Pawesome Greetings Furriends

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

Our headline this week is...

Oh My, It's May!

We can't believe it's the 6th of May already, what happened, it's like time is speeding up.  Sorry, we've been a little quiet, it's been a bit weird the last few weeks with one thing and another and then the P.A. hasn't been feeling that great; she's suffering from an acute bout of apathy right now and her normal joy factor is on the fritz a little.  But so it goes, our peeps do go through different stages of life and adjustments need to be made, and it's all whether mew go with the tide or try to fight it, the P.A. is on the least resistant path but that means she's in a bit of a funk, so do bear with us while we address the issue and get her motivated.

In other news...

The last couple of weeks we've seen a lot of new butterflies in the garden and this is one of them; an Orange Tip, it's so hard to get a good picture of them as they always fluttering here, there and effurywhere! MOL

 And finally this week, on Friday it's VE Day. so to help get the P.A. out of her funk we said she needed to make a banner to mark the 75 years since the end of WWII.  And although celebrations can't be held in their usual capacity we thought that we'd still decorate and have our own pawty and send oodles of gratitude and thanks to all those who did what needed to be done back in the day.

As there wasn't any bunting to be bought in time, patriotic Parsley insisted that some mini flags were made and luckily for him the P.A. had some felt in stock in red, white and blue.

Parsley takes his role as Quality Control Officer furry seriously as mew can see below; he's making sure that the mini flags are well made and are up to scratch!

We'll be decorating tomorrow ready for Friday so we'll post the picture of the big banner then, and if mew're in the UK or Europe are mew doing anything to mark this special occasion?

  1. We hope that your P.A. gets defunked soon, we're all sending hugs!

  2. Parsley is a great quality control officer. Good looking too.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your mom. ♥

  3. I have seen some of those Orange Tips here this year too. Years ago I used to see them a lot, then they seemed to disappear. It is nice to see them back again.
    If you can get the PA out of her funk can you come down here and help me get out of mine too?
    It doesn't help that we should be on day 3 of our cruise too.

  4. Thank you for hosting the parade. XO

  5. Sorrty the P.A. is in that funk. Could you maybe give her some snuggles and headbonks to help her out? And maybe let her know we send purrs and hugs?

    That orange tip butterfly is beautiful!
