Pawesome Wednesday Greetings Furriends

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

Furst up this week is... Cats in Sinks!

Amber used to be the resident sink cat, but that was many, many moons ago and since then no-purrdy has really been interested. Then out of the blue the other day Parsley decided to claim the title, so here's the latest sink cat picture from BBHQ! MOL

I'm so NOT impurressed with your snipping skillz!

The other day the P.A. gave the catmint a bit of a trim and Smooch was not a happy camper when he saw how much had been trimmed, then he had an epic cat-niption when he found out that the P.A. had composted it! #OOPS MOL

Also in the news this week, we've had a bit of a blog tidy up and moved some stuff around to try and speed up the loading of the blog.

So we've made two new pages:-

The Weekly Blog Hops Page


The Awards Page

This has freed up a lot of space from the footer and removed a lot of graphics, so the home page should be quicker now. We found that Microsoft Edge loads quickest, followed by Firefox and then Chrome is the slowest, go figure, mew'd think Chrome would be supurr zingy as its owned by Google who owns the Blogspot platform!

Anyhoo if we've missed any hops off the new blog hops page, let us know in the comments and we'll add them.

Dating Apps Just Got Feline Friendly

And finally this week, we read a news article in our Apple newsfeed the other day that was all about a dating app for cat lovers, yes really it's true, there's a dating app for cat peeps!  It was launched on International Cat Day, 8th August 2020.

Click here to read the article on or go directly to Tabby at the cat purrsons dating app. It is available on ios now, and the android platform is coming soon, so they've got mew covered.

They are also featuring new products and toys for cats, and for all those cat peeps looking for lurve mew no longer have to wurry about sifting through oodles of 'non-cat liking peeps' plus mew can add your kitties details too in order to get matches #pawesome!

**FYI this is not an endorsed or affiliated article, we shared it because we wanted to.**

  1. Good job Parsley! MOL, a dating app with toys, too funny!

  2. Parsley and Smooch, you both look great. Hey, Smooch, did Mum at least give you some of the trimmings?

  3. Parsley, how neat that you have discovered the joys of 'sink-sitting'.
    I don't do it,m but the first kitty here, Groucho, did it all the time.

    Smoochie, you do look concerned over the loss of some of that precious, petcretary chops ours down at intervals and puts it into the holes that Benji digs...sheesh!

  4. Eric was our sink sitter until it got too tight a fit, then he graduated to the bath.
    I imagine it feels nice and cool in there in this hot weather, Parsley.
    Poor Smooch looks quite displeased at the disappearance of some of the nip.

  5. I love sink kitties. That's an art you know.

    Have a purrfect day. Scritches to all the kitties and my best to your mom. ♥

  6. I hop into the sink but just to tell Dad to hurry and get breakfast ready. The blog loads fast with Chrome

  7. Lexy used to sit in the sink all the time! She hasn't in a while though.

  9. Smooch, aren't you cats supposed to be be trimming the catmint yourselves...with your teefs?!?
    Parsley, at a quick glance, it looks like you are in the LOO! MOL MOL MOL!
    Nice update; I have to do something of the same; I was hoping to work on it during this lockdown, but gosh, it's only been five months....

  10. Mudpie loves hopping in the sink! Here beloved water is in there!

  11. Parsley is so beautiful! Reminds me of our adopted feral kitty Binx, who has -- after 6 years -- adopted another neighborhood family! Go figure! With regards to the Blog Hops - could you also add our FiveSibes #WaitingWednesday (spotlight on rescues & rescue stories) Blog Hop and our #FlashbackFriday (photos from yesterday or yesteryear) are both back! I'd be happy to send badges! Many Thanks!!!

  12. We look forward to Black Cat Appreciation Day. XO

    Parsley you are a magnificent sink cat.
