Epic Wednesday Greetings Furriends

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

Furst up in the headlines this week is...

Cats Sleeping On The Job

It was Fudge's turn to write this weeks post, but he was found like this at 8pm last night.

He said, and I quote, "Dude, I just don't know what to write, nothing interesting happened this week, and I'm trying to think of something to share!"

"Oh dear," I replied as I quietly retreated from the BBHQ press office.

And the motto here is, let sleeping cats lie.

Next up, because I took back the proverbial reins this week and decided to the write post as I could see aftur finding Fudge draped across the keyboard in a creative stupor that if I left him to it, we'd have nothing to share at 12.30am! MOL

So next up this week, Smooch landed a big fish.

This week we took delivery of a rather large catnip catfish which Smooch immediately claimed as his own, citing he'd fished it out of the pond aftur a four-hour struggle to land it.

Well, who can argue with a story like that? 

Way to go Smooch, epic fishing skills dude!

And finally this week, Melvyn vs The Cactus.

As we're always looking for fun and exciting things to try at BBHQ, we were quite smitten when we came across this cactus scratch post, so we duly ordered one and here's a quick preview of Melvyn trying it out. We will review it more in-depth soon.

Luckily it's not prickly! MOL MOL
