Stinky Eric

We went for another walk and stopped to sit in the sun for a while.



Flynn found a bit of branch and decided to put his stink on it.

I decided to have a roll too. Mum said she was glad to see us enjoying ourselves. Then she saw IT!

On the side of my face was all smelly black tarry stuff.

Mum thought it was a leaf stuck to me at first, then she realised I was rolling in pheasant poop. She yelled at me to stop but I was enjoying it too much. Do you know what she did then?

She picked me up and plonked me on the edge of the horse drinking trough and tried to drown me! Look how wet she made the side of my head and down my leg. It was a cold day. I could have frozen to death! I've a good mind to report her to the RSPCA.

A bit more than a week ago Zoolatry made us our lovely new header. Although we emailed our thanks at the time, we hang our heads when we admit we forgot to acknowledge it when we put it on our blog. Thanks Ann, Maggy and Zoey, it's great.

Oh Eric
That looks like so much fun!
Too bad we could not get your video to work...
But it's too bad your Mum dunked you -- wow I think your right about a call to the RSPCA

Rumblemum would be happy to put you into the Eric Protection program, keep you from getting dunked again...

Kea said...

Eeewwww, Eric! Pheasant poop! Yuck. Sorry, but I'm with your mom on this one. But boy, you guys sure had a great time! I'd give you smooches, but uh, think I'd better pass right now. Annie, Nicki and Derry send purrs and kitty kisses though; they are so jealous of all your adventures!

Tristan and Crikey said...

We've never rolled around in poop, but we're certainly not ruling it out:) And we think that your new header is one of the bestest ones we've seen!

Sweet Praline said...

The two of you have so much fun together.

Angel and Kirby said...

You need to watch where you roll if you don't want to be dunked!

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

HA! When we saw the headline "Stinky Eric" we thought he got into the rabbit poop again. We never would have guessed pheasant!
We noticed your new header the other day and forgot to tell you how much we like it. Zoolatry does such good work!

William said...

Oh my goodness! It's a wonder you survived!!

The Monkeys said...

OH no! We're glad you're okay and not stinky anymore!

The Creek Cats said...

You boys are hilarious! We love seeing you put your stink on stuff!

The Island Cats said...

Fin said...

Moms! What's a little poop!?

Laila and Minchie said...

Could you ship us some of that dirt, minus the poop, so we can roll around in it too?

Love the new header!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

PS: We LOVE the noo header.

Cats in Trees said...

What a nightmare that must have been. And all because those pheasants don't know how to behave and not poop on your rolling ground. How terrible.

Huffle Mawson said...

She tried to drown you in the horse trough? Do you want me to call the RSPCA?

Parker said...

Yikes? All that water for a little pheasant poop?

The Kitty Krew said...

Ohhhh, poor Eric, getting nearly drowned like that! We're so sorry. But we're very glad she didn't quite drown you and you were able to tell us the story. You and Flynn appeared to be having much fun on your walk and rolling around!

Purrs and hugs,
The Kitty Krew

SuziQCat said...

Poor Eric...she could have waited until you got inside and drawn you a nice warm bath with good smelling soaps!

Animals with Opinions said...

Margaret Cloud said...

You two are so pretty and I did not know cat's would roll in stinky stuff, phew. Glad you went outside again.

Cat of Nine Tales said...

The Whiskeratti said...

Bath! Eww!! NOOOO!!

MoMo said...

Dunking in a cold bath on a cold day? Yikeessssssss! That's what you get for rolling in pheasant poop.

Grr, Midnight & Cocoa said...

AHHHHH! That's just wrong! And she seemed like such a nice purrrrson too. :( We sure hope you're okay now. Your furs certainly do look clean though.

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

You guys have the BEST adventures in your yard--except for mom almost drowing you.... :)

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...

Sheesh, she just about drownded yoo fur a little bit of pheasant poop...really, how rude.

CCL Wendy said...

O noes, Eric!!! Not the pheasant poop! Why would you want pheasant poop on your head anyway? Silly boy.

I could see it if you went for the pheasant itself -- I mean that would be quite tasty.

CatLadyDiary.com said...

My god, a near drowning, all over a little bit of Pheasant poo!

The Furry Bambinos said...

Eric, you certainly do have talent! Reminds us of the time Panda Bear climbed into the fireplaceafter a mouse (don't worry, the fire was not lit). PB had to get a bath in the kitchen sink since he was covered in soot!

We also threaten to call the ASPCA on our parents, too.
