Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

 This week's Friday Flashback comes from September 2007. Blogger was acting up that day and jumbled our photos and words around but I have straightened them up as best I can.


We haf been tagged by Henry Helton and Caesar and Princess furr a meme about our selves. We hope fings don't come out too jumbled cuz blogger is putting fings all ofurr the place.
Here's the rools:

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Write some facts about yourself, some random, some weird, some just plain fun.
3. Tag 7 kitties at the end of this post and link to them.
4. Let those 7 kitties know they've been tagged by leaving a comment at their blogs.The challenge is to keep it interesting without making other kitties think "too much information".
We haf done it between us so here goes. Oh and we know yoo will haf seen some of the pichurs befurr, but we thought they went best wiv the facts about us.

ERIC I just love sleeping on the compooter when mum tries to yoose it. I like hitting the keys cuz sometimes they make funny beeping noises. I don't fink mum likes it when they do that.

Flynn: I find sleeping on my back is the best way to sleep

Flynn: Mum sez I'm a tummy slut. I can nefurr haf too many tummy rubs.

We bofe like drinking out of the baff tap. Sometimes we drink furrom the hand basin, but the baff is deffernuttly the best. Drinking outdoors furrom the stream is efun better, but we can't always do that.

We bofe love Temtayshuns.
Eric: I like dry food the best, We haf Pro Plan Light furr brekfust.
Flynn: I like Stinky Goodness the best which we haf furr supper. We yooshully haf Gourmet or Sheba.

Eric: When I use the litterbox, mum sez she finks I am digging furr Australia. If I can find a big pit that's efun better.
Flynn: When I need the litterbox I leap in, haf a kwik scrape, squat and leap out again, then I run off at 100 miles an hour.

Flynn: All right I admit it, I'm a nip head. I can't help it, I just am. When mum wuz refilling my carrot she left the nip on the floor, and I wuz in it befurr she could blink.

When the Beans brought back the empty vishus deer we wuz a bit skeered of it cuz we thought it might eat us. We love it now cuz it's reely warm and snuggly. We haf a chew on it now and again and stick our claws in it so it duzn't git any ideers about attacking us.

Eric: I love water, I always have. I will paddle in puddles or in the stream. Sometimes I sit on the horse drinking trough and let my tail float in the water. I like to git in the baff wiv the Beans too.
Sometimes when it has been raining, I sit right down in a puddle and get my trousers wet. Flynn likes water too but not as much as me. When we were little and we had our Hooha hectomies, the nurse brought us out to our Beans and told them I wuz acting strange cuz I wuz sitting in my water bowl.Mum sez,No that's ok that's normal furr Eric.

I wait furr the Beans to go to bed, then I like to sit on their heads. They don't like it much so I haf to sleep on the pillow.

Flynn: Mum sez I must haf OCD but I don't know what that means.
I like to keep my tummy clean. I wash it a squillion times a day. I'm sure that as soon as I clean it anuvver bit of dirt gits there so I haf to clean it again. I haf washed some of my furrs right away and now I haf got a pink patch.

I am joining Athena the Cat Goddess for Caturday Art.

  1. Love learning more about you interesting boys. You're quite the characters, and I mean that as complimentary! Mom's catwork is really nice. Hope Mom and Dad are doing well. Until next time...Jean

  2. Those were fun, fun, fun and the art is so pretty!

  3. I smiled through this whole post. What a couple of characters the boys were. Eric letting his tail float in the water...

  4. AYLA: I miss the old days when there were memes an awardies etc. We still keep ours on the blog.

    From all of us: Those were great pictures. Iza used to lay on her back ta invite tummy rubs too. The rest of us arent so much, but we love our brushies. Marley nearly passes out from happiness with the wire one, (you could almost re-fur a whole cat with what TBT gets off him) but we thinner-furred ones like the Zoom Groom better.

  5. we are with flynn the back is the place to sleep ;O))

  6. What a fun flashback tummy slut made me laugh out loud LOL, nice art too :-)

    Have a flashbacktastic weekend 👍

  7. We loved this post, laughed at your litter box habits, the water (eek!), etc. :-)

    Flynn: Angel Chumley used to sleep on his back as well, though no one else has done so that the biped has seen. But Derry loves his tummy rubs too!

  8. What pawsome memories! I liked reading about you as I was not around
    when you two were blogging.
    This post made mum and I laff too !!
    Purrs, Julie

  9. Aww, you two Angel Boys are lovely and silly!
    Lovely art; I'll puzzle your puzzles soon, thank you.

  10. Tummy slut? Bwahahahahahaha. I love hearing about your angels.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug, Jackie. ♥

  11. Oh dear friends good to read...(kinda) that blogger has always been a bit of a problem. Seems to act up lots.
    I did enjoy this in spite of blogger.
    Hugs and Happy Feline Friday

  12. such wonderful and memorable photos! Thanks for sharing them with us!

  13. Very enjoyable and enlightening post but we don't have time to play.

  14. Lol. What is it with cats and water? Mine don't like it when it gets on them, but they love to drink it from strange sources and play in it. :)

  15. Eric, Mudpie sleeps on my pillow the same way! MOL on pottying in the pit too!

  16. Goodness, that's a lot of stuff to learn about you two wonderful boys!

  17. Flynn looks just like Frodo when he sleeps on his back! Adorable!

  18. These are such precious photos!

  19. What an extra special and lovely post!

    We agree about tummy rubs! We all love them.

    The Chans

  20. Boys, I missed this back when you first posted it. These photos and the facts you shared with us about those photos made Mommy's and my day, Erich and Flynn's. And seeing you on your Dad's head..or next to it made me turn my whiskers up because that is what I love to do with om. For some reason, she doesn't like it though the warmth and purring and soft furs are a pleasure...the weight of my whole self isn't. XXX

  21. We always learn even more about you than before! So many things you both did and you are so funny. Mom snorted laffin about the vishus deer story. You crack us up. "so it duzn't git any ideers about attacking us". Lololol!

  22. What a great flashback post full of wonderful photos. I love the snuggle on on the pillow with the bean.

  23. Nice to learn more about your sweet angels. I didn't know Eric liked the water so much. They remind me so much of my angel Sammy, the tummy rubs, sleeping on your head and even their colors. Thank you for the puzzles. XO

  24. My, you certainly go into details about some very private kitty moments. Eric and Flynn sure were different in their preferences for outdoor pottying. Love the pic of Eric on the computer desk with his picture on the monitor behind him. I like the warm tones and fine detail in this one. Flynn, on the other paw, looks like a completely different kitty in those soft, grey tones. Always up for a tummy rub, though. Cute.

  25. Nice art! And if I can fins some time, I'll work at the puzzles.

    You kitties were always up to or into something! Love all these fine memories:)

  26. Loved all the interesting facts about the boys!

  27. That's some great art, and we love all those sweet memories, especially the one of Eric sleeping on Dad Ivor's head. :)

  28. Some of us do some of the same things. Calista Jo is a constant belly licker and has removed most of the hair from there. Astrid is the computer sitter. Cooper and Audrey love sleeping on their backs. Misty May has to sleep on Mom's head or next to her face on the pillow. Guess we cats have lots in common. Really enjoyed this post, and Mom is looking forward to doing the puzzles. She also says, "thanks," for the Christmas cactus puzzle. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer, Kizmet, Audrey & Raleigh

  29. They are so cute. I love how they can nap anywhere.

  30. All of these pictures are adorable.
    We also love tummy rubs - and sitting/sleeping on Mummy's head or at any rate, on the pillow next to her head.

  31. I'm so much like Flynn except I prefer kibble. Love all the pics and reading all the facts.

  32. Thank yoo so much for sharing wonderpurr sekrets about the boys. I love hearing about them. Love, Dori

  33. I absolutely loved tripping down Meowmory Lane in this post, seeing everything yoo boys loved doing. I especially loved that Eric enjoyed sitting in water. If yoo have a pikchure, I'd enjoy seeing it. Love, Dori
