Sampy, самый известный кот в Финляндии, дает интервью

Могу сказать, что самый известный кот в Финляндии  - это Сямпю (Sampy), по крайней мере, я так считаю. Он  - хорошо известная  персона в Facebook.

Я стал поклонником Sampy относительно поздно, уже тогда, когда у него появилось больше десяти тысяч подписчиков. Я осознал, что готов выразить свое восхищение, поставив лайк на Facebook. Так что теперь я могу ходить в лесные туры вместе с Sampy, следуя за его проворными прыжками и пушистым хвостом.

Я решил обратиться к Sampy и попросить у него интервью. Я хотел узнать немного больше о коте, который очаровал меня и более 15 000 других поклонников. Для Финляндии это большое количество поклонников, потому что Финляндия -  маленькая страна в северной части Европы, всего 5,4 миллиона жителей.

Я отправил вопросы Sampy, и он написал ответы своими маленькими лапками. Я ничего не изменил в ответах, только перевел, потому что он пока не говорит по-русски. Вот что он ответил.

Какой ты породы, и где  живешь?

"Я обычная кошка, и я живу на севере горо…

Tartu Toy Museum is a charming place to visit for people of all ages - toys tell also about the Estonian history

Tartu is a very charming small town in Estonia with the Old Town where the buildings represent classicism and are renovated very well. Besides the Old Town you can wander in the old wood house  parts of the city. In Tartu there are a lot of museums, hills and the river Ema crosses the city..
What I’d like to recommend seeing in Tartu besides the architecture is the Toy Museum in Tartu’s Old Town. It’s not only toys but also history what you can sense there, because the toys reflect the many changes Estonia has experienced throughout centuries.
The permanent exhibition of the Tartu Toy Museum is on display in three old houses. The exhibition features living pictures of dolls and toys with which children have played throughout the ages: the porcelain dolls, tin soldiers, stone blocks and old teddy bears of city kids, the wood-carved animals and tools of country kids, rag dolls and trick toys, nostalgic paper dolls and board games.
A special display to see is the 1950s and 1960s’ compositio…

Sämpy is the most famous cat in Finland - here he gives an interview

I tell you, the most famous cat in Finland is Sämpy, or at least I believe so. He is a well known public figure in Facebook. I became a fan of Sämpy relatively late, only when already a lot more than ten thousand admirers had raised thumbs to Sämpy on his Facebook page. Finally, I realized myself to show my admiration with my thumb to  Sämpy on Facebook. So  I am able to follow the Sämpy’s  agile leap, furry tail and forest tours.
I decided to approach Sämpy and asked him an interview. I wanted to understand a little bit more about the cat, which has charmed me, and more than 15 000 other successors. In Finland that is a big number of admirers, because Finland is small country in the Northern part of Europa, 5,4 million inhabitants we have. I send questions to Sämpy and he has written the answers with his small paws. I haven’t changed anything of his replies, only translated. He doesn't speak English, yet. This is how he replies.

What breed of cat you are and where do you live? "I…
