$1500 Scholarship Still Up Fur Grabs ~ Southwell Turns Woolly & Humphrey's Got Crabs on The Pet Parade Blog Hop #214 with Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Friday greetings wunderpurr furriends

Welcome to another Friday on the Pet Parade and our weekly round-up.  As we've been Meowing Like Pirates all week, we thought today we'd share a collage from last year...

 ...and yes Humphrey did have crabs! MOL MOL #truestory But seriously we do make mighty fine pirates ARRRRRRRRRRR!

Quickly before we furget, mew may remember a few weeks ago that we shared a pawesome competition from Tuft+Paw to design a cat bed, well they've extended the the closing date to the 31st of October, so mew still have bags of time to enter fur a chance to win a $1500 scholarship.

Just click the link to be taken back to the original post with all the details, and share the competition as much as mew like.

Moving on... in Local News, just up the road from our sleepy little village is the beautiful and historic market town of Southwell - there's lots of debate on how to pronounce the name, with one camp saying; south-well and the other camp saying; suth-ull, either is actually fine but it's interesting when mew meet someone who pronounces it differently. It's like North and South, the saga! MOL 

But anyhoo we digressed there fur a moment, so the other day Dad was there and took these pics, apparently Southwell has gone all WOOLLY...

How cute is this?

And this too?

They're effurywhere! MOL 

The Alzheimer's Society and the Young Archaeologists' Club

 ...came up with a fabulous fund raiser where all the street bollards, benches and other street furniture have been given a woolly make-offur - they've been woolly-fied! MOL  

There was even a knitted elephant and a Mini car cover on parade the other day too, but sadly we missed it.  Click the links and go take a peek.

Good luck with the fund raiser and thanks to all the supurr talented knitters who made Southwell look tres magnifique, mew guys are pawesome!
