The Friday Flashback.

The Friday Flashback this week comes from November 2010 and was originally a:
                                      Mancat Monday.

We haven't been for a walk for the last three days because it has been bitterly cold. The furthest we have been is out in the garden, but today the wind dropped so mum asked if we wanted to go out in the fields.

Flynn: Hmm, I don't know if this was a good idea. I've got frozen toesies in this icy grass,

Eric: You're right, I don't think I want to put my feet in it.

Nope, a walk was definitely not the best idea.

Flynn: I had to floof my fur up and even my tail to keep warm.

I managed to stop for a few minutes to check the smells on the grass though.

Eric: That's enough for me. I'm going back in by the fire. Are you coming Flynn?

Yep, warm toesies are always the best option boys!

Fireside naps are the best!=^Y^=

Warm up those poor cold toesies and nap by the fire. Great Plan.

Oh even looking at that looks way too cold!

Kari said...

An extra log on the fire and a nice warm lap to warm your toes on. A perfect way to spend an icy day. Oh, let's not forget some extra noms to help the body stay warm.

You don't have to freeze your little kitty buns off to enjoy a great fire!

Heehee! Oh Eric, you look so cute and grumpy at the cold grass! Flynn doesn't seem to mind so much!

The Island Cats said...

You boys were very brave to venture out into the cold. But laying by a warm fire sounds so much better!

Barb and TheDailyGs said...

A dash out for a quick tinkle and curl up by the fire again, boys! Well done you!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

That looks like a way to make your little toes chilly. We hope you were able to warm them by the fire afterward... and that the weather lets up so you can go for more walks soon!

CATachresis said...

Hannah and Lucy said...

We were reading your comment on another blog about Google + bloggers.
We found the same problem as you but found Colehaus Cats website - www.colehauscats.com on Google and you can get into their blog from there. We haven't managed to find any others up to now but if we do we'll let you know & if you find any new ones we'd be pleased if you'd tell us too.

I bet those toes were so very cold. We had snow here once and we all couldn't walk in it. We didn't like it at all. By the fire is the best idea.

Eric and Flynn, you are very brave to go out when it's cold! We are indoor kitties, and we don't even like sitting by the window when it is cold outside. :)

ABBY said...

You are both very smart boys to know where to find the warmth!

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Seriouslies? You went out when there was cold frost on the grass? You guys were FURRY brave back then! We're quite content with the indoors right now! Brrrr.

Derby, Ducky said...

Get back to the fire and stay warm.

Tillie and Georgia said...

Soon you will be able to go out and play and not freeze your toesies!
In the mean time, it is fun to see how things were a few years ago ;)
Purrs Tillie and Georgia,

Katie and Glogirly said...

It's bitterly cold here too! I don't even remember what that green stuff your walking on looks like.
; ) Katie

Janet Blue said...

We hate cold toesies. We haven't been able to go out either because we have all had the sneezies and have snow on the ground. Enjoy the fire. We only have radiators to curl up by. Purrs and hugs, the kitties at www.thecatonmyhead.com, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette

Deb Barnes said...

Brrr..... glad you got in a quick sniff and then got to go back in to snooze by the warm fire! Purrs from the Zee/Zoey gang!

Katie Isabella said...

Boys, yes..by the fire. Stay in except for the necessary.

Maggie M said...

Terrific flash back pictures of you handsome boys. We are sorry it has been so cold and you have not been able to get out for a walk. Stay warm. Hugs and nose kisses

Shaggy and Scout said...

savannahspawtracks.com said...

Callie (a.k.a. Trouble) said...

Yeah, sometimes going outside is definitely over rated!
