Yesterday I was in Riihimäki together with friends. We visited three museums. Riihimäki Art Museum, The Finnish Glass Museum and the Historical Museum.
As you can see, it was a such a beautiful crispy sunny winter day. Look at the gorgeous, friendly, cuddly cat we met near the Glass Museum. He would have loved us to stay longer to pet him. I think he too enjoyed the lovely winter day. We walked from the railway station to all the different museums. Even if we took a taxi from the Glass Museum to the last museum, the Historical Museum, there was not much time for the visit there. On the way back home I wish I could have stopped the train to take photos of the most gorgeous sunset in a long time. I tried to shoot through the window but the train run too fast.
Jacky’s favorite place for the last two weeks has been under the Christmas tree. Yesterday we to, Jacky’s disappointment, took it out. The living room looks so empty 🙂 But, good thing is no more needles 😉
About two weeks ago I bought the Azalea. It had no flowers in bloom yet but many buds. After a couple of days I thought they would not flower at all. But, now look. So beautiful !
The beautiful hyacinths are from a dear friend for the independence day. There is a lovely cent from them.
And then Jacky. When I started to photograph the flowers he so much wanted to be there. I was afraid he would destroy the flowers and had to put him into the bedroom until I was ready. Oh how happy he was when I let him out and allowed him to hop up onto the table.
Already long ago I mentioned to my husband I’d like to have a shelf on or above my writing desk. Last week at IKEA I saw a TV unit/table which would fit perfect as a shelf. Jacky is convinced we bought it just for him 😉
I read about this book on two different blogs I follow. The other one is Katzenworld and the other Rohvannyn, Mindflight who also does have a story in it. I ordered it online from Adlibris and it arrived last week. I began reading it in the beginning of this week and have, so far, read two stories. I am sure I will like all of the stories and the illustrations are so very cute. Good thing is. Each book purchased will help support work of International Cat Care. Today I saw Jacky using the book as a pillow when napping. My husband says he thinks I should, every evening, read one story at bedtime for Jacky.
In the spring we talked to the vet about when to have Jacky castrated. I asked should it had been done already because I read it’s usually, now a days, done at an much earlier age than we have had it done to our other cats. Usually by the time they show signs of marking their territory. He said it’s okay to have it done later. Come back after the summer vacations. On Wednesday we took him there and had the procedure done. The vet said he needs to wear the plastic collar for twelve days. I don’t think none of our other cats needed to wear a collar for that many days. But, if it’s how it must be then be it. He soon learned how to master the thing. I’m afraid he thinks he must wear it for the rest of his life. I tell him every evening only so many more days and you will get rid of it. I bet he will be ever so happy when we take the collar off. Only eight more days to go.
