Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week's flashback comes from January 2007 and is called:
Carrot Wars.
I have translated from the original catspeak this week.


Mummmm!!! Eric's got my carrot. He knows it's my favourite


Hehehehe, I never get chance to play with this nippy carrot.


Yeah well now I've got it back again.


This is my most favourite toy in the whole wide world.
It took me a long time to drool all over it and get the smell just right.


Awww go on Flynn, let me play with it.


NO!!!! Mine!!! Go and find your scruffy rat to play with. Scruffy's there beside the balls that's behind me, and you never let me play with him.

I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.


I started with Metallic at 50% then added Flow at 35%
And the puzzle

I am also joining Sandee at Comedy Plus for the Feline Friday blog hop.

If Eric and Flynn were anything like us, we always want the toy the other one has:)

would have been fun..!xx

Pam and Teddy said...

It's not easy sharing sometimes is it boys....well I'm lucky in that respect since I don't have to "discuss" toys with anyone but myself!! You two were both fans of the carrot but worked it out. Good boys!

Hugs, Teddy

Aww! amazing what problems a carrot can cause the translation made me smile along with the photos loved the art too :-)

Have a carrottastic weekend :-)

My Mind's Eye said...

Oh my goodness two most handsome Gingers and their carrot. Angel Madi loved her nip carrot too. MOL Until I saw Teddy's comment..I was hesitant to add that Madi was rather possessive and probably would not have shared.
Happy Friday
Hugs Cecilia

Marg said...

We don't like to share much either. But it is always fun to see the Angel boys. Have a great day.

Kathe W. said...

hah! I never thought of making a cat nip carrot toy! Such a beautiful kitty too!

Catscue Cat Mom said...

They sure loved that carrot - cute boys!

Sandee said...

Carrots are more fun to play with than eat. So cute.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. ♥

Eastside Cats said...

You know what, Angels Flynn & Eric...I buy two of everything, so Manny and CB can each have their own...but they still fight over one! Must be a cat thing that humans just cannot understand...! Thanks for the puzzle; I'll play later today!

Three Chatty Cats said...

Looks like it was quite the popular carrot!

Katie Isabella said...

Boys, I seem to at least think I recall the carrot!

Greg_1948 in_WA said...

We used to have fun with a nip carrot! I wonder what happened to it. Looks like a search is in order. You never know what you are going to "rediscover!"

Unknown said...

I always get a tickle out of these! Thanks for sharing every week! :D Deborah

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

Catnip carrots are the best!

The Island Cats said...

That carrot looked like a lot of fun,

Cathy Keisha said...

I think I have a carrot just like that. TW has it hidden away. I think I did the puzzle in record time even though I'm sure I'm still last.

Ivan and Izzy from WMD said...

MOL! Sharing a prized toy can be contentious!

The Indulged Furries said...

Friendship and brotherhood only goes so far. Taking favorite toys might be crossing the line.

Cleo's Dad said...

That sure looks like tons of fun. I think I'll ask dad for one of those to replace my poor beat up pretzel. Wonderful flashback as always.

messymimi said...

Awww, everyone has a favorite. Have a great weekend!

Erin the Cat Princess said...

Mol, that sounds just like would sound if anyone pinched my carrot. Of course that probably wouldn't happen if it was a sprout, Mol
Purrs to you all

Erin the Cat Princess said...

PS. That was a great jigsaw and Mrs H managed 9:55. Not bad sitting on the sofa with a mouse and a cat, MOL

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

That looked like the perfect toy for both boys! Loved your artwork!

Laila and Angel Minchie said...

That carrot was definitely a cool toy worth fighting over!

Anonymous said...

WOW! We LOVE that carrot! We are ecumenical! We share the nippy toys here! We LOVE the Cat Patrol Header! Ninja and I think that when the weather gets better we shall start a chapter here! And now Mommy and I are off to do the puzzle.

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

That carrot looks like a fun toy!

Great art :)

The Creative Cat said...

I love to see those big boys!

Shoko Neilson said...

Flynn and Eric look fantastical in your art work. A great couple of boys.

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

That sure looks like a great toy!

pilch92 said...

Such cuties. THat was a fun flashback. I love it when cats have favorite toys. Thanks for the puzzle. XO

meowmeowmans said...

Oh, I remember Eric and Flynn's carrot. This was s sweet memory. :)

John Bellen said...

The boys could be very possessive over their toys, eh? Well, that's not surprising; they're cats.

The Swiss Cats said...

That carrot looks like a lot of fun ! Purrs

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

MOL...nipped carrots must be so much fun, sweet Angels😸Pawkisses for a Happy Tuesday🐾😽💞

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

BROTHERS! They're always all up in your favorite toy!

Mary (cactus catz) said...

Awww, if it was a real carrot, you could chop it in half like Solomon did. It is hard to share your favorite toy. Pinkie and Midnight don't like to share at all.

Hairballsandhissyfits.com said...

siblings of all species sometimes have a hard time sharing!

Katie Isabella said...

I have drooled all over mine and I even have some that Admiral drooled on! Tell your momma I am thinking of her...each day.

Nancy Chan said...

They are just like little kids fighting over toys to play. And later they become thick of friends again.
