It's Pawty Time  @BionicBasil® 2019


As most of mew will know Fudge and Melvyn had to postpone their pawty's because of the P.A.'s accident - yes very selfish of her to fall through a ceiling like that - but anyhoo she's still recovering, having good days and bad days, but at least she survived it.

But we digress, so we're having a joint pawty today.

Happy Birthday Dudes Mewton-Clawson Cats The B Team Pawty @BionicBasil®

Today Parsley is 7

Melvyn was 2 on 4th July

and Fudge was 4 on 21st June

Many thanks to our supurr epically epic pals Pipo, Dalton and Benji fur sending us these truly pawesome Birthday cards...

Dudes, thank mew so much we love them! 


Earlier in the day...

We got all paws on deck decorating the garden, which was snoopervised by our resident Feline fashionista aka Pandora... 

Basil and Pandora  @BionicBasil® 2019

Then Smooch decided to join me under the gazebo... where we had a deep and meaningful discussion on whether we needed any more red balloons or more blue balloons, which thoroughly wore us out and then we needed to another take a quick nap! 

Basil, Smooch and Pandora  @BionicBasil® 2019

Though a short while later, it all started to come together...

Then we got a couple of vintage vehicles out of storage from level 12 in the bunker, and next to arrive was the atlas crane sent by the P.A.'s brother fur bungee jumping.  It hadn't been parked fur more than a minute when Smooch just had to get all offur it, what a total heathen and Fudge couldn't wait fur his turn! [OMC, I can see this is going to get rapidly out of control! MOL]

Pawty activities  @BionicBasil® 2019

Pandora really loved the vintage car and got dressed appropriately fur a sedate drive around Mewton-Clawson with our guests.  So anypurrdy that wants to go 'Driving with Miss Dora'  do shout up, as I think she'll be quite in demand this evening!

Plus, fantastic news; Angels Humphrey, Snowie and Posie turned up just as we'd got set up on the lawn.

The lights came on as it got darker just as our fab furriends began to arrive from all offur the wurld...

Doesn't it look purretty?

So pawesome pals grab a hat, we've already got ours! MOL

Get some cake!
The Nip Bar is OPEN!
Have a drink! 
Who wants to go Tank Driving?


Don't panic guys, I've not touched a drop of Smooch's lethal Mindbender nip cocktail, so I'll be your designated tank driver tonight, all-a-board fur oodles and oodles of fun, and don't tell the P.A. but we might go blow some stuff up, just because we can! MOL 

Also we're offuring another 'one time only guided tour fur 2019' of our secret bunker, though we did start pawtying in there earlier aftur our epic angel fursibs arrived, sorry about the mess - OOPS - if mew're feeling a bit peckish Humphrey can whip mew something up in his lab, yes, it doubles up as his purrsonal kitchen when he pops in to visit and he invented an A.I. replicator that can make anything mew want.

 So fur all those guests who would like oodles of bacon with their bacon butties, bacon pies and bacon burgers mew are definitely in the right place, and put your paw in the air so he can fulfill that bacon, with bacon, with extra bacon on the side with bacon sprinkles on top order just fur mew!

Basil's Birthday in the bunker @BionicBasil® 2019

Oh just a quick warning during the tour, if mew feel an uncontrollable urge to push any RED BUTTONS that are clearly marked DO NOT PUSH - purrlease heed the warning as we don't want the dragon to escape again, or anything else fur that matter! MOL

And don't wurry about the kraken either, K.D. aka Kraken-Dude is on level 8 with Horice and all the creatures from the alternate dimension in the Bio-sphere, so we'll be missing out on that level due to health and safety protocols as K.D.'s lessons in 'A Krakens Guide To Adapting To The 21st Century' are still going a wee bit sloooooooow and he hasn't quite grasped that he can't just randomly eat whateffur and wheneffur he feels like it. 
Help yourselves to nibbles!
Get some pudding!

Smooch and Parsley   @BionicBasil® 2019




The give-way is open wurld-wide** as usual, and all mew have to do is leave a comment below.  We'll do the draw fur the winner next Friday at 5pm, so mew have until then to enter and we'll post the winner on the next post we share!

And what's the prize, we hear mew ask?

Well, as all our pawesome regulars know, our give-aways are epically epic and we like to surprise mew with a little goodie bag with delightful things fur mew and your hooman.

[**Unless mew're in one of those countries that aren't allowed to join in. Mew know who mew are!]


Prizes are as stated and no substitutes or cash prizes will be substituted.  The rules are clear, so purrlease abide by them.

We do hope mew all have an EPIC time at the pawty, and if mew need to chill we have allocated the Crystal Room as the zen-zone, so mew can have a snooze, take five or just crash completely.

Luffs mew all loads

Welcome To Friday Fluffers ~ Showcasing The Best Photo Bloopers From BBHQ Starring Melvyn's Under Carriage, Smooch's Mousetashe and Pandora's Nelephant Derriere

Welcome to

Friday Fluffers withThe B Team @BionicBasil®

Happy Friyay Fab Pals

Welcome to our Friday Fluffers post where we showcase a selection of photo bloopers or photo fails from BBHQ, the photos that we thought would neffur see the light of day, buried deep, deep, deep in the archives on level 12 of our secret bunker, with no chance of effur being seen on the interwebs fur the wurld to see... UNTIL NOW!

Are mew ready fur some fun outtakes from The B Team? Of course mew are!

This will be our last Fluffers fur a while as Amber starts back with her book reviews and book club next week, so we bet mew're so excited about that! MOL

And furst on the podium is Melvyn's Under Carriage; Parsley said to Melvyn, "Dude the P.A. and dad call mew Solid Melvyn, is that because mew've got a chubby tummy?"

Melvyn's Mirror Image @BionicBasil® Friday Fluffers

This was the only way Melvyn could see if his under carriage had expanded.

Aftur checking his mirror image, he said to Parsley, "Hey my tummy is not chubby, I've got an eight pack hidden under all this supurr-soft fluff dude!"

Next up is Smooch's Mousetashe; he wanted to know if he'd look rather dashing with an Errol Flynn vibe happening, so he got in the coal heap and drew one on but only on one side! 

Smooch's Mousetashe @BionicBasil® Friday Fluffers

We think he looks more like Smoocule Poirrot! MOL MOL 

And finally Pandora didn't know that Smooch and Parsley stuck some boggle eyes on her derriere - OOPS!

Pandora's Nelephant Derriere @BionicBasil® Friday Fluffers

They called her Nellie fur weeks aftur - she was not amewsed.

We do hope mew enjoyed today's pics and do join us again tomorrow when we're celebrating 3 birthdays in one, so do stop by as we're having a little give-away too.

Until then...

Keep calm, and purr on

The Sewing Machine Broke, Smooch's Tough Design Choices and The Cat From Quality Control - Says YES! on The Pet Parade 315 with Dash Kitten, Barking from the Bayou and US!

The Pet Parade Summer Banner

Pawesome Wednesday Greetings Furriends

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

What a week; we were making a few more snuggle mats and the sewing making started to smoke, so we had to take evasive action, get the fire extinguisher and put it out and the P.A. too who was using it at the time.  No she wasn't smoking it was just unfortunate fur her! MOL MOL [she wasn't impressed, though we think she should be grateful fur our swift thinking and action].

So anyhoo the machine is broken, we have to take it to see if it can be repaired this week, but the good news is, we have another one so the snuggle mat production line didn't get interrupted - WOOO HOOOO!

Smooch's Tough Design Choices

As chief designer this week at BBHQ, Smooch has had some really tough design choices to make, such as;  what colour pom pom trim to use on the snuggle mats, what size pom pom trim to use on the snuggle mats and what fabric to make the snuggle mats from - woah too much pressure fur sure!

Smooch's Tough Design Choices on The Pet Parade @BionicBasil®

At this point Smooch was a rock in a hard place and didn't know if he wanted to use the mustard yellow pom pom trim or the purple, like we used fur HRH Erin's mat. Choices, choices.... aftur an awful lot of deliberation he chose the purple.

**Meanwhile in another part of BBHQ**

The Cat from Quality Control - Says YES!

Melvyn is supurr focused when he's wearing his Quality Control Officers hat; just look at that intense concentration, nothing will distract him from his job - well a pile of primo catnip would but apart from that he's incredibly dedicated to the task at paw.

Melvyn Quality Testing on The Pet Parade @BionicBasil® QCO BBHQ

He likes to test things such as:-  mat comfort and size, overall springiness, fabric quality, fabric softness/smoothness/type, pom poms etc... its a furry involved job but it is rather rewarding especially when mew get pawesome feedback from extremely catisfied customers.

"Smooch, this one is a pass!" Melvyn shouted before he added it to the growing pile... see below.

 Snuggle Mats on The Pet Parade @BionicBasil®

These are the ones we've made this week.

If mew missed anything offur the last week, here's the latest posts fur your purrusal:
