I like cats. A lot. Yet I do not “own” a cat. That’s mostly because I don’t want to confine a cute little being to my current box of a flat. A flat I’ll be moving out of in two years. But alas, maybe I’ll tell some more about my relationships to cats through pictures of cats since I’ve decided to share them through this blog. As I don’t have a cat currently I may not have a new picture every week, but I’ve got plenty of pictures and stories in the archives. However, let’s start with a fresh one.

Last Saturday we were celebrating the 30th birthday of my brother and a friend of his. The party was held at Lohtaja (a town near Espoo). Near the end of the trip to the party we stopped at home of my brother’s friend. Suddenly, two wild cats appear (not really wild, I’m trying to make a lame Pokemon joke here)! Of course I was sitting comfily trapped at the backseat of Ford Ka (no doors for backseats) so I couldn’t just run out and pet them to death. Instead I grabbed the camera and quickly took a photo through the window of the car. The kit lens for my Olympus E-PL2 doesn’t have a huge zoom factor so I had to do a bit of cropping, hence the poor quality. But still: cats fighting playfully!
