Sunday Selfies.

I haven't taken any selfies this week because it has been too hot to do anything. Mum said I had to do something so we looked through my old photos and agreed on this one.

This is one from when I still had a nice rounded tummy and my fur coat still fit me instead of being a couple of sizes too big.

You can see more selfies at The Cat on my Head with the Kitties Blue.

Eric's Day Flashback - The Charge!

This week the flashback comes from July 2010 and is called:

The Charge!

Flynn: Just a minute, I'm trying to wash my tummy.

Eric: *watching*

Flynn: Have you ever had the feeling you are being watched?

Eric: Chaaaaaarge!

Flynn: Yikes! What happened? I feel like I've been hit by a tornado!

Our 10th Blogoversary

Ten years ago today on July 20th 2006 we started our blog. We didn't for one minute think we would still be here today blogging.

When Eric had to leave us we very nearly stopped then, but we have made so many friends over the years and had so much support that we knew we couldn't leave.

You can read our first post here and our next post which is when we posted our first photos is here.
We weren't very good at getting the layout right back then, but mum said she was going to leave it as it originally posted rather than start altering things.

Here are just a few photos from over the years.

Baby boys when we first arrived in our new home.

Watching the world go by.

Mouse watch.

On patrol and checking holes in tree trunks.

Heading for home!

Thank you for our lovely blogoversary card, Sammy.

This post nearly didn't get done and it's not the one that was planned. We lost our internet at 8am on Friday and it didn't come back until 4pm on Saturday. It lasted 10 minutes and went again. When it came back mum was like a crazy woman trying to get something done before it went again.
We were due to change providers on Friday but it is now being done on Tuesday (yesterday) because they told mum we need a double appointment because we are a long way from the connection point.
She did tell them that at the time but they said it wouldn't make any difference. It proves that mums do know best!

We haven't been able to visit anybody but will whenever we have a connection. Don't worry if you don't hear from us before today, but we hope we will be around before this post gets published. Luckily my mum schedules our flashback and selfie posts.

Sunday Selfies.

Me and mum were having a little rest before I took my selfies but we both fell asleep. Luckily dad came to the rescue and I got my selfies after all. Mum says she has got her grumpy face on when she sleeps.

She told dad to take another photo to prove she doesn't always look grumpy.

We are joining the Kitties Blue at The Cat on My Head where you will find lots more selfies.

Eric's Day Flashback - Sleeping Positions.

This week the flashback comes from July 2010 and is called:

Sleeping Positions.

We like to nap on the bed together.

We usually are touching each other when we sleep, but not always.

We like to sleep together on the recliner too.

Eric often likes to show his tummy when he sleeps whether it is indoors..........

or outdoors.

But sometimes he is so tired he just collapses in a heap.

And once he is asleep, he takes a lot of waking.

Flynn prefers to sleep on his back with his paws curled.

Or on the desk with his paws all in a pile.

But it doesn't take long before he is sleeping on his back again.

He also likes to stretch out on the desk. Maybe he needs a bigger one.

Or maybe it is safer to stretch out on the bed.

Sunday Selfies.

I have some trays of long grass to munch on when I feel like it. The grass has got too long and needs a bit of trimming so I have decided to sleep on them instead. I thought I would use the timer and take my selfie at the same time,

You can see more selfies with the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head.

Only 6 more days and we change internet provider and hopefully get a good connection and faster speed.

Eric's Day Flashback - The Visitor

I am sorry I haven't been visiting lately. Our internet is being terrible, far more off than on. We change providers on July 15th so hopefully things will get back to normal or better than normal. Our flashbacks are scheduled about 6 weeks at a time so will still be here. I will visit as and when I can in the meantime.

Warning to the Trout Town Tabbies! Don't read any further!!!

This week the flashback comes from July 2010 and is called:

The Visitor.

Flynn: Hey what are you doing here? This is my sunbathing spot.

You're supposed to be afraid of me, why aren't you flying away?

You do realise I could have you for my supper don't you.

Hmphh, if you are going to ignore me, I will turn my back on you too.

Oh good, mum's fattening him up for us.

Eric: If I watch him from behind this wire mesh he won't be able to see me.

He has come closer, do I dare pounce with mum watching me?

Huh! The cheek of it. He is drinking our rain water now.

Note from mum:
We had heavy rain and very strong wind the night before these photos were taken. The pigeon is a ringed homing pigeon and was probably exhausted from the bad weather. He was looking very sorry for himself and let me catch him. His ring had this year's date on it so this is probably his first year of racing. The boys were very interested but couldn't understand why he wouldn't fly. wThat is most likely what saved him as there is no point in catching something that just sits and looks at you. He is now looking much better and flying as soon as I or Eric and Flynn approach and should very soon fly back to his own loft.
