THE LAST BIG JOLLY ~ Part XII Of Our Latest Epically Epic Adventure!

Welcome to



In our latest mind-blowing, fur-raising, most epically epic adventure to date when we attempt to travel around the wurld in 42 and a bit days!

What could possibly go wrong?

Pawesome greetings supurr pals

Welcome to Part XII of our latest saga and we know this is the post mew've all been waiting fur since last Tuesday, so let's get started and see what today's episode brings! 

To catch up on the action, here's the links fur the previous episodes:


A quick recap from the last episode:

"Wow!" I breathed as I almost fell into my pleather chair. "That was pawesome!"

Smooch was grinning like a loon, "Oh Basil that so so funny when mew parachuted off those towers and that helicopter came and the police started shooting at mew!"

We paw bumped and laughed hysterically, well actually I think it was the adrenaline still pumping around my body.

Humphrey said, "Basil dude, your chute looked like Swiss cheese, thank cod mew landed safely!"  MOL

Parsley handed round some cans of Red Nip, the energy drink fur hardcore cats like ourselves, we drank heartily before crushing the cans and tossing them into the trash like we were playing basketball, and Pandora got us the freak out of there before the police impounded the TTTB.

"Amber, how are we doing on the bucket list?" I asked.

"We managed eight destinations, so we did purretty good!" she answered.

"Somepurrdy pass the list purrlease," I said.

Snowie handed me the rather crumpled Bucket List and I crossed off the eight destinations. 

"Only twenty more to go guys, and does anypurrdy want to make any changes?" I asked.

"Oh I do, I do!" Snowie said waving her paw. "I'd like to change a couple in South America!"

"I agree," Humphrey said. "I found some other places we can visit."

"Really?" I asked.

"Defo fur sure," Humphrey grinned. "But now I need to talk to Bob about trying to get the TTTB off Catopia, so unless mew lot want to be stranded, bugger off and let me and Bob geek-speak!"


Part XII

Ticking Off The Bucket List At Warp-Speed

**And Action!**

We were sat on the bridge aftur we'd eaten a rather tasty buffet lunch served in the Nip Bar deliberating the Catopian Dilemma, when Pandora said in her odd little foreign accent.

"Vhile mew are all mulling offur the issues vith escaping Catopia's weird gravitational field and all the other planetary anomalies I'm getting us back on The Bucket List, so if anypurrdy vants to make any changes, now is the time speak or fureffur hold your peace!"

Snowie raised a paw as did Humphrey. "We've decided that we want to swap Porto Alegre fur Rio," Snowie said.

"Yep that, and Punto Arenas is defo off the list and we're just going to Caracus instead!" Humphrey said.

"And we want to go to Iguassu Falls instead of Buenos Aires," Snowie said. 

"Oh and we want to go to Machu Pichu instead of Lima," Humphrey said. "And there's some lost city in Colombia somewhere we'd like to see instead of Bogota."  

"Are those the only changes to the itinerary?" Pandora asked. "But that means mew only have forty-seven destinations?"

Snowie and Humphrey went into a huddle fur a few moments, then turned and said. "Catopia makes forty-eight!" 

"Very vell," Pandora said efficiently and began to input the destinations. 

"Is effurypurrdy ready fur The Bucket List at warp-Speed?" I asked.


"Pandora, hit that button!" I grinned, and before I could blink we were off.

A few moments later...

"Parsley get the camera drone and effurypurdy line up at the door. Comms on what channel Snowie?" I shouted.

"Comms on channel three," Snowie said and we all piled out of the door.

"Come on effurypurrdy, get in position," Parsley yelled as the camera drone shot into the sky and the Bucket List continued in earnest.

"WOOOOO HOOOOO!" Smooch yelled as we entered the TTTB. "That was epic dudes!!"

He paw-bumped Parsley and Fudge, then me.

"Did mew see those pygmy cannibals in the jungle?" Fudge said.

"Yeah and what about those piranhas near that waterfall, mew wouldn't want to go swimming there!" Parsley laughed.

"And could mew believe those huge statues, they were amazing!" Amber said.

"I really liked the castle!" said Bob.

 "My favourite was Machu Pichu!" Snowie said.

"Did mew see how HUGE those whales were?" Humphrey sighed.

"And what about the Lost City?" Posie grinned.

"My favourite was the lonesome lighthouse!" mused Pandora.

"Yep, it was all totally spectacular!" I agreed pulling out the now rather crumpled bucket list and began to cross off all the latest destinations. 

"There's only nine places left!" I said suddenly realizing how many I'd just ticked off.  

I glanced up and looked fur Snowie and Humphrey, who I spied relaxing in the Nip Bar with a few Nip Cocktails laughing and joking as Bob pulled a myriad of funny faces. 

And that's when it hit me... not long now til they get their wings!


It's that time of the post, when we bet mew've more questions/comments than mew can shake your tail at!
