Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

The flashback this week comes from March 2008.

Looking for Mousies! 

*Flynn listens*

Eric: When you are out listening furr mousies you haf to look this way,

*Flynn keeps listening*

Eric: and you haf to look that way to make sure you don't miss them.
We did miss them though.

The random photo has been chosen by Timmy Tomcat who asked  8th October so this is from 8.10.10


Eric used to lie across the desk and Flynn was usually on the Peggy Blankie on the left of the monitor, or on the laptop case which was on the worktop slightly further to the left. Very often I would have to use my leg as a mouse mat so I didn't disturb them.


I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for the Caturday Art blog hop.

For Eric I started with Reds at 40%, then Lily at 25%.

For Flynn I used Flames at 40% then added Connections at 25%.

Sometimes the mousies were just too clever.

Those are beautiful pictures and art.

Bummer! You missed them even though you looked both ways?

Marv, Jo Jo, Komo, Cinnamon & Angel Nellie said...

Kozmo can't wait for spring! He did catch a mouse under the deck 2 days ago and wanted to bring it in the house! I am sure the boys were too much of gentlemen to ever do that! I love the mousie listening poses! The art is fabulous! And I can't wait to do the puzzles! Have a marvellously Happy Day!

I think about Angel's Eric and Flynn, when I'm outside in the yard at night, when it's quiet and I can hear noises from the gardens. Is it mice or insects, or leaves decaying? I don't know, but it's fun to be there to listen!
Off to play puzzles; thank you!

Deborah said...

Lovely story and photos and art! :) <3

Love the artwork!!!

You can't win everytime... Purrs

Kathe W. said...

Awww such sweet cats! And I have to appreciate your using your knee to balance the computer mouse so as not to disturb someone sleeping! Cheers!

Greg_1948 in_WA said...

I did not know mousies in the fields made a lot of noise.

Timmy Tomcat said...

You cant make a catch every time I guess. You did a fine effort thought I must say. Thanks so much for that photo. Yes we do many things to let our cats be comfortable while we are in some odd contortion Ha Ha

Homestead Prowlers said...

Very nice flash backs and we love your art. Can we ask if there is an app to make the art or how do you do that? Have a wonderful weekend!

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

I bet the mousies never stood a chance with you two!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

The boys manage to look very cute while hunting those mousies.

pilch92 said...

Flynn was the best mousie hunter ever. Thank you for the puzzles. XO

John Bellen said...

I thought after hunting in the fields, they had come back to look for computer-mice... But I'm sure Flynn would have caught something, anyway.

Katie Isabella said...

Boys, you were ace at any hunting you did! If those mousies were there, you'd found 'em. Ask Mommy for May 29. XXOO

Tama-Chan, Benny, Vidock, Violette, Ollie, Hotesse & Heloise said...

I do all of my mouse-hunting indoors, so it's fun to hear about outdoor techniques!

Purrs,
Genji

PS: I Caught a mouse a few days ago!

Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty said...

Great adventures and art!

Cathy Keisha said...

Don't tell me they let the mouses get away and couldn't even lay on the computer mousie.

meowmeowmans said...

Great flashback of Eric and Flynn. We thought they ALWAYS got the mousies. :)

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Marley, and Laz) said...

What great pictures of both of them. Both listening AND watching werk. Iza was a watcher. I'm a listener. ~ MARLEY

The J-Cats said...

We bet those days when mousies managed to put one over on you were furry rare.
We LOVE your pictures.

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

A kitty in front of a computer is a familiar site. MOL Too bad those mousies hid on the boys.

The Whiskeratti said...

He was a phenomenal hunter, wasn't he?

Fr. Tom Fishworthy said...

The yuletide lyric "do you hear what I hear?" definitely was inspired by cats listening for mousies! What's that?...*ears up*... xoxo

Cat and DOG Chat With Caren said...

looks like real mousies weren't the only ones they loved!! xoxo

Deb Nance at Readerbuzz said...

How much fun they are!

Herman and Dori said...

Dori: I may have hunted for mousies when I was a very little girl and lived with my pawrents in the woods before getting Got.
Herman: I definitely hunted for mousies when I got lost and had to survive before I got found. I don't remember being very good at it.

Adorapurr said...

I have never heard a mousie, I don't think. I was borned in Octopurr, and got rescued in January. Afraid my meowmory is gone from then. Hey! Maybe I was twaumatized... by a mousie!!!
