The arctic

While we were at this part of the world it seemed a pity not to venture to the beautiful Arctic circle. Fin was first to suggest it and volunteered to be the guide to show us the wonders of this region.


First, we headed off to Svalbard Island.....

to admire the polar bears from afar.....


This furry was a tad too big for us to take on, even though there were four of us. So we were quite happy to watch him from the safety of our Flying Carpet.

Then, it's time to gasp in awe of the Northern Lights....




Please visit Fin, Siena and Miss Kitty for their stories of our adventure.

Next stop - we are going to Fin's territory on Sunday! Please join us there .

Brrr! The Arctic! It is so beautiful and cold, it must have taken your breaths away! That Polar Bear looks hungry to me, so I'm glad you stayed safe on the carpet. Ohhhhh the Northern Lights!

OOOOOHHHH! Stay away from those polar bears. They are beautiful but they are very hungry and dangerous to kitties! Stay safe and warm!

The Cat Realm said...

WOW.
I wish I could see those lights once - but I think it might be too cold for me....
You guys are just having too much fun!

The Northern Lights are beautiful. Be very careful with the polar bears. We think they are more dangerous than vishus deer.

Momo, did you see us over at Mickey's? Cool, eh? So many floofy cats. I really enjoy our trip but my mom is behaving sort of strange back home. I think I HEARD something in the background. Like another "cat"! What do you think?

Sassy and Opus said...

We' re here Momo! Sorry we were so late today. Opus was being dumped by his humans so I had him head over to my place. I waited until he arrived before we headed over to your place. This just reminds me, Sassy, that winter is getting closer at our neck of the woods. Buuuuuurrrrrrr. I hope you all stayed far away from that big white bear.
I'm glad Opus has black on his fur otherwise I wouldn't be able to find him.
Looks like a fantastic trip.
