Eric's Day Flashback.

This flashback comes from January 2007 and shows that even though Eric was a big mancat he could still be:
Eric the Athlete.


Mum and Flynn both say all I do is lay around or eat. Well here's the proof that sometimes I am very lively. This is my ratty and I am getting ready to pounce on him.


Here I go, I'll give him what for.


This is me with a mousie that Flynn caught for me.


I was having a good game with it, and I can be really speedy somtimes.


See I was that fast that mum couldn't keep up with me and it looks like she chopped my head off. Don't worry Rosie, my head is still there really!


I was that tired out after that I had to lie on the floor with my fluffcat. See we are the same colour. I put the bitey on fluffcat usually, but I was just too tired in this picture.

We are in awe over Eric's prowess! It's nice that you remember him every week. And thanks for suggesting something similar with me and Russell. We might try that if it doesn't make my mom too sad.

These were wonderful photos. Just wonderful. I especially like the second one where it looks like Eric is "flying"...his back legs straight out behind him. He was indeed very athletic!
