The Friday Flashback - Eric's Day.

Eric's Day was originally a Tummy Tuesday and comes from March 2011.

We have had nearly a week of sunny weather so I like to lie on the shelf of our outdoor run and catch the rays. The run is only used for holidays but is left on the lawn the rest of the time so we can sunbathe on the shelf if we want to. It's a good place to show off my tummy.

Dad came over and rubbed his head against me. I think he is trying to make me smell like him.

Now I will have to have a bath and get my smell right.

Quick wash of the legs and that should do it.

Finished! Don't do that again dad, it's me who is supposed to put my smell on you, not the other way round.

That's a pretty darn fine tummy as ManCat tummies go, but purrsonally I am devoted to Iza's tum and SHE washes my ears for me when I take a nappy on it. ;-)
