It's HOT HOT HOT, The Catnip Crop Is Drying & Where Cats Roam on the Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 255 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Pawesome Friday Greetings Furriends

Welcome to the Pet Parade and our weekly news round up!

It is absolutely SCORCHIO here, it's fantastic although we could do with some regular rainfall between the hours of 12am to 5am nightly as some of our trees are shedding leaves its that dry.

So what's been happening in Mewton-Clawson we hear mew ask... well the runner beans have been decimated by slugs & snails and the peas are not that great either, don't ask about the tomatoes or lettuce and definitely not the purple broccoli. The P.A. has bought some extra slug traps which mew fill with beer, yep those slugs & snails are going to get mightily drunk, though sadly it's too late fur this years crop, but at least we'll be ready fur next year and the P.A. is going to make a new veg garden down the side of the house where it gets all the afternoon sun, so we'll be sharing that with mew when she gets started on it.

And this is what we've been doing all week in rotation! MOL

In other news the furst cut of catnip is drying under the carport, we've got four big bunches hanging and we're nearly ready fur a second cut once the flowers are out.

If mew're getting low on your catnip stash mew know where to come.

So it seems the veg garden is a total bust this year but the catnip crop is definitely bumper! MOL

Also before we pop off, we got an email the other day from the fab peeps at GoCompare asking if we would share this fun graphic from their blog post called: Where Cats Roam, and taking a look at it how could we say no! MOL

Mew can see the entire post at their blog [link below], it's pawesome!

and if mew're still bored get our free colouring books below:

Pandora will be here tomorrow with another Fashion with Felines post and then we'll be back with our usual selfie selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then, in the meantime we wish mew all an epic weekend

Bestest purrs and big hugs

  1. How awesome that you are beginning to harvest your catnip! Ours needs some cutting back at the moment.

  2. I'm sorry about the veggie garden and those rotten slugs, but I'm glad your catnip crop is doing so well - and really, isn't that the most important crop of any season?? LOL!! Enjoy it!

  5. Sorry about the veggie crop but it sounds as if the main thing is that the catnip is plentiful. ☺

  6. Isn't it lucky that slugs and snails don't seem to like the nip! Sorry about the veggies though.

  7. Way too hot here even to play with catnip! What you need is a squadron of blackbirds to sort them pesky slugs and bugs and snails out. My nip turned out to be lemon balm! Yup I got fleeced by that travelling seed salesperson. Lemon nip, anyone?

  8. I HATE slugs. But buying them a few rounds!? Hehehehehehe.

  9. Slugs are such awful creatures. I am glad they left the nip alone :)XO

  10. Too bad that your garden has taken a beating from the heat! Especially your cat nip!
    And slugs...yuck...
    Mom does not mind the garden variety anymore since she encountered Banana Slugs on Vancouver Island!

  11. Petcretary has nip in her garden, lots of it...and when she brings it to me I ignore it mostly! Sheesh she says, but I love the pot of yeow cat nip!! MOL! I am one strange kitty...yup!
