This Land Is My Land

We’ve been having so much fun on our trip, and I’m so glad you’ve all been coming along with us. It's like you're all there with us. The Magic Carpet is now completely floof covered.

When I mentioned to my SIFs (MoMo, Miss Kitty, and Siena) that there was a land nearby named after me, they all said we needed to go. Can you guess where we went next? That’s right, Finland!
As soon as we landed in Finland we met up with some of the native cats. They were very excited when they learned my name was Fin. They were so welcoming of the Norwegian Four that they took us all around town. We saw all the amazing sites, and met many of the fine people of the land. Naturally we wanted to see the forests in Finland too. Here we all are checking things out.

Finally it was time to leave, as the crowds were getting a bit thick at our appearences. I was given this special gift by the Finnish cats and their familes.

I don’t think it will be permanent there, more of a special edition, but I’ll be flying it over the house with pride when I get home.

MoMo wanted to check out Lapland too. I have to admit that I thought it was going to be something totally different than it turned out to be. It was great, but I was distracted (looking for the laps, which I imagined would be everywhere).

It’s been a grand adventure with my floofy sisters but this cat is anxious to get home to the land of Mommy lap. I’ll be offline tomorrow and then Tuesday I’ll be back to business as usual at my happiest place on earth, home.

Maybe I should go and visit the Mawson Base in Antarctica. It's named after me, after all! Your adventure has been great fun Fin.

How wonderful that you went to Finland Fin! You must have all been such celebrities there. The flag will look wonderful flying above your desert home. We chuckled at you looking for the laps of Lapland (nice one). I hope your journey home is safe and your Mommy has her lap warmed and ready for you.

Oh no, please don't tell me that Lapland isn't filled with squillions of comfy laps. The existence of Lapland gave me hope that maybe there were such places as Scritchland, Snuggleland, and Temptationland. I don't want to hear any more. La la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la!

Wasn't that a great trip?! I loved mixing our furs on the magic carpet! My mom said, I gained some floof during the trip (or was it "fat" she said?)... Hihihi, that's what's growing up is for!
I would love to visit you some day in the desert.

And to have a whole country named after you, that is quiet awesome, Fin!
