Eric and Flynn are two Engligh cats who live in the country near Plymouth.  Their Mum and Dad board horses, so there is plenty of room for them to roam around and enjoy the outside.  Flynn is the best hunter of the two and he loves to catch mice.  In the first picture he has discovered a mouse in the hedge and is zeroing in on it.  In the second picture, Flynn is in danger of having his butt snuffled by a horse while he is concentrating on getting the mouse.  In this case, the horse only watched, but on other occasions a horse has snuffled Flynn's butt, which causes him to jump really high in the air because it's a scary thing to have happen.  Flynn's favorite toy is a catnip carrot, which he has no intention of sharing with Eric.  Eric does grab it once in a while, but Flynn always gets it back.  Flynn catches mice, rats and moles on a regular basis.  He caught a snake once, which scared his Mum half to death, because there are poisonous vipers where they live.  The one Flynn caught turned out to be harmless, though.  Flynn is very generous with his catches and usually gives the mice to Eric to eat.  Once in a while, Flynn catches a bird, which makes his Mum unhappy.  If she sees him in time, she takes the bird away and lets it go again.  Other times, Flynn has eaten the bird before being seen.

                              Flynn is a cat who runs mice through their courses,
                              Except when interrupted by butt-snuffling horses.
                                            Then he jumps up far
                                            And the mice laugh, "Har!  Har!"
                               Then Flynn goes back to running mice through their courses.

Great post! I love Eric and Flynn and I didn't know their Mum and Dad boarded horses. I was born in Plymouth, btw. Great limerick, very funny! When you write your book, I think you should put in the facts about the kitties (I believe you asked for people's and cats' opinions on this a while ago and I meant to say this then. xxx
