Fashion with Felines starring Pandora Von Der Plume ~ The Feline Fashionista ~ Featuring Supurr Funky Space Cat Leggings & Give-Away

Welcome to

Bonjour mes amis!

And velcome to my regular Fashion vith Felines post!

Bringing mew the cutest, fun trends in kitty themed fashion fur your pet hooman.

As many of mew know I once lived in the beautiful, romantic city of Paris fur a spell during my time vith The Resistance, and vhile there I developed a love of fashion. So if mew're looking fur the best in kitty apparel mew're in the right place!

If mew 'av missed any of my previous feline fashionista posts, 'ere they are:

Kitty Shirt T-Shirts

Irregular Choice Starry Night Handbag

Now this veek I'm going to share vhat I bought the P.A. fur 'er birthday, I got 'er these...  
They're really a nice quality spandex/lycra mix with lots of stretch. Now the P.A. said she vanted them to wear at the gym, because one thing she doesn't like is turning up anywhere and someone else is vearing the same thing! So I thought by buying 'er these she'd definitely be the only one vearing them! MOL

So vhen they arrived and the P.A. tried them on - size S -  and she realized that they veren't going to be suitable fur a 'eavy gym session due to the low waist and fabric being a little too silky against the skin, they did ride down a little especially during squats and there's nothing wurse than continually having to pull your leggings up! MOL

Don't they look so cute on?

That aside, they've been now relegated to anytime lounge-vear and they're brilliant, so comfy and a purrleasure to wear, with no constriction, restriction or feeling that they're too tight.  Basically mew can do any job mew like and be supurr comfy vhile doing it, or if mew're just lounging around at 'ome they're purrfect fur that too. They look great with a tank, basic T or a tunic, layering wurks furry vell too,

The final vote: a paws down fur gym-vear unless mew constantly like 'oisting your leggings up, but a big paws up fur the ultimate comfort in lounge-vear. 

If mew're wundering vhere to get them from; they vere from Amazon though the bad news is they're unavailable now, but the good news is I 'ave an extra set to give-away in a size M - details further on in the post.

Pandora's Fierce Fashion Tip:

Now onto the Give-Away

The give-way is open wurld-wide** as usual, and all mew 'ave to do is leave a comment below. I'll do the video draw fur the winner next Friday at 5pm, so mew 'ave until then to enter and the winner vill be announced the on Sunday Selfies on the 29th July!

And vhat's the prize, I 'ear mew ask?

Vell mew've already seen vhat the supurr cute prize is, one pair of space cat leggings in size medium - approx 12 to 14 UK size or  8 - 10 US & Can size.

[**Unless mew're in one of those countries that aren't allowed to join in. Mew know who mew are!]

Still No Rain, Can Mew Help With The New Book Blurb? & Smooch Finally Gets His Own Post on the Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 257 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Pawesome Friday Greetings Furriends

Welcome to the Pet Parade and our weekly news round up!

Mew may remember last week that we were all geared up fur doing our speshal rain dance ceremony, well we did get some rain but only a fine drizzle fur about 15 minutes on Monday evening.  So aftur much deliberation on where we went wrong we've decided to try again this weekend only really upping the ante - more drums, more chanting, more dancing, burning more herbs, and partaking in way more of the nip peace pipe to honour The Rain Gods, The Ancestors and whoeffur else might need a bit of honouring! 

We're not looking fur a Biblical flood or the like [our ark isn't quite ready], just a nice gentle pitter patter of rain fur a few hours.

In other news, which I'm finding purrticularly exciting; is that I'm just in the process of having the cover redone fur my original book, Basil the Bionic Cat and the furst proof is absolutely so exciting it makes my fur quiver just thinking about tit

So now I need some new and exciting book blurb fur the back cover and I was wundering if any of our pawesome furriends who have already read it, have any ideas as I need 4 or so really tempting and teasing sentences?

Mew see my dilemma, so if any of mew have any fav parts of the book do let me know and purrhaps I can devise something from your helpful suggestions. 

Thanks so much!


And finally mew may remember last Caturday on Parsley's latest Pet Peeves - link below - that Smooch really had his boggle bugged because he suddenly realised that he didn't have a post all of his furry own and we asked mew our pawesome pals and readers what kind of post Smooch should have and mew gave us some really great idea's though Marvelous Marv suggested a travel post and then Gracie & Ava aka MeowMeowMans took it one step further and suggested... 


...and then HRH Princess Erin added that it could include: sports/activities section, maybe a magazine style post? Tanks Torpedo's and the Modern Cat, that sort of thing!

So thank mew all furry much, Smooch is best purrleaed that he's finally got his own post and he'll be off Smooching Around The Wurld; though it may take a while to figure out the finer details, but he will be with mew as soon as he has something supurr fun to share.

Pandora will be here tomorrow with another Fashion with Felines post and then we'll be back with our usual selfie selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then, in the meantime we wish mew all an epic weekend

Bestest purrs and big hugs

**NEW FEATURE** What Would The B Team Do? There's A Volcano Erupting On The Isle Of Cats - Can This Fabled Island Be Saved From Certain DOOM?

Wednesday greetings fabulous furriends

Welcome to another 
Fur our new readers; some of mew may not know that as well as being your ordinary, effuryday kitties, we're also an elite horde of Kitty Commando's opurrating from a secret bunker in Mewton-Clawson in the heart of the English countryside, and saving the wurld at least once a month is what we do. Though mew neffur get to read or hear about it because its classified and way above your pay grade!

[BB HQ Control Centre in The Secret Bunker]

So, we hear mew ask, what is; What Would The B Team Do?

Well pawesome pals, we're going to give mew a dangerous or deadly scenario and mew get to choose one of several options on how we would respond, and then we show mew how we responded next time!

And today's scenario is this...

There's A Volcano Erupting On The Isle Of Cats - Can This Fabled Island Be Saved From Certain DOOM?

Just 5 days ago we got a frantic call from the Wurld Safety Authority [WSA] in Geneva, Switzerland asking if we could quell a volcanic eruption that was currently occurring on the mountainous and sacred Isle of Cats residing in a secret location in the Adriatic sea.

The volcano was bubbling away, small lava flows were gently cascading towards the capital city of Ocelot, not to be confused with Camelot. Anyhoo, the liquid fire riverlets were only 3 clicks away from the capital and surrounding suburbs; homes of 1000's of feline residents were under immediate threat.

The WSA had called fur an immediate evacuation of all affected areas, but all indications from the esteemed Institute of Volcanology aka The IoV, the volcano had about 2 to 3 days before it erupted in a monumental way, and pawsibly destroying the fabled isle.  

And the local golfing community were not best purrleased!

This is a part transcript of the actual conversation:


"Fur fluffs sake Amber answer the phone already!" I shouted from the bunker corridor. I was fur all intent and purposes rather busy moving a recently delivery of supplies to level three, our warehouse level and the many,  many boxes on my trolley were nearly touching the corridor ceiling - yep when we have a delivery, we really have a delivery!

"Welcome to the Cats Whiskers Holistic Health Retreat, this is Suki how may I help mew?" Amber said sweetly using our regular cover-story just in case it was a wrong number calling.

"This is Hans Plush from the Wurld Safety Authority in Geneva," said the caller in a lovely lilt. "We require the immediate and urgent services of Basil & The B Team."

"One moment purrlease while I transfer your call," Amber replied in that same sweet tone, then yelled at me like a fish-wife. "BASIL CALL ON LINE ONE, IT'S HANS PLUSH FROM THE WSA IN GENEVA!" 

"Thanks Amber," I called back. "I'll take in it my office."

A few moments later I was at my desk and picking up the phone. "This is Basil, how can I help mew?"

"Is that  Basil, Commander Basil Widdairs?" Hans asked.

"Yes this is he!"

"Thank cod, we've got a deadly situation," Hans replied tensely and quickly explained the details to me.

More of the transcript next time...

So What Would The B Team Do?

A. Tell Hans we're remodeling the bunker and we can't pawsibly make it until the refurb is offur.

B. Hop in the stealth bomber and fly up to Greenland. Use Humphrey's miniaturizing ray gun to shrink the giant iceberg that's currently threatening coastal communities.  Take the shrunken iceberg; keeping it well frozen fur the journey back to the Isle of Cats. Then throw it out of the stealth bomber as we're circling the erupting volcano, and using the reverse feature on the miniaturizing ray gun to make it full size, and let it land on the volcano thereby extinguishing it.

C. Go watch the latest Jurassic Wurld movie at the cinema.


D. All of the above, because we're really that EPICALLY EPIC!

The answer will be on the next

MOL sorry about that, but mew that's know how we roll!

Thanks fur visiting today and and tomorrow we'll be sharing a new jigsaw puzzle on the Puzzle Page to keep mew entertained until Friday when we'll be back with The Pet Parade blog hop.

Until then

Keep Calm
