Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week I have four short posts that are all connected. They are all from September 2007 when Eric had to have a dental.I haven't translated it as it would take me forever!

#1 Dad's trying to cheer me up. I'm not sure if I like this fing moving though.
Flynn still hates me but not quite as much. This morning he ate three mouffulls of Stinky Goodness befurr he hissed at me and ran away. Mum sez we all haf to totally ignore him when he hisses and then he mite git fed up wiv doing it. She makes a big fuss of him the rest of the time though.

#2 Even Mancats haf to take it easy and haf some time off furrom their Mancat dyooties. Dad is telling me that he's reely sorry the V E T torchered me. I haf asked him if we can sell Flynn if he duzn't stop hating me. He duzn't seem furry enthyoozyastik about it, and I know mum will say no. Duz anycat want to buy him? He's a furry good hunter and catches lots of mice. He duzn't eat them, but allus gives them to me. Wait a minnit!!!! If Flynn goes, NO MORE MICE!!!
All right, furrgit what yoo read, I'll give Flynn anuvver chance, but he better start liking me soon.

#3 I haf had a furry trying few days. Last week Eric disappeared and I don't know where he went. In the evening, the Beans brought this strange poodin home wiv them. It looked just like Eric but he can't fool me cuz he duzn't smell like Eric. I haf tried my hardest to warn the Beans that he's an introoder and I want the real Eric back. I hiss at him and run away, but no-one seems to unnerstand. I'm sure it's an alien that's taken ofurr Eric's body.
Today the alien smelled a bit more like Eric, and I only hissed at him four times, and didn't run away. I efun let him get within three feet of me. I hope the alien turns back into Eric cuz I miss snuggling wiv my brofurr.
The vishus deer is safe. I sleep on it efurry night and it hasn't attacked me. In fact it is me who duz the attacking. I like to sharpen my claws on it and put the bitey on it. Mum sez I shouldn't do that cuz it's furrs are coming out, but I got to let him know who's the boss.

#4 When Flynn kept hissing at me I wuz so sad I didn't know what to do. I kept telling him to sniff my butt but he just sed more bad werds to me. Then I had a branewave. If I slept on Flynn's vishus deer bed I would smell like him and he would snuggle wiv me. He wuzn't happy about me sleeping on his bed at furrst, but he didn't hiss at me. He went and slept on the Bean's bed.

I must haf smelled like him the next day cuz when we went furr a walk wiv mum, he came ofurr and smelled my breffs and he nefurr hissed.

When we got back indoors we ate some Stinky Goodness togevver. He efun ate out of my dish wiv me, but mum wuzn't kwik enuff wiv the flashy box to git us eeting out of the same bowl.
I'm glad we're furrends again cuz I love my brofurr. I'm a bit wurreed though cuz I haf to go back to the V E T on Monday furr a checkup. Mum sez she's going to put one of Flynn's smelly blankies in the PTU when I go so I come back smelling like him. I hope it werks.

Toby Tomcat chose the photo this week and asked for 27.06.07 as his birthday is on 27th June.
It was actually taken on the 28th but is the closest I have to his date.

I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

I started with Landscape at 70% then added Flow at 45%
Two bonus art this week. I was playing around with Deep Dream Generator. I don't know what effect this is because you tick the likeness you want. I chose thin style because some of the others are really weird.

I haven't found how to adjust it so I put it in Lunapic and added Scribble at 40% to tone it down.
Let me know in the comments which you prefer.

There is a puzzle of course.

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


  1. It's awful when you don't smell like you're supposed to, butt it was a happy ending!

  2. I've heard of kissin' cousins but not hissin' brofurs..glad everything worked out. Mum's pretty smart to put Flynn's blanket in the PTU. We might have to try that here with Bridget. - Tom xxx

  3. Fortunately, nobody here ever gets mad when one of us goes to the vet. That wasn't the case with Sparkle - she used to get vicious with Boodie! Somehow, with Binga, she wanted to... but knew better than to try.

  4. It's always a tought time going to the vet; the side-effects are almost as bad the visits. But everything worked out, and the boys were friends again.

  5. oooh we are happy that nothing can ruin your friendship, not even the vet...ha! real friendship between boys is a thing furever, right?

  6. We enjoyed the flashback boys.
    WE giggled at you hissing at the "strange Eric cat" MOL!!!!!
    Purrs,Georgia and Julie

  7. Eric that photo of you and Dad in the swing...too funny
    You see I'm a swing kinda gal BUT under no circumstances can the person sitting with me be in charge of the motion. For some reason I can get a wee bit dizzy maybe ditzy too. If I'm in control no problem.

    OMCs Milky-Way our first cat was fascinated with the
    toilet water too. We kept the lid down but when my Brother in Law can to visit he DID NOT. Thankfully we never had a mishap.
    Hugs Cecilia

  8. We're glad tings finally worked out and the hissing stopped. They were such good pals.

  14. What a wonderful Flashback of you Eric. You too Flynn. It sure can be trouble when we go to the V and some Introoder comes back in our place. Luckily the stink wears off and like magic we are back again. Erik we are amazed at how big a fellow you were and you are so big on Dads lap.

  16. Vet visits are no fun, but this made for a sweet flashback of the boys.

  17. You should really write a book about all of the boys' adventures! It would be great!

  18. What a great story! Thanks for sharing, Deborah

  19. I can't believe Flynn would hiss at his brofur. Thanks for the puzzle but our time was so bad compared to the other one that I deleted it.

  20. Eric, we are very happy that you decided not to sell Flynn - have to keep that mouse supply coming:)

    Thanks for all your kind words to welcome Misty home.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  21. Wow! What a cat adventure story ~ hope all calms down after the next vet visit ~ The digital altered photos are all great ~ my favorite is the 1st one ~

  22. Angel never allowed Chuck a pass when he returned from the vet's office...nor me either! She'd hiss at both of us for days...every...single...time.
    Thanks for the puzzle; I like the puzzle art the best.

  23. That was a fun flashback. We like the second one the best. It really shows off Eric and Flynn’s orangey goodness.

  24. Aww...we always love the flasbacks, sweet angels and we like that accent too..MOL. Your artwork is beautiful too. Happy Birthday to Toby Tomcat. That was an excellent choise ;) 😸Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend🐾😽💞

  25. We love the vibrancy in the second artwork! Great story and that was a terrific flashback!

  26. That was a rough time you went through! Your artwork looks like masterpieces!

  27. Well, we sure are happy all the smells got back to normal after a few days. What a close call, Eric and Flynn!

  28. First photo cracked me up =^x^= MOL
    I just know you guys are the same size as me ! lots of fluff tee..heh..heh

  29. Poor Eric had a tough time there. I am glad Flynn eventually realized he was his brother. Great photos. And thank you for the puzzle. XO

  30. Oh Boys. This was just before I got to be furriends with you I loved reading about everything. I never told the two of you but those hats the two of you are wearing are PURRFECT! I love looking at you both in them.

  31. Oh my, I have felt the same way about Kali when she was alive. Eventually, the vet stink wore off and she was her lovable self again.


  32. Oh, that awful vet smell. Until it wears off, there is always trouble.

  33. Wow, that is really old stuff! We are glad they got along better later...

  34. Yes, those vet smells are scary...
    at the last year of Minko's life, I used feliway, and sprayed it on all kinds of places where either cat might frequent...and it actually worked. Just minor hisses a= for a short time only.

    I like the puzzle art the best, too. Will try my brains at it later...

  35. Brother stuff. We bet your boys miss you like crazy - but we bet they'll have all kinds of new adventures to tell you about when you see them again!

  36. Wonderful photos of a happy kitty and his dad!

  37. WOW! Your artwork is amazing!

    That was a indeed a fun flashback!

  38. Cat brothers sometimes hiss at each other but will make up soon after and all is well.
