In Norwegian cat-wash means a short, simple wash, but I think this term is misleading, because cats are very carefully licking all parts of their body.
Sia found a proper place to have her wash this morning, in the laundry basket!
She took her time and in the end she looked like she had been going round and round in the washing machine. The unsharp photo made the impression even more ridiculous!

I have my own way to get into the house. I climb up a large pine tree, jump from one of the branches to the banisters of the porch 3 feet above the ground, prance along the banister and take a short breake and look inside before jumping down on the floor and tilt the hatch up and sneak into the living room.
Mum has shot the photo through the window.

An intruder has strayed into my area - I do not like to have strangers sneaking around the house. What do they want?
It is best to chase them away in case they have sinister intentions ... this one was hard to scare! He stayed long, longer than I could accept!
Eventually, he was sensible and slunk slowly away with his tail between his legs!
Some cats that I know, are welcome to pass my territory, I don' t mind them hanging around. I actually like visitors.

She is the cat of Hanne and Mum's son Magnus. She goes with them to Lia, but I stay home.
This Easter Mum's sister which gives me food, complained that I did not eat. That's not true, but I have no appetite when I am alone in the house.
Pus is a ship's cat, the race which have six toes on each paw in order to walk steady on deck when the waves make the ship rock!
And she is heavy, twice my weight, at least!

the Polish cat, Toffi, coming by car all the way from Poland to Fredrikstad to stay with his family.
Toffi was found abandoned in the streets by the family Glugla six years ago.
Now he is a strong and cheerful cat enjoying life so far in the livingroom, because in the garden there are a lot of cats which he must challenge to to have his own territory. I think he can gain respect!
He is always on the run and curious about my Mum's Iphone, so there was a problem taking a good portrait of him.
I think he must have gens of a Norwegian Forest Cat - he has the similar markings as my grand aunt Nøste had.
The Norwegian Forest Cat is a breed of domestic cat native to Northern Eurpe, and adapted to a very cold climate, with top coat of glossy, long, water-shedding hairs, and a woolly undercoat for insulation. Although this is uncertain, the breed's ancestors may have been short-haired cats brought to Norway by the Vikings around 1000 AD, and may also have included the long-haired Siberian and Turkish Angora.
During World War II, the breed became nearly extinct until efforts by the Norwegian Forest Cat Club helped the breed by creating an official breeding program. Currently, the Norwegian Forest Cat is very popular in Norway, Sweden, Iceland and France.
And all cat girls be aware, Mister Charming is soon coming out.... smack!

I must say, I am not a pet for children any more in an age of 72. I like to have comfort, rest and peace, in other words I like to have full control myself! When Mum had a visitor, eleven years of age, who would like to play with me, I hid behind the sticking plant and stayed there till she had left the house!
I put my eyes on her in order to say, leave me alone!
I know it's Valentine's Day today, so I give my love to all my cat friends in the world of blogs.
