Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 I have a lot more one photo posts so will show some more of them today. They are from February and March 2008.

Flynn on Flat out Friday.
Just taking some well earned rest and relaxation.

Easy on Sunday with potted Eric.
If the sun is shining but it's freezing cold out, don't worry, just find yourself a nice big plant pot in the greenhouse. The greenhouse makes a very good giant litterbox too.


Flynn waiting for a mouse.
It looks like a lovely sunny day furr a stroll around the fields duzn't it. Well, if you thought that you'd be wrong cuz the wind wuz blowing a gale and it wuz freeeeezing. I tried to keep as close to the hedge as I could so the wind didn't blow my furrs inside out.


Tree climbing Eric on Mancat Monday.
This is an older scanned pikchur of me. When I wuz younger I used to like to climb up the inside of the hedge and suddenly pop out to see what wuz happening. I still do it now sumtimes to see what birdies haf built their nests in there.

Flynn on Mancat Monday.
One of the good things about being able to go outdoors furr walks is that you can pee like a real mancat. Only thing is you haf to remember you're not still outdoors when you go in your litterbox again. Mum's don't like it much if you furrget yourself. I only did it once and I wuz so embarrassed I didn't do it again.
Notice the back leg movement, that is furry impawtunt to get that right. You don't want to get wet paws.

Eric on Mancat Monday.
I like to lie on the path outside of the garage cuz I can snoopervise efurryone who goes in and out furrom here. That is what a responsible mancat duz.

The random photo(s) this week was chosen by Marv who asked for mid December 2013. It was Flynn's first Christmas without Eric but he still had to check the tree, maybe looking at the Eric and Flynn tree ornaments.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 The flashback this week comes from December 2008 and is called:

On The Scent.

We don't go out as much through the winter, toasting your toesies by the fire is much better. We still have to make the effort now and again though to make sure nothing has changed and to check the different smells.

Eric: After a quick walk around the field, we went into the barn and I could smell something on the plastic. I think it was only mice, but I put my scent on it just in case it was an introoder.

Then we walked in the grass along the outside of the barn. We thought we could smell something here. Flynn said he was on the trail.

Yes, there is definitely an introoder smell here. We keep telling mum something is digging it's way into the garden, but all she says is " What's up with you two, there is nothing there. Why are you all poofed up?" 
Just wait until we catch it. That will show her there really is something out here.
The frosty grass has given us cold toesies, so we are going back to the fire to warm them up.

The random photo was chosen by Ellen from 15 and Meowing who asked for 27.11.10.
I didn't have a photo of them together on that date so chose consecutive photos. It was a cold frosty evening and starting to get dark, but that didn't put them off their walk. I think they were probably a lot more eager than me to go out!

It was an already cold evening so I made it colder with Frost at 50% then Scribble at 25%.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 This week the flashback comes from October 2008 and was a Mancat Monday.

Back in the Hay Barn.

The sun came out yesterday afternoon, so we got to roll in the dirt.

After we had done that we went to check the hay and straw again.

Eric: Flynn where have you gone? I can't see you.

Flynn: I'm in here Eric. I'm just coming back out.

Eric: I'd better have a look to see what you were doing in there. I don't want to miss anything.

Eric: Hmphh, that was a waste of time. There wasn't anything in there at all.

The Random Photo this week comes from 23.11.09, and was chosen by the Trout Towne Tabbies and is dedicated to Tuna.

I started with Landscape at 60% then Frida at 25%. I am not happy with the art effect so using the original for the puzzle. I should have started over again!

Tuna of Moon.


 Toona, Flynn's bestie. Will be sadly missed and forever loved, but now they will be hunting the mousies in the fields together.

Trout Towne will not be the same without you. Rest in peace, dear friend.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

First I will just give a quick health update. Some of you already know I had a 6 monthly CT scan in September. The results were no change from the previous one. That is good news because it means the cancer hasn't spread further.
In October I had another brain scan to see if there was any change in "The Thing". There was no change there either and the neurological team are now 100% sure it is not a cancer spread. They think it is most likely a congenital defect, and as I had never had a brain scan before the strokes no-one would have known it was there.
Hopefully that means no more dreaded MRI scans, just the regular CT scans.

In The Hay Barn.

Dad packed a load of straw in the barn for the horses to sleep on in the winter.

We thought we had better go down and check that he had done it properly.

Eric: I'll just go up on top to make sure it is stacked safely.

Hey Flynn, look at me. I'm touching the roof.

Flynn: While you are up there I'll just make sure the lower layers are done right.

Yep, everything looks okay down here.

Now that's done I'll jump down and have a bath.

Straw tickles and itches so you haf to make sure you bath all the little bits out of your furrs.

All the loose straw has been put in this bag. It makes a good seat where you can listen furr mice.

Eric: All that snoopervising has tired me out. I need a rest now.

It's a bit hot in here, I think I will go and sit in the doorway where there is a nice breeze.

That's better.

Flynn: I don't want any breeze, I'm going to stay in here in the heat.
Oh and yes, that is sun you can see outside the door. After nearly non stop rain since the beginning of June, we have just had one and a half weeks of dry and mostly sunny weather. Hooray!!!!

I used Ceremony at 50%, then Delaunay at 40%.

The random photo was chosen by Cecilia (My Mind's Eye) who asked for 22.11.11

Intruder check, probably badgers.

When I was choosing the photo I noticed another taken on the same date and had to publish that one too. Flynn looked so cute with his back paw between his front feet and resting his face on it.
