Friday Flashback - My Mousie.

The flashback this week comes from June 2016 and is of Eric playing with a valerian mousie. This was an unusual occurrence as he would normally only play with his Scruffy Rat, but this time decided he liked valerian. Flynn would always play with anything and everything.

Eric: I love my new mousie that the Katnip Lounge kitties sent to me.

Dad likes playing with it too.

I nearly got it.

Mmmm, the smell of valerian root.

I am going to keep hold of it in case Flynn gets any ideas.
Click on the photo and it will take you to jigsaw planet to do the puzzle.

Oh yeah, gotta guard stuff from the sibs sometimes.

John Bellen said...

Ha! That last photo is perfect: Flynn's wondering, hmmmm, what have you there, Eric? Eric isn't going to tell...

What a fun memory!

That 1st picture looked dangerous to TBT. He says cat claws come from above and they don't pay much attention to fingers being in the way.

He heals fast, but now holds mousies very carefully and drops them at the 1st cat twitch. Something about "like feeding a tiger from within the cage"...

Looks like it wuz definitely enjoyed!

Valerian is awesome! I wish my human didn't think it was so stinky!

Mousie! What a pawsome one that was!

WOW....that mousie looks like it was a big hit for Angel Eric. Valerian is something Teddy hasn't experienced yet. I already know he prefers silvervine to nip. They all seem to have their own "thing" !! Love the flashbacks....and the puzzle!!

Love, Pam

Angel Eric, it sure is good to see you and Angel Flynn. Good job getting that mouse Eric.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Flynn's not judging your prowess with the mousie, Eric ;) Your puzzles always make my day!

Brian said...

That was some fun mousin' from those fun boys!

Eric looks so happy with his Valerian Root....Siddhartha henry is so picky; only likes Silvervine...altho there are a certain brand of crocheted 'Nip toys he likes....funny how unique the cats are.

SO sweet! I love watching kitties having fun with their toys :)

Caren Gittleman said...

I always marveled at the fact that they LOVE toy mice, even when they were master hunters who could capture REAL ones!!! catchatwithcarenandcody

We think it s petty hysterical how Flynn is just sitting there totally uninterested. We're pretty sure that wouldn't happen in our house. Thanks for sharing this flashback. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! I'm surprised Flynn didn't try to join in the fun.

meowmeowmans said...

Valerian mice, indeed! We can see why Eric loved it, but it's funny how Flynn is so relaxed about it. :)

Cleo said...

Awww, what a playful boy!

Catio Tales said...

Katnip Lounge valerian is seriously good -and always has been! Thanks for the memories and the jigsaw - Ă„iti's off to do it now.
