Freedom and Friends.

You may have noticed that I haven't been visiting all my friends lately. Well I can tell you that it was my humans fault. They locked me up for eleventy hundred and three days while they went cruising the Baltic and Scandinavian countries. I was not happy with them and said I am staying on this case so they can't go away again.

Then mum told me that they had met Aiti of Punapippuri and family. It was a great coincidence that Karin was in Helsinki the day before their ship arrived but wasn't flying home until the following evening which meant they could all meet up.

They had a good walk around with several coffee stops, and mum and dad said they had a very enjoyable day together. Mum told me that King P and family had sent lots of treats for me and for them also.

There are some dried fish that I have never seen before, some special home grown catnip, freeze dried chicken treats and chicken fillet treats. There is a tin which mum says is for her and has lots of delicious human treats for her and my dad. The picture of Punapippuri is a magnet which she has put beside her magnet of me and Eric. There is a lovely card with Pekka on it too.

Hmm, this smells good.

What is it? I have never seen anything like that before.

Do I eat it?

*tentative lick*

Oh yeah, This tastes good!

Give me another one!

That's better, mum is breaking them up for me.

I was so interested in those fishies that I almost forgot my special Finnish catnip.

This is good stuff!

Very good!

*deep inhale*

It's so good it even made me give Pekka a thank you kiss.

Thank you Aiti, Punapippuri and family for my delicious treats. Mum says I have to wait to open the other two bags because I am too much out of it to appreciate them right now.
I will let you see the treats that mum and dad were given whilst I dream of crunchie fishies and Finnish nip.

Jackie: It looks like I had better take over as Flynn is in his own world of flying pigs and horses on sofas at the moment.
Thank you Karin for the lovely selection of dried fruits and chocolate and the salted licorice.

Thank you also for the fridge magnet and translation.
We had a great time meeting you and hope you can make it to Devon next year.

How awesome that your humans got to meet up with Aiti! I saw the blog post from Puna about it, and I knew I'd be seeing yours shortly thereafter! It looks like you got really awesome gifts!

Flynn! That's quite the haul you got there. How cool that your humans got to meet Aiti...but we're glad they're home now.

Punapippuri said...

You are very, very welcome! We were delighted to send Äiti to meet your Humans, and we are even more delighted you like the presents we sent. The dried fishies are a delicacy. And as for the salmiakki for humans (salty liquorice) it is a Finnish speciality! We have plenty more nip this year we can send you - it looks like it has had a good effect. And Pekka thanks you, from one orange mancat to another, for the kiss! Äiti sends her good wishes to your Humans and hopes to visit you in the fur next summer.
Blogging rocks!

Well it looks as though your mum and dad have really made up for leaving you with all those goodies. Lots of fabulous stuff you were given from the lovely Alti. I bet it was the highlight of your mum and dad's trip meeting up with her and hearing all the stories of their place, fabulous. Glad they had such a lovely trip and glad you have them back home with you. X
