This flashback comes from January 2007 and shows that even though Eric was a big mancat he could still be:
Eric the Athlete.
Mum and Flynn both say all I do is lay around or eat. Well here's the proof that sometimes I am very lively. This is my ratty and I am getting ready to pounce on him.
Here I go, I'll give him what for.
This is me with a mousie that Flynn caught for me.
I was having a good game with it, and I can be really speedy somtimes.
See I was that fast that mum couldn't keep up with me and it looks like she chopped my head off. Don't worry Rosie, my head is still there really!
I was that tired out after that I had to lie on the floor with my fluffcat. See we are the same colour. I put the bitey on fluffcat usually, but I was just too tired in this picture.
