Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library

Feline Fiction on Fridays #108 at Amber's Library ©BionicBasil®  Amber

Wow I can't believe a week has gone by so quickly, it seems like only yesterday I was here, time is doing some funny things right now.  

I was going to wait until next week to mention how our health-check went, but the good news news is Melvyn and I are fine after our trip to the VETS on Wednesday morning.  Melvyn weighs 5.3kg, however he's still got a whole kilo to catch up with Sauce, though he did say he's going to going to go all out to be level with him in the next year... Yes, Melvyn is now bulking and going all in to meet that goal! MOL 

I've lost a little bit of weight and I do have arthritis and onset CKD, but given I'm 17 this is purrfectly normal for an elderly catizen like myself.  I do take CBD oil to help with the arthritis and some days I do walk like Robo-Cat but so it goes - though mew should see how the P.A. walks furst thing in the morning since her accident, it's like Darwin's Evolution during the furst couple of hours and she makes me look pawsitively fluid! MOL  [But for Cods Sake don't tell her I told mew that, or she'll be revoking my credits at Audible and I really don't want a rerun of last time!]

Anyhoo in other news, remember our basket on the landing; well it got a little make-over this week and as mew can see Melvyn got to try it furst!  It got a new lease of life with a white paint finish, a new supurr comfy cushion was made for the bottom, then a pom pom trimmed throw for the top with two small catnip pillows in matching fabric for extra comfort.

He says; it meets with his approval, and the P.A should have revamped it ages ago! MOL

Melvyn also has a bandanna and snuggle mat in the same fabric, though with different trim, click here to see.

And now I think it's time to share this weeks book.

You Need More Sleep 

 Advice From Cats


Francesco Marciuliano

Here's A Small Snippet of the Book Blurb:    

Our feline friends have spent eons observing, napping, pondering, napping and taking notes about the human condition. In between naps, they’ve realised that we humans could use some catlike guidance when it comes to handling the ups and downs of life.


 Furstly I bought this way back in February and actually furgot all about it until I was going through one of the 'unread' book piles in my library - OOPS!  So I thought I'd better get a wriggle on and review it this week! MOL

 I did another review by the same author a while ago, so check that out too.  

Anyhoo what did I thing to this little book of wisdom for our pet hoomans? Though not a large book I thought it was fab and very funny in places. It has some lovely photo's of lots of different cats, and covers four different areas of life advice including; relationships, social minglings, climbing the corporate ladder and all about ones-self.  So it purretty much covers all aspects that mew could ever really need to relay to your hooman, which is really good as don't mew think that some hoomans over-complicate things? 

In fact I would say that this would make the purrfect pressie for your hooman; my advice, buy it for Catmas, then a; mew've already took care of your shopping and b; mew've bought something thoughtful - the purrfect gift, so many levels of pawesome!

The Annual VET Check Up, Fudge Has News & Smooch Isn't Sharing on The Pet Parade 326 with Dash Kitten, Barking from the Bayou and US!

The Pet Parade Autumn Banner 2019 @BionicBasil Dash Kitten & Barking from the Bayou
 Wednesday Greetings Pawesome Furriends

And welcome to our weekly news round-up

Pandora ©BionicBasil® The Pet Parade 326

This week is The B Teams Annual VET check-up with booster jabs.  We go two at a time over 3 days, and the good news is:

Smooch is great, and he hasn't put any weight on at all, although the VET did remark that he looked rather grumpy yesterday.

Parsley is great, though he's put 300 grams on, but then he is bulking right now and was really pleased at his gains. He's a really big cat, not fat just solid.

Pandora is great, although she is getting a little plaque on her teeth, but nothing to be overly concerned about right now and she's not put any weight on either.

Fudge Has News

And Fudge is great, and his weight is the same too, however he has some gum issues which have cropped up in the last few months and needs 4 teeth removing, which we're pretty upset about, and he is too. 

Melvyn and Amber are at the VET this morning at 8.45am so we'll have to give mew their health check status next week. But paws-crossed they'll both be great too.

So after we've heard about Melvyn and Amber we'll make a plan for Fudge to get his dentistry done asap.  So we'll keep mew updated about that, poor Fudge, we really feel for him.

And finally today...

Smooch Isn't Sharing

Smooch Isn't Sharing ©BionicBasil® The Pet Parade 326

Smooch says the kicker toys are all his, and nopurrdy else can use them ever, as mew can imagine this caused a small riot in the sitting room and the *water canon [*water spray gun for misting the plants! MOL] had to be deployed to disperse the unruly mob! #truestory

If mew've missed any of the posts offur the last week, here's the catch up links:

Amber will be here on Friday with another pawesome  book she can't wait to share with mew all, so do stop by the library, tea and nip cookies will be served, and we hope to see mew then!
