this for long. Didn't mind this setup though.

This is me today, fully recovered from the incident. Allthough my operated ear will remain a bit dented. Mom says that it just adds to my character, and I believe her.

Have a great Caturday!

One of you asked me what I've been destroying lately, and as it happens, I have been quite active on that front! 

See this lovely cardboard box, it was just waiting to be scratched! AND to make things even more interesting, the box was high on top of the closet when I did it.

I'm still working on the smaller box...
