*waves paw*

Hello gorgeous library guests and welcome to my private library

OH MY GOSH I can't believe we're on the Catmas Countdown and it's day 6 already, not long now, and just so we know exactly how long it is to the big day, we got the P.A. a rather cute advent calendar, as she has no concept of time at the moment, let alone what day it is! MOL

Now I know that mew know I've got my Scrumble's Charity Advent Calendar, but I've got that stashed away due to one or more heathens trying to get their mittens on the deliciousness behind every window; not mentioning any names Melvyn and Fudge.  

Therefore I can't leave it anywhere in the public areas at BBHQ so to keep the festivities alive Parsley furry kindly offered - well actually he had no choice, as I took sorry, borrowed his credit card while he was napping and purrchased the P.A. this completely fantastic Hello Kitty advent calendar.

And behind each door is a mini OPI nail polish, and these are the colours so far, how epic, EPICALLY EPIC!

The P.A. was supurr happy, and I scored endless brownie points - YAY for me! 

Oh guys I have to go, Parsley's just seen his credit card statement and wants to know whose been shopping... I may have forgot to mention I did buy myself a few... erm well actually a lot of new books too, well I couldn't help myself... mew know what I'm like, I have zero control and restraint where books are concerned!

Anyhoo, I'll be locked in the library if anyone needs me, so I think it's time to share this weeks book! MOL

A Very Merry Cranberry 



(with purrs from Timmy Book 2)

**Furstly I have to let mew all know that I was given a free copy of this book in exchange fur a fair review**

Here's A Small Snippet of the Book Blurb:      

Once upon a time there was a very ordinary cranberry.

So begins the first of Timmy’s two tales for Christmas. In the second one, Timmy receives a gift that he does not want. Not at all. But then he makes an unexpected discovery.

Timmy’s new book will most certainly make you smile at least once.


Now mew may remember I reviewed another really cute book by Timmy in September, so click here for a quick recap.

A Very Merry Cranberry is really fun, great for all ages; especially younger readers who love cats, and it would make a lovely gift for Catmas.  There are two short stories, both humorous and cute, with accompanying photo's of Timmy, who is one seriously handsome mancat, if only I were a decade younger... but I digress, if mew love cats and books this is a winner, and I can't wait to see if he writes some more.

So if mew're looking for a cute book to make mew smile and bring a little joy to your day, this could be just what mew're looking for. And if mew want a delightful gift, this is it.

Follow Timmy at @pix_kardz on instacat and if mew're quick, he's got a little give-away happening, but hurry because it ends on the 7th Dec, please check terms and conditions on the relevant post if mew decide to enter

I'd like to day many very thanks to Timmy for sending me a dedicated copy of A Very Cranberry Christmas, and if mew're ever in Mewton-Clawson do stop by the library for tea.

Until next time

Keep calm and read on

Farewell Lil Bub, Fudge and Melvyn Catch A Ray and Smooch's Courtyard Excursion on The Pet Parade 329 with Dash Kitten, Barking from the Bayou and US!

The Pet Parade Winter Banner 2019
Wednesday salutations fab pals

Welcome to our mid-week news round-up, and this week we kick off with furry sad news.

Most of mew will of heard by now that interwebs cat sensation Lil Bub has departed offur The Rainbow Bridge, she was only 8.  Apparently she got her wings and passed peacefully in the night while asleep next to her dad.  The wurld has lost another beautiful soul, though we know this special angel will neffur be furgotten.

Farewell Lil Bub, may mew rest in peace sweet one.

 In other news...

Woo hoo December is here and we're waiting for our new Catmas tree to arrive, which we'll be decorating with some special things, oh my just wait until mew see what we've been making, but more on that soon. #TEASER

Now let's talk cats....

Fudge and Melvyn caught a ray of sunshine yesterday morning, it was fleeting but even so they really enjoyed it! MOL

Our home aka converted barn doesn't have furry large windows, so this time of year it can feel quite gloomy inside if the days are grey and offurcast, that's why we love it when the sun does peek out, even if it's just fur a moment.

And finally in between the rain, freezing fog and super chill weather Smooch managed to get out in the courtyard for a brief spell.

It's been so damp everywhere; the trees have been dripping, the gutters have been dripping, everything's been dripping, we could do with a week or two of nice, dry crisp weather, so if any of mew have that variety purrlease feel free to send some to Mewton-Clawson stat! MOL

Though Smooch didn't mind the drips in the slightest as he checked to see if the magic shrooms were behaving, as he did a perimeter sweep on his way into the main garden. 

If mew've missed any of the posts offur the last week, here's the catch up links:

Amber will be here on Friday with a fantastic book she can't wait to share with mew all, so do stop by the library, tea and nip cookies will be served, and we hope to see mew then!

Colouring with Cats ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays ©BionicBasil®

Supurr Monday greetings fab pals

Did mew have a good weekend, and have mew recovered from Thanksgiving if mew were celebrating? 

This weekend at BBHQ Melvyn didn't want to OM alone, he felt quite sad and was wundering who to ask, just look at his little face.... 😿  

He said to The P.A. "I'm still quite new to this OMing thing and don't feel furry confident, but then I feel silly asking for help!"

"Oh Melyvn, don't ever feel silly about asking for help," The P.A. replied. "I know the purrfect kitty to help you today, just ask Smooch, he's the best teacher ever."

A while later in the Sky Lounge... OMing in Harmony...

OMing in pairs is so much better, so say Smooch and Melvyn.

Anyhoo, we do hope that mew're ready fur the week ahead, so let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Smooch is here again to offur mew assistance in getting your OM's on and Zen Harmonies happening, so just press play, close your eyes and follow his instructions.

Don't mew feel better already?  I know we do!

All the mandala's featured are created & designed by us, unless otherwise stated.

And the little madam didn't even have a bit of a brush before she took her selfie, the utter shame of it, and said she really liked the texture of her uber furriness and thought it brought depth and character to the pose. PAH!

We just think she's a little sasquatch! MOL  

We're also joining in the lovely Athena's Art Hop so do stop by and show off your pawesome arty-farty skills.

This effect was created with Befunky - Cartoonizer DLX

We also turned this pawesome arty-farty picture into a puzzle, so do stop bu the puzzle page and see if mew can beat our time of 9 mins 54 secs.  Slightly slower than last weeks! MOL

Anyhoo it's time for us to go and get in the sitting room in front of the fire as it's been rather chilly here again, so we do hope mew have a totally terrific day and we'll see mew on the morrow with a Colouring with Cats post if mew have time to stop by.

Wishing mew lots of snoozy snuggles
