Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 Eric playing, November 2008

Flynn says I am too lazy and don't play, well here is the proof that I do.

There was a branch from one of mum's shrubs hanging out, and it was saying to me,'Play with me,' so I did.
Flynn just watched.
Sometimes it is good to just play on your own.


And a very short post from Flynn, also November 2008.

My nippy carrot is my most favourite toy in the world and I like playing with it in my Ham-Mick the best of all. I put the noospaper there. You can't see the rest, but I put them all over the floor.

I was playing Peek a Boo with it unner the Ham-Mick.
There was originally a video with this post, but like most of the videos on our original blog it has disappeared. It was loaded through blogger not You Tube and I think when Blogger changed is when all the videos disappeared.

The random photo this week was requested by Meowmeowmans who asked for 17.12.11, so exactly 10 years ago.
It was when they received their Secret Paws package and were annoyed it wasn't opened immediately.

I am joining Athena, the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

I kept it simple this week with Polygons at 70%


For this one I used an old favourite that I haven't used for some time, Landscape at 75%

That was some pretty fun playing and some darn pretty art too.

Your Angel boyz's ringed tailios remind me of The PO'M's raccoon-like tailio.
Wonderful art, and I'm off to play the jigsaw puzzles; they are so much fun!😺

Scooby enjoys a catnip carrot as well to play with on his own.

You boys did know how to have a good time with toys, noospaper, or whatever else you found.

Summer said...

I love seeing the boys being playful.

Lone Star Cats said...

Luv seeing the pics of them playing.

Eric sure gave that shrub branch a workout! And we laughed at the way Flynn 'attacked' the carrot on the hammock when he was playing peekaboo with it.

Thanks for the puzzles!

easyweimaraner said...

we agree... sometimes is playing alone a good thing... before a hooligan comes and eats your toy hehe

Mickey's Musings said...

Fun to play with a branch - those long ones wiggle around and tease us in the wind! Looks like you guys were not happy when that Secret Paws package just SAT THERE and wasn't opened up! Love the LANDSCAPE effect - the photos look GREAT.

Hugs, Teddy and Mom Pam too

Kitties play when they want to and nap the rest of the time. Oh wait, there's food and treat time too. Your babies were most adorable.

Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

Mrs H says the best toys are the ones we make ourselves, or the ones that are free. If it contains nip or treats then THAT is the best toy for me, MOL

Love to see you guys having fun. Shame the video disappeared. Lovely art!

John Bellen said...

I remember Flynn's nippy carrot! Ha! It's good to see the boys enjoying themselves. What good lives they lived.

The Indulged Furries said...

So much fun, especially outside. I can picture our kittens playing under a hammick. It's unfortunate your video disappeared from blogger but the photos tell the story of fun times at your house.

meowmeowmans said...

We really enjoyed these flashbacks. Branches and nippy carrots are pawsome, for sure.

And hooray for that picture for the day I selected! We totally understand ... it's hard to wait to open the presents. :)

pilch92 said...

Cute flashback photos. My Angel Millie loved his carrot too. Thank you for the puzzles. XO

The J-Cats said...

We love all the photos, and the art too.

That looked like some fun carrot-paper-hammock time!

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

We really love reading your posts about the boys. It feels like we're really getting to know who they were.

Momma Kat and Her Bear Cat said...

Eric, we bet you bent that shrub branch to your will!
