Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the flashback is again from September 2006 and has also been left in the original Catspeak.
It is called: How to Scare your Mum!

I've been hunting again an just look what I got. I cawt me a snake!


I had a good chew on it an I fink it's dead so now I'm going to play wiv it.


Spoilsport. Mum took it away furrom me an put it unner the plantpot so dad cud see if it wuz a poison viper.That wuz after she screeched at me an told me too drop it. Drop it woman??? Do yoo know how long it took to catch it?
Eric knows it's theer an he's gonna gard it an make shoor it duzn't ex-cape.


Her's a pichur of it. It wuz neerly dead furrom me putting the bitey on it. Mum got a 14 pound sledgehammer an hit it on the head to make shoor. Dad sed the sledgehammer wuz a bit ecks-sess-iff. He finks it wuz a part groan grass snake, an theer not poy-zee-nuss so it wuz ok, but I had to be shut indoors an watched just in case I got yakky. I knew it wuz a armless snake cuz yoo can't see enny arms on it.

I am taking part in the Caturday Art with Athena, The Cat Goddess.

For Eric I started with Scribble at 55% followed by Psychedelic also at 55%

For Flynn I also started with Scribble but at 60% and followed with Flow at 50%
There are also two puzzles again this week.

That was quite the hunt but it would scare our Mom too! Your Christmas Card is so very pretty!

Snakes are very scary....yes they are! Lovely Christmas Card!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Your card is just BEAUTIFU: as is your header!!! Our Angel Thunder used to find snakes in the yard all the time. He would pick them up in his mouth and toss them up in the air - used to totally freak out Mom:)

A sledge hammer! Yes, maybe a wee bit excessive...

easyweimaraner said...

mission completed our mama ran scared away... if you see her, please send her back till lunchtime ;O))))

WILLIE...! =(^..^)= said...

A sledgehammer....??? :).

Grass snakes can grow to a maximum length of around 180cm, making it our largest native terrestrial reptiles. However they rarely reach this maximum size...
Grass snakes do however regularly exceed lengths of one metre, with the females being larger than males!

What fond memories I would had run from that snake heheh!
this bit cracked me up
Drop it woman??? Do yoo know how long it took to catch it? LOLOL

I always like the artistic versions too and I like your header

Have a tanfastical weekend :-)

Pam and Teddy said...

Oh what a fun memory - well fun for the boys and not so much for Mom and her sledgehammer! That's such a funny story - those boys were the BEST of hunters for sure.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom too

Tyler (Staff Writer) said...

It looks like these boys were fearless at times! It always seems like they were so blessed to experience full lives of love and adventure.

My Mind's Eye said...

Well done you brave boys you were the best perimeter guards in the world. Snakes make my skin crawl...
Hugs Cecilia

Kea said...

Whoa! You were a mighty hunter indeed. This biped is a bit freaked out about your mum smashing the snake with a sledgehammer, but that probably was the most merciful thing to do at that point.
Shudder.

Sandee said...

Thank you for the beautiful Christmas card. Most appreciated.

Yikes on that snake. I don't care for snakes either. They scare me to pieces.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. ♥

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Snake!!! Yikes! I would have freaked out... Love the art!!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Eek! I don't know what I would do if my cats caught a snake - poisonous or not! Even small lizards freak me out.

messymimi said...

Those are the good snakes, we leave them alone. We also used to keep some as pets, so we are odd.

Happy Christmas!

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

Aww yes those pesky snakes. I've had a few dropped on my drop step. I'd rather now partake of that! Well glad the boys took riddance of it! Lovely artwork of those two precious Angels.

Summer said...

Can you believe my human felt bad for the snake? She loves them. She's kind of nutty like that.

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

I would have SCREAMED bloody murder if I had seen that in person! xoxo

The Florida Furkids said...

We don't think the sledgehammer is at all excessive!!!

The Island Cats said...

That was a good catch. Too bad humans are such spoil sports and wouldn’t let you have it.

Greg_1948 in_WA said...

Snakes are definitely scary and not something we would wish to be brought into the house dead or alive!!!

Unknown said...

I just love these! Thanks for sharing! :D Deborah

Cathy Keisha said...

You were an amazing hunter Flynn. I'll bet you could protect me if I needed protecting.

Ruby Rose and the Big Little Angels 3 said...

That is awesome. You saved your family.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Scary snake! My mum would scream if she saw one.

The J-Cats said...

That was furry brave of you!
Our Human would purrobably faint if she saw a snake (mol).

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

I don't blame your mom one bit for freaking out!

Cleo's Dad said...

Nice work on the snake, and the art's awesome as always. Wonderful flashback.

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

The boys were brave. We don't play with snakies here. TBT found one was poisonus.

meowmeowmans said...

We're pretty sure that would scare our Mumm too!

Great artwork, Mum Jackie. And we love your e-card for the holidays! XO

Katie Isabella said...

Boys, you just got my mom to laughing a lot here! And she and I are both impressed with your dedding skills! My goodness! I needed you here a few days ago. You would have been kept just as busy as you were there. XXX

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

Our mom isn't particularly scared of snakes but she would have had a heart attack if any of us had caught one!

Little Binky and Granny said...

OMC that... thing looks Yikes! You're very brave to catch it, sweet angel and I think your mom was too..*gulp* Maybe she can get herself a role in the movie with the sledgehammer...MOL...Beautiful artwork! Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead🐾😽💞

The Swiss Cats said...

That was a great catch, Flynn ! Zorro caught a snake one day, and Momo was super happy : he was screaming his joy at the top of his lungs, MOL ! But he used a shovel after that, like your mom with the hammer... Purrs

Timmy Tomcat said...

You really caught a fine snake Flynn. We hope we get them next summer when we have our cat fence done. Whee.
PS
Mom was spot on with guessing our new kittahs they are indeed Beswick figures from The Tales of Beatrix Potter.

pilch92 said...

They were quite the hunters. That is a big snake. I would have ran and screamed my head off even if it was dead. Thank you for the puzzles. XO

Hairballsandhissyfits.com said...

what a brave fierce hunter! Very impressive gift for mom (even if she didn't appreciate it!)

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

These Moms! What is their problem? They get all squeal-y and make a big fuss over nothing! Looks like the perfect cat toy to us!

Linda said...

Eek! Snakes are creepy. Love the art effects though.
