Eric's Day - The Tractor Driver.

All of these photos show how Eric loved to be around the various farm machinery with his dad. He was shut in the garden when it was being used though for safety. Most of the photos are from 2008 and 2009.

When the tractor was parked in the barn, the door was usually open and Eric would love to get in to nap on the seat.

If he could share it with dad, so much the better.

He was just as happy on the outside too.
He also liked to check out the trailer.




If dad wanted to use the small tractor, he would make sure everything was all right first.
And then help him with his work.
The mini digger would also be checked before he would let dad use it.

He would see if the grass machine needed any maintenance before dad could use it.
At the end of the day he would join dad on the trailer towbar for a manly cuddle.
I hope you have enjoyed these pictures of Eric's work on the farm.

We think Eric could have been a lorry driver or a heavy equipment operator if he had been human. A real manly cat.

We bet your Dad misses his assistant tractor driver helping him in the fields - and of course the tractor's maintenance.

We love seeing Eric and his tractor! Seeing him with his dad reminds me of seeing my Dad in the yard and garden, followed by the cats... they stayed away from the roosters, though!

We think this photo sequence is one of the very best ever! The pictures

had the best life, didn't he. Alas, way
to short. We miss Eric so!.

Eric certainly was a hard worker, inspector and snoopervisor. And curious as well. We always enjoy seeing these photos from the past since we didn't know you all back then. We know the three of you are still missing Eric bunches. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
