8 Things About Melvyn

1.  Melvyn arrived at BBHQ on the 12th of January, although he didn't appear on the blog until our Valentines edition of Crafting with Cats, he was approximately one and a half years old when he arrived.
Melvyn and the catnip heart @BionicBasil® 8 Things About...
He was not used to having toys or catnip before he arrived at BBHQ, but he's been making up fur all of that since his arrival.

2. He really loves his furry orange carrot.

Melvyn and The Furry Carrot @BionicBasilĂ‚®

This is one of his favourite toys, the P.A. got it from the dudes at Katzenworld when she saw them at the Birmingham Pet Show last year - dudes if mew're reading this, we need another furry orange carrot stat! MOL 

3.  Melvyn is a little bit of a weirdo, want to know why? Of course mew do, just watch the video below...

See what we mean, what cat carries his collar? he doesn't even like to wear one, just play with it and he likes to take all of our collars too, and even the spare ones out of the tin!  Both Smooch and Fudge have lost collars to The Melvynator, one yellow and one green! OOPS MOL!

The Melvynator knows exactly where our collars are kept in the cupboard in the laundry when we're not wearing them, and the minute he hears a bell, he's there trying to collar-snatch our clothes!

4.  He has the most golden eyes we've effur seen. Seriously they're like glowing citrines, just look...

5. Melvyn is like the Harry Potter of Cats, instead of a lightning bolt scar on his forehead, he has a lightning bolt of white fur down his back, so this is definitive proof that Melvyn also survived  Voldemort ~ Fluffing Fluff, that's seriously hardcore dude!

6.  Melvyn has a lovely temperament and is such a happy little camper, much like me his, great, great, great, great uncle Basil, take a look at this... mew can feel the happies radiating from him!

7.  Melvyn was originally called Malcolm, although we felt this didn't suit him at all so he promptly got a new name. And yes, he's also called The Melvynator, like The Terminator only better! MOL

and finally...

8. This was Melvyn's furry furst day at BBHQ... typical Fudge...

MOL, it only got better from there on in! 

Melvyn has settled in beautifully and has made a wunderful addition to The B Team.  He'll be starting at our Kitty Kommando Academy soon, as he's still not been into the bunker and guess who's in charge of his training? 

And that sadly brings us to the end of 8 Things About young Melvyn, we do hope mew enjoyed getting to learn a little more about my nephew.  But if mew have a specific question about him, ask us in the comments and we'll reply.

If mew missed our previous '8 Things About' posts, here are the links:
