Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the Flashback comes from January 2012 and is called, "Watching."
Eric: Shhh, I saw a movement and you have to be quiet.

There it is, I saw it again.

Right down the bottom by the fallen down tree.

Flynn: Oh yes, I see it Eric, it's a rat.

Eric: I am going to sneak down and get it.
Mum: Eric! Get your backside up here now!
Eric: Drat, spoilsport!

I have used the penultimate photo for my Caturday Art.
As usual I used Lunapic starting with Sunshine at 35%, then Scribble at 25% and finishing with Picasso at 50%.


You can see more by visiting Athena, The Cat Goddess.
I have also made the art into a puzzle for those of you who enjoy them. Click on the small picture to go to Jigsaw Planet.

Humans, they can be such spoilsports. MOL!

Mark Muller said...

a rat? wow you can make rat-atouille with that... but sadly our mama ruins that event always too ;O)))

Pam and Teddy said...

The hunting team finds a big juicy rat....probably good to just let it carry on its' way! You two sure could find those introoders though.......and the puzzle is not only a beautiful bit of artwork but Mom will be working on it later!!

Hugs, Teddy

Marg said...

What fun to find a rat even if you were called off so as to leave it alone. The art work is terrific. We like that a lot. You all have a terrific week end.

Brian said...

I wouldn't mess with a rat either, although I might think about it.

We love seeing wonderful flashbacks of Eric and Flynn. You two were great rat hunters. Good thing you stayed away from it. Loved the beautiful art photo that you shared. Thanks for the share. Have a great weekend.

LOL @ Eric & Flynn the great Ginger hunters! They sure had fun adventures didn't they? Love your artwork Jackie! I'd never be able to do this in a 1,000 years.
Much love Sherri-Ellen & BellaDharma x0

I'm purrty sure Eric and Flynn scared the rat into the deep dark woods...they were smart to keep their distance and just STARE

Katie Isabella said...

BOYS! I'm awfully glad your mum kept you from rats wherever she was aware you were stalking them. Bites are harsh on ginger boys!

The Island Cats said...

Ack! Humans ruin all our fun!

Cathy Keisha said...

I don't see the rat but I see a very nice work of art.

Kari said...

A rat! A real rat? Big game hunter Eric on the prowl!
Flynnie Flynn , the voice of reason.
How we wish we could do the puzzle. Mum only has an iPhone now.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

WHAT?!?! Rats garner a cat bonus points! And you weren't allowed to take care of business? Sheesh. So hard to find good humans these days. ~Bear Cat

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

The boys had such beautiful markings.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We dont think we often saw the beautiful markings on their backs! In fact, we were surprised at these pictures.

Marv Marvelous said...

Hee! Hee! Those guys always make me laugh! And that they listened to Mom...priceless!

Fun flashback. I bet they could have caught it. Thanks for the puzzle :) XO

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Those boys had such fun adventures together!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

You are much better with Lunapic than our Mom - she will have to try to figure out how you do all of that. Very nice.

The Church Cat Family said...

Always love the Caturday art and seeing the boys - Tom x

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hee hee. That was a good conversation and really mean of the Human at the end. But she made up for it with the nice art work XOXOXO

Marie Symeou said...

Fantastic art as always! And we love the storytelling that goes with it.

Catio Tales said...

Oh those mighty hunters. And those ratfink humans....

Catio Tales said...

P.S. That artwork is brilliant and Äiti loved the jigsaw. A beautiful start to a lazy Sunday morning.

Cleo said...

What a wonderful flashback. Too bad the rat attack was thwarted, though!

Little Binky and Granny said...

MOL...you were that close, angel Eric! Why do people always have to interfere with our business...sigh... Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead 🐾😽💞
Thank you for the advice on the pictures, miss Jackie, but the editor doesn't work for Windows 10. so we had to look further and found that pixl.r does reseize too and that's one that we already use for years, for other things, without knowing that it reseizes too :D We already have saved 200 MB for only two blogs, so glad we did. Extra Pawkiss🐾😽💞

meowmeowmans said...

We love that artwork of Eric and Flynn! Sorry you had to ruin Eric's fun time. :)

Three Chatty Cats said...

You two were great watchers. Love the art, too!

John Bellen said...

I’m glad Eric didn’t get a chance to attack that rat. Rats can be pretty vicious when cornered. It’s best to leave them alone.

Colehaus Cats said...

Oh, you angel boys! We bet you're watching and chasing angel rats, and are really, really good at it! What a beautiful photo!

Bryan and I loved your story about your brother's 'free spirit' at 3.
