Where's My Dinner, Higher Nature Pet Calm, and CatFest London 2018 on The Pet Parade Blog Hop Halloween Edition #219 with Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Supurr spooky greetings pawesome pals

Welcome to another fabulous Friday on the blog, and in this weeks round-up I wanted to know...

The P.A. was sat at the kitchen island off with fairies again while she was taking care of all my social media on her phone.  I sat and waited fur her to notice me fur a whole minute.  Yes, a whole minute I sat and used my most penetrating stare to get her attention, but nothing and I was starving, so I got right up in her grill and asked, "Where's my dinner?"

She replied. "Basil I fed you half an hour ago, you seriously can't be hungry again and if you are there's some crunchies in the laundry!"

Can mew believe that? Seriously what shoddy service this establishment has, so what if I was fed 30 minutes ago, obviously it wasn't enough, and do mew really think dry food is going to cut the mustard!!???   

NOOOOOOOOOO way missus, crunchies are NOT going to cut the mustard at all!!!

If Parsley's Pet Peeves was happening tomorrow I'd be on it and seriously PEEVING! MOL

Moving on...

The other day we were asked if we'd share some info regarding a pet calming product in the run up to Halloween and Bonfire Night, so of course we said yes.  We are also getting a sample to try, although at this point it's not arrived, so in essence this a slightly but not quite yet sponsored post.  

As mew know Smoochie is a rather sensitive little soul at the best of times so when we do take delivery of the product we'll do an in-depth post with full disclaimer.  But in the meantime as Halloween and Bonfire Night are just around the corner, today is the only day we've got free to share this info with mew. 

Here's a little bit of info, more can be found on Higher Natures Webpage:

The product is called Pets calm, and is for stress and anxiety for cats or dogs. It's a blend of theanine, tryptophan and magnesium to support pets in stressful situations. Perfect for when they are feeling anxious. Sprinkle or mix in with food. It's great for firework night!

In other news, the P.A. got tickets fur the furry furst cat festival in London, aptly called

Catfest London 2018

In their own wurds....

A celebration of all things feline, CatFest makes its debut in London, showcasing fancy pet food and accessories, along with stylish cat-related products for cat folks, books, art, veggie street food, cocktails, films and inspiring talks from bestselling writers and animal experts. Plus an onsite adoption lounge brought by our beneficiary charity Feline Friends to raise awareness about welfare efforts and help cats in need.

Mew can order tickets here ~ sadly all the early-bird prices had gone, but the P.A. was just happy to get her mittens on a couple of normal priced ones.  So that looks quite fun and no doubt there'll be a tail or two to tell fur sure! MOL

 And if mew want to go to the National Pet Show at the NEC in Birmingham on the 4th and 5th of November, mew can get a 20% discount off your tickets, by using the code*:

  1. I hope the Pets Calm helps with Smoochie!

  2. Basil, you are an incredibly handsome boy ... but that look you've got while demanding dinner might haunt me! Bear doesn't understand kibble either ... I mean, it's FAKE food! If chickens or turkeys were meant to come that way, they would!

    1. Hiya MK, Bear & Ellie, that was funny, no don't let it haunt mew! MOL Yep dry stuff is totally FAKE!! MOL XOX

  3. Your P.A. is going to CatFest? She is SO lucky and our Mom is SO jealous! She thinks next year she'll have to plan a vacation to London. Oh, and waiting to be fed is wrong. You should get a lawyer.

    1. Hey Lola, yep the P.A. is going to catfest, your mom needs to get a ticket and come too!!! Yep I've instructed my lawyer as mew suggested, great idea!! XOX

  4. Sheesh, that was a too long one minute delay...hope you did get the right stuff and not just crunchies...

    I hope your PA has fun at those cat/pet events.

  5. Maybe that calming stuffs can be sprinkled on little human trick-or-treaters, too, if they get a little too crazy when they come to the door for treats?! Wow, I want to go to that London event! If only I could have Mom stroll me over from O-R-E-gon. Tee hee hee. Hugs!

    1. Hiya Valentine, MOL that's funny about the trick or treaters! Oh get a ticket and come to London, it'll be great! XOX

  6. How dare she keep you waiting, Basil. That "feed me, Seymour" look of yours is pretty haunting, for sure!
