Leevi kissa


Leevi had a little wound in his head and it did not heal by itself.
Minnie iloisena metsässä


When Minnies was almost 1 year, she started to eat raw food. It has worked well until now at least. On spring 2018, when Minnie’s left inner ear was removed, I briefly discussed the possibility of allergy with the vet. Minnie has very narrow ear channels, which I think was the cause of the problem

More ticks than ever

We have been quite lucky here with not too many ticks. It has now changed. I need to take out one or more ticks every day from the cats. Earlier it was just time to time but never like this, daily. The dogs are much better thanks to the big pond I have in my

Mickie’s 1st birthday

Time really flies. Today Mickie turns 1 year. And he was just a little boy a while ago. Now he is almost a grown man. We took some photos of his day + traditional raw meat cake was served. Happy birthday Mickie.

Hiding from the dogs (ASMR)

Hiding from the dogs in the forest. Instead of using their noses, the dogs run like crazy. Video reporting.

Hunting in the wrong place

The new cat was allowed to go out after getting to know his new home for a couple of weeks. He was very interested in looking at the environment and a bit of fearful towards the rooster who is huge by size. Then he was taken inside again. The next time did not go as

New cat

We have a new cat here. He is quite a tough boy as seem to get along fine without eating too much. The stress of moving to a new place must have played some part. He just refused to eat. I tried very hard to get him to eat, but no success. Finally, a couple

Vuosi vaihtui vähän rankemmin

Vuosi vaihtui. Eikä niin miellyttävissä merkeissä. 5.1. tuli jäähyväisten aika ihanalle Aino-vuohelle. Ei ehtinyt edes 2 vuoden ikään. Aino alkoi marraskuun lopulla horjumaan

Happy new year

Happy new year to all flatties and their owners. Others too 🙂 The year is about to change. Hopefully the year 2019 will be much better for all of us than 2018. There are good memories from the year 2018, but also tragedies: Alfie went to the rainbow bridge in February Eddie followed Alfie in

New kid on the plot

Mickie, Kalexas Dunrobin Castle, arrived in Finland at the end of August. He has “big boots” to fill after Eddie & Alfie. Mickie is from beautiful and mountainous Norway, so he needs to get used to more flat Finland. Luckily Vihti (the area where we live) is not as flat as Finland in general. He adapted

The boys will always live in my heart as long as I live.

Happiness is a house full of flattie energy.

RIP Eddie

Eddie, Wheathold Tom Kitten 10.4.2007 – 29.6.2018 Friday, June 29th, was a very sad day: It was time for Eddie to go to the other side. Less than a month ago he was still having walks in the forest (video).  A bit more than a week ago, I started giving him painkillers. I came home

Water fun for the dogs

Finland has been very hot lately, so the dogs have fully enjoyed the pond in the garden (plot). Lidl is selling some cool stuff for dogs which I bought. We have had the ball thing earlier and it must have been “fully used” because it’s no longer with us. The other one was totally new

The benefits of remote work for dog owners

Remote work is more flexible than working in the office for 9 to 5. You'll get to spend more time with your dogs and lower you own stress levels.

Is insurance needed for dogs?

About insurance fees in Finland and some calculations if they are worth it.

Eddie 11 years

Eddie turned 11 years on April 10th. He had a nice walk in the forest rolling in the fresh snow and enjoying the sunshine. For dinner raw meat cake. What a treat!
