Amber only goes outside when it's really warm and last week we had a couple of supurr warm days so Amber took a tentative foray under the gazebo, although it didn't last long and she was soon installed back on her sofa in the sitting room.


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

The effect was created with Befunky - Old Photo #12.

We also turned this fab arty-farty picture into a puzzle, so do stop by the puzzle page and take the Puzzle Challenge, see if mew can beat our time of 12 mins 34 secs.

Welcome To Friday Fluffers ~ Showcasing The Latest Batch of Photo Bloopers From The BBHQ Archives Starring Smooch, Parsley and Pandora ~ PLUS Friendly Fill-Ins & The Winner of Basil's Birthday Giveaway

Welcome to

Friday Fluffers withThe B Team @BionicBasil®

Happy Friyay Fab Pals

Welcome to our Friday Fluffers post where we showcase a selection of photo bloopers or photo fails from BBHQ, the photos that we thought would neffur see the light of day, buried deep, deep, deep in the archives on level 12 of our secret bunker, with no chance of effur being seen on the interwebs fur the wurld to see... UNTIL NOW!

Are mew ready fur some fun outtakes from The B Team? Of course, mew are!


And furst on the podium is Smooch the Yawping Heathen.

Melvyn had just leapfrogged over him while he'd been taking a leisurely bath, needless to say Smooch was not impurressed! MOL


Next up is Parsley and we did share this a few weeks ago on our Instagram feed, with the caption;

My Reaction To Peeps Who Don't Like Cats!!!

Friday Fluffers at BBHQ ©BionicBasil® Parsley's Reaction To Peeps Who Don't Like Cats

This does make us laugh; we can just imagine Parsley doing this, and he'd probably hawk up and deposit a large furball as well on anyone who doesn't like cats! MOL


And finally, Pandora's Manic Laugh.

Friday Fluffers at BBHQ ©BionicBasil® Pandora's Manic Laugh

Pandora is rather a complicated kitty, rather aloof and loves her own company, so when Fudge announced he was going to be more reserved when it came to his eating habits, Pandora cackled loudly and replied, "That'll be that day, and I'll remind mew of that when mew're muscling in on my dinner later!"

Sadly, Fudge's table manners are something to be desired; he tries to sample everyone's food just in case it may be different from his own which it's not, and he uses his floof to expertly manoeuvre himself in front of everyone's else dish for a quick nibble! MOL  

We're hoping that one day he'll just be catisfied with what's in front of him, though we're not holding our breath.

Also, purrlease can mew send Pandora some POTP as she was at the vets yesterday for some dental wurk and she had two fangies out, so she's now recovering back at BBHQ and is desperate to go outside but she can't.



This week we're also joining in Friday Fill-ins with the fabulous 15 & Meowing and Four-Legged Furballs.

1. I am overdue to _________.

2. I am so sick of _________.

3. _________ is a strange snack I like to eat.

4. _________ is one of the most random things I own.

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. I am long overdue to go on a bit of a jolly, I could really do with a vay-cay but don't see that happening at all.

2. I am so sick of a never-ending Jobs List or To-Do List; I seem to just tick one thing off and another three or four are added!

3. I don't have a strange snack I like to eat. Though I could snack on anything chocolate, ice cream, biscuits, crisps/chips, cake, pastries, sweets etc... but before you categorize me with a bad diet, I don't actually eat any of it, as snacks are off the menu completely and have been for quite a number of years. (Big sigh, and now I have written that, I'd really like to eat a jam, sugar-coated doughnut! Maybe one day!!! LOL) 

4. I can't decide as I'm a bit of a random collector, just this week I've acquired an antique tin trunk out of an auction - unseen too, and I'm waiting to take delivery! LOL   Two interesting things I can mention are; a 100 + year old ornate brass shop till/register in good working order, and a cast-iron number/engine plate off an old locomotive whose origin started here in the UK, then it went to South America where it had many, many decades of service for the mining industry until it finally came back to the UK a few years ago and I got the plate off it - the train was like the Hogwarts one, only not all shiny - these are a couple of the most random things I own, but there's oodles more at BBHQ.

What's in the Box? Petlibro Easy Feed 4L Automatic Pet Feeder Review

Welcome to

What's In The Box on In The Spotlight ©BionicBasil®

Wunderpurr greetings fabulous furiends

Today we're sharing one of our *sponsored posts with mew from the pawesome peeps at...


...who asked us if we'd like to trial their Easy Feed 4L Automatic Pet Feeder, and how could we resist anything that involves us getting food!



So let's show mew what was in the box.

What's In The Box ©BionicBasil® Petlibro Easy Feed Automatic Pet Feeder
Fudge was on paw to assist and couldn't wait to get the box open. In fact, all his overly eager enthusiasm actually slowed everything down, but finally, we got it open and the feeder out.

What a lovely compact unit!


Setting up 

It was supurr straightforward to set up, although mew do need 3 x D batteries.

The control panel allows mew to schedule up to 4 meals per day and also how much is dispensed per meal, which is great for portion control especially if mew looking to lose a little weight. 

There is also a facility to record up to a 10-second message that plays at designated mealtimes, which is fabulous when your human is out, so mew still get to know that your fresh and tasty meal has just been dispensed for eating at your leisure, even if mew're in another room. 

It took us about 10 minutes to get it completely set up and filled with our favourite Royal Canin kibble.

And Melvyn was on paw for the furst kibble dispensed into the bowl.

Melvyn really likes it; just look at the supreme catisfaction radiating from him.

#epicallyepic



Our closing thoughts

What we liked: 

Being able to schedule meals at multiple intervals throughout the day and/or night is really handy, and the kibble is easily dispensed and flows smoothly into the wide, shallow bowl - so no whisker squishing while eating, which is very impawtant. 

The 4L tank is plenty big enough, and the transparent-smoked plastic lid is really nifty for keeping an eye on the kibble levels inside, and as the lid is a secure fit, it means the food is safe from dust/airborne particles/fur and therefore stays fresher for longer—a huge plus in our book.  

It has a lovely long power cable, so mew're not restricted if your power outlets aren't in a completely convenient location; for instance, we wanted to use the feeder in the catservatory, and the nearest power outlet was at the other end of the room behind the 3-seater sofa, but there was ample cable to put the feeder where we wanted.

It's effortless to clean, the bowl can be detached and washed in the sink with warm soapy water, and the rest can be simply wiped with a damp cloth to keep things purrfectly hygienic.

The battery backup is a great idea; if mew ever experience any power outages, mew can be safe in the knowledge that your mealtime will be right on schedule, so total peace of mind no matter what, just make sure your hooman keeps it topped up! MOL 

Ease of use:

It was simple to set up using the control panel to set your mealtimes and the amount of dry food dispensed.

And should mew need to alter any of the settings, that is easily done too.

Mew can also do manual top-ups should more food be required. For instance, if some greedy cat not mentioning any names, FUDGE comes along and scoffs everything, leaving mew with nothing but crumbs. Just go and alert your staff and they can press a button on the control panel and fill the bowl to suit your current kibble needs. 

How it looked:

It a nice sized unit, not too large and not too small; in fact, we think it's in the Goldilocks zone of being just right for cats.

The mat white unit is really nice, and it also comes in black too.

This is a Totally Top Paw Product for cats, and we really love it.


We would like to say a special thanks to the pawesome peeps at Petlibro for giving us the oppurrtunity to try out their amazing Easy Feed 4L Automatic Pet Feeder ~ THANK MEW FURRY MUCH!
