Eric's Day Flashback - 7 Weird Things.

When I was looking for a post for Eric's Day Flashback I found this one when me and Eric were tagged for a meme and I thought it would be fun to post it again. It is called:

The 7 Weird Things Meme.
 We have been tagged by Jan's Funny Farm and Turkey Cats to do the Seven Weird Things about us meme. We did it a few months ago, so we have tried to put in seven different things this time.
Here are the rules:
Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
Share seven random and/or weird facts about yourself.
Tag seven random people at the end of your post, and include links to their blogs.
Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a notification on their blog.
Here are our 7 weird things:

1. Flynn: I'm a very good hunter and I catch lots of mousies, moles and weasels. I have brought back real live snakes which gives mum a big fright. I have a special place that I have found where I know they live. Mum tries to keep me away from them, but I like catching them cuz they coil up like springs and they like playing with me.

2.Eric: I'm very ticklish. The Beans only have to pet me and I start bathing myself. If they give me scritches I start biting myself, and if I get really excited, well then I bite them.

3.Flynn: I Yowl. LOUD. Mum says there must have been some Meezer somewhere in my distant past.Sometimes in the middle of the night, usually around 3am when it's nice and quiet,I go out in our safe cage and yowl at the moon. If the window's not open, I get on the cat tree and scrape the window and yowl from there. I think mum likes it cuz she throws things like slippers for me to play with.

4. Eric:I love noses. I like to get up and give the Beans kisses on their noses, and then I bite their nose. It's best to do it when the Beans have already gone to bed and are making roaring noises.I don't usually bother to kiss them first, I go right in with the bitey. That wakes them up.

5. Flynn: Mum says I purr like a train and when I'm really happy I do tail poofs like Chase from Kaze , Latte and Chase. That's when just the first few inches of your tail by the base poof up. Eric can't do it.

6. Eric: I've said before that I love water, well we both do. If it is pouring with rain I like to sit in the garden and get my furrs all wet. Then I come in and jump up on the computer desk to see mum, and I shake my furrs all over her and the monitor. It makes all pretty sparkles on the monitor.

7. Flynn: I like to know what the Beans have been eating. I get on mum's lap and sniff her mouth. If it smells good I try to push my nose in her mouth for a better sniff. This always makes her laugh but she won't let me get my nose in for a proper look around.

2014 Update. We did nominate 7 more blogs for this meme but I noticed that there are sadly only 2 who still blog but only occassionally, The Furry Kids and Adan. The others have either stopped blogging or gone to the Bridge.

Thanks Dad.

Dad made part of the vegetable garden into more lawn. He planted the grass seed on the morning he and mum went on holiday in May so I wouldn't dig up all the nice fresh earth and seeds. The grass grows like crazy and I love to lie in the nice long cool grass.
It needs cutting more often than the older lawn but he leaves me a strip of the long grass because he knows I like it so much.

Thanks dad. You're the best!

I Spy.

Flynn: Ah, a mouse hole.

I'll take a closer look.

Closer still.

Mousie:  Eeeeeeek!!!

Eric's Day Flashback - Snoring.

This flashback comes from January 2008 and was originally an
Easy Like Sunday.

It's nice to lie on the sofa with your dad, but the roaring can keep you awake.

Here's a bit of advice: When your Bean snores too loud you put your paw on their chin and push. This makes their mouth close and stops the roaring that comes out of it. When you have stopped them snoring, then you can get some sleep. But it's all lies when mum says I snore like a little piggy. It must be dad again.

How long have you been standing there with the flashy box?

 This is post number  2,098
We have had 66,393 comments
Our total page views are  222,086*

*The counter at the bottom of our homepage is considerably higher so we assume that our own visits are being counted as well but can see no way of not counting them.

Now if you will excuse me I need to get back to my nap.

Eric's Day Flashback.

This week the flashback is from December 2007 and is Eric and dad enjoying their easy together.

I still like reading the newspapers with my dad on a Sunday morning.

In fact this looks particularly interesting.
