Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

Before the flashback I want to say a big thank you to Timmy Tomcat and family and their dad Pete.
A few days ago they had a competition and I was first with the right answers. The package arrived on Thursday, just in time for me to add it to today's scheduled post.

There is a book, Frizzy Izzy Goes Home. It is a publication from the Helen Woodward Animal Center and was created for Remember Me Thursday. It is a lovely book with the sweetest illustrations.
Also there is a calendar supporting Tiger Haven which sounds like a marvellous rescue for these beautiful big cats. There is also the cutest little coin purse and two cards. Thank you dad Pete and all the family.

This flashback comes from August 2006. I checked my records and it doesn't look like I have posted it since the original, probably because the words and photos were all over the place and it wouldn't copy and paste. Hopefully I can get it looking better now. The photos are from April 2000 when the boys first came to their forever home. The photos are non digital and scanned, so not great quality but very precious to us.

Baby Boys.
Here are some baby pichers of us. The picher where we are cuddled up by the books was the furrst day we came to our furrever home. The door was opened back against them, and the beans couldn't find us. They were getting in a panic, an we was fast asleep.In the picher of us playing in the wine rack, mum says Eric's head wouldn't effun fit in there now. The cheek of it!!(Don't know where the rest of that picher went. Fink blogger mustn't haf liked it.) An the picher wiv the slippers, that was our most favourite fing to play wiv. Mum had to get herself new slippers cos we nearly ate them up. An in the uvver picher we was all played out. 





The random photo this week is from the Trout Towne Tabbies who chose 23.10.10. We are usually on a cruise for our anniversary on that date, but in 2010 we went a bit later.
I had just won a Dewey book in a giveaway and both boys wanted to read it.



I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art and using the photo of the boys tired out on the bed.


I started with Beauty at 40% then added Scribble at 20%.

K-I-T-T-E-N P-I-C-T-U-R-E-S!!!!!!!!!!!!! [super loud squeal] It's funny, I know the boys so well, I don't even need to know the physical differences - I can tell based on their positioning and the way they're laying who is who. We love these boys to pieces.

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

Ah! Bless!xx
I've nearly worn the mouse out,
scrowling up and down..
Never seen the boys as kittens..
HeHe! Bet they were into everything,
as all kittens are..
And it's a good job we humans have two
feet..cos with two kittens there's a
slipper for each of them..Lovely! :0)

Well done on the win! And the pictures come at the right time for me, with my couple of examples of kittenhood living with me. I hope Oleo and Bisto grow up to be even half the cats Eric and Flynn were - and have as loving a home.

Aww, those baby pictures are so adorable. Dad says he'll always wish we had some of me like he did with his old Orbit, but they didn't know me back when I was a tot a hundred years ago. As always, thank you for sharing your sweet flashbacks.
