Friday Flashback and Caturday Art.

This week the main flashback is Flynn, but don't worry, Eric gets a one photo post at the end. They both come from November 2009.

Nip Overload.

Mum gave me some nip on my cat tree. (The tree Eric can't get his fat butt on.)
First of all I like to scrape it up a bit to release the heavenly smell.

Then I rub my head in it.

A bit more head rubbing just for good measure.

I get so excited that I put the bitey on the curtain.

It's a good idea to use your paw to make sure you've got the nip rubbed into your face extra good.

Make sure you hold on to your cat tree though. You don't want to fall off backwards and get laughed at.

Mum took this video of me, but I got so excited that I stuck my sharp claw in her hand. You can hear her say ouch. Haha!

And a Wordless Wednesday from Eric the pillow hog.

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

For Eric (and dad) I used Sunshine at 60% , then added Surreal at 40%.

For Flynn I started with Emboss at 100%, then added Abstract at 50%.

For the AI Art this week I entered Cat in a field and this was the best of the bunch.

  1. That was some fun NipFest and we enjoyed the video too! Lovely art!!!

  2. Oh, the nip. We love it here, too.

    Thank you for joining Feline Friday!

  3. Good Heavens, Flynn was a real nip-head. I'll bet he needed a pillow like Eric's afterward...

  4. wow to have nip on a tree can be special... fortunately cats land on their legs and not like humans who land on their butt... like our mama who had nip in a tree house 87 moons ago...

  5. LOL Loved this and the narration all made me smile especially the video ha :-)

    The cat art is brilliant ๐Ÿ‘

    Have a catniptastic weekend ๐Ÿ‘

  6. That's one tuckered out looking Eric. And as far as Flynn goes, he has it paws down on the catnip.

  7. HaHa! I'm surprised Flynn managed to stay
    on top that stand, without falling off...
    And he went on about Eric's butt...HeHe!
    Bless...! :O)xx

  8. That was quite the nipfest, made me laugh! Flynn would have needed Eric to push over and share the pillow after that, and never mind their dad! :-D

  9. Gee got a little over stimulated there ;) MOL!!!
    I see Eric was a pillow hog,er,cat!!
    Purrs, Julie

  10. Nip overload. MOL MOL MOL
    I love all your photos and Caturday art and AI
    Happy Feline Friday
    Hugs Cecilia

  11. There's just something about the lack of control that happens when a cat meets up with a pile of nip! Angel Sammy was more of a nip-head than Teddy. Teddy loves the outside catmint plant - will lie in the middle of it and enjoy the aroma.....SOMETIMES he's like that with catnip. Your "totally photographable" boys were more like professional models...

    Hugs, Pam and Teddy too

  12. Aww, so cute to see Flynn in action!

  13. When you're high on nip, anything can happen!

  14. Not only did I hear you say "ouch" and "let go" MOL (with your sweet voice!), I heard Flynn purring up a storm! Loved this! xoxo

  15. Cute photos and I love the video= it looks like Flynn was playing peek a boo with the curtain. :) Thank you for the beautiful puzzles. XO

  16. Nip affects us like that too. Though we just go off crazy do THOE and not so clawy. Ayla and Marley love it. Laz is not quite sure about it. Lori doesn't react. Yet.

  17. Goodness, that was some serious purring on Flynn's part! We enjoyed all the photos and the lovely art.

  18. What splendidly silly stills of Angel Flynn and his 'nip antics! All of the artwork is most excellent this week, and Angel Eric the Pillow Hog is a hoot!!

  19. MOL for Your Nip Overload, Angel Flynn =^x^=
    It's unique skill to get high on the post... HA HA HA
    Miss you my friend

  20. Nip time is the best. Video wouldn't play for me

  21. Your pictures of Flynn and the video of his catnip-induced hi-jinks were so entertaining! And Eric taking up half the width of the bed is still a statement of how his large presence affected you on a daily basis.

    The art is magnificent, as usual. You always come up with pieces that are suitable for framing. The colours are so warm and inviting.

    Your AI this weeks reminds me a lot of my Dante, as well. It makes me wonder if he and your boys are having a great old time together on the Bridge.

  22. Flynn sure did love that nip! MOL!

    And Eric obviously claimed those pillows for himself. Hope you found some of your own. :)

  23. Loved the video. It was fun watching Flynn get high from the nip!

  24. What a fun post! You boys never fail to entertain, whether intentional or not. Mom's catwork is very pretty. Hope Mom and Dad are both doing well. Until next time...Jean

  25. Happy Father's Day! Truly gorgeous art today guys and the AI image is so cute, we bought an AI art app on Friday, and the P.A. loves it! MOL
    We hope your Sunday is epically epic!

  26. Lovely art. And the video was so cute. What a loud purr Flynn had!

  27. Lol. It's a process with the catnip. :-)

  28. Frodo has definitely been on the wrong side of a nip overload!

  29. What a treat to see a video of Flynn!

  30. To think I've been using catnip wrong all these years. Excellent tips from the master! Love, Dori
