Friday Flashback and Caturday Art

In May 2007 the boys were tagged for 7 Random Facts so I thought I would repeat that post. I have left it in the original Catspeak.

We have been tagged by Obi furrom Forty Paws, China Cat and Chase.
Here are the rules. Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write on their own blog about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment that they have been tagged and to read your blog!
We haf racked our brains to come up wiv seven facts each.

Eric:
1. When the Beans are in bed, I like to sleep on dad's head wiv my paw on mum's head.
2. My faverit game is rolled up silver paper. When it is thrown furr me, I pick it up and bring it back to be thrown again.
3. I love water. I will play with it furr hours.
4.If I'm hungry, I wake the Beans up by biting theer noses. They don't seem to like it furry much.
5. For a big mancat I only haf a furry small meow.
6. I haf a rather large floppy tummy, and when I run, mum sez I look like a cow with it's udder swinging.
7. I like rain. As soon as I hear it start, I go in our outdoors run to sit in it.

Flynn:
1. I like to go in our outdoors run at night and yowl at the moon. Mum calls me a Banshee.
2. I'm a furry good hunter. I'm not allowed to catch birds though. As well as catching mice, I haf caught snakes, moles and weasels.
3. I like to eat my food with my paws.
4. I love catnip. I drool and roll and my eyes go glazed.
5. As soon as I hear beeps coming furrom the compooter, I know that means mum has turned it on, and I come running and haf to sit on it to make sure mum duzn't make enny mistakes.
6. I like to sleep on my back wiv my legs in the air.
7. When the Beans go to bed, I like to git unner the kwilt and cuddle into mum's tummy.

There wasn't a photo in this post so I chose a random early photo.
This gave me an idea and if anyone wants to give a date starting from 2006 I will find the photo nearest that date and publish it each week.
This one is called waiting for Mr.Mousie (or possibly Mr.Rat) and was taken on 12th August 2006.


I used it for Caturday Art and only added Sadness at 45%. I was going to add at least one more filter but liked how simple it looked.

of course there is a puzzle.

What a wonderful flashback, you've let me in a bit more on what the boys were like. Quite the unique personalities, both!

John Bellen said...

Well, I have to say that I think Eric was a little weirder than Flynn - but both had adorable habits...

Meezer's Mews & Terrieristical Woofs said...

Its always fun to do flashbacks like this one...and since I hardly knew your boys, now I do a bit more:)
That was a challenge of a puzzle!

I started showing our fur-kids in Dec 2009...on websites that are no longer around, alas.

That sure was fun hearing about Eric and Flynn in the old days. Hope all of you have a fantastic day.

Pam and Teddy said...

Loved reading the boys' random facts...they were such sweet and interesting boys and no doubt they keep each other entertained as Angels just as much as they did here with you. How about finding a post from Christmastime, 2007 to share with us??

Hugs, Teddy

Those boys sure did know how to have fun. Our Angel Thunder was a big snake hunter. He would find snakes in the grass and toss them up in the air - totally freaking out the Mom:)

Have a good weekend.

Our big mancat Woodrow also has a small meow like Eric. It's very cute.

I hate to purchase an external hard drive to keep all of my photos. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have such precious photos of Praline. Thank you for continuing to share memories of Eric and Flynn.

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

Cathy Keisha said...

Whoa! I didn't know a lot of those facts about Flynn! I think I remember posting random facts.

Katie Isabella said...

Flynn, Eric, reading these fact about you I am not surprised in any way, not at all, that your parents loved you two with all their hearts. You were loving and wonderful members of the family always. XXXXX

pilch92 said...

I enjoyed reading these facts. It must have been nice having them to cuddle with in bed. My Sammy is a lot like Eric, he sleeps on my head and he is a big boy with a tiny meow. Thank you for the puzzle. Praying you both stay healthy. XO

WE love your flashbacks and photos!!
Let's see how about July 1, 2006. That would have been Abby's 7th birthday.

Timmy Tomcat said...

How about July 15th 2007? That is my birthday. We really enjoyed hearing about those facts and love that the boys are still with us!

Timmy Tomcat said...

PS: We hope things are good as possible where you are and wish you and yours good health and safety

Anonymous said...

WOWWIE! That is even BEFORE Queen Penelope started blogging! Mum remembers the post and Forty Paws, China Cat and Chase so it was after she was reading the cat blogs. If we had to pick a date it would be December 25, 2006!
We hope you guys stay safe and all you tests go well.

Flynn caught a WEASAL? WOW. We can't even catch a skerrel!

With both of them watching over the mouse hole, that mouse wouldn't have the slightest chance of getting past them.
