Hi, it´s me Kosmo. I have noticed many cats taking selfies, and I wanted to try, too. I put the camera on the edge of a table and went under on the floor. That was a good idea, but the selfies, hmmm????
Snoops and Kommando Kitty here. Welcome to Cat Forum. We have a very special guest this month: Kosmo, who comes all the way from Finland. We didn’t know where Finland is, so we had to look it up. It is a LONG way from Michigan. And he speaks really good American cat (which is a […]
I see trouble on the way
I see earthquakes and lightnin’
I see bad times today
It’s bound to take your life
There’s a bad moon on the rise
I fear rivers over flowing
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.
The temperature changed from – 30° C/ -22°F to 0°C/ 32°F in Northern parts of Finland. Cranky weather has been very typical here during last months. On Tuesday we had the most beautiful, cold and sunny day. On Wednesday morning it was raining/ snowing and the whole world was dirty gray. Here is below two views from our kitchen window. Quite a difference!
Everything is ready for the summer.
During these first months of a year we have blue moments after a sunset. Everything is blue, the sky, snow, air. Today the sun rose 9.41 and sets 15.26. It is cold now and birds sit up on birches trying to catch every possible sun beam for warming.
This December has been the darkest December ever. Today we saw a tiny piece of blue sky, and we felt the spring is near, behind the corner of three months.
This day is very important for us here in the north. We have counted days and now it is here. The days are getting longer and the light increases day by day. We will see the sun. In the pic is the lightest moment today.
Hi, it´s me, Kosmo, here.
What a surprise! Our Peace Lily has flowers at the darkest time of the year, so special, beautiful flowers. Remember, this is dangerous for cats.
Hi, it`s me, Kosmo, in faraway Finland full of snow.
It has been boring, so I decided to build house for a mouse. I have never seen one, but I know they are small. Here is the whole story in these photos.
No animals were hurt or eaten.
Take care of your humans.
Hi, it´s me Kosmo here. Yesterday all the people and animals had a snow storm in Europe and they got bored to snow and sent it here. It has been snowing the whole day. Everything is covered with white, soft snow. Very beautiful!
What about the butter, you ask now. I love butter! In this pic my dad has butter in his finger for me. Behind me is a window and all you see is white, that´s snow. There is a thermometer in the window, look under my chin, it is 0°C/ 32°F. Not cold at all andl this snow will melt away, again. That may lift water in rivers too high, and there is flood alarm in the West coast.
Take care of your humans!
It´s me, Kosmo, here. This blog has been quiet, too quiet, and you see the reason in the photo above. Here is nobody, here is dark and raining. Wet ground feels terrible in my soft paws. Mom has not rushed out with her camera, no birds, some magpies, no flowers. It looks like we are hibernating until we will see the sun.

This photo is taken at midnight 21th of June. Now it is too dark to take a photo at noon.
Here is sunny music for everybody missing the sun.
The polar night occurs in the northernmost and southernmost regions of the Earth when the night lasts 24 hours. This occurs only inside the polar circles.
In Northern parts of Finland this polar night starts 25.11. In Finnish it is called kaamos. The sun in under the horizon about eight weeks. It is not totally dark , it is soft twlight.
Here in our area the sun doesn´t go under the horizon, but the shortest day, the sun above the horizon, is only about three and half hours.
Black Friday has arrived to Finland. Today was the first time when every shop had Black Friday and – 30%, -50% signs everywhere. In a big mall shops were empty, so this Friday was not big success, but our sky had a great “black clouds” show.
What are you doing in my blog, you old … Ok, just once, or twice, I have to take a nap.
Hi, it´s me Kosmo here. An amazing story in today´s newpaper, a cat named Pörri, is working in Pyhtää municipality. She works in an information office and welcomes all the visitors. She has worked there already seven years. She lives in a nearby house, and is every morning ready to work. She has, of course, an ID card.
Iltalehti newspaper presented Pörri, a working cat, today.
A cat is KISSA in Finnish, I pronounced like i in a word lip and A like a in a word car.
And here she is!
It´s me, Kosmo, a cat in faraway Finland here. And what has happened here? Nothing, I say.
The first snow melted away soon and the it has been raining, raining and raining. I don´t remember a year so rainy as this one, hmm… I am about four years, but rainy anyway.
It is dark here as in a coal mine, never been there though, Midsummer night is brighter than our daytime now. I got my Christmas tree already, it is outside, the lights I will have at the beginning of December. Some cats have the lights on in their yards in this rain, looks like a very sad circus.
Mom has not been blogging at all, so I have to do this, she has been walking, knitting and reading a book with strange letters, like плджщшгцыю, and making strange sounds. So I will be in charge of this blog for a while. I try to read your blogs, I know how to open this machine, lid up, lights on, and a long nail out to the letters, and that´s it. I am going to take a nap just now…
While the Christian holiday All Saints’ Day is generally observed on November 1, the dominant Lutheran churches in Finland have celebrated it on the nearest Saturday since the mid-1950s.
Variously referred to as known as the Feast of All Saints, All Hallows’ Day or Hallowmas, the day honours saints, martyrs and those who have died, especially during the previous year. Finns traditionally mark the day by lighting candles at the graves of loved ones.
The official first snow.
Today we saw the first snowflakes, but they melted away, so we didn´t have the first snow cover. We hope to have warm, sunny days, because October is too early for winter to came.
This hedgehog needs to get more weight for staying alive over the winter. We have helped it with with catfood.
The last butterflies were flying on 26.9. I noticed for the first time during this summer some red admirals in our Japanese hydrangea. This red admiral is quite big, a 45–50 mm (1.8–2.0 in) wingspan.
