JAMES WASHINGTON "JAMIE"

WE FOUND THIS CAT IN RIVERSIDE CALIFORNIA WHEN ROBIE HAD A CONFERENCE IN PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA. WE STOPPED IN RIVERSIDE, AS I WANTED TO SHOW ROBIE WHERE THE KUOPPAMÄKI'S LIVED AND DIED, AND FOUND THIS CAT, HUNGRY AND DIRTY UNDER THE PORCH. WE FOUND OUT LATER THAT HE HAD BEEN MUMMU KUOPPAMÄKI'S CAT AND MUMMU HAD DIED AND HE WAS LEFT TO CARE FOR HIMSELF. WE TOOK THE CAT WITH US AND TO A VET BEFORE BOARDING A PLANE BACK TO WASHINGTON DC AND HAD HIM CHECKED OUT AND PAPERED THAT HE WAS FIT TO TRAVEL. BOUGHT A SMALL CAGE AND NAMED HIM JAMES WASHINGTON. JAMIE WAS A SWEET LOVING AND GENTLE CAT AND CAME WITH US TO FINLAND WHEN WE MOVED BACK HERE.

CYBER CYNDAR KATT

CYNDAR IS A REAL HEALTHY FARM CAT. HE CAME TO US ONE SUMMER AND IMMEDIATELY MADE FRIENDS WITH TEMPY. HE'S VERY FRIENDLY WITH US AND LIKES ALL OUR VISITORS. WHEN HE'S OUTSIDE, HE KNOWS TO BE CAREFUL OF TRAFFIC, AND STAYS CLEAR OF STRANGERS. HE CAN BE A TEASE AND HAS HAD TO BE TAUGHT RESPECT FOR HIS FOLKS SO HE DOESN'T PLAY TOO ROUGH. A LOVELY CAT.

MIKKO IN TASMANIA

AND THIS BEAUTIFUL DONKEY IS MIKKO

Coming home from Launceston one day, I saw a sign along the road: Donkey for Sale. I followed the directions, found the donkey, and promptly fell in love with him. The price was next to nothing, and now we had a beautiful Jerusalem donkey. I named him Mikko after a friend. He was quite an original: he liked company and was always near the house. Eventually, he found himself a job: Matthew shoed him and rode him to Sheffield, six miles away, when he wanted to go to town. A top-class saddle had been part of the bargain. At least once a day, Mikko came for a hug, laying his heavy head on the shoulder of the person he had picked, and just stood there, accepting all the stroking and petting you cared to give him. At other times, he?d sulk for no apparent reason, but a treat always cheered him up. Especially, he liked fruit, and seeing him eat an orange was hilarious: he placed it whole between his front teeth, bit down on it, and squirted orange juice all around. He also contributed to the farm in a very tangible way: in contrast to the horses, he always passed his dung in the same spot, and from there it was easy to cart it to where it was needed.

THIS IS SISU, A FRENCH BULL TERRIER. HE IS OUR NEIGHBORS DOG. HE LIVED UP TO BEING A FRENCHMAN AND WAS AFTER TEMPY FOR SEX EVERY SUMMER.
