The Friday Flashback - Walking.

This is another flashback from January 2010. The main thing we noticed from this one is how much drier the ground was back then. Now when we go out, we have had so much rain throughout the summer and winter that the fields are waterlogged and look more like ploughed fields than horse pasture.

We got out for another walk when the rain stopped. It is still very cold so we only stay out for long enough to check everything out.

Eric: I had a good scratch around in the leaves. You never know if a little mousie will be waiting there for you.

Flynn: While Eric was doing that, I checked out all the holes the bunnies have been digging in the hedges. They are silly because they only dig a little way and then they go off and leave it.

Then we walked a bit further.

Flynn: I got up on the hedge to look into our neighbour's field to see if he had any little lambs yet. It doesn't look like it.

Eric: I carried on walking along the bottom of the hedge still checking for mousies. Neither of us saw anything. It must be too cold for the mousies.

Eric: Then I sat down and gave mum my mancat pose just to prove that I can pose just as well as Flynn if I want to.

Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and warm purrs. I am back from the Vet, resting, still not eating but doing better. Momma is praying I will eat tomorrow so I don't have to go back to Vet Jail.

You two have such interesting walks!

Flynn, don't underestimate those rabbits. They know what they're doing. Just leave alone any baby bunnies you find, OK?

Eric, that is one awesome mancat pose!

The Island Cats said...

We hope you find some mousies out there.

Mumsy and Furkids said...

You sweet mancats sure do get to go on some amazing walks. We enjoyed these pictures. If Chancy was on that walk with you he would be digging those bunny holes deeper. Hugs and nose kisses

Prancer Pie said...

Very handsum pose indeed! Those buns are crazy critters. We didn't know they dug holes like that. Great snoopervision, boys.

You two are so diligent and take your duties seriously. We love how you follow each other around and work as a team.

You two really do snoopervise so well - we wonder if you'd like to come here and take over a bit of catio mousewatch ? We are sure they are there....somewhere

We love the way you guys walk around together!

Baby (Lisa Lisa and the Cat Jam) said...

You two are very mancatly and handsome. I like when you find mousies and chew them up to bits. Meeces to pieces!

Hannah and Lucy said...

You have such lovely grass and mousie holes to investgate when you go for your walks - we bet the mousies try and hide when they see you on your way.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

You guys are ever so brave - I hate going out when it's cold. If I do go out I stay right by the door so I can get back in as soon as I get cold - which usually is in about 1 minute.

Purrs,
Genghis

We're thinking some furry ear muffs would be appropriate for these cold wintery day walks...

We enjoyed flashing back with you.
If your weather stays wet your peeps might need to order 8 little rain boots then you could be pretend to be Puss n' Boots.
