and we sit in the grass and listen...............
we check under the broken slabs. They like to build their nests under there.
We listen in the grass again...................
Yep, sounds like something here.
Then when we have finished, we go and sit in our tree and watch what is going on.
Eric: Trouble is, even when we catch a mousie, mum takes it away furrom me. Not fair!

We received the 'Arte Y Pico' award furrom Chica and Pumuckl.
"The 'Arte y Pico' award was created and to be given to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and their talents, whether it be writing, artwork in all media's. When you receive this award it is considered a 'special honor'. Once you have received this award, you are to pass it on to at least 5 others." Thank you furr giving us this lovely award.
We would like to pass it on to:
Zoolatry for their beautiful creative graphics.
Mosaic Cats for the lovely mosaics that their mum creates.
Daisy for her wonderful Sunday comics.
Karen Jo for visiting all the kitties and learning about them to write limericks for everyone.
Miss Peach for all her beautiful photos and interesting writings.
We also received the "You Make My Day Award" furrom Angus Mhor and MontyQ
Eric: Flynn said I can take this one. Thank you both furr the award. I spose I'd better tell efurrycat that they both gave us the award cuz I can poop again. Yep that made my day too.
We have to pass the award on to other kitties who inspire similar sentiments in our hearts. There were so many of you who checked in regularly to see how I wuz doing, and we are all grateful for it, and you all made my day.
A few days into my illness, the Beans were really worried cuz I wuz going downhill fast and they wuz afraid I wuzn't going to pull through it. It's okay though. This Mancat had no intentions of giving up.
Right, who to pass it on to.
Skeezix: Well if you were threatened with pikchurs of his sqwerts if you didn't poop, wouldn't you make every effort to get one out?
The Tower Hill Mob. We know you very rarely post now, but you still made the time to visit and find out how I was doing. Thank you.
The Taylor Catssss. Well Auntie Deb really, furr her good help and advice.
I hope it is all right to do this. The last cat I would like to pass it on to is to Storm posthumously. Although she was tired and weary of life and waiting to go to the Rainbow Bridge, she still found time to come to our blog and offer our Beans words of comfort and encouragement. That truly made our day and we will never forget that kindness.

This is my favourite tree. When we go furr walks with mum, we usually come back here and sit furr a while under the shade. I like to climb it, sometimes right to the top and out onto the small branches, much further than I have here. Mum sez, "Oh Flynnie, be careful, you could fall or the branch might break and you'll hurt yourself." Furr goodness sake mum, stop worrying, I'm a cat, this is what I do. Eric was feeling better and climbed a little way up to meet me. He's not very good in trees. He's all right at getting up, and when he's up there's not a problem. When he comes down, mum sez he's more like a camel. Once she had to go a little way up, (she's no good at climbing trees either) and stretch her arm up to a branch furr him to jump down on and then he jumped off her back. He thinks she's a kitty ladder, hehe.

Our Beans are going on their Holly Days in a week's time, but they wuz going to cancel it to stay home with me. I've told them it's okay they can go now. It's a crooze around the British Isles so they said if I get sick again, it will be easy furr them to get back home quick. I think they said they are going to phone me efurry day so they must be going to leave a phone furr us. That means we will be able to phone all our furrends too. Hehe they'll haf a huge phone bill!!
The new router should be here by Thursday. Mum said she hopes so cuz this post has taken over an hour and five disconnekshuns to do it. Fank goodness we can save it as we go. She has been saving after efurry sentence so I could do a post.
Right mum. I think it's time you took us furr a walk now ,don't you?
Sunday, June 22, 2008
I am feeling much better now, I am pooping every day, and my appytite is nearly back to normal. I am sleeping more the yooshull, but mum sez that is just to get my strength back. I am going furr short walks and mum sez I look all bright eyed again. Mum is keeping turning on the compooter efurry day to see if we can get a connekshun, and if we do, I'll post when I can. The new router should arrive by Thursday, so hopefully we'll be back to normal then. We can't visit any blogs cuz the connekshun duzn't last long enuff. Gree and Othello, if you read this, we're sorry we had to miss your wedding. We really wanted to be there.
Skeezix fanks furr deddykating your TT13 to me and my (non) poops.
See you all soon.

Good News and Bad News
Now the bad noos. We lost our innernets connection yesterday. Mum's been on the phone to AOL and got mad with them after getting nowhere after an hour. She said she wanted a MAC code so she could go with another ISP, then they told her they could send her a free wireless router to replace her modem, and they are going to reduce her monthly fee furrom $36 to $26, so she said she would give it a try. The router won't arrive furr 5-7 days, so we will probably be offline furr a week. She has taken me to her furrends so I could use her compooter to let all my furrends know what's happening.
Thank you efurrybuddy furr all your purrs and good wishes, they certainly seem to be working.
Me and Flynn will be back as soon as we can.

Apart from one hairball, I have had no yakking for three days!
I don't know about Eric being on Valleyum, all this looking after him is making ME tired. Maybe me and mum and dad need some valleyum as well so we can sleep.
Sunday, June 15, 2008
I have just got back furrom the VET. This time I saw the Boss Man cuz the other VET wuz a locum cuz two of the VETs were getting married.
He said I should be pooping more, but he wuz glad I hadn't yakked furr two days. I did yak this morning though and it wuz a HAIRBALL!!! He said I don't haf to get any more of the evil meddysin, but I haf to try really hard to eat. He gave mum some special Stinky Goodness furr me to try and eat. I will haf to be shut in on my own so Flynn duzn't try and eat it. He stabbed me wiv something called Valleyum and said it gives kitties an appytite. Mum said she finks she needs the valleyum but not furr her appytite.
He said something has stopped my interestings furrom working properly. It might be something I ate. Mum told him I had four mousies in two days just before I got sick. He said one of them might have been a sick mouse that made me pawly.
Mum has to ring him in two days to let him know how I am doing. I hope I am getting better now cuz I don't want to go back. He said I wuz a very good boy cuz I just lay still while he poked and prodded me. I only had to be held when he stabbed me.
I'm shouting it as loud as I can:
I'VE HAD A POOP !!!!!!!!!
With the risk of TMI , my pooper worked. It wuz only Bun sized poops, but when you haven't been furr two weeks, anyfing is welcome. That means no more enemies or having my insides washed out. Now I need to start eating properly.
Fanks every buddy furr purring furr poops.
Labels: Eric had a poop
Easy on Sunday
I can see the Greenhouse furrom here too, so if Eric is napping in his plant pot, I can keep an eye on him. He had a better day yesterday, no yakking. He hasn't yakked so far today either.The Beans got him some babybean food yesterday, pureed chick-hen and rice and pureed chick-hen, pumpkin and carrot. He is eating small amounts of food, maybe a small dessert spoonful. He will eat that three or four times a day. It's not much but at least he is getting nourishment. He's still not pooping but that maybe cuz there's not enuff to poop out since he had his insides power washed. He must be feeling a bit better cuz he played Thundering Herds of Elephants on his own furr about two minutes this morning. He tired himself out though and has slept ever since. He's going back to see the V E T tomorrow morning and he hopes he duzn't give him any more of the icky meddysin. He sez Auntie Biotik's syrup isn't too bad, but the other meddysin is worse than evil. He'll let efurry one know how he gets on. Now I haf to go back to my napping.

Yesterday wuz a bad day furr me. The day befurr wuz yak free and mum thought I wuz on the mend. Yesterday around 4am I yakked bile, then I kept yakking it and it made me feel terrible. I didn't want to eat or drink anything, I didn't know what I wanted. I'd lie down furr a few minutes, then I'd get up again. I kept wandering aimlessly and my eyes looked dull and started to look a bit sunken. Mum and dad wuz really worried and mum rang the VET. He said that I would be feeling awful but the meddysin needed time to work. She told him I had yakked my meddysin up but he said give it a bit longer and bring me back to him on Monday as arranged. She was going to take me back this morning if I wuz no better though. I started to feel a bit better yesterday afternoon and I kept down last night's and this morning's meddysin. I ate a little bit of fish last night and drank plenty of water. Mum offered me chick-hen soup, but I didn't like it. This morning dad went and bought me some Babybean food. It looked like what I've been yakking up but it tasted okay. I only ate 1 spoonful but mum said that was all right cuz I could have some more later. I'm keeping my paws crossed that I can have a yak free day cuz I want to go to Gree and Othello's wedding shower with Flynn.
Flynn is being better with me. Yesterday evening I went in my plantpot to sleep and he got in his plantpot which is right next to mine, and he didn't hiss at me. He got on the Beans bed in the night when I was already there as well so maybe he likes me again.
He said he duzn't mind me being a blog hog this time, so maybe I'll tell him he can post tomorrow.

Furry Fighter Friday
You are right, you have won. You fought two brave battles against your cancer, and in the end it was you who decided your time had come for you to go to the Bridge.
We love you and will miss you. We will never forget you.
Have a safe and peaceful journey to the Bridge dear Stormie.

The Beans were worried when I yakked my meddysin up last night, so this morning they gave it to me early and wouldn't feed me. I wuz starving and I kept saying to mum "FEED ME, FEED ME!! Then I smelled my favourite fish being cooked. An hour after my meddysin, she gave me a VERY small feed. I asked her how she thought a Mancat would get better if he wuzn't getting enough food. She said "Don't worry Hunky Monkey, (that's one of the silly names she calls me) you can have some more in three hours." She told me it would be better furr me to have small amounts at regular intervals. That's okay as long as she duzn't furrget one of my meals.
I have had my fish twice today now and no yakking. We are all hoping I can get through the rest of the day yak free. I haf to take my icky meddysin twice a day furr five days and then I haf to go back to the V E T so he can see how I'm getting on.
I'm sorry we hafn't done much visiting the last week, but mum has been watching me like a hawk and hasn't had much chance to help us visit. We hafn't been to efurrybuddy to thank you furr your purrs and purrayers and advice, but we have read all your messages and we really preesheate it. You all are wunnerful furrends and we are thankful furr you all.
When I am feeling better mum said she'll help us visit all of you.
Thank you again furr being our furrends.
I don't like this bloo thing they've put on me and I WILL get it off.

The Beans collected me furrom the V E T this evening. Annie Thetik made me go to sleep so the V E T could flush my bowels out. He said there was not as much poop there as had looked like on the X-rays and definitely no hairballs. He asked mum if she was sure I hadn't pooped and she said she was. He said my bowels were a bit thickened and he thought I had an infection in them even though my temperature is normal. I haf to take two types of icky meddysin twice a day. The Beans gave it to me a little while ago and I was ok furr half an hour, then I yakked it up with a lot of bile. Mum hopes it was Annie Thetik who made me yak it up, the bile worries her. She looked at my ears and lips and said they are nice and pink though.
I think Flynn double hates me now. He whapped me as well as hissed at me. Mum shut him outdoors on his own furr a while, she didn't want to really but she said she can't have him upsetting me. When he came in, he was extra loving to her. He didn't hiss at me, but he slinks past me on his belly and gives me a wide detour. I think he's scared I might make him smell like me. At the moment I smell worse than Baby Mao. Mum and dad tried to clean me up a bit, but I'm a bit leaky.
Mum sez she hopes I don't yak my medicine up tomorrow otherwise she's going to have to tell the V E T. I hope I feel better tomorrow.
Tuesday, June 10, 2008
Annie Thetik gave me an enemy but nothing's happened yet, well apart furrom my butt's a bit leaky. I think my enemy might be trying to make me dissolve. Mum's put a blankie on the bed and she said she'd rather I didn't sleep on her head tonight. She could put the blankie on her head then we'd both be happy.
Flynn: I don't really hate you Eric, it's cuz a voice in my head tells me you're an alien that's taken over my brofurr's body. It tells me to hiss at the alien and make it go away so Eric can come back.
Eric: I keep telling you I'm the real Eric but you won't listen to me.
I really need to poop tonight or else I will haf to go back to the V E T again, and I really don't want to go there. I haven't yakked furr about 36 hours, so that has to be good, and I ate a tiny bit of Stinky Goodness Monday night. Mum cooked me fish again which is very good cuz I love fresh cooked fish.
I want to thank efurrybuddy furr all the purrs and good wishes you are all sending me, and mum sez thanks furr all the advice you're giving her.
Purrleez keep sending purrs furr poops.
The enemy hasn't worked - still no poop. I still haven't yakked again though, but this morning I didn't really want anything to eat. Maybe mum will cook me some more fish.
Annie Thetik made me act strange. When I came home furrom the V E T yesterday I was ok, then I kept collapsing so mum rang the V E T but he said don't worry, it wuz just Annie Thetik taking a long time to wear off, and when they had brought me home, it wuz the adrenaline keeping me awake. In the evening I went all hyper, I wuz running around wiv big wild eyes and kept thinking I could see mousies everywhere to pounce. During the night mum thinks I wuz running off the walls. She thought efurrycat had come here to play herds of thundering elephants wiv me, but it wuz just me. Flynn got scared and hid.
Mum rang the V E T this morning and he said it wuz an adverse reaction to Annie Thetik. He made a note on the compooter that I had to have the same Annie Thetik as when I had my teefs done cuz I wuz ok wiv that. She told him there aren't any poops yet so she has to go and get four more enemies furr me and I haf to have them twice a day. If that duzn't work I haf to go and see Annie Thetik again and get my insides washed out. I hope my enemies are going to help me.

Easy on Sunday
Anyway apart furrom that I am enjoying some nice warm sun. I hope you all have a nice easy Sunday.
Saturday, June 07, 2008
There is not really much change from yesterday. Mum did cook me some fish last night and I ate half a dish of it. Mum duzn't think I yakked it up, but I am very good at hiding in the garden when I need to yak. I could tell her if I kept it down or not, but I'm not going to. Keep them guessing I say.
This morning I yakked white froth, but no hairballs. Usually I am very good at hurling hairballs. I am getting loads of pooping paste put on my paw three times a day to lick off. It's about three times as much as I should normally have. If it is a hairball causing my problems, (and we are all hoping it is a hairball) if I poop it out, there's going to be one big explosion.
I am taking it easy just relaxing on the compooter or in the sun in the garden. Mum sez she'll take me furr a gentle walk later.
Please keep purring furr me.
Thank you furrom Eric

The Path and purrs furr Eric.
Please can you all send my brofurr Eric your purrs. Since Wednesday night, efurry time he eats, he yaks it all up again.Mum thought he might be having trouble getting a hairball up cuz he's had a dry cough on and off furr a cupple of days like he does befurr he gets rid of his hairball. He seems happy and all right in himself, but just can't keep anyfing at all down. The Beans took him to the VE T this morning and his temperature is ok, but the VE T could feel a mass in his stomach. He said he thought that it probly is a hairball, but of course we're all really worried about it. He got stabbed by Auntie Biotik and he has to have pooping stuff put on his paw three times a day. He has to go back on Monday if there's no improvement. Please be all right Eric cuz we love you and you're making mum's eyes leak.
Dad has cut a path around the edge of our small field with his strimmer. He doesn't do it in all the fields, but the grass never dries very well around the edges here when he cuts it to make hay. It makes it easier for us to walk around as well.
We have the choice of sitting in the long or the short grass.
It makes it easier to catch the mousies in the hedge too.
And after a mousie, it's always nice to finish on a bit of long grass.
Thursday, June 05, 2008
Well, she didn't take it out, but she put another one in there as well, and put nice sweet horse hay in there furr us to sleep on. Look we have one each. We wuz hoping she wouldn't plant her tomatoes too quick.
Look what she did! She left our big plant pots furr us to nap in, and planted her tomatoes around them. That means we can come in here all summer and nap if we want to. Fanks mum, just make sure you don't water us when you water the tomatoes.

Ever since dad built our purrizen fence, we have been allowed out in the garden furrom when the Beans get up in the morning until they go to bed at night. That means we don't need our cage any more, only furr the Beans Holly Days. When they are home, dad just pulls it away furrom the garage and puts it against the hedge until it's needed next time. We still like to sit in it on the shelf though. It means we can sit outdoors when it is raining and watch the fev-vers without getting wet. Also when it is not raining, it makes a good sunspot.
Hehe Four posts in a row furr me. Wonder how long I can keep Flynn out.
