Friday Flashback

Hey kids, this is our 400th post and to celebrate I thought we'd flashback to when Ben was a baby.  This was about a year before I started my blog so you probably won't have seen these shots before...

one of my favourites

There were so many pictures I could hardly choose, Casper and Ben were always stuck together like glue it was the cutest thing :-)

Ben was so tiny

Whatever Casper did, Ben did.

lasers x2

They were world-class snugglers.

Who shared everything.

Casper looked after Ben so well.

"don't worry it's just the vacuum cleaner, it can't hurt you"

Ben wanted to be just like his brother.

"There's room for me too Casper"

Casper told Ben many things.

whisper, whisper, whisper

Taught him about life.

Helped him make discoveries.

"sometimes toys hide under the carper edges"
Encouraged him.

"well done Ben!!!"

It was a wonderful time

For both boys :-)

They certainly have a special relationship and you;ve captured it beautifully in your photos. No wonder that Ben has grown up to be such a lovely gentle adult with having Casper to be his teacher and big brother.
Congratulations on 400 posts about your wonderful kitties!

We loved this post seeing Ben and Casper together. Casper was a great role model for Ben so no wonder he loves him so.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Conga rats on your 400th post. That is terrific. We love those pictures of Casper and Ben. We especially like the one of the two of them in the bag together. They were so cute together. I remember when Molly was alive. Take care.

Rene said...

Oh those photos are SO SWEET. How cute that they are so bonded.

Angie said...

Congratulations on reaching the 400th post.
I loved the sequence of Ben and Casper shots ....I am sure with a little more narative it could be a wonderful childrens book. How handsome Prince Casper is and the perfect name for a white cat.xx

Hello, Cat,

I am almost jealous! How do you do that, keeping such a sweet happiness in your cats family? (And not to mention the dog - does this ring a bell to you?:-) )

I love tuxedos, I didn't bother about white cats, but for some years I have had a white cat, a feral one, but I can take him in my arms, he purrs, I talk to him, so that he knows he exists and means something to somebody, and I can't imagine life without a white cat now! Don't worry, he is neutered (he broke almost everything in the vet's cabinet when he woke up, but at least he will not leave kitties here and there).

Congratulations for the 400th post, I am always so happy, when I am having my first cup of coffee in the morning, to see that you posted something! You and other bloggers I follow every day and make my days so happy, or unhappy when something sad happens to our four-feet friends!

Smoochies to the kitties and the woofie,

Kwee Cats and Art said...

Has a happy!

What a wonderful post of these two loving boys. I feel so warm and cozy reading it and enjoying the pictures, that I hate to leave! Congratulations on 400 posts, they are always such a pleasure.

CCL Wendy said...

How utterly adorable! It looks like Casper took Ben right under his wing (literally) and showed him how to do things, and took care of him. I'm sure they forged a bond for life.

Concats on 400! How sweet, we loved this post! Isn't it wonderful when an older cat mentors a kitten? Thanks for stopping by on our Gotcha Day and helping us celebrate.
