Traditions an Award and Hug Your Cat Day.

We are having some lovely sunny weather and that means more walks for me. I sniffed in all my usual places when suddenly I got a whiff that made the fur on my back stand up.

Then it made my tail floof just a little bit.

And then it floofed a lot!

I needed to lay down to get a really good sniff and find out what was going on.

Then I remembered what Eric always used to say. "If in doubt, pee on it." I am not one to break with tradition so of course I did just that.

I won an award last week from Timmy Tomcat. I was one of three who guessed the language of the 6th salutation on their Memorial Day post which was Klingon.
Thanks Timmy and family for my award.
Oops, Mum forgot it was Hug your Cat Day so added this picture of us.

I get lots of hugs from mum and dad.

Ă„iti says can your Mum and Dad give you a hug from her! And we say keep on pee-iing: it is by far the best response to anything unknown :)

Glad you tuned in to catiocam - Sampo was going for a walk beyond the catio, and we were jealously watching. And then she carried the little baby inside. There'll be some photos on the bloggie tomorrow.
