Friday Flashback and Caturday Art with cards update

 This is our card to you. If you haven't already received it by email please feel free to take it from here.

Merry Christmas!

The flashback this week comes from December 2008 and is called:
The Christmas Tree.

The other day we wanted to get our Chris Mouse tree up so mum said she would help us. Here I am with the middle section on the floor getting the branches nicely spread out.

I tasted it as well to make sure it was our tree and not an introoder tree. Then Eric came along and we checked the box was empty together. Yup, all seems in order. Nuffin left in here. Then I had to check the box handle worked properly. Next thing was to make sure it wuz in the proper purrzishun for hiding under. I wuz getting tired by then cuz I wuzn't getting much help furrom Eric or mum. I couldn't even have a rest in my Ham-Mick cuz someone had put all the shiny whapping balls on it. Phew! Finished at last. Next time I think I will leave it for mum to do.
Snail Mail cards are at the end of the post
All of the ecards can be seen on the Christmas Cards 2021 page.

Wonderful cards and the photos of cats in boxes are hysterical!

John Bellen said...

I thought Flynn was reaching to close the box lid on himself. What good memories. May you have a happy and safe Christmas.

Grimoirely said...

lovely cards and no boxes left unturned, weakness of many cats! very funny photo of the two in the box.

The Island Cats said...

Those boys put a lot of effort into that tree. :) All the cards are so nice. Thanks for posting ours.

pilch92 said...

That was a great flashback. I love how Flynn tasted the tree to make sure it wasn't an intruder. :) Thank you for the puzzle. I hope you both have a Merry Christmas! XO

Fr. Tom Fish said...

Love seeing everyone's cards and the effort to get the tree up just right! I don't know, we must be slowing down. We're curious about our tree, but haven't been playing with what's on it like during Christmases before. We just play with the presents underneath! Happy Christmas, friends!

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

We loved your Christmascard, sweet Angels๐Ÿ’— Your Christmas story is lovely, glad you inspected the tree first for introoders, you may never know where they hide themselves๐Ÿ˜ธ We finally took time to puzzle the puzzle. I'm best of last๐Ÿ˜นMerry Pawkisses for a Joyful Christmastime to all of you๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐ŸŽ…๐ŸŽ„✨

Zoolatry said...

It's a wonder the tree ever got put up! What fun photos from memory lane ... and a lovely card collection.
Happy Christmas friends.

Erin the Cat Princess said...

As we dont celebrate Christmas, I dont mind saying that I am hopeless when it comes to helping with trees, or decorations. Mrs H looked at your pictures and said that they exemplary images of an experienced tree puter-upper. Unlike me who mainly takes things down, MOL
Happy festive wishes to you all!
Thanks for the jigsaw too!

Little Miss Titch said...

I LOVE the shots of the boys in the tree box! Fabulishious and I am looking forward to doing the puzzles.
Santa said you’ve been good this year… So here's sending you lots of love this holiday season. Stay blessed and stay happy, always. Merry Christmas!

The J-Cats said...

We LOVE your Chrissymouse card.
And how hard the boys worked to make sure the Chrissymouse tree was just right!

Three Chatty Cats said...

What a wonderful flashback! Those boys sure were good helpers. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Katie Isabella said...

Happy Christmas belatedly. Love you boys from then till now.

Layla Morgan Wilde said...

Love all those cards. I got sick before I could mail all the snail mail cards. Next year hopefully xoxo

My Tata's Cottage said...

Your photo captures are the best. You had the best helpers. Mister KItty just like to lie under the tree and try to eat the branches. I am not sure what I can with him. But since he loves napping I am enjoying a bit of quiet time, He is like a toddler on a sugar high sometimes. The cards are terrific. Take care

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

You received such beautiful cards this year. And we see ours!
