The Friday Flashback with Eric and decisions.

I have been thinking about what is going to happen with this blog. Flynn will keep it going and I have already changed the Avatar and put it in just Flynn's name. Eric's name will remain in the header for always. They have blogged together for almost 7 years and it wouldn't feel right for me to change it to just Flynn's name. I will continue to use all our old headers through choice. I don't want to change them.
We most likely will only post 3 or 4 times a week and not daily as before. Eric will have a Flashback post now and again and the first one is today. Please enjoy our boy.

ONE FOR THE LADIES.

Now what was it I was going to do?


Oh of course, bath time! Lick lick, slurp slurp.


Mustn't forget the toesies.


Are you ready for this ladies?
Ta Daaa!
Maybe I could be a centrefold.

We will always be glad to see Eric Flashbacks...

Sagira said...

Eric will always be a part and I agree removing him would feel very wrong. I'm sorry you have to even think about these things. So heart breaking.

We love your poses handsome tabbyman. We think you should keep the blog, we want to hear about your adventures.

Ah what a tummy! Breathtaking, just breathtaking....sigh.
You will always be in our hearts, Eric.

We love you Flynnie Flynn! We need you to be a part of our lives. Just because you are no longer part of a pair doesn't make us want you any the less. We love YOU and the sweetness you've always brought to the blog.
We want to be a part of your life and be included in your
adventures. You bring us so much joy and happiness.
You are our incredibly dear friend. We'd be lost without
you. Our mum is in tears thinking we won't have you to start our mornings. You are precious beyond belief. (Yes, we love you THAT much.)
Love to all.

We love this flashback of Eric, and we love your decision. Eric will always be in your hearts, and all of ours, so it is only right that he always be a part of your blog.

Hugs!

What a wonderful post to kick off a new era of blogging...we remember this post when it first "aired", no kidding.

Eric will always be with you (and us) in our hearts, and it seems so right to still include him on the headers and on the blog; he's such a purrsonality we know he still has more to say.

The Island Cats said...

We sure enjoyed that Eric flashback! What a guy!!

And we're glad you will keep the blog and header as is...Eric will always be here in spirit.

Purrs and hugs to you.

I love the beefcake - thanks for the memory, Eric!

Punapippuri said...

My goodness - what a centrefold! What a tummy. We will look forward to Friday Flashbacks. And we always appreciate your posts, whenever they come. We worry for Flynn in this new era (and we worry for you, his humans of course). But whatever feels right to you goes - it is still time to grieve, and also to celebrate the life that you all shared. Whatever feels comfortable for you will be gratefully received here. Purrs x

Laila and Minchie said...

We are glad Flynn will continue with the blog and very happy Eric will stay in the header name. What a great flashback! Thank you for sharing.

Angel and Kirby said...

Flynn, you are one sparkling handsome mancat!

Max said...

Dood, I'm glad you're keeping the blog. No one's gonna miss Eric more than you, but if the blog went away, to the rest of us it would feel like losing you, too, and no one wants that.

Barb and the Gs said...

I wouldn't presume to tell you what to do or how to do it as everyone is different and needs to do what works best for them. Having said that, I'm so glad you'll still be blogging at least on a limited basis! I would surely miss you!

CATachresis said...

Lovely to see Eric. Flashback is a good idea. I hope Flynn is doing ok? xx :)

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

That sounds like a wonderful decision. Eric will always be with you -- and with the cat blogosphere, too.

What a handsome mancat tummy! Ashton may be fanning herself after seeing that photo, but she's too much of a lady to let on.

Marg said...

Oh we are so glad you are going to continue to blog and we love the flashbacks of Eric. That was an especially good one. Flynn, we will enjoy seeing you take a walk with the beans. We hope you are doing a tiny bit better. Take care and have a great week end.

Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Fuzzy Tales said...

We're glad we'll still see Eric in the flashback posts.

Have to admit, though, it was so sad for us to see just Flynn's name coming up in a recent comment you had left for us.

(((Hugs))) and purrs.

The Florida Furkids said...

Eric was such a Manly ManCat!!!


We're so glad you are going to continue the blog and that Eric will be part of it. We coudn't stop including Tamir and Sniffie and Flashback Friday is a great way to do it. We also kept the same headers (Ann did a big of a re-work when we got Raz).

Ginger Jasper said...

I am glad you are keeping the headers and think that is so the right choice. I am also glad you will keep blogging because it would not be the same without seeing my friend Flynn. We will keep Eric forever in our hearts and know that a lot of other friends will do that also. I am looking forward to seeing what adventures Flynn gets up to on those wonderful walks you take. The flashback is just perfect and a lovely memory of your dear sweet boy. Hugs GJ xx

Bellen said...

What a wonderful he must have been.

Great post of Flynn today. Such a handsome boy. Love the pose.

However you choose to go forward in your blogging, we support you here at The Very Best Cats. You are so loved here in the cat blogosphere and we all know this is a difficult transition time. I believe Eric is still with you and your family so it is appropiate to include him ongoing.

My thoughts and prayers and heartfelt friendship goes out to you and your family. XOXOXO

Pierro said...

Great ideas and thoughts about the blog. We know exactly how your feel. It is best to go with what feels right for you.
We miss Eric too. We miss his silly smudgy nose and his stripey tail.
I know he is with Caesar and Prinnie now, romping and gorging on crunchies

You're doing the right thing by not making big changes. When Kelly died, I took it one day at a time. After about 6 weeks, I learned about Tabby's Place and started in a new direction. Hoping something as good happens to you, too.

katsrus said...

I love his beautiful fur. He is a handsome guy. I will always love hearing about him

We're glad you're going to keep the blog open. We understand about using the same blog headers. We had a hard time taking off Crystal and later Cotton. They were with us from the beginning and we will always miss them! Nice to see a flashback post.
