Arrival Story:
When I was a little child I was not allowed to have any pets, due to my brother's allergies. I have always loved all kinds of animals, but cats are my all-time favorites. For ever. So immediately when I moved out to my own place, I decided to get a cat. And spoil him out of limits!

Arkimedes is a cute little tuxedo cat full of shenanigans. Whenever the place gets silent, I always wonder what he's up to. Mostly it involves biting me in the toes. He also loves following me around and even taking walks in the forest with me that may last for hours. Sometimes he goes as far as to taking showers with me, or taking car or bike rides, which I otherwise never would have expected from a cat. But I have also seen him go swimming in the sea on hot summer days, which proves he's just nuts. I believe he might hear voices in his head, since he often seems to be listening attentively to things no one else can hear.

My name is Arkimedes Katt. (Katt means Cat in swedish)
I was named after the ancient Greek philosopher and mathematician Arkimedes.
I am just a regular tuxedo kittie from Finland, the land of Santa.
I like swimming, eating, riding cars and bikes, being wise and looking great.
Ok, I may not be a regular cat. ;)

I have tons of videos on YouTube.
I regularly post wisdom and fun stuff on my Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and other places.

I now have my very own official website:
where you can read more about me, look at funny videos and even download the sound of me purring...



Some cat poetry :)

I walk out of the entrance door
And my nose is full of things I adore
Smells of life and smells of spring
The nose is such a lovely thing

My paws are fast and I am eager
The smells of winter were so meager
The sun is warm on my black fur
So I sit for a while and start to purr

What is the sun?
Why is it up there?
Where does it go when it is gone?
Does it have a lair?

I rise up and I ponder
what now, is the wind, I wonder?
Is there a giant breathing on us
why does the wind make such a fuss?

All the birds they fly and sing
It sure is the strangest thing
Why don't they walk like dogs and cats
I often think of birds and bats

And what is the night?
Who turns off the light?
Where do stars hide in the day?
If they talk, what do they say?

Why do flowers grow?
Does anybody know?
And what is the rain
and who should we blame?

Ah these questions are too many
As for answers, are there any?
I should better close my eye;
Sleep away from what and why.

(or actually his human caretaker Katrina Tapio)


Preparing for the vet

What happened today...

Last night I was out on important business, so it was not until I returned home this morning I saw that my Human had taken out the transport cage from the wardrobe and put it in front of my napping basket. This made me curious.

Is she going to take me to some fun place? I wondered. The cage smelled wonderfully of catnip and inside of it was my best rattling mousy toy. Apparently she had made efforts for my comfort while travelling. Then, all of a sudden, I heard strange noises and I was immediately distracted.

On the big computer screen (for some reason these two people need three computers, a big, a smaller, and a tiny one, I think the tiny one is mine) there was an image of a litter of seven kittens. Apparently my Human has some kind of daily surveillance of these kittens and their mother, might they be enemies of sorts?

Then I turned back my attention to the transport cage, and a dreadful realization came to me. Might this trapping device be proof of a soon-to-come veterinarian visit? When I had gathered my thoughts I decided to spend great amounts of time on figuring out how to escape this entrapment. With occasional naps, meals and play breaks.

I reckon I was successful in my pursuit, the Human even spent time pointing the video camera at me in an attempt to understand my magnificent plan.
