Eric's Day Flashback.

This flashback comes from April 2007 and was when we were recovering from too much nip on our birthday.


Well we had a great time for our birthday. Lots of kitties teleported over to see us, but now we have just about recovered from Nip overload. I couldn't make it off the sofa, and Eric kept complaining I was taking up too much space.


Eric had to go out in the sun in our outdoor run to sleep it off.


When we went outdoors, he couldn't even find the energy to walk.

Well who needs to walk when you can ride?

A bit of fresh air helps clear your nippy head.
Personally I think dad must have been on the nip.
As we said. lots of kitties came to see us. Grr came specially to give me (Flynn) a birthday kiss, and that was even better than the nip.
Rosie came over on her jetpack to see Eric, so he was really happy too. Cheeto couldn't make it because he was watching out for the Easter Bunny.
We had a visit from MuShue Pooh, and Meeko, Kiara and Emmy who all arrived about the same time. Then Scooby, Shaggy and Scout got here followed by our new friend Oscar the puppycat. (By the way, he doesn't look like a puppy, he's definitely a kitty.) Then Kellie came followed by Finny, Buddy, Grady and Gilmore.
We were doing tours of the fields for anycat that was interested, and shown where the vishus deer live. We had a few sightings of them, but it was ok because Daisy brought some cans of Mao and Rocky's VDR with her. We did several tours cuz there was a lot of interest in seeing the vishus deer from a safe distance.
We took Grr, Midnight and Cocoa, Scooby Shaggy and Scout and Rosie and Daisy, and they were really excited to see them. Then Forty Paws arrived, so we took them down. Beezer wanted to come too, but only got as far as the food, and said we'd better go on without him. Jake and Bathsheba were a bit late for the tour, so they are going to come back again another time. They have invited us to Virginia so we are really excited about that.
So thanks guys to everycat who came over and made our birthday a wonderful day.

Kari said...

What a wonderful party! It's a good thing your guests were able to teleport themselves back home or your dad would have worn his legs to the bone taking all of the nipped-out
guests home by wheelbarrow.
You look adorable riding in the
wheelbarrow, darling Eric. What a
fine way to travel. Kisses and hugs.
We miss you so!
