Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furiends

Welcome to Easter Monday, we hope mew had a lovely day yesterday and managed to do something that mew wanted.

The P.A. and dad had a lovely Sunday lunch from our local pub (50 yards away from our driveway) as they're doing takeaway meals since they've been closed to the public, and it's furry impawtant to support local businesses while we're in this lockdown situation. Plus there are no supermarket deliveries at all; seriously mew'd have more chance of a purple glitter unicorn ridden by an elven princess popping up in your sitting room than mew would of actually getting a food delivery in the UK right now.  There aren't even any click and collect slots either, but the good news is there's toilet paper available!

There's food on the supermarket shelves, but who really wants to risk it without PPE, plus there's the added bonus of the police pulling you over, searching your purrchases and fining mew for trying to get through this with a bottle of wine a packet of crisps/chips.  When the P.A. and dad we're returning from their wurk premises last week, they saw a car being pulled over by the cops just outside their business - it really is strange times.

That was the P.A.'s furst journey out into the real wurld for offur 4 weeks, she's not been to a supermarket since the furst week in March and if we don't get supplies soon we'll be eating dust with a smattering of dust on the side! 

We used to buy a few things off Amazon but that's full of eveeel covid-profiteers; the P.A.'s mum bought what she thought was 3 x big bags of cat food and was charged £54, when they finally arrived, it was 3 x 825g small boxes of Go-Cat kibble that actually would cost £2.99 tops each - £9 worth at most.  The seller refuses to take them back and Amazon is doing nothing.  The P.A. also saw that a box of 12 Felix pouch's which usually costs £2.99, people are selling them for £12.99 - it is disgusting that Amazon is letting this happen.  

Anyhoo, let's lower the stress levels 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!

  1. Oh, what a pretty mandala! All those colorful Easter Eggs!

    Sorry you got hit with price gouging.

    We don't think a cop would pull anyone over just to see/inquire what they are out and about for, unless they were also doing a traffic violation stoppage. Having said that, petcretary does have a paper from her work verifying the fact that she must be out sometimes to go to her work.

  2. Grocery delivery slots are impossible to get here also. Two nights I waited until just before midnight and got in a queue for when some more are supposed to become available. Both times when I got to the front of the queue and the website magically appeared, I immediately tried to book a slot but there were still none available! Why hold you in a queue and there are still no slots there!
    The police have been stopping cars here. Yesterday I saw on the news that they stopped a car in Torquay at 5 am with a family that had come down from London to do some fishing! They must have thought if they travelled overnight they would get away with it. They were fined and escorted back out of Devon.
    I am sorry that your mum got ripped off on Amazon. I hope Karma visits all of those who make money out of others at these desperate times.
    Apart from that, I hope you are all having a good Easter.

  3. We love your Eater mandala ! Grocery delivery is possible if you order three weeks in advance ; our human goes once a week to the grocery store. She has to wait in line, then sanitize hands and caddy, and goes as fast as possible. Purrs

  4. I always enjoy your breathing videos. Well done.

    Love the coloring too. Very beautiful and very colorful.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥

  5. Hope you had a lovely Easter and are staying healthy!

  8. That is wrong that Amazon allows that. Very nice Easter mandala. XO

  9. That is wrong that Amazon allows that. Very nice Easter mandala. XO

  10. My friend bought 2 bottles of bleach off Amazon for $20 and all that arrived was an envelope with tiny Clorox bottle stickers! Those bad profiteers will get what's coming to them eventually! You're right, we need to BREATHE - thanks!

  11. That's a pretty one! Easter eggs!

  12. I haven't made a coloring with cats in a while! Already printed this one out :) Thanks!

  13. That is a terrific Easter Mandala, mew guys. We're sorry you're having trouble getting the items you need. Shame on those sellers and Amazon!

    Hugs to you all.
