Friday Flashback - Tree Climbers Part 1 and 2.

This week the flashback comes from July 2012 and these are two posts that followed each other a couple of days apart which I have put together.

Part 1. Eric: I leave most of the tree climbing to Flynn because it is much too energetic for me.

The other day we were walking past our favourite oak tree and I shot up it. I went so fast mum almost missed me.

She got a better picture when I walked along the branch though.
I am going to leave it to Flynn again but I showed him I can still do it.

Part 2. Flynn: Last week Eric surprised me by climbing up the tree. He hasn't done that for ages, but I thought I had better show him how a professional does it. I am not peeing here, I am eyeing up the tree.

Make sure my claws are good and sharp first.

Get ready to spring....

and up I go. Keep watching Eric.

This is the first fork in the big trunk and we used to sit in here together.

This is the harder part because it leans the wrong way.

But it is no problem to me and I am soon up higher.

Did you take note of all that Eric? I'm coming down now.

See, easy peasy!

No art again this week but of course there is a puzzle. The art will be back next week!

Nice work, boys. We think it would be fun to climb a tree too - then we could finally get those pesky squirrels!!!

Summer said...

What a showoff, Flynn! But admittedly, he WAS good!

Lone Star Cats said...

I bet I'd be a good tree climber too - I'm always climbing in the house.

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh you boys were magnificent tree climbers - that is a wonderful tree for it too! I've never tried to climb a tree other than the furry one with platforms Mom and Dad got me that's in my basement! HAHAHA

Hugs, Teddy

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

From where I'm sitting, you both look like pros!

The Whiskeratti said...

Yep, Flynn was a pro fur sure.

John Bellen said...

Good Heavens! I’d be afraid one of them would get stuck up there. Coming down always seems tougher than going up. But then, Flynn was an expert.

colibri said...

I do like your free style, Flynn, specially when you go up the tree !

Kitties can climb trees very well. They can get back down too, but will test you on that one.

Have a terrific day and weekend. ♥

Flynn makes it look so easy! I hope Eric took note. Although he seemed to do just fine.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Those trees look like they'd be so much fun to climb into!

Greg_1948 in_WA said...

I am glad they were able to get down out of the trees by themselves! I generally have had to rescue mine in the past with a ladder!

stevebethere said...

They loved tree climbing by the LQQKS of it heheh!

Have a branchtastic weekend :-)

Eastside Cats said...

I've been thinking of building a tree-house for the cats, so they don't have to work so hard to get up there! Off to puzzle...

OMCs were you two gingers acrobats and well balanced too.

That's some impressive climbing ! Our trees are not that high ! Purrs

messymimi said...

Very good climbing, it looks like fun, and i used to always enjoy being in a tree when i was a kid.

catladymac said...

Good job, bys ! Not only going up, but coming down, which is sometimes difficult for kitties.

pilch92 said...

They were both great tree climbers. Thank you for the puzzle. XO

Peachy, Stippie, Angel Binky and Granny said...

That was really a big climb, Angel Eric and Flynn, I wish you were here to teach me, as I only do..eh...did small trees :D YAY! a puzzle...on my way to jigsaw😺Pawkisses🐾😽💞

Cleo's Dad said...

Oh, those adventurous boys! Not sure how I'd do up in a tree. Wonderful flashback.

meowmeowmans said...

We've never climbed THAT kind of tree, Angels Eric and Flynn. You boys sure did make it look easy. :)

what a GREAT tree! Kozmo would love it! He loves to climb the tree in the back yard...maybe someday, I, Marvelous will get to climb it! And it sure looks like Eric and Flynn are super climbers! We did the puzzle...we are out of practice, but we LOVEd doing it.

I like to watch cats climb trees. Buddy hasn't been interested in climbing. He like to run to a tree and climb up a few feet and then jump back to the ground.

Katie Isabella said...

BOYS! LOOK at the ease that the two of you conquered that gnarly old Oak! I am doubly impressed by your fortitude and strength...and handsomeness if I say so myself.

Mary (cactus catz) said...

I love Flynn's lesson for Eric on treeclimbing but it looks like he can do a pretty good job when he wants to.

Kitties Blue said...

These are really terrific photos of the boys. We used to have some tree climbers around here when all the kitties were inside/outside, including Misty May and Mau. They don’t do it anymore. I guess at almost 15, they have decided it is too difficult. I know if Sawyer had the chance he’d be climbing trees. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

Erin the Cat Princess said...

Wow that was an excellent demo, Flynn, you make it seem so easy. I am not the best of tree climbers, and appreciate the skill involved..... especially in getting back down again, MOL
