Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 This week Eric gets a post to himself. It is from January 2007 and is called:

Eric the Afflete!



Mum an Flynn bofe say all I do is lay around or eat. Well heers the proof dat sumtimes I am furry lively. This is my ratty an I am getting reddy to pounce on him.


Heer I go, I'll give him what for.


This is me wiv a mousie dat Flynn caught furr me.


I wuz having a good game wiv it, an I can be reely speedy sumtimes.


See I wuz that fast that mum couldn't keep up wiv me an it looks like she chopped my hed off. Don't worry Rosie, my hed is still theer reely!


I wuz that tired out after dat I had to lie on the floor wiv my fluffcat. See we are the same culler. I put the bitey on fluffcat yooshully, but I wuz just too tired in this pichur.

And so Flynn isn't left out, a one photo Tummy Tuesday post from November 2006.


Mum sez I am getting a little podgy tummy, but I fink it is just the way I am sitting.


I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

For Eric I used Abstract at 45%, then added Scribble at 25%.

For Flynn it was Psychedelic at 55%, then Surreal at 50%.

Like all highly intelligent creatures, Eric saw no sense in activity when there wasn't a point. But when Ratty needed tackling, or a mouse needed playing with, Eric was a true action-cat.

NatureFootstep said...

Yvonne said...

These are great! I love your artwork, too!

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

You sure showed the rodent a thing or two, Eric!

That is a wonderful tummy you have, Flynn!

Pam and Teddy said...

Ahhhh - Eric the Fearless! Love the photo of you with your fluffcat - you're almost TWINS!!! Flynn doesn't look HALF as podgy as I do....LOL

Hugs, Teddy

Zoolatry said...

You and Fluff Cat are so cute together and we specially like the way Mom did the artwork of the two of you ... Flynn got a bit sneaky, adding his own photo to "your" post today now didn't he, but it is a funny one!

CCL Wendy said...

Who knew that Eric was so athletic! I guess when it comes to rats and meeses, he's all over it. He can even fly -- Supurrcat!
And the tummy pic of Flynn is so adorable, too.

I love the effects you created for each of them in your art. They both intensify the photos, and are interesting visually.

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...
