This is for those of you who want to see more cat pics on the blog. Sometimes it's hard to tell that we have about a dozen cats, just judging from the number of cat pics here...
This here is the kitten that so far only goes by the nickname Snuttis. Not much of a name*, but so far it's all we've got. With Sötis gone, Snuttis is his brother's, Ulle-gull's, only playmate (Ulle-gull is an even worse name than Snuttis* -- so sorry, Ulle-gull!). Snuttis mommy is called Mimi -- you can see a photo of her e.g. here.
On Flickr I call this photo Solkatt. That literally translates to "sun cat" (which is exactly what you see in the photo, a cat in sun, though the photo editing has made the background darker than in the original), but it's actually a swedish word for reflections of the sun that you can see e.g. on a wall or ceiling.
Despite the headline I've no real intention to post a new cat pic every week as some sort of weekly feature. The name of the post just sort of happened. I could probably be persuaded to do such a feature if someone begged me or if there were an overwhelming interest, but it's nothing that's planned.
* = Snuttis is a term of endearment and a diminutive used for cute little pets or sometimes human babies. Not sure exactly how to translate it. Snutte and snuttis are also diminutives for comfort objects (snuttefilt = security blanket). Ulle-gull means something along the lines of woolly-cutie. But in Swedish it at least rhymes. Sötis, as mentioned earlier, means sweetie and is also a diminutive.
PS! A comment on an earlier post reminded me that I still haven't published a "Potato season part 2" post (on potato harvest; I sometimes get questions about the machines and while it can feel like a dull subject to me, some are really curious). Will do that soon. I think. No promises, but I've had the photos since last year so it's about time to show them.
