The Gorgeous Colours of Autumn/Fall with Smooch.

As we were waiting for dad to come home on Friday evening, Smooch got himself firmly ensconced on the P.A.'s lap in the catservatory for a cuddle, and that's when we really noticed how much the acacia tree in the courtyard had changed.  

Mew know when mew see things every day, and mew're always dashing here, there and everywhere mew don't always notice what's right under your schnozzle? This happens at BBHQ, though while sat taking a few moments we thought what a lovely shade of gold the leaves had turned, well most of them are on the floor, but that's a job for the P.A. as that's not our department! MOL

Anyhoo, our point is; isn't it absolutely beautiful out in nature right now?  And if mew hadn't noticed, go take a quick look, mew'll be so glad mew did.

Next up in the news this week.

Yesterday Parsely was insistent that he had a stroll in the garden and got some fresh air, so off he pootled while the P.A. and dad did a spot of painting upstairs. A short while later he was stood at the catservatory door asking to come back indoors, and he came dashing inside the minute it opened, and that's when we noticed this...

His fur looked like it had been sprinkled with diamonds from the supurr fine drizzle outside. 

Amber, being as crotchety as ever from her higher vantage point on the sofa, said, "It looks like really bad dandruff, snowflake!" 

Well, the rest of us thought it looked rather sparkly, so Amber was out-voted, though Parsely didn't reckon much at all to it and promptly parked himself in front of the woodburner to let it evaporate.

We still thought it was an epic effect.

And finally this week, Melvyn is supurr excited to go trick or treating in Mewton-Clawson on Caturday, he's chosen the bandana he'll be wearing and thinks wearing this one will bring him the biggest rewards from the local residents.

Unbeknown to Melvyn, Fudge has also launched his own Trick or Treat campaign, he thinks he's going to outdo Melvyn and get all the village catnip for himself, OH MY COD, I can see this is going to end in disaster! MOL MOL
