Colouring with Cats #49 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays & PURRLEASE STOP SLURPING!


Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furriends

I thought that this week we'd go outside and do a little bit of Om-ing, little did I know that I'd been followed...



Anyhoo, we do hope mew've all have a totally pawesome weekend and that mew're ready fur the week ahead, so let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Don't mew feel better already?  I know I do!

Oh and I'd better mention that the P.A. has gone and injured herself... again... tut tut tut! This time she tripped and has hurt her right arm quite badly, tendon damage and she can't use it much as its too painful and she can't straighten it at all.  She thought it would be better but sadly there's not been not much improvement aftur a week, so she's really outdone herself this time... do bear with us while we muddle along at less than a snails pace, as I think this will take about 3-4 weeks to heal purroperly - many apologies! 


All the mandala's featured are created & designed by us.


So without further adieu here's this weeks mandala.
Just right click the image to save and print it...

And here's our finished version...


Coloured with mat, metallic and glitter gel pens.


If mew'd like to share your peeps pawesome artwurk feel free to upload it to our Facebook page at:


Bionic Basil & The 'B' Team @Facebook

as we'd really, really love to see your finished mandalas.

Basil vs The Flutterby and The Catservatory on the Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 230 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou


Happy Friday pawesome furriends

Welcome to this weeks Pet Parade, and furstly we have to say a supurr special thanks to Erin, HRH at the Palace fur furry kindly sending us a rather pawesome Flutterby Toy.  

Appurrently it was too far noisy fur one with such delicate and sensitive ears, and much more suited to a heathen hoard like ourselves who are are not bothered by such things - years of shooting, driving tanks and flying loud things will do that to mew!

Anyhoo, it was so funny, we thought Fudge would pounce on it, but in fact it was me who couldn't resist the magical allure of the blue flutterby as it teased me in such an evocative way, so here's exactly what happened.  And fur an older geezer I still think I've got the moves dudes! MOL


In other news, we're having a little catservatory put up this week, it should have been done before Catmas, but thanks to that horrific Mercury Retrograde stuffing effurything up fur most of December, the peeps arrived on Monday without warning - yep residual Mercury Retrograde still affecting 2018.  So anyhoo hopefully next week the builders will be gone and we can choose a floor and get a wood stove sorted.  

Appurrently the P.A. is planning on making the house wall a bit of cativity climbing jungle fur us, and we'll obviously be showing our pawesome pals here on the blog the pics in the next few weeks as it's completed.

So that should be fun when its finished, and hopefully Fudge's desire to be up high will be satisfied by being able to climb up the platforms and cross the rope bridge, actually it does sound a bit like an Indiana Jones movie and it could well be... Well we do have the amethyst crystal cave next to Amber's library, and we do love a bit of an adventure, so anything is pawsible here, mew guys know that furst paw! MOL

Watch this space!

Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #54 featuring Cats Getting Stuck! Get Meowta Here!

Welcome To


With me, Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty


Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Welcome, welcome and welcome. Today I need to address the situation between Basil and myself.

HE LIED!  

End of!

Now this week I found something rather amewsing fur mew on the book front and Fudge says it's pawesome!


This week I'm sharing

Cats Getting Stuck


Here's the book blurb:

Cats Getting Stuck documents some of the funniest scrapes felines have got themselves into, from wrestling with hangers to getting wedged into glass jars, or the results of overambitious climbing! But whenever they’re caught with their paws in a twist, they style it out as though they WANTED to get tangled up in some window blinds. We can but stand back and laugh (then untangle them).


As mew can see Fudge is loving it!

Fudge sat flicking through the pages. "Yep, done that, did that, and that... oh I need to try that.... cor look at that... did that yesterday... oohhhhh that looks fun... done that.... must try that..."



If mew want a little chuckle or purrhaps a raucous outburst of laughter, this little book can make that happen, mew have 125 pics to purruse at your leisure.

So if mew're in need of a little lift in your life, then try this... in fact I think that Fudge is trying pages 71 thru 79 right now!

OH HECK I've got to go sound the alarm...

*    *    *

Sadly it's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and don't furget that I'll be back next week with another specially paw-picked book just fur mew.

Happy reading or listening
