  1. Oh, no. This is awful and hard news. We are so, so sorry. We don't know what to say, we will miss Eric so much. He was a one in a million guy, an icon in the Cat Blogosphere. We only wish there was some way we could take the pain for you.

    Sending you purrs and love from all of us, and Mommy Trish

  2. Mommie's eyes are leaking as she reads this. We loved Eric. Before we started blogging - and was just lurking - Mommie had a bad back injury that required her to be in bed all day. Eric's blog was one of a handful of blogs that she knew would make her laugh each day. I know this does not help much, but please know that Eric was a very loved cat and will be very missed.

  3. Oh no no no. I love Eric and Flynn and my heart is broken too. I am so so sorry. I never expected to learn this terrible news. It is such a shock.

    Love and purrs and warmest hugs. I know Eric felt the love every day from you both. He had a life of love and happiness. I wish I could make all of this nightmare go away. But you did the best you were able for him.

  30. We miss evry cat that goes over the Bridge. Some we know better than others. We will miss Eric very very much. He was a champion mouser, tummier, and all-around superb cat! There will not be another like him

    We know that Eric is healthy and happy over the Bridge by now and that his permanent life is just starting with our own Over-TheBridges sibs here and all the others.

    So our thoughts turn to you still here. We purr for Flynn to understand that his dear brofur is relieved of his trubbles. We purr that his Beins will be comforted by Flynn and all of us.

    Our Best Purrs of Comfort to you...

  31. My heart went to my throat when I just read the news.
    I am in shock and deeply saddened.
    I so enjoyed Eric's adventures with Flynn, his tummy, his sweet and precious face.
    I don't even have the words to convey how badly my heart is hurting.
    I wish I knew the right words.
    Please send extra kisses to Flynn who has to be hurting as well and to your beautiful family.
    We love you and share in your pain

  32. We haven't blogged in over a month, but Teri told us this morning that Eric was very sick and we were sad...Tonight we read that he has crossed the bridge and we feel our hearts squeeze tight with tears and sorrow.

    We will always remember the boys together and smile when we think of Eric rolling in pheasant poop or 'leaving his calling card' anointing heather and gorse, hahameow.

    See, we smile even though we are sad because we know how dearly he was loved by his Mum and Dad. Hug each other now and just know how fortunate you were to have him in your life...

    And we thank you for sharing that life with us...Eric and Flynn have become such a part of our Curly Swirly life and made us happy to see them both enjoying farm life, something we can only imagine!

    Fly Free Handsome Orangey and White Mancat...We will miss you furrever, too...

  36. Eric, all of our eyes, including, Tommy's are so leaky tonight. We can't believe it. We know Eric feels so good running all over the Bridge--i am sure you're hanging out with our Perry, and maybe sitting on the lap of Tommy's daddy, who likes cats :)

    Our heart pours out to you, Eric and your family. We hope Flynn is OK.

    And we know, on a quiet night, when everything is still...there will a familiar sound-a purr-you. Your family will smile and know you are fine.

    We are all so sorry about Eric. Moments ago China Cat had just climbed on my lap, I took a look at FB and saw that Sweet Eric had gone to the Rainbow Bridge. China Cat is now wet with tears and we are all just sending over prayers for both of you and for Flynn. We know you will all be with each other at such a sad time. Eric & Flynn were among the first CB Friends we met and we always loved the boys stories and adventures at the farm.

  55. We are so very sad. Eric is a blogosphere legend, and a hero for us as he inspected mouseholes, braved badger burrows and always, always stood proud while he peed. We are so very sorry that he is no longer here and wish we could comfort you somehow. There are too many empty spaces in our homes right now.
    We send loads of love to you - Mum and Dad as we know your hearts are cut open. And huge nose nuzzles to Flynn. Please give him all the hugs and tummy tickles he wants from us.

  68. We are all having leaky eyes at hearing the sad news of Erics' passing. He seemed to be having such a turn around for the better these past couple of weeks, clinbing trees & haybales, mousing in the fields and taking walks with you out to the barH. Eric lived life to the fullest almost to the end. I am so glad he had those few weeks where he had the energy to act like a young ginger Mancat.
    Your posts gave Eric a voice & allowed us to know him well. We will remember Eric for the charming and chatty boy he was. I know that you both are so sadden & it will be tough for you & Flynn to adjust, but remember Eric would not want you to be sad for too long. He would want you to remember what a terrific Mom & Dad you were to him, the good times and tell you what a grand life you gave him in the beautiful mousie-filled hills of Devon with his dear brother Flynn. RPI my friend Eric, you were as good as they come.

  99. dear flynn and family. Mom is very leaky as she writes this and we are all so, so, so sad to hear about Eric's passing. We know he will still be out walking in the green grass, and will remember his tummy rubs, but mostly he will be feeling young and healthy and that his heart will always be full of your love.

    We are sure Eric is fine at the bridge teaching all the previously indoor kitties the correct way to hunt and have adventures.

    What a lucky boy he is to have had such a loving family, in an amazing enviroment.

    Thank you for all the adventures, Eric. We pray for your family's comfort.

    Eric was an extraordinary cat. One look at his amazing face could tell you that and we fell in love with him from the moment we met him. Eric was loved the world over and that love will never die. Eric will be in our hearts
    forever. Every green field, every blue sky, every oak tr
    ee will bring Eric back to us. His loving spirit will be
    with us to comfort us in those dark, difficult times when
    we feel we just can't go on. You gave him a wonderful,
    enviable life and he gave back what he received. Poor
    little Flynnie, our hearts break for him. We send you our condolences and all of our love to you as you face this this terrible loss.

    P.S. Our special candle is burning brightly for Eric.

  153. and as each one made the journey along the bridge to heaven; they could see and here just ahead; the voices and faces of friends and loved ones who had gone before

    they tried ever so hard not to look back, realizing they would see the tears on the cheeks, and hear the cries of the family and friends that were being left behind.

    Then God said welcome to my home Sauce, welcome to my home Eric, and the two friends met at the threshold of rainbow bridge

    Neither were no longer afraid, and they both turned and tossed all their pain and suffering to the wind, and entered the kingdom of heaven, to await those left behind

    my sincerest sympathies and I hope Flynn will be alright

We didn't know you Eric and are, in fact, just meeting you today, but we are terribly saddened that such a gorgeous, handsome, sweet hunk of mancat has left us. You with your perfect face and 'come kiss me' eyes...gone over the Bridge. We are also sad because there have been too many passing the bridge lately and we think that it is high time for this trend to stop!! We are too late to purr for you, but know that we are now purring for your Mom and Dad. We know your pain. We do. Mom cries all the time over our Lolo/Lautrec who crossed the Bridge over a year ago...we try to sooth her pain, but, well, love is a hard thing and only time can heal that...if it ever really can heal it. We send you lots of purrs, headbutts and tailwags as well as many gentle kisses. All of us at WeezDaBadCats and DaMeenDawgs...Tiny, Ellwood, Ginger, Elioth and Chouchou...and our Mom.

  170. hey sweet fambly, just met Eric at the bridge. He's going to get his furs done and nails... then he gets to go where every sick kitty goes when they first get here to get to choose how they live here OTRB. some wanna be big kittehs still, some wanna be lean, mean killin' machines. as soon as he gets done there, Sniffie, Inigo and I will take him to his new mansion. We offered to let him stay here but once he heard where the mansion is, he said he just had to get there! It's out in the middle of the nip field, so secluded, he's got nip field on one side, woods on the other. There's so much hunting to be done, he's going to be one busy mancat! we fink he gonna take over being the hunter trainer for new arrivals that never got to hunt when they were on Planet Purrth. His welcoming banquet will be tomorrow, so that he has time to get settled in a little first. we know you are sad, but don't mourn too long. your boy has arrived safe and will be prepping his mansion for all sorts of new adventures! and we know, many many years down the road, when Flynn joins him, he will be right there to show off their home. Me and my fursibs will install his purrsonal reflecting pond this evening so if he doesn't want to join everyone at the communal reflecting pond he doesn't have to. *angel smoochies* for the fambly left behind

And we will always remember him as surrounded by the green grass of the fields. Your blog still captures both Eric and Flynn's colors so perfectly. Hoping you are all feeling the love and prayers from everyone and that it's making you feel just a tad bit better today and more every day.
