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

Furst up in the headlines and most impawtant this week is...

Remember Me Thursday 

Since 2013, the 24th of September has been dedicated to Remember Me Thursday highlighting the impawtance of pet adoption and to shine a light on all those poor, little orphan pets stuck in shelters waiting for their furever homes. 

To find out more about how mew can help or get involved, check out their website here:


If mew are looking for a new furry buddy purrlease check out your local shelters furst, we're purretty certain mew will find your anipal twin flame or soul mate there.

And if mew're in the UK and are looking to adopt a kitty, check out, and if mew're looking for a lovely K9 buddy check out this google search: dog adoption uk to help mew on your way.

There are so many anipals in desperate need of a kind, loving furever home, and if mew can change just one life for the better that would be truly epic. 

We, The B Team except for Smooch and Amber, are all former shelter cats that no-one wanted, and by not wanted we were there the longest. Luckily for us, the P.A. has always adopted the ones that were left behind; I, Basil had four homes in my furst two years, until one day while sitting in an outdoor pen at the rescue and feeling very depressed along came the P.A., she took one look at me and said, and I quote, "I'll take him!" and I never looked back and that goes for all of us. 

So maybe if mew do go to a rescue or shelter, purrhaps just ask who's been there the longest or who's been returned for whatever reason, and see if mew're the one they've been waiting for.

Adopt Don't Shop, and change a life today.

In other news this week, sorry we're a day late with The Pet Parade, things just sort of got away from us and here we are, but it wurked out purrfectly for Remember Me Thursday so we can say it was serendipity! MOL  

Well, we can't believe it's autumn/fall already and Melvyn is getting supurr excited as that means Halloween isn't too far away, just look at that face, is he loving the autumn vibe or what?

And as mew can see we've got all-new graphics, we're very seasonal and orangey for sure.

Finally this week...

If mew remember we posted Part One of our epic pirate adventure on Caturday, see link below for Meow Like A Pirate Day; just so mew know we're not going to re-run all the episodes this year - mew will read why in the gossip below - but if mew want to read our totally ameowzing adventure at the end of each post is a link to go straight to the next episode so essentially mew can read the entire story in one sitting if mew like.  

We did last week and we loved it, those cannibal tortoises still crack us up! MOL
