Friday Flashback. - On Patrol.

This week for the Friday Flashback I thought I would do something different and have put together a few very short Mancat Monday posts that would otherwise not get repeated.

ON PATROL.


Warning! These grounds are guarded by Mancats on Patrol!

Vishus Deer Lookout.
On our walk around the fields yesterday, we went down into our bottom field. It was very exciting because we don't get down there very often.We have to go through the field with the horsies and sometimes mum has to shout at them because they chase us. This is the field where the vishus deer go, so we make sure mum has a can of Mao and Rocky's Vishus Deer Repellent. I was doing my lookout duty for the vishus deer. I didn't see them but I bet they were watching us. It was okay though because me and Flynn are Mancats and we would protect our mum.

Sky Patrol.
High up in a tree is a good place to do your Mancat patrols.


Two Way Patrol.
It is easier for Mancats to purrtect their property if they both sit facing opposite directions so no introoders can sneak past.

Mousie Patrol.
Now there is some new hay in the barn, we have to work very hard on mousie lookout. We make sure mum pays us well with treats.

After Patrol Relaxation.
Hard working mancats need time to relax when they have made sure everything is safe.



I have used the first photo for my Caturday Art.
Using Lunapic as usual, I started with Beauty at 30% followed by Tuscany at 40% and finished with Frida at 30%

You can see more art with Athena the Cat Goddess.


Of course I have also made the art into a puzzle. Click on the small picture to go to Jigsaw Planet.

You two were such excellent hunters and guardians.

That was fun! They sure were the best patrol cats!!!

Those two were excellent patrollers!

Mark Muller said...

cats are in advance when it comes to security patrols... you can climb on trees to make sure the air is clear too ;O)

Marg said...

It is so much fun seeing the boys doing their fun things. They did enjoy their patrols. Have a super day.

Pam and Teddy said...

Glad you are back so we can see more flashbacks of the intrepid guard-kitties at work! They were such a well organized TEAM - patrolling and protecting the borders of their kingdom. Handsome gingers doesn't hardly tell the tale - they were so special.

Love, Pam (and Teddy too)

Comedy Plus said...

That was some great guarding. Great flashbacks.

Thanks for linking to Feline Friday.

I know I keep saying it but it is true each time. I LOVE seeing them again and together. They are dear favorites of mine. I enjoy seeing their adventures each time they post. XX In the flowers is one of my favorite pictures.

You two were such wonderful mancats. Making sure the grounds were well protected. High up in the tree is a great view for any intruders. We love the Two Way Patrol photo the most. Thanks for sharing these wonderful photos and the lovely artwork. Have a great upcoming weekend.

Eric and Flynn were so good at patrolling. I love these flashbacks- and puzzles. XO

Kari said...

These are adorable Monday posts and we love the way you’ve put them together to make a delightful story. You are a marvelous author Jackie and we always thought that a book of boy’s adventures would be lovely. They were certainly captivating man cats and are obviously still loved by many people and always will be.

stevebethere said...

Eastside Cats said...

Deer and mice didn't have a chance when you two were around!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

We bet you always kept your Mum safe!

The Island Cats said...

Eric and Flynn were two of the best mancat patrollers we knew. We loved seeing them out in the fields, up trees, wherever. :)

Herman and Dori said...

We love seeing your adventures! We agree with Kari. Your mom needs to write a book about your adventures.

Jean Neilson said...

Vishus deer or anyone else doesn't stand a chance of intruding with those two on patrol.

Awesome memories.

Cathy Keisha said...

Lovely art! Angel Flynn, you scared me when you were in the tree but you were the best little mouser ever!

Kitties Blue said...

This was such a cute and clever post with the various Patrol posts pulled together. At least those vishus deer cannot climb trees! Very nice artwork as well. Mom will add that puzzle to her list of ones to do. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Your grounds were well protected with Eric and Flynn. Watch cats suberb!

LP said...


Those boys had a dream life with you! Our Mama smiled at the idea of horses chasing cats in a field! Not because she would want to think of your boys ever getting hurt in any way but because she wondered , what were those horses thinking?!!

We hope you are well. We think of you and hope that is the case xx

Sophie and the critters in the cottage xo

John Bellen said...

I love that first picture, the boys launching in to their patrols, tails up! And the photo of Eric among the daisies. That's a classic.

Cathy Kennedy said...

I like the photo of the kitty on sky patrol! lol You must have a lovely spot for your kitties to roam on. I hope someday to have a place where we can get out to enjoy more but land is so darn expensive. Maybe I'll win the lottery in the new year but first I need to start playing. lol Thanks for sharing and visiting!

William’s Kith & Kin said...

Best patrol boys ever!

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

The boys allus did such good work looking after the whole property. We remember this one.

Erin the Cat said...

My idea of paradise would be on mouse patrol with the boys. Your artwork today is wonderful, and I have to say, makes think it would make a lovely image for a jigsaw, or fine china plate.
Toodle pips and happy jigsaw purrs

Laylas Woof said...

You all look like you having so much fun and I think I should send Layla over to you to learn although she is a dog and LOL afraid of cats, this would be an awesome lesson for her
