BBHQ The B Team Sunday Selfies @BionicBasil ®

Fabulous greetings pawesome pals

Welcome to another selfie selection and today our theme is:

 Melvyn's Supurr Green Selfie

Melvyn loves going out in the garden, although he only goes out when snoopervised as he's a bit of a liability, i.e: he launches himself like a ballistic missile up the Scotch pine in the corner of the garden and hangs out up there like a hungry buzzard waiting for prey, then aftur a while he gets bored when no prey appears willingly, then he'll bounce between the branches like he's on springs and stop on the one just above the fence. He'll slowly edge along the branch and breach the perimeter fence and head off on an adventure to cod knows where. Last time this happened he came home naked aka collarless and wet through!  Aftur that he had all outside privileges revoked and he's only just been allowed outside again...

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

We're really loving this burnt orange and pink effect, with a splash of lime, it's furry zingy! MOL

The effect was created with Befunky - Underpainting DLX + colour changes to hue and saturation.

We also turned this fab arty-farty picture into a puzzle, so do stop by the puzzle page and see if mew can beat our time of 7 mins 11 secs.  Only slightly quicker than last weeks! MOL

Just before we pop off, Fudge sends oodles of thanks for all the wonderful birthday greetings last week and says don't forget that next Caturday it's his joint pawty with today's selfie star, young Melvyn who will be 3!

Anyhoo it's time for us to go on a supurr quick kitty patrol around the garden before the gusty weather blows our fur all SQUIFFY, so we do hope mew have a totally terrific day and look forward to seeing mew on the morrow when we're back with another episode of The Monday Meow.

Wishing mew lots of snoozy snuggles

  1. Mrs H says in the olden days, they used to annex countries and land if they wanted more space. Maybe the Melvdude has plans on expanding Basil's kingdom and make a new name for himself? Melv the Magnificent! Of course maybe it's all a result of binge watching Game of Thrones, and those Mission Impossible movies?

  2. Belated Happy Purrday Fudge. Melvyn, we don't blame you for exploring has to stay in your own yard it's one of those weird human rules. MOL everyone but Yin (and Fenris) escapes over the backyard fence. Now their is a hotwire around some of it. But us cats do stay in our yard. Perhaps one day Daddy will fence in the entire property.

  3. Great garden selfie, Melvyn ! Purrs

  4. You look terrific in green Melvyn but behave out there!

  5. We really love that Gorgeous Green Selfie Melvyn. Our Rumpy Bump was a wanderer so Dad got the Cat Fence and now all is good. Purrs

  6. Melvyn, what a naughty kitty you were - snoopervision is required to keep your sweet self safe and sound. Enjoy your green time and thanks for the beautiful art today!

  7. Nice garden selfie, Melvyn! Be safe out there, okay?

  8. Oh Bast, I (Laz) would LUV to go out an sit in a tree and come back wet and smelly!

    What happens out there, stays out there!

  10. Nice selfie. Thank you for the puzzle. I look forward to doing it. XO

  11. Gosh I just hate it when the peeps take away our privileges. I DON'T CARE IF IT'S FOR MY OWN GOOD! Peeps can be such... Well... Peeps. MOUSES! (PS. I lost a couple privileges myself, last Thursday. I feel your pain. purrs)

  12. Melvyn! You are a machine and a raving lunatic. Sorry but my cats applaud you wildly and with total admiration, except for the wobbly branch part......

  13. That is a nice selfie, Melvyn, and I love the colours of your art.

  14. You are quite the rascal, Melvyn!! Be careful or even the birthday pawrty may be revoked for an extended time...sort of like the lockdown the peeps have been dealing with.
    That puzzle looks like it might be a challenge, but I do love the pretty colors!

  15. Very Nice Green Garden selfie Melvyn. We'll try to make the pawty.

  16. You're such a cute kitty Melvin. We love your garden Selfie😎Pawkisses for a wonderful week ahead🐾😽💞
