Flynn's Plaque

Ivor made a plaque for Flynn the same as he had done for Eric. We also bought a deep orange rose which is planted over him.

Our boys together for eternity.

The wisteria which he loved to lie under in the mornings is blooming.

I am still choosing the photos for Flynn's tribute. There are so many to look through, but I will post it when it is finished.

Flynn Forever Loved. 08.04.2000 - 01.05.2017

Thank you Ann for the beautiful graphic for our boy.

We had to help our dearest little man to The Bridge tonight.

Goodnight our darling boy. Love you forever, Mum, Dad and Eric xxx
Re-united again.

Sunday Selfies.

It's Sunday again so that means I have to try and wake up for my selfie.

I'm finding it difficult to open my eyes.

That's a bit better but not much.

I think that is as good as I'll get.

Visit the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head to see more selfies.

Eric's Day Flashback - Plant Pots.

This week the flashback comes from March 2011 and was originally called:

Back in the Old Routine.
Now the sunnier weather is here we have started going out in our plant pots again.

Did you want something mum?

That's right! Now you have disturbed us with the flashy box you will go off again without so much as an apology.

A Surprise in the Post.

The postman brought a package for my mum which said it was from Basil and the Hoard. She was very surprised because she wasn't expecting anything.

When she opened it the card said that the Trout Towne Tabbies had won it but had asked for it to be sent to me and my mum to cheer us both up.
There was a lovely charity calendar with Basil and Moet the Blind Cat on the front page. Every page is beautiful.

There was a present for me too which is this lovely pink hedgehog from their Etsy store Kit Knit Cos Play.

Oh hello, what's this?

Where did he come from?

*sniff sniff* You smell good.

You taste pretty good too.

Yes, very good!

I'm glad you aren't prickly like the other hedgehogs. Your prickles are nice and soft to chew on.

I've got nice pink tissue that we can lay on together and have a little snooze.

Thank you basil and Tabbies.

Sunday Selfie.

Since I have been on my new pills I am feeling quite a lot better and taking interest in life again. The best thing is that I am able to take them with no apparent ill effects. Those of you who have followed me for some time know that I developed an intolerance to most medication after being given Convenia, so we are very grateful that I can take my new pills.

I am still spending a lot of time on the bed because I need to try and get back my strength and some of the weight I lost, but I am going outdoors a lot more again as well.

I told my mum that I could do my selfie on my own this week.

Eric's Day Flashback - Tummy Time!

Before we get to the flashback I want to say that this is our 2,501st post. If Brian hadn't said earlier in the week that it was their 3,000th post we would have missed it altogether. Our 2,500th was the Sunday Selfie.

This week the flashback comes from March 2011 and was one for Eric's

Tummy Tuesday.

We have had nearly a week of sunny weather so I like to lie on the shelf of our outdoor run and catch the rays. The run is only used for holidays but is left on the lawn the rest of the time so we can sunbathe on the shelf if we want to. It's a good place to show off my tummy.

Dad came over and rubbed his head against me. I think he is trying to make me smell like him.

Now I will have to have a bath and get my smell right again.

Quick wash of the legs and that should do it.

Finished! Don't do that again dad, it's me who is supposed to put my smell on you, not the other way round.

Happy Easter, Sunday Selfie and an update.

Happy Easter to all of my friends.

I haven't taken any selfies lately as I have been ill again. On Wednesday my mum and dad thought they would have to help me to the Bridge.
I haven't been eating and just lying around looking very miserable. I had just about given up, but my mum and dad know I am a fighter and can make a miraculous turnaround.
I saw my vet and he gave me a shot and gave my mum one to give me 24 hours later.
He said that if there was an improvement I could have it in pill form but they have to watch carefully because of my intolerance to most medication.

I have had the pills for 2 days now and apart from being a bit loose, (not diarrhoea) I don't seem to be having any ill effects from them.
I have started to eat again, not as much as I should but much better than I was. I feel better as well and am more alert. We are hoping the pills continue to work as we have almost run out of options if they don't.

My mum asked me if I wanted to do a selfie today and I said I would if she joined me, so she did.
