Welcome to the Pet Parade and our weekly news round up.
It was a sad week fur cat lovers effurywhere, as Grumpy Cat the Wurld-Famous kitty furry sadly departed fur The Rainbow Bridge last week at the tender age of 7.
Grumpy Cat will be missed by bazillions around the globe, though she will live on furever with all those funny memes and pics that she leaves as her legacy to us all, and we must say our favourite right now is the Game of Thrones Spoiler! MOL MOL Brilliant! Grumpy Cat will neffur be furgotten and that's a fact, she was truly one in a billion. R.I.P. Tarder Sauce MEW WERE EPICALLY EPIC!
In other news...

And finally in the news this week, Pandora caused a massive tailback in the kitchen at BBHQ on Monday morning.
Traffic was queuing fur what seemed like hours to get through to the sitting room, and onto the patio and into garden.
Luckily refreshments were on paw fur those nearer the front of the queue, and all cats caught in the delay were rather chilled about it all so no cat-rage or spats occurred! MOL

... who contacted us a few of weeks ago and asked if we'd like to try their robotic interactive toys. OMC, of course we would!
What's in the Box:
Melvyn was furst on the scene to investigate
This is what HEXBUG has to say about their toys:
HEXBUG, a leader in robotic toys, has the perfect items to keep your cat on their toes with some highly interactive and engaging cat toys. We are sure to keep your pet busy for hours chasing, clawing and capturing with these three exciting HEXBUG products!
HEXBUG nano Robotic Cat Toy
The HEXBUG nano Robotic Cat Toy can navigate around objects, find its way out of corners and flip over from its back to its feet in an attempt to escape its captor!
We got one of these to try
HEXBUG Mouse Robotic Cat Toy
Have you seen the HEXBUG Mouse Robotic Cat Toy yet? This furry feline friend is equipped with cute, playful pink ears and whiskers. When turned on, its soft rubber tail wiggles back and forth as it scampers and scurries along, calling the attention of nearby cats.
And we got one of these too.
HEXBUG Remote Control Mouse Cat Toy
Similar, but slightly techier is the HEXBUG Remote Control Mouse! This interactive smart toy comes with a remote control so that you can make it start, pause and stop on command. When turned on, the mouse’s soft rubber tail wiggles back and forth as it scampers and scurries along, calling the attention of nearby cats, just like a real mouse. [We didn't get to try this one]
Playtime at BBHQ:
Now we must admit before we begin we did have a little pre-play time with the toys, to get the feel of things and to see who was interested in them, and sadly the Nano got stuck under the fridge, but prior to that Melvyn was loving it, and until Dad gets home tonight, Nano will have to stay there ~ OOPS! MOL Anyhoo, the Nano was furry funny, it does exactly what it said on the packaging - see above - and Melvyn was transfixed following it all around the kitchen, and the P.A. was laughing so much she didn't see it take a sneaky and rather evasive detour under the fridge until it was too late.
But then Melvyn got to chase the mouse all around the kitchen, so all was not lost and he loved that as much as the Nano. We'll share some of the funny videos of The B Team playing with HEXBUG toys this week on our instagram account, so if mew want to see cheeky Melvyn pop to instagram and follow us, so mew don't miss anything.
Our closing thoughts:
These toys do not wurk on carpet or rugs, mew do need a hard floor. We also found that mew need to keep an eye on them as they can get stuck under things - NOTE TO SELF: Don't let Nano get near the fridge once it is released.
But that aside, these little toys are really fun and add a whole new dimension and feel to playtime, which we think is epic fur feline enrichment, especially those kitty's that are primarily indoor cats, as we do get bored with things and we do need our senses stimulating.
**A BBHQ TOP TIP FUR PLAYTIME**
We rotate toys our weekly so it keeps things fresh and exciting. Try rotating your toys on a weekly basis, and see how much more fun mew have!
In summary, we think that these would make a fun addition to any cats toy box, as long as mew have a hard floors.
HEXBUG IS A TOP TOY!
We would like to say a special thanks to the pawesome peeps at HEXBUGfur giving us the oppurrtunity to chase their robotic toys around the kitchen~ THANK MEW FURRY MUCH!
