The lumpfree area of Seniora
Good news
Seniora has been back at the vets for a final examination. The lump had actually gone. Most likely it was an infected fatlump. The vets think it was really lucky that she got that cold when she did, so she didn’t have an unnecessary surgery. Seniora herself was last seen marching off in to the sunset when her tail hold high.
Seniora says: “To be honest I am not really sure what that lump was about, but for heavens sake, an infected fat lump? Aren’t they aware that you actually need to have fat to get one of those?!”

Rising DJ sQuil
Good news
A poor tiny pig felt really bad. One of his feet suddenly started to swell up, and shortly after all his legs started to swell up. The poor DJ sQuil was feeling totally miserable, and even sometimes didn’t finish of his dinner. Good advice was hard to come by, as there isn’t much medical research done on minipigs. Still the vets went up to the task, and after a week on human antibiotics and aspirin he is now back in his normal good spirits, and swollen free trotters are back carrying him wherever he wants to go, normally the closest food source.
DJ sQuils say: “Oh my, it is so good to be back. I am sure, it was touch and go there for a while. I even lost my appetite, that’s how ill was! Now, can anyone direct me to the closest breadsource?”

The Sheppard looking out the perfect grass slide hill
Good news
After all most all the citizens (yes, the geese don’t seem to get the bad in bad weather!) have been terrorized by bad weather the last week, today finally there have been traces of something similar to god weather. The citizens weren’t long to que up to make the best out of this situation, and long walks have been observed all over the place.
Sheppard said: “JUHUUUUUU Grass sliding time! Nothing like the felling of sliding down a hill of long grass.”

The Pirat's graduation photo.
Good news
We are happy to announce that the Pirat has passed her hunting exam and hasn’t stopped hunting ever after. We are not sure if we are sad to say this, but insects need to be very careful to avoid the Pirat’s good eyes and sharp beak.
The Pirat say: “I am not really a killing machine, but those proteins sure do me a lot of good!”

Sun and clouds fighting
Weather forecast
It is hard to say, hard to say. We are optimistic of nature then, so we are hoping the sun will outfight those nasty looking clouds.
The dogs recommend you to be prepared for everything!


Now that yet another hen has passed her hunting exam we do as normal recommend all our members to flee the Maifrin area as fast as possible.
Remember our motto: “We like food, not to be food!”

Seniora took some incredible high points for this manoeuvre.
Bad weather cat chess
As you all know the Maifrin cat citizens are playing cat chess at the upper international level. They don’t let anything stop them practising this wonderful sport, not even bad weather (something that normally stops cats in the most ways). Off course everybody understands that with rain pooring down outside, it would be directly damaging for the cats to play with the normal rules, and they have instead changed to the special developed bad weather rules. The rules are more or less the same, but it is played over a much much smaller area.
Seniora say: “LOL and with this manoeuvre I outplayed both the Model and King Tiny completely!”

What the nest box should have been looking like.
A vandalized egg found near by.
Crime against egganity

It is with sadness that we must admit that a thief has been present in our nest. One of our favourite nests what broken into yesterday, and the thief didn’t only steel the egg, but also vandalised the whole area. Shattered pieces of eggshells was found all over the area afterwards. We think the last was an attempt from the thief to try to hide its track, but bad weather can be good for something, so the CSI (Chicken scene investigation) manage to secure several muddy pawprints, leading both to and away from the nest in question. The investigators are hoping for a fast solution on this unfortunate matter.
The Chicken investigator said: “The pawprints collected does indeed match one we all ready have in our database.”

 How blood works
Pending her upcoming surgery Seniora had her blood work done. The results was very promising indeed, stating what Seniora off course all ready knew. Her body might be old, but not particularly frail, as the result told her body was working just as well as a 5 years old.
Seniora gave the following official statement: “Nothing I didn’t all read know perfectly well!”

Beauty searching for good weather.
Weather forecast
There are tiny blue spots all over the sky.
The dogs recommend you to keep the hope going.

Seniora is ill!

Keep those get well snacks coming! Keep them coming!!
Today we have heartbreaking news for you.
Saturday evening our beloved Seniora told us about a lump in her tummy area, and therefore she was the first guest at the vets as soon as they opened this morning. The vets were not at all happy, and since Seniora is their absolute favourite citizen they even got a second opinion, but the news was equally bad. Seniora have gotten herself breast cancer.
Luckily she is in wonderful shape (especially consider her age) and she is in n pain. Still a surgery has been ordered for the 17/9 and blood work to be done the 11/9.
Seniora is now sleeping of a box of Applaws who we all agreed she needed, but manage to give the following statement before she started to snore: “I didn’t have a nice childhood, I had a hard life and now my plan about a long happy retirement have got a serious dent in it. Still in the meantime you all know where to send your get well applaws/sheebas/porta feline etc.”

Eh NOOOOO noooo nooooo I did not try to dig through that wonderful  looking fence. Not at all actually. 

What the fence!
Whereas some of the citizens seems content with all this fencing coming up, (read humans) it would be an understatement saying that the rest of the citizens are somewhat piffed by the offensive matters. The propaganda that has been going out, claiming that the fencing is for the citizens own protection doesn’t really seem to have hit its mark. Several anti-fencing groups have all ready been founded, and are working hard on a literally break through.
The spokespig of “My food doesn’t need fencing” had the following to say: “We pig are very social and we like to share the food with everybody. This fencing thing makes the food sharing thing very hard. We have all ready noticed that we can no longer share a meal with the sheep and hens. What will be the next, wont we be able to share with the geese either?”

The only cure for weather illness - SLEEPING
 Home sick my tail!
Lately a spell of bad weather has hit our beloved place, and it has hit too hard for most of the citizens taste. The cats have even moved back indoors, and are yet again mass sleeping in the bed.
The Model said: “You know, why o why does some weather responsible seem to think I miss living in the raining capital of the world! I do not! NOT NOT NOT NOT! If I still wanted to live in an area were it rained 320 days per year, at least 100 days in the row, WHY do they think I moved away from that hellish weather? I like my sun, I love my sun! Sun it is! Grrrrrrr all this rain makes my fur really icky. I can’t stand it anymore, please sun, what have they done to offend you, please forgive them and come back to me!”

A happy breaker
A certain citizen wishing the swallows welcome.
 Exotic guests
Nobody likes rains, at least not the citizens and not the swallows who paid us a visit last evening. The poor poor birds were stranded midair when this awful wet stuff come pouring down, and had to seek shelter immediately. Luckily Maifrin was right there (Except that we would off course have liked to be in the sun instead, we have to admit that.) and the poor swallows was off course immediately invited to stay and rest. Which they did. They were last observed flying south.
Mr Purr say: “I invited them to stay, but strangely enough they didn’t take me up on my totally and utterly unselfish offer. How very strange indeed.”

Seniora and a little one 
 The Childhood experience
Not all the citizens has had a wonderful childhood. Some of them would have been happy with only nice, but no. Therefore they all do their best to help the lucky fellows who are born/hatched right here at Maifrin to have to most wonderful childhood they can hope for. So when a little fellow need some extra attention, there is nothing but care coming from the older citizens.
The Sheppard say: “It is our responsibility to take care of those who need it the most. Can I have a puppy? PLEEEEEAAAAASE!!”

Weather forecast
The dogs recommend you to stay DRY!


Rainglasses needed
Citizens are in desperately need of glasses who makes the rain disappear, and give you that nice comfy feeling that only true good weather gives you.
