Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 The flashback this week comes from April 2008 and is called:

Sofa Hog.


Eric: Flynn are you sure you've got enough room there? Is there any chance you could stop snoring too, I'm trying to get some sleep.

Hmpphhh duzn't look like he's going to take any notice. I'll just haf to try and ignore him and hope he duzn't stretch out any longer.


The random photo this week has been chosen by Meowmeowmans who asked for 20th April 2012. I had two on that date that go together so have used both.

The boys had three cat trees, a small one that was kept by a different window, and a medium and bigger one that had their favourite view. 

This was the older medium one which was too small for Eric, but was his favourite.

Flynn always preferred the biggest.

I have used both these photos for Caturday Art with Athena, the Cat Goddess.



For Eric I started with Smoke at 50%, then added Fairy at 30%.


For Flynn I used Flow at 40%, then added Frost at 25%.

Nobody likes a sofa hog, or a bed hog, either. Budge up, would you? That's what i say.

Love the cat tree poses.

Angel Eric was doing a good double-dangle!

It's strange how cats can be curled into tiny balls one time then stretched to fill half a room the next. Whatever strikes their fancy at the moment, I guess - like it did with Flynn.

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

Eric and Flynn no matter the chore you two always had each other's back giving each chore 200% attention.
2008 was new to me. Angel Madi and I started blogging in June 2009.

I'm echoing John's comment as it fascinates me to watch June go from the tiny little ball to the long skinny won't fit in the chair cat! We love the way your colorized the cat tree art today, it's very dramatic!

Both art pieces turned out beautifully. The couch photos cracked us up. Cooper Murphy is just like Flynn...he takes up as much room as possible, and is always kicking Mom.

Cats can stretch out something huge for sure. Cute and I love the cat tree ones. Eric was a great dangler.

Very sweet flashback. Flynn reminds me of my Sammy with the stretching out and snoring- and his colorings too. Thank you for the puzzles. XO

MOL! Another 'Brother Snoring' story! Too funny!

That belly shot of Flynn had Nelly swooning! And Eric looks so cuddly! She says their bellies are still magnificent! We LOVE the shots of the boys on their trees too!

Always interesting cats always seem to want to do the same thing together at the same times.

Sofa hog, LOL!!
Those are beautiful art renditions,and thanks for the puzzles!!

Summer said...

It takes a lot of room to relax! Just sayin'.

Karen C. said...

It's amazing how much space a stretched out kitty can take up!
We really love the artistic editing. We've never tried that but will certainly look into doing it.

Kea said...

We laughed at Flynn's stretched-out sleeping pose. It's amazing to the biped how such a small Being can take up so much room! :-D

Cathy Keisha said...

Broffurs! They never leave you room. Beautiful art! Eric's fave is the same colour as my Tree of Pain.

Deborah said...

Those photos are just so precious! :) <3

My cats can relate to the sofa issue! MOL!

Unknown said...

What lovely cat poles and condos. The small one is well used....obviously the smells will drive a kitty wild. Flynn is a cat after my own heart. The more room we take up the better. Could we see a photo of Jan29 2005 please.

This gave us a giggle! I can relate to the snoring, because Lexy snores. But don't tell her I told you. - Lola

The Whiskeratti said...

Some people are just kinda rude nap partners. Look at that boy taking all that space!

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

I always love to hang out with you, sweet Angels😹Pawkisses for a Happy Tuesday🐾😽💞

Draping a leg over the edges is OK sometimes, but lots of space is better!

Pam said...

HAHA....never had one of my cats snore but my special dog who past over a yr ago was a pro at snoring...

Timmy Tomcat said...
