The Saturday Solution ~ An Informational Post

Welcome to another installment of


The Saturday Solution


 ~ An informational Sponsored Post ~ 






Many Greetings Pawesome Furriends


What a week it's been, and if mew remember last weekend we put the P.A. through the mill, mew can see her handy work here:

So anyhoo, we, collectively know as the Kitty Clan, thought that she did a truly tremendous job in the garden with all the raised beds and decided that she deserved something nice or a bit speshul from us to show our ongoing appreciation fur all her hard work.

So we got together, as we do and began to have a serious discussion on how best to reward her efforts.

*   *   *

'The Gift'

 "I think we should get her a great big box of catnip, with a lovely pink bow on it!" Smooch said.

I almost, almost snorted. "Smooch," I replied in my most serious tone. "I don't think the P.A. wants catnip, I think you'd like a big box of it fur yourself!"

Smooch dropped his head in shame and went silent.

Parsley laughed out loud. "Smooch, mew got caught right out there!"

"Well your suggestion of some new mouse toys was really pants!" Smooch retorted.

"Well it beats having to give her the real thing to deal with!" Parsley replied. "Mew know how she gets when we bring 'em back alive and leave them fur her to find!"

"Enough," I said sternly. "Now look, let's get serious, we are not getting the P.A. any cat related goodies ok?"

The Clan nodded in agreement.

"We need something a little more sophisticated fur her, mew know how she likes nice things, so get your thinking caps on and let's get her something she'll love and Parsley mew're paying as mew're the one with all the money!"

Parsley gave me a rather sheepish look and nodded.

Amber suddenly began to wave her paws rather ecstatically. "Eureka!" she exclaimed excitedly.

The five of us [and spirit-kitty Posie] looked at her rather suspiciously.

"Eureka?" I asked. "What the flip is a Eureka?"

"Oh mew guys, get with the programme, what does the P.A. love?" Amber asked.

We all shrugged and stared blankly at her.

Amber harrumphed rather loudly. "Don't mew guys pay attention to anything?  The P.A. loves softness!" she declared as if we all understood her completely bonkers cryptic-ness.

"Softness," we all murmured.

"Yes, she loves softness, soft fabrics," Amber said rather sharply. "She loves cashmere and merino wool!"

"Oh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" we all exclaimed.

"Are we all on the same page now?" she asked. 

We got together in group huddle and pondered this revelation.  Coming up fur air I said. "Oh so that's what she wears, cropped merino wool and cashmere cardigans!"

Amber nodded.  "Yes, she wears cashmere and I think we should get her a new cropped cashmere and merino wool cardigan!"

We all looked at her in astonishment. "What a totally brilliant idea, I can't believe I didn't come up with it myself!" I said. "Get the iPad guys, we're going shopping fur supurr soft woolly jumpers."

Seconds later Parsley and Smooch appeared with the iPad and off we went into cyberspace on a cute cardigan shopping expedition.

After much purrusal, we found the most purrfect one effur; a supurr cute merino wool and cashmere cardigan in a hot pink colour from the ladieswear section of an online store the P.A. has shopped with on numerous occasions.

"The P.A. will be most delighted," we all agreed, after Parsley had paid fur it.

"I can't wait to see her surprise when it arrives!" I said.

So watch this space, as we'll be posting pictures of the new cardi when it arrives and hopefully the P.A. will model it too! MOL

The Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 94 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Jan's Funny Farm & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou

WELCOME TO 


 THE PET PARADE BLOG HOP!





Welcome to another fabulous edition of The Pet Parade, and mew know how much we look forward to this effury week and love to see who's joining us!

We've had quite a busy week thus far, mew can catch up here if mew missed anything in reverse order:





And tomorrow we're back with another Informational Post on The Saturday Solution.

So we haven't really had time to even nap propurrly! MOL

In other news, Smooch had a flea aka juffa on his head the other night, the P.A. thought he'd got some eye-snot on his eyebrow and went to remove it and the eye-snot moved and began to crawl towards his ear, so she got the offending juffa and squished good and propurr.  Then it was a total lock down, the juffa comb came out and we were all thoroughly inspected and had a de-juffering treatment just in case.  No further juffa's were found but mew can imagine 'Juffa-Watch' is on full alert now.

We know where the offending party came from, Smooch had a bird* earlier that evening, so that's the source and hopefully due to the diligent and swift actions of the P.A. that's the last of them fur a while - Juffa-Genocide Protocol is in Action!

NO JUFFA'S ALLOWED - THIS IS A JUFFA FREE ZONE

[*The Tabbies of Trout Towne will be best purrleased at this news! Smooch did it just fur mew guys, in honour of the cause, that's what he told us! MOL & ROTFLOL]
  
So on that note, we'll wish mew all a supurr furry weekend, and hope that mew can drop by tomorrow and we'll be back with Sunday Selfies, obviously on Sunday!

Kitty kisses and many hugs

Wordy on Wednesday


http://picasion.com/gl/4MXZ/

Greetings Furriends

Many of mew left comments on yesterdays post regarding what types of plants we needed in the new raised beds, mainly catnip! MOL

Well, as it happens we already have a plentiful supply of catmint in the garden, in fact this year one of the plants is so big all of us could get lost in it!  The furst 3 photo's were taken last summer of me having a really good time and the next 4 were taken today.











No: 1


No: 2


No: 3


No: 4


As mew can now see, there are four millwheels with more than enough fur effuryone... the P.A. planted them in the millwheels as trying to get into a plant pot and roll around just wasn't happening fur any of us, so she furry kindly solved the problem and now we can roll and roll and roll, lay in it, bathe in it, snooze in it and really, to be purrfectly honest, it's completely fabulous.  Effury home should have such a delivery system fur maximum enjoyment.

In fact it could be time fur a

**PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT** Tuesday Tails ~ The Curse of The Klepto Bunny ~ Part V

**PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT**

Dear Pawesome Furriends

We are furry sorry to inform mew that due to a disturbance in the force and an unexpected glitch in the cosmos our normal Tuesday programming schedule has been severely and most rudely interrupted.
In other words it's totally and unequivocally disrupted!

Actually, if mew read our Friday Post mew'll know that we had big plans fur the P.A. this weekend, and it seems our plans were a little ambitious, thus rendering today's post somewhat behind schedule due to fingers being worked to the bone from the moving of 5 tonnes of soil fur the raised beds, the good news is, the P.A. didn't need to go to the gym all weekend and her biceps are looking real good! MOL  The only outside job left uncompleted from our furry long tick sheet was the spraying of the weeds due to atmospheric conditions being non-conducive all weekend ie: too flipping windy. But we remain hopeful fur still conditions one evening this week, so we can put the tick sheet in the bin! 

These are 3 the raised beds in the courtyard complete with the magic runner beans planted, we are uncertain as to whether these will be just fur vegetables or a combo of flowers and veg...  there will be purple broccoli being planted, that is a certainty! MOL



This is the fourth in front of the summerhouse, [The P.A. also adorned the summerhouse with 400 twinkly lights as well.] This bed is finished and planted with lavender, foxgloves, delphiniums, lupins, pinks, snapdragons, sage, plus some large white daisies at the back against the fence, and then it was mulched.  It will be properly pretty when in full bloom. 


So mew can see it was a big job, but worth it.  We are loving laying on the sleepers, a new snoozy spot fur us cats.

>^.^<

Howeffur we cannot apologise enough fur the disruption, as we know many of mew are sitting anxiously, and purrhaps even chewing ones own claws to the quick in nervous apprehension as to Parsley's imminent fate.


We will endeavor to patch the P.A.'s fingers sufficiently enough fur her to complete her duties here and get the post up as fast as pawsible.

>^.^<

So in the meantime, please enjoy some light refreshments and we'll entertain mew with this!


Press play anytime to be instantly soothed and relaxed...

We even recommend shaking purrtend maracas [unless mew have real ones - even better!] in time with the mewsic... it has helped us enormously throughout this entire supurr stressful ordeal.

>^.^<

 So in the meantime, if mew missed last Tuesday's episode, catch up here:  


And Part V will be posted on Thursday instead.

>^.^<


Thank mew all fur your kind understanding

Bestest purrs

The Pet Parade Blog Hop #93 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Jan's Funny Farm & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou

WELCOME TO 


 THE PET PARADE BLOG HOP!






Welcome furriends

If mew hadn't guessed, today we are being uber Bungly Jungly Cats! MOL MOL MOL

We've had a good week, the P.A.'s big toe is healing nicely.  Which is excellent news, as we'll be able to put her to work in the garden this weekend, and as it's a Bank Holiday, she'll be able to get so much more done under our expert supurrvision, she's got to spray all the courtyard and driveway, transplant many, many seedlings into the flower beds, paint the new raised beds as the ancient railway sleepers look a little too rustic fur our taste.  Then the raised beds have to be filled with soil and planted, so it's going to be a furry busy three days fur her! MOL

If mew missed Part IV of  The Curse of The Klepto Bunny, mew can find that here:


We should be good to go, all being well if the P.A. doesn't collapse from exhaustion fur Part V on Tuesday, and we'll be back on Sunday with our Sunday Selfies post, so if mew get time do stop by fur that.

Hoping mew all have a purrfect weekend and the sun shines brightly wherever mew are

Kitty kisses and many hugs

The Saturday Solution ~ An informational Post

Welcome to another installment of


The Saturday Solution


 ~ An informational Sponsored Post ~ 


The New Toy




As mew may remember a few weeks ago we found that young Parsley had been saving his money in a box under the bed [fur what exactly we can't say fur sure]  howeffur we got him sorted, invested and making some nice interest.  As his investments have been doing furry well he decided just the other day to splurge some cash on something he'd had his eye on fur quite some time.

Anyhoo, Parsley being the young impulsive housepanther that he is decided to scour the interwebs fur his new toy and found it at the best price overseas, so far overseas it was almost in another dimension!

*   *   *  

I was sitting in the lounge with the P.A. when he sheepishly appeared as if by magic in front of us. he sat on the rug and gave us a look, mew know that look, the one that says "Oh my what do I do now?"

The P.A. gave him a quizzical glance as I said. "Parsley, what's up dude?" 

"Basil, mew know I wanted that supurr new toy, the one that's remote controlled with all the glittery feathers?" he said.

I nodded, my eyes narrowing. 

"Well I found it at the bestest price in a land far, far, far away and I don't know how to pay fur it as I don't have a credit card!" he replied solemnly. "And I really, really want it!"

I raised an eyebrow and tried not to smirk as I gave the P.A. a quick sideways glance.  She too was trying hard not to smirk.

Slowly I took a long inhale, stretching the moment out as Parsley squirmed like a naughty kitten on the rug. 

 "And this is exactly why mew don't have a credit card," I answered trying not to chuckle.  "But there are other ways to pay."

Before I'd even closed my mouth he'd perked up exponentially. "Really?  Mew promise?" he beamed widely and did a little happy dance.

"Yes, we can send a Bank Transfer and mew can have your supurr new fandango toy," I said.

"Oh wow," Parsley was almost somersaulting with joy, "Can mew do the Bank Transfer fur me? Purrlease?"  

"Of course," I replied. "It's furry simple and mew can send your money all over the world should mew need too, we can either call the branch, go online or head into the bank..."

Parsley cut me off rather abruptly.  "Let's go online as I don't think the P.A. wants to take a cat hoard to the bank today!"

I nodded in agreement as I remembered that the P.A. actually broke her big toe on Tuesday and has been hobbling effur since.

"Yes great idea, we'll leave the P.A. to recoup," I said jumping off the sofa. "Come on, let's do this Bank Transfer and get mew your new toy."

Parsley followed me from the room, with the biggest smile I've effur seen threatening to engulf his entire face!

*   *   *

And that's how we sorted Parsley's toy purchasing dilemma today! MOL

Happy Caturday Furriends

Enjoy your day and we'll be here tomorrow with Sunday Selfies

Until then

The Pet Parade Blog Hop #92 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Jan's Funny Farm & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou

WELCOME TO 


 THE PET PARADE BLOG HOP!





Welcome, welcome and welcome!

Mew may, or may not remember that the 'puter broke last week, well it's took a lot longer than we previously anticipated to put effurything back on it, that and trying to find programme discs so we can actually open files too! MOL  

So it's been a fun week fur the P.A., we on the other hand have been spending rather a lot of time outside as the weather has been most temperate, Smoochie who only goes out under supurrvision found the newly sprouted catmint plant much to his liking as mew can see, in fact he liked it so much that it looks a little [well actually, a lot] worse fur wear now.  I would liken its current condition to a shredded pancake, let's hope it recovers sufficiently before the P.A. sees it.  There are still another 3 supurr healthy plants in the other millwheels so while that one recovers we still have more to attack randomly. 

In other news, The Curse of The Klepto Bunny will continue next week, here's the links fur the previous episodes:


Well we hope mew have a supurr Friday and enjoy this weeks Pet Parade, it's always lovely to see mew all and we'll be back tomorrow with a special info post on The Saturday Solution.

Until then

Kitty kisses and many hugs
