Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback comes from April 2012 and features Eric who....
Won't Get Fooled Again.
Why are you holding your phone out to me?

Do you want me to speak to someone?

That's cheating! You didn't tell me it was a camera in disguise. You won't be getting away with that sneaky trick again!

Of course I can't leave Flynn out, so here is a one photo post of his from a couple of days later.

Mum was refilling my nippy toys and the tub fell off the cat tree. Score!!!

I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

I used the last photo of Eric and started with Sadness at 25%, followed by Beauty at 40% and finished with Red Blush at 35%.
I did a 2nd picture with the Deep Dream Generator, and this one was using "A Winter's Tale."


Of course there is a puzzle.

Eric, Mom can't trick us with her camera, we expect treats when she brings that out. But we still get tricked by that phone. And Flynn, why can't somebody figure out something like nip for us dogs?

Cute memories.

Oh, Eric's face in the third photo! He was SO not amused!

Gigi said...

Aw, Eric looks so great! And Flynn really SCORED with that spilled Nip. Woo-hoo. The Human loves online jigsaws so she's off to put the winter one together! XOXO

we feel the same... there is the phone close to our ears and what happens? she takes a photo... and we thought we maybe got a phonecall from a fabulous girl... humans huh?

Poppy Q said...

Awwww Eric - I miss yoo!!!

Lone Star Cats said...

Luv those nose freckles!

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Handsome boys ... handsome nose freckles, Eric! Those humans are tricky ... you never know what they're up to ... especially the Mums.

Marg said...

Wow Flynn, what a lucky boy you are to have scored all that Nip. Bet you had some fun.

Brian said...

We enjoyed that fun trick and who wouldn't enjoy all that nip?!?!

stevebethere said...

Well that isn't fair tricking him with the camera heheh!

Love the art and I hope the nip was shared heheh!

You're so cute, Angel Eric. Didn't know you were into gambling...MOL😺Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend to all of you🐾😽💞

My Mind's Eye said...

Oh Eric we moms were so tricky but then we had to be because our lovely furries are good a looking away.
Love your Caturday art

what lovely cats! I bet you miss them. Take care!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

Mrs H seldom tries to disguise the camera these days. and shots of me from above are a complete NO since she dropped the camera on me!
Eric's second art picture is really nice, and the colours change him to maybe an African wild Caracal look...

My kitties didn't much care for the flashy box back in the day. Mom did a good job getting great shots though. You'd think mom would learn that if you don't like something she should be doing it.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. ♥

Eastside Cats said...

Oh man, TWO PUZZLES! I'm got to get on my other laptop...brb!

Three Chatty Cats said...

That was quite the trick played on you! Gotta watch out for those sneaky camera phones. Fun flashback!

Laila and Angel Minchie said...

Love the closeup of that cute pink nose!

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh those photos of Eric are priceless - what an expression! Flynn looks comfy and when the nip lands on the floor in a big blob - EVERYONE IS HAPPY!

Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam too

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! Hullo? Can I speak to Eric? This phone service to the RB sux. Heh heh. Yeah, you won't get fooled twice.

pilch92 said...

Thank you for your kind words on my blog on the loss of Tallulah. She is missed. And hank you for two beautiful puzzles to do, a perfect distraction for me right now. XO

messymimi said...

Talk about scoring some nip! My cats would love it if i’d drop their bottle.

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

We dint remember THIS one! But spilled NIP? Yeah, thats a gift from Ceiling Cat

Kitties Blue said...

We are now wise to that phnoe trick as well and always look away. Both arty creations are terrific, but our favorite photo is the close-up of Eric's nose freckles. So cute! XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Katie Isabella said...

Your boys are deeply into my heart! I think you know that. 💗

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

No flies on that boy!

Peaches and Paprika said...

Hey is that a freckle we see on that adorable feisty nose???

John Bellen said...

It was worth the trickery for that close-up.

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

We just want to see that cute face!

meowmeowmans said...

Well, we're kinda glad Mum tricked you boys. Because that just meant we got to see your handsome faces. :)

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

It's good to see your handsome faces, Mom uses her phone more than the camera these days so we barely have time to hide.

Hairballs and Hissyfits said...

i love Eric's expression! He does not take nonsense!

The Swiss Cats said...

Great close-up, and nice art ! Purrs

Anonymous said...

Great Flashback! And a Terrific photo of Eric!
Mom is heading right over to do the puzzle

Cathy Kennedy said...

Oh, those cameras posing as a phone are always tricky! What I hate is people who photograph you when you're in public! Who gives them the right to point and shoot anyhow? You just never know where your picture will turn up when that happens, too. I cringe to think. Oh well...your human pet means you no harm so just relax and enjoy the attention. Have a pAwesome day!

Herman and Dori said...

We love when catnip tubes roll off table and spill all over the floor. Sometimes they happen accidentally on purrpose!

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

What a cute little nose! Our mom would be kissing it all day. MOL

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

loved those shots! xoxo

Fr. Tom Fishworthy said...

Do I love when you do the artsy thingy! Very cool. Not so cool is to pull a fast one with the phone. How are we cats to know about phones and cameras inside? Sounds James Bond to me..- Tom x

Gigi said...

Oh oh oh! We are soooo embarrassed about our FLUB on the blog about Bad hare Day!!! We feel soooo stoopy, because the Human had even taken particular note when she saw your comment that you knew the guy's work! But then when we did our post last evening, the fact just flew away from her memory (kind of like the fact that she'd put the kettle on to boil to make coffee and it boiled to almost NUFFING before she wondered what that whistling noise was . . . .) We have corrected yesterday's post. On behalf the pathetic human, I beg your forgiveness! XOXOXO & Purrrrrrrs

That's about the most adorable nose shot ever!

Nancy Chan said...

Lovely memories. So sweet.

M. K. Clinton said...

That look was perfect! How dare you try to disguise your camera as a phone. MOL!
