Our 4th. Blogversary

Today is our 4th Blogoversary, and before we do anything else we would like to thank Ann at Zoolatry for the lovely picture she made for us. Also we want to thank all our visitors for being our friends. Things have changed a lot since we started. There were nowhere near as many blogging kitties then and we were able to visit most blogs on most days. Now we can't even keep up with our Reader, but we try and visit as many of you as possible.
We are very glad to know all of you and feel like we are part of one big family.
The following is our first ever post. Tummy Tuesday follows at the end.

Our very first post:

Well we finally got here.First we would like to say a big hello to Fat Eric, who suggested we get our own blog, so "Hello Fat Eric:))))" Our mum said we could have one of our own when they came back from their holiday, but that was ages ago.We've kept on and on at her so we could tell other kitties about us, but then she said it was too hot to be indoors.Last night we wouldn't let her sleep and kept walking all over her, so now she has given in and here we are.
I'm the main man and my name is Eric but I will let Flynn have his say after.I'm a big handsome semi long haired ginger and white kitty known as Big Eric or Big E to my friends. I weigh in at 20 lbs, and have been on a diet for about 6 months. I did lose a pound a while back, but now I am back up to my favourite weight. I've just got big bones. Don't know why the beans laugh at me when I say that though.My hobbies are eating and sleeping and going out to watch Flynn catch mice. When he catches them, he usually lets me eat them.
It has been so hot lately, I have been sleeping under the fan or under the hedge in the garden. Mum bean said she would shave my fur off for me, but I gave her such a look she hasn't mentioned it since. I think she was joking but you never know do you?
Some time ago Dad bean made a big cage and fixed it to the outside of the bedroom window, so that means we can go in and out the window at night and be safe. It really is good to be able to sleep out under the stars in this hot weather and know that nothing nasty can get at us.I forgot to say, don't worry we only have downstairs rooms, so we can't fall out a long way, and dad bean made a ramp for us to walk up and down.
Flynn keeps prowling backwards and forwards, so I had better let him have a go.He'll only get in a huff else and start hissing at me.
Hello everyone, I thought he would never move. My name is Flynn and BigE is my brother. I am the slimline one and only weigh 13 lbs. I'm the one that does all the work around here. I love catching mice, but can't be bothered to eat them, so usually give them to Eric. After all he's got a waistline to keep up.Mum bean says I'm hyperactive and that I can't walk any where. I still go out hunting in this hot weather, but it makes me pant when I get back. I was in trouble yesterday cos I caught a bird. Mum took it away and put it in a safe place. Doesn't she realise how difficult it is to catch them in this weather? Anyway she said it was gone this morning, so I tried to find it again, but couldn't.
I'll tell you a bit about us before Eric butts in again.
We were born on a farm about a mile away and our beans had to take us home too early. The farmer said that there was a big bad tomcat around, and he kills baby kitties. So our beans were afraid he would get us, so we went to live with them when we were only 5 1/2 weeks old.
They bought us all the proper baby kitty food and made sure we were safe.They think that is why we are big, cos all the other kitties on the farm are only about 8lbs, and didn't get nice food like us. We have looked at some of the other kitty blogs,and see that food is called "stinky goodness" but I think some is more stinky than others.
Our beans have got some fields here and mum bean looks after horses for people. The trouble is the horses think it is their fields, but I know it is ours, and sometimes they chase us.
The bean has said she needs to use the computer so it looks like we have to go. Hope she lets us get back here soon.
Love to all you kitties out there from Flynn xx
I thought he was never going to shift and now it's too late for me to say anything else, except speak to all you dudes again soon.
Bye for now (Big) Eric x

Tummy Tuesday.

Flynn: Eric has been hogging the blog lately so I have got in quick before he has the chance to. I know you must have missed my tummy, tail and toesies.

Eric: Harharhar! That's what he thinks. Now this is what you call a tummy. When the Beans came home from their weekend away the other day they left the holdall on the floor. It made a nice comfy bed.
Don't worry about my eye looking worse, this was before I went to the evil V E T and I had been digging it again. It looks much better now.

Nico, Simon and JayJay said...

Oh Happy Happy Blogoversary!!! YAY! We loved the flashback - Eric, we knew you were a *ahem* big boned kitty, but fur some reason we thought that Flynn was just as big as you - boy were we wrong!! Our Mom says that two of "the ones who came before" (Meaning our brother we never met, Tigger & of course, Austin before he got sick) were big like you, Eric!! She loves big kitties - she thinks they're more fun to play with!

...Hmm, there's something not quite right with that last sentence - Woman, what about us smaller kitties??!

ANYWAY, we are very happy to have met you & are glad we can count you among our friends!!

Have a great day!!

~Nico, Simon & JayJay :)

Happy Anniversary, my friends!

I've been blogging since 2002, and been online since 1998, but leave it to Daddy to not be as swift on the uptake as your humand, hee,, hee, and leave it to Jan. 2010 to give me my own place.

I loved reading your first post, it was a great way to start things off. ;-D

Hi guys, this is Rusty's Mom. He's not feeling too good today, so I thought I'd drop in for him to see what you're up to. Happy Blogaversary! We always enjoy visiting you guys when we blog because you're fun and Rusty likes that you look like him (ginger and white). Have a great day, I'll try to get Rusty to stop in later, if he's feeling better.

ABBY said...

Eric and Flynn
We are happy to say we remember when you started blogging and we've been with you from nearly the beginning. You're right there are so many changes since you've begun blogging...our 5th anniversary is coming up in a few weeks. We enjoyed reading your original post all over again. We think your Flashback posts are really good and really nice way to reminisce. Happy 4th Anniversary!!!

Happy 4th Blogaversary! You two sure have been blogging for a long time compared to almost everyone else. I just love following your daily adventures and seeing the beautiful countryside in and around your home.

I'm so glad you were rescued at such a young age -- you're having the life that all cats should have -- the best of both worlds. Your farm cats, yet you are also beloved pets.

Glad to hear Eric's eye is improving.
