Please watch the video below so mew are up to speed on current events

So if mew only had 24 hours left to inhabit this wondrous planet before it goes kaboom, what would mew do?

Me purrsonally, I would attack the secret stash of  Kong Catnip and have a blast, it wouldn't matter about the furniture anymore so I'd give that some mega punishment before turning my attention to the latest haul of Dreamies.  Catnip and Dreamies, what a purrfect combination!

Tell me what would mew do?

The Monday Meow! Are Mew Feeling Batty?

Welcome to this weeks Monday Meow!

This week my fantabulous furry feline furriends, I thought I'd share with mew a few facts about Bats and as Halloween was last week, I thought the topic of bats was very apt.

As mew know, my garden is a veritable delight of all creatures great, small, flying, climbing, scurrying and hopping, just to mention a few.

But I digress, often at dusk, just before it gets too dark, mew can see these little cute batty bats zooming quite low over the garden, don't worry I'm sure they're not the Vampire Bats (muwahahahahaa!) 

Image courtesy of Victor Habbick FreeDigitalPhotos.net

So let's move swiftly on to the super batastic batty facts:

Did mew know that there are over 1,100 species of bats in the world? Me either, and apparently there are more being discovered all the time!

Bats account for approx 25% of the mammal species in the UK and approx 20% world wide! 

Bats are more closely related to humans than they are to mice.  

Bats usually have one offspring per year and can live to be approx 30 years old.

A typical Batty diet is usually insects but the vampire Bats in far off colonies around the world do drink blood! 

I'm not a bat expert, howeffur mew can find out so much more at The Bat Conservation Trust:

At the website there's a whole supply of detailed information ranging from a Bat Monitoring Programme:

What do if mew have a batty purroblem:

To Gardening for Bats:

I think that it's most furry important to look after our environment and make sure that our batty furriends are looked after, so now if you encounter any batty situation mew have all the tools to deal with it safely and in a bat furriendly manner. 

Until next weeks Monday Meow, stay vigilant and keep safe.

The Purrsday Paw ~ Can mew help?

Welcome to The Purrsday Purr

This weeks paw is all about 

The Mare and Foal Sanctuary
Honeysuckle Farm Buckland Road Newton Abbot Devon TQ12 4SA

This marvellous place, rehomes and rescues unwanted and mistreated horses and ponies.  Some become permanent residents and others are lucky enough to get new homes.

They even have a sponsorship programme where mew can sponsor a pony or horse of your choosing.

Obviously this is a Registered Charity, and also one that my Purrsonal Assistant Ms. Garnell actively supports.

Mew can find out so much more by visiting their website and learn how mew can help and support the unfortunate unwanted horses and ponies that are now being looked after by these supurr kind and caring peeps.

 There is an on-line gift shop, so if mew know anyone that's horse mad, they have a purrfect selection of equine items to choose from, ideal fur birthdays and Catmass pressies too.

I know that times are tough and the economy is totally pants, but there are still so many animals in despurrate need of assistance.  So if mew could spare just a few pounds '£' to help our fellow creatures, all great and small, that would be truly pawesome!

Thank mew furry much fur listening and remember together we can make a difference - one paw at a time!

Until next weeks Purrsday Paw

The Purrsday Paw

Welcome to The Purrsday Paw! 

This week the Purrsday Paw is all about 'Clawless' another novel that I feature in with my sisfur Amber, and brofur Humphrey.

Book Description

Clawless stars: Kimmy * Pancho * Cisco * The Late Great Treat * Kittibits * Boots * Amber * Akasha * Lou * Mr * Squishy * Rain * Betsey * Mugger * Silver * Ivy * Geo * Humphrey * Basil * Luna 

Meet the Le Claw litter - the Late Jock MacTartan and his two sons, Clawde and Arfur and their mates, the feisty (and slightly over acting), Clawdette and the tiny, kitten-less Furnella. What is the dark secret that she is hiding? 

 Their main rival is Solange the wicked stepmother who married Wee Jock just days before his final demise to 'Rainbow Bridge' and who has plans to take as much as she can and leave the fashion House of Le Claw destitute. And, if they haven't got enough to worry about, up pops the evil and sinister Monsieur Le Fluffy. His dastardly intentions are to strike the company while it is vulnerable, with the sole purpose of taking it over completely leaving the Le Claws - clawless! 

And who is the mysterious Clyde from Castle Clydeula and why does he only come out only after nightfall? The claws are out for the McTartan family! 
The Catastrophe PurrductionAuthors:- Elizabeth Ann Scarborough - Christine Wilson - Anne Sutton - Rebecca Gresham - Rachael Sharma - Cathrine Garnell - Mara Strydom -Teri Offield - Etta Finta

Fish Tank Frenzy!

Dear Dr. Basil

My hooman just bought a fish tank and filled it with tasty yummy morsels.  They are all different colours and sizes, a most appealing array of yummable delicacies.   

He put it on the side table in the lounge and now he gets upset when I sit next to it and stare at the swimming snack packs and paw at the glass.  I don’t understand why he gets so uptight and furry annoyed when I sit on the lid and fish with my paw either,  (the water is furry warm and nice too!) 

I am most decidedly foncused ?????  Why else would he have brought it, unless it was a self-service buffet for pour moi?

Yours all fished out and craving fishy flavoured noms



This is my Expert Reply
Today I use the colour BLUE, as it is supurr calming and is just like the oceans ~ very Zen Harmonies. Therefore being the purrfect choice fur this particular purroblem.

Dear Cleocatra

How nice to have your very own self-serve buffet in the lounge, with a vast assortment of swimming snack packs.  Howefurr, I don’t think that was the purpose of the fish tank. Mew see, hoomans are furry peculiar and like to keep all kinds of things in tanks, such as: Spiders, Snakes, Lizards, Insects, and a whole array of other creatures (eeeeek!!!!)  I purrsonally find it quite bizarre, but who am I to pass judgement - Whatever makes them happy! For happy hoomans means a happy home, and a happy home means more love and attention fur us marvellous and magnificent kitties.

So I would suggest to mew, that purrlease by all means sit and watch the swimming snack packs, definitely NO PAWING of the glass though!  Mew may find it rather relaxing and totally hypnotic after several sessions, and that the experience enhances your Zen Harmonies furry well.  Howefurr, DO NOT fish under any circumstances (fight that primal urge and resist the temptation of your tickled taste-buds) as your hooman will most likely take great offence to this.

If, after this short conditioning programme, mew are still craving the taste of fresh sweet yummable fishies.  I would recommend the following idea’s to get your way:

A.)   Sit next to a can of Tuna/Sardines/Prawns (whateffur your chosen fancy) and meow furry loudly. Make sure the tin opener is right next to the tin. Hint hint! Mew can't be any more obvious.
B.)    If your hooman effurr eats salmon or other fishies, sit right next to him and give him your most dazzling delightful purr and nudge frequently until he gives in and shares with mew.
C.)    As your hooman likes fishies, there are bound to be magazines lying around and mew are a crafty little kitteh and have furry sharp claws, this is what I suggest:-  Carefully cut out the images that appeal to mew most of the types of fishies mew would like to nom (This is furry important: make sure they are not the same as the fishies swimming in the tank otherwise mew will look like a stalking homicidal maniac) Once mew have selected your pictures, leave them around the house in furry obvious places, as some hoomans don’t quite get the message first time round and need lots of prompting.  I would recommend leaving them on his pillow, in the bathroom, kitchen table, TV (Lick and stick to the screen - cat drool is a purrfect adhesive) and on the Computer screen too, also next to or even in your food bowl and don’t forget next to the kettle, that is a prime placement point.
D.)   If mew have any toy fish, leave these in prominent positions and meow loudly when your hooman is in the room and mew are sitting next to it, pick it up and drop at his feet. A gift for your hooman.  Your human should reward your behaviour with a treat, if the treat is not fishie flavour, walk away in complete disgust. Repeat until your hooman gets the message.

Hopefully a fishy wishy will come true for mew!

Cleocatra, I do hope that The Saturday Solution has helped mew today, and if mew need any further consultations, purrlease don't hesitate to MEOW me ~ I'm available 24-7! (Please Note: Extra charges may be incurred for out of hours service)
Yours most sincerely
Dr. Basil
@ The Saturday Solution Clinic T.M.


Todays Moral Code is:

~ If mew can't fish, make a wish  ~

If mew can relate to this purroblem or feel that mew are in need of any assistance, purrlease leave a comment to: Dear Dr. Basil.... or email me directly and I'll get back to mew.

Thank mew all for joining me today on The Saturday Solution with Dr Basil, and if you've missed this session don't forget that I'll be back next week with another open clinic and case study.

Until then, Keep Calm and Purr

Dr. Basil
