Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

I have now updated my Christmas Cards 2019 Page with all my E cards and snail mail cards. Thanks to all who sent.
The boys still get more cards than we do, 39 for them and 32 for us!

This post was originally published on January 2007, and once again I have left it in the original catspeak.

Growing Up.


This is me, Eric when I fink I wuz abowt 8 weeks old. I am wiv Kitty Yum Bum hoo wuz the old lady cat hoo wuz lonely cuz she wuz the only one left furrom all her brofurrs an sisfurrs an cuzzins. Me an Flynn came to our furrefurr home when we wuz  5 1/2 weeks old to look after her. She didn't like us at furrst, but I allus slept beside her efun though she told me she didn't want me theer. In the end she reely luvved us, an yoosed to go efurry where wiv us.



I wuz 8 munfs old heer, see I wuz a big boy alreddy. She only weighed 6lbs, an wuz a dainty lil girl.



Heer we all are togevver when we wuz about 6 munfs old. Kitty YB wuz 13 when we arrived an only lived furr anuvver 2 yeers. We wuz efurr so sad when she went to the Bridge, an mum still talks abowt her to us. Mum sez she wuz her speshull girl, cuz when dad's Beans died, owr Beans adopted theer 9 kitties and the two ladycats must haf been broken becuz they had to get fixed. When she took them in, the V E T sed one wuz going to haf kittens, so she took her home again an a couple of weeks later she had 7 babies. Mum fownd good homes furr 6 of them, but no-one wanted the last one cuz she wuz so small, so she kept her. She alreddy had one kitty of her own, so that meant the Beans had 11 kitties then. Mum sez she wuz speshull cuz the ladycat wuz only just pregnant, an if the V E T hadn't notissed, then she wud nefurr haf been born. She yoosed to ride round on mum's shoulder and didn't like ennyone at all except mum. She wudn't efun let dad pet her until we came along.

  17. Older cats, we have noticed, tend to hiss at babies, and then decide the babies are great at keeping them warm!

    These are lovely memories, i am glad you shared them.

  23. What a wonderful collection of Christmas cards. I don't think I've ever seen that many. The art filters you used are pretty. I like that you can still see all the details from the photo, even the bunnies in the background.

  25. Such precious memories. I really feel it all reading your memories. Made me tear up! It was lovely that kitty YB wasn't alone anymore when you came and you all had at least the two years together. I wish everypawdy would live much much longer. Sending love from us all <3 Natascha and the kitties Samantha, Sonic, Hero and Lisa <3

  32. Kitty Yum Bum was indeed special; she was a cat-mum to the boys and no doubt showed them so much about being a cat. What love there is in those pictures.

  36. Great flashback! Housekeeper says we're missing out by not having our own ginger kitty. I say not..but I can be convinced, I think! - Tom x

  37. Loved this flashback...it reminded me of our old Mancat Groucho who was a fatherly(grandfatherly) figure to three wee ones over the span of his life with us.He would shun and hiss them for about three days, then invite them to play by chirping at them...then they would curl up together,.
