This week's #caturday  photo has Keksi looking from inside the improvised cave I made for her from pillows and blankets. She seems to enjoy these creations I've been making for her lately.

Happy birthday, Roy!

I'm listening to the Blade Runner soundtrack to celebrate the occasion.
 
In case you need a reason to eat birthday cake... here's one! 
Yep, Roy Batty of Blade Runner was born on the 8th of Jan 2016 And for your birthday calendar: Leon's inception date is the 10th April 2017 Fee

The left side of this photo was taken when Keksi was a scrawny kitten and almost fit into a chicken nugget box. The right side of this photo was taken today, over a decade later and even though the perspective makes her look smaller than she really is, it's easy to see that her mere tail is now longer than a roughly similar-sized nugget box.

(although she's still playful, she didn't even try to fit through the box this time :) )

Couldn't resist optimising for this nice number sequence'ish AP figure while playing Ingress. 😁

To my great sadness Noki passed away earlier this week due to a sudden illness :( This photo of her was taken about eleven years ago, when she was still almost a kitten. During the subsequent years she provided a lot of affection and enjoyment. I miss her inhuman beauty, grace and eccentric personality, her startling kamikaze runs between my legs accompanied by loud warbling, the feeling of a warm furball curling against me and purring contently during the night, even the way she went regularly to scratch my camera bag and then ran to me purring happily as she had managed to get my attention. And countless other things.

Her friend Keksi is doing reasonably well; she clearly misses her and wants human companionship a lot more than usual (being more with her is good for me as well) , but fortunately her appetite has not suffered, nor are there other really worrisome changes in her behaviour, so I think she'll be OK.

I will still post caturday pictures of her occasionally in the future, although probably not right away. Rest in peace, my fluffy friend. :(

Keksi spends the #caturday  night by dozing off. Her handsome head is resting both against the bedpost as well as the metal rail connecting it to the other bedpost, which looks somewhat uncomfortable from human point of view, but she doesn't seem to mind.

As I knew there would very likely be mist over the sea due to the combination of still partially unfrozen sea and -20°C temperature, I spent an hour photographing the scenery on my way to work. I think I have now frostbite on my right thumb, but I also think this sight was worth it! :)

Thanks +Antti Kuokkanen! The truly golden moment only lasted a minute or so when the rising sun still partially covered by the mist, but for once I was at the right place at the right time :)

"After the coffin experience, I realised I should try to live a new style of life," says Cho Yong-tae as he emerges from the casket."

Running away from that company, fast, might be a good first step for the new lifestyle?
Companies in South Korea are getting their staff to take part in their own pretend funerals to make them appreciate life.

Keksi is a genuine nocturnal cat; she tends to spend the early morning hours awake watching what happens on the outside.

I wonder if this would work as a printed wallpaper? :P

Any reasons why it wouldn't ? The pictures would be identical

A nice place for lunch. Can be a bit crowded at peak lunch time. As a bonus there are usually art exhibitions and other culture-related stuff around the rest of Kaapelitehdas if you're interested about arts.
