Eric's Day Flashback - The Mouse.

This Flashback comes from January 2008 and is of Eric catching his very own mousie instead of relying on me. I hope the video plays as we don't seem to have it on You Tube.


When I was in the field with mum, I thought I heard something in the grass. It was a mouse! I listened carefully then I pounced. I caught it all on my own. It wasn't Flynn, it was me. And here's a video clip of me with my very own mousie.

See Flynn I can catch them for myself.

It has taken a long time to be able to watch videos of Eric again, but he was having such fun that it deserves to be shown again.

We are embarassed ta say that we (falsely) remembed Eric catching mousies before you Flynn. The mind plays tricks...

What a lovely video of Eric having fun. Bittersweet for you and Flynn but good to see him enjoying himself.

Marg said...

Oh Eric, you did have a good time with that mouse. It must have made your Mum a little sad. It made our person a little sad too but such fun seeing you having such a good time. Take good care.

Thanks for sharing that most awesome video! Eric was having so much fun! That's how Minchie plays with his fake little mousies. He would love to play with a real one like that. Mum says no. :(

Thank goodness you have the videos and such a treasure of pictures.
Eric is sorely missed, never forgotten. One thing I see on Flashback Friday is that Eric lived life to the fullest, he loved and was loved and that is all any of us want. You are wonderful feline parents
hugs madi and mom

We loved seeing that video of Eric. You are right he was having such fun and it's good to be reminded of that. I only have a handful of videos of Abby as I didn't take many and I know the heartache you speak of when watching them. but I am so glad I have her meow on camera. So I can remember. I never want to forget and I want to be able to hear it again and again and again.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh Eric! Talk about pawsome! THAT was a hunt to remember and so good that your mummy got it all on video. Flynn, I know you can hunt well too but seeing Eric, ah...that was good. Very very good. Love you Angel Eric. xxoo

We think the earth may have shook all over again!! Eric was such a fine cathelete, his mousie-hunting form was the BEST.

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! Eric had a swell time. It’s amazing that a camera was around at the right time. That never happens here.

Timmy Tomcat said...

That sure put smile on our faces! For a big guy Eric sure had plenty of athletic grace and agility.....and great mousing skills!

Awesome Eric!It can be bittersweet to watch videos over photos because they are more real with sound and movement.I'm so glad you have these treasures. I wish I had more videos of Merlin!

Clooney said...

Yay for sweet Angel Eric and his mousie! Purrs to you, we feel that way when we watch videos of our Angel Inka.

Kari said...

We love our Eric and are thrilled to see him again. Bitter sweet but completely heart warming, it is. What a wonderful life he had. He knew only love, bless him.
