Stampede!

The other day when Eric was rolling in the wood chip, I decided to lie there and relax.

Oh no! Here he comes!

It's like a stampede.

Phew! I'm glad your brakes worked Eric.

Several of you yesterday said you didn't realise we had KFC in the UK. We knew they had been here a long time, but didn't how long so we got mum to look it up. The first one opened in the North of England in 1965 and now there are over 800. That surprised mum and she thought there would be more as there are 6 she can think of in the Plymouth area alone.

You boys! Ha ha ha ha!

I missed yesterday. That's exactly what happens when our mom brings home KFC! (She sometimes resorts to eating it in the car, as if we wouldn't know!) We love fish and chips, too.

CCL Wendy said...

It does indeed look like a stampede ring, even if there are only two kitties inside it!

They certainly have a good venue for a wrassling match!

Stampede and KFC, that is purrfection!

Yep, mum remembers eating in a KFC in London near Picadilly last time she was there. Looking for something quick at the time, had a Phantom she had to go see.

Did you come over for a roll in the wood chips too, Eric?

meowmeowmans said...

Wow, you have KFC AND stampedes there?! Now we *definitely* want to visit you boys. :)

You two guys are funny!

Oh and the Woman said if she lived in the UK, she'd be at Nandos all the time rather than KFC. She really liked that chicken!

Ă„iti wouldn't comment yesterday.She went off in a total sulk and hurrumphed around. So did Stran, Aila, Harris and Lewis. They were drooling over that plate. We Finncats have never heard of KFC: we think the nearest one must be in Sweden, maybe Stockholm which is hundreds of km away. But the Brits remember and say it was totally unhealthy but absolutely delicious........

And we love the stampede sequence! It must be pretty scary having Eric charge at you!

Prancer Pie said...

HaHaMeow! That's not much of a stampede! There's four of us! That's a real herd. MOL! We drooled ofur the KFC pic, too. Here, we call it "Kitchen Fresh Chicken" fur fun!

Impressive breaking, Eric!

Princess Jasmine said...

Good job you braked in time Eric hee he. Mummy didn't realise KFC had been here that long. Mummy likes a Twister. Simba likes the chips :)xx

Au and Target said...

We'd love to come and roll in those chips. Pawsome!

Au likes only the top bit of KFC thighs IF you pull off the breading AND feather the meat. The other two think Fast Food is Yuck Food.

Phew! That was a close call!

It's hard to imagine the world without KFC. I ♥ it, which is weird because I tear off all of the fried part and throw it away and just eat the chicken. Which is totally yummy. But I live in the south, where fried chicken is "the thing" and people are all about how they fry it. But I just can't stomach the thought of eating skin, no matter how it's cooked. Ack.

The End.

Sorry. That was a whole long story, wasn't it? hahahaha! Coffee is just starting to kick in I guess. :)

Us4 Cats said...

awwww you guys! dis made mama smile. she likes seeing kitties playing and happy :))

Marg said...

I am not surprised that there is a KFC over there across the pond. Now you have our Mom wanting some KFC. Eric sure are glad you stopped before stomping on Flynn. Hope you all have a super day.

The Island Cats said...

Haha! We think it woulda been funnier if Eric's breaks didn't work!! CRASH!!

We didn't know the Colonel had been in the UK for so long too!

Madi and Mom said...

Yes indeed thank goodness Eric had a recent brake inspection.. How nice of the horses to let you play in their field.
We had no idea KFC has been in UK
Hugs madi

Cat said...

Nice you have a big space to run around in...with wood chips too!!!

Fuzzy Tales said...

We'd love a good roll and tussle in those wood chips!

Our mom hasn't had KFC in at least 20 years, though there's one on the way home from work. Her restraint is admirable, but she makes up for it by the sheer quantity of chocolate she eats. :-D

Hannah and Lucy said...

Our Mum's never ever had KFC does that make her a one off? We love how you just waited to see if Eric had his brakes on Flynn - you like to live dangerously!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The Meezers or Billy said...

mmmmmmmmmmmm KFC rocks

Cory said...

That looks like a GREAT place to have a tussle...and then when you are done playing you can go inside and fill your bellies with KFC! What more could you ask for???

Maybe nip growing wild among the wood chips....

Kjelle Bus said...

Glad that Eric´s brakes worked so you didn´t get stampede on Flynn !

The Whiskeratti said...

How pawsome that y'all have KFC too. And Eric, we are VERY glad your brakes work well. Could have been a for real stampede.

Shaggy and Scout said...

Does it feel like an earthquake when Eric thunders across the paddock like that?

Interesting about KFC. Many companies are worldwide now but in 1965 that was a bit unusual.

Pellie / Penny said...

That was a cool bit of trivia on the state of KFC in England. Thanks for sharing.


Have fun in the chips.

Purrs,

Laila and Minchie said...

Eric must have gotten the idea for a stampede from watching the horsies.

Katie Isabella said...

Eric! I've been practicing up on my braking skills too! I can stop on a dime and leap!

Sagira said...

Sneak attack!

How cool that you guys have KFC as well. But...wait until you get a Raising Cane's...you will not want KFC anymore.
