Friday Flashback

This week I have two short posts for the flashback.
The first is Flynn, "Relaxing".

There I wuz, just relaxing an enjoying the vyoo.

Wait !! what's dat?? It's furry inchresting. Mum sez I'm seeing fings an dat theer's nuffin theer. Well mum, if yoo wuz to put yer glasses on, yoo'd see I'm watching an ant.

The second is Eric, "I'm Bored!"

Efurryday it's raining. I want to go out furr a walk and play and climb trees.
Yesterday morning the sun wuz out and we asked mum to take us furr a walk, and she sed she would as soon as she finished the horses.Guess what. It started raining again befurr she finished. It's not efun ordinary rain, it's so hevvy yoo can't efun see the end of the garden. I'm reely reely BORED!!!!

Guess what. The rain has stopped, and today the sun wuz shining ALL DAY and it wuz lovely and warm. We went out nearly all day. Our dad wuz werking at home and he let us do what we wanted, just checking on us now and again. We layed in the garden most of the time sunbathing, and then mum took us for a long walk. I'm not bored any more.

For Eric I started with Sunshine at 50% then added Landscape at 40%.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week's flashback comes from January 2007 and is called:
Carrot Wars.
I have translated from the original catspeak this week.

Mummmm!!! Eric's got my carrot. He knows it's my favourite

Hehehehe, I never get chance to play with this nippy carrot.

Yeah well now I've got it back again.

This is my most favourite toy in the whole wide world.
It took me a long time to drool all over it and get the smell just right.

Awww go on Flynn, let me play with it.

NO!!!! Mine!!! Go and find your scruffy rat to play with. Scruffy's there beside the balls that's behind me, and you never let me play with him.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

I have now updated my Christmas Cards 2019 Page with all my E cards and snail mail cards. Thanks to all who sent.
The boys still get more cards than we do, 39 for them and 32 for us!

This post was originally published on January 2007, and once again I have left it in the original catspeak.

Growing Up.

This is me, Eric when I fink I wuz abowt 8 weeks old. I am wiv Kitty Yum Bum hoo wuz the old lady cat hoo wuz lonely cuz she wuz the only one left furrom all her brofurrs an sisfurrs an cuzzins. Me an Flynn came to our furrefurr home when we wuz  5 1/2 weeks old to look after her. She didn't like us at furrst, but I allus slept beside her efun though she told me she didn't want me theer. In the end she reely luvved us, an yoosed to go efurry where wiv us.

I wuz 8 munfs old heer, see I wuz a big boy alreddy. She only weighed 6lbs, an wuz a dainty lil girl.

Heer we all are togevver when we wuz about 6 munfs old. Kitty YB wuz 13 when we arrived an only lived furr anuvver 2 yeers. We wuz efurr so sad when she went to the Bridge, an mum still talks abowt her to us. Mum sez she wuz her speshull girl, cuz when dad's Beans died, owr Beans adopted theer 9 kitties and the two ladycats must haf been broken becuz they had to get fixed. When she took them in, the V E T sed one wuz going to haf kittens, so she took her home again an a couple of weeks later she had 7 babies. Mum fownd good homes furr 6 of them, but no-one wanted the last one cuz she wuz so small, so she kept her. She alreddy had one kitty of her own, so that meant the Beans had 11 kitties then. Mum sez she wuz speshull cuz the ladycat wuz only just pregnant, an if the V E T hadn't notissed, then she wud nefurr haf been born. She yoosed to ride round on mum's shoulder and didn't like ennyone at all except mum. She wudn't efun let dad pet her until we came along.

Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

I have two short flashback posts this week that follow on from each other.They are both from November 2006.
First is "Something in the Tree."

Eric:  I just know I heard sumfing move, but I don't know what it was. I'll just put my head in an haf a good look round.

Yer right Eric, I heard sumfing too.I'll look furrom this side.

.Flynn:  No good, I need to haf a better look.
We bofe looked an looked but cudn't find ennyfing, but we will be back to look again. We don't give up.
Part 2: Success

We been keep going back an checking on that tree, an yesterday we herd more noises, so we went an in-vesty-gatid again.Success!!!
There was a mousie in theer. Mum finks thay may haf made a nest in the tree to live in. I haf to be troofull. It looks like I got the mousie, but reely it wuz Flynn, an he gave it to me to eat. It wuz lucky we got it then cuz it wuz getting dark an mum had told us we had to go in. The tree is a big oak tree that grows owtside our window, an it is cuvvered in ivy, an the birdies like it, so we can sit in the window an watch the live fev-vers efun when we can't go outdoors.
