Tech Disasters, Missing Parcels and Kitten Watch on The Pet Parade Blog Hop #216 with Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Friday greetings pawesome pals

Welcome to our weekly round-up on The Pet Parade.  This week it's all been a bit of a disaster; furstly the P.A.'s wurk computer decided to throw a seven and go to silicon heaven, then she updated her phone and the update was corrupted and it completely fried her phone which was out of warranty by one week, yep 7 iddy biddy days.  

Luckily she did back-up the phone just offur a week ago, but she had to get a new phone and her iWatch wouldn't pair with it so that had to be reset and she lost all her data off it... then a delivery from Amazon went missing, so there's four parcels that someone called Thom has now got.  We're just purrleased it wasn't our cat food, as if it had been we'd be hunting Thom down until said cat food was found! MOL

Another parcel was delivered and the contents were damaged, so that has to be returned. As mew can see it just been a shocking week, like a Mercury Retrograde only wurse.

The good news is that me and Smooch have had some excellent time in the garden, and we made sure the P.A. planted the potatoes and put some more spring bulbs in.  Actually we remembered last week that we didn't do our annual Garden Safari this year, but not to wurry we'll try and organize one soon. 

In other news, Parsley is rather peeved that his Thursday post is now being bumped to Saturday this week because my Brain Training started up yesterday, he is not purrleased, but mew'll be finding out how much tomorrow - OOPS sorry dude! MOL

And as we haven't mentioned the kittens fur a while, here's a little update...

Kitten #1 now called Sammy, snuggled with his dad, Tiger in the chair next door.  He was neutered last week, but the P.A. wasn't furry impressed at what they did to his ear, they went a bit far with the ear clip, they did they same on Kitten #2 now called Pebbles.  Kitten #3 now called Peanut went to a different vet and they didn't do that to his ear or to Tiger either.

There's just Mum and Kitten #4 to take now, and the P.A. said to her cousin to take them to the vet that didn't clip so much off... 

The little tykes are even coming into our garden now they're bigger and making themselves at home under the gazebo and playing on effurything much to Smoochie's horror. 

Mum is top left. Kitten #2 Pebbles was hiding under the tree, so there's no picture of her today.  Aren't they so cute, but don't tell Smooch I said that, otherwise he'll be widdling fur England!!! MOL MOL

  1. They took too much off of Sweetie's ear too; she's so tiny, and I will always feel bad about that!

    1. Awwwwww, I feel bad about these kittens and they're not even ours!!! XOX

    2. They've crawled into my heart, so they are 'mine' now! Plus, I got them microchipped, just in case.

  2. Whoa! What a week! Leave it to the Toms to steal your parcels. I know they spelled it Thom. The Toms are the enemies of my street gang The Alleys. Hope Amazon makes good on them.

    1. MOL CK, yes Amazon has refunded the ££££ but still, some louse has got our stuff!!! XOX

  3. How nice to see the outside family, and know that they're being TNR'd one by one!

  4. Replies
    1. We thought it was a tad offur zealous on the Vets part, we thought they'd just get a little V shaped nick in the side of the ear, not freakin' scalped almost! XOX

    2. Oh my goodness, what a terrible techy problem week, yuck! I hope you all have a suoer and trouble free weekend! Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

    3. Thanks Brian, here's hoping it gets better! XOX

  5. As adorable and gorgeous as that cat family is, we feel sorry for Smooch. Poor dude must be a nervous wreck. Sounds like things have been frustratingly horrible in the people's world there too. I'd say it can't get any worse ... but from personal experience, I know it always can!

    1. Hi MK, Bear & Ellie, yep poor Smoochie and his uber sensitives :( MOL oh yes it can always get wurse! XOX

  6. Wow, that was a big chunk out of the ear! Looks like they are having fun in the garden. I hope next week turns out much better, and Thom gets his comeuppance.

  7. Sounds like quite the week. I hope the weekend is better! That cat family is too cute. And yes, looks like they did take off a lot of the ear!

    1. Hi 3 Chatty Cats, thanks guys and yep it was too much off the ear we think! XOX

  8. Dang, mew guys (especially your P.A.) had quite the week. We sure hope the next one's a bit less electronically eventful!

    Awesome job with the TNR with the outside crew. :)

    1. Hi Gracie, we hope so too, and yep the TNR is coming along! MOL XOX

  9. Wow, your plate was way too full of bad stuff, yikes! Hope its all done being that way for a long time.

    That really is a big ear how is that kitten going to put in an for pirate day?? MOL!

    Those kittens are cute...poor Smoochie...purrs to him and all of you!
