Woo Hoo Pawsome Pals

Smooch here, and how are mew doing today?

So dudes and dudettes we're going to be Smooching Around the Wurld, how much fun, so much fun!

And because The B Team doesn't use conventional means of travel, I'll be using the TTTB aka the Time Travelling Telephone Box to go on my little jolly's, so thank cod I won't have to use an airport as I don't think I'd get through security with all the extra covert hardware I travel with, and I've just heard that the U.K.'s airports are all closed anyway.

Furst though I have to do my travel checklist:

I've already had all my travel vaccinations, as mew neffur know and I always think it's better to have the lot rather than risk getting some lurgy which in turn ruins your jolly's. 

So where are we going today?

Today pawesome pals we're headed to the most mystical of all lands and our motherland, Egypt.

So I got Timmy's travel card ready, and off I hopped across the pond and 9 seconds later I landed.

 I cautiously peeked out of the TTTB door making sure I was in the right place, and that's when I saw Timmy from the pawesome blog Tomcat Commentary ambling across the garden towards me.

Timmy grinned and waved as he headed towards the TTTB.  "Smooch my old pal, what a lovely surprise," Timmy replied. "I've been waiting for this for ages, and I can't believe that mew're finally here!"

"Yeah sorry it took a bit of time dude, the P.A. said I couldn't travel because of this Covid-19 situation, but Humphrey managed to develop a cat covid vaccine so we're good to go once I've given you a dose," I said.

"Oh, it doesn't involve needles, does it?" Timmy asked, backing away warily.

"Oh, fluff no!" I replied, laughing. "It's been made by a cat for cats, so mew know there won't be any needles at all, in fact, Humphrey was most adamant that his vaccine tasted like a really yummy treat." I fished around in my camouflage fannypack and handed him a small fish-shaped snack. "Eat this," I said with a toothy grin. "It's tuna flavour."

Timmy took a bite and chewed slowly. "Oh, that's delicious!" he said aftur swallowing.

"Isn't it epic, and it's effective immediately offering 97.9% immunity," I replied. "If only humans liked tuna flavoured treats, we could save the wurld." We both nodded and headed into the TTTB.

 Timmy's eyes were the size of dinner plates as he looked around the TTTB interior, which is vastly different from the exterior.

"OH MY COD I can't believe how big it is in here and just look at the bridge, wow, I need one of these!" he laughed.

 We headed towards the main console, where I'd already inputted our next co-ordinates, and I said. "Dude, mew see the big red button?" Tim grinned and nodded excitedly. "Push it and let's get this pawty started as I can't wait to show mew where we are going today, it's literally going to blow your fur off when mew find out!"

Timmy paw-smacked the button and the TTTB vanished.

Wow, what an adventure we had; from the minute we landed to minute we left.

It was supurr funny when we furst got there and landed on the back of the sphynx, we were taking a selfie with the drone and a security dude yelled at us to move OOPS, who knew it was a no-parking zone for TTTB's?! MOL

So we parked in front of the sphynx instead, and the moment we stepped onto that golden sand it was non-stop action, culture, excitement and thrills, in fact, we felt like just like Indiana Jones, EPICALLY EPIC! 

We did have to run away from the Ibex though when we were having a picnic, as they are really grumpy and bad-tempered much like Amber but don't tell her I said that, anyhoo they like to charge at mew, especially if mew look at them funny, but we think this one was aftur our bacon sammiches or maybe the catnip salad we were enjoying.

The camel ride was hilarious, our ride was called Gobby because he likes to spit a lot, though he did tell us he wasn't keen on a lot of the human tourists who visit.  He also said he'd like to come and stay at BBHQ, although I'm not sure what the P.A. would say.

And can mew imagine our surprise at realising the mosaic floor at Petra was really an ancient map and that leading us to the greatest goddess effur, me and Timmy totally agreed that meeting Bastet was the greatest moment of our lives. In fact, she's invited us back for a vay-cay later in the year if we want to go. To be honest, we were really sad to leave Bubastis, but we knew we had to get home as we purromised we'd back for a BBQ at Timmy's place, so we said our farewells and I did give Bast my snail mail address just in case she wants to write, I think it would be nice to have a goddess pen pal.

Well, that sadly brings to the end of another jaw-droppingly amazing trip with an amazing furiend and we really did have the best time ever.

Thanks so much for joining Timmy and me on our epic Egyptian adventure, and I'll be back before mew know it sharing another far-flung destination, so hope mew can join me.

And if any of mew would like to accompany me on any future excursions which no doubt will be terribly exciting, possibly a little bit dangerous, well it might be furry dangerous at times and definitely a once in a lifetime oppurrtunity, send an email to:

deardrbasil @ gmail . com

With Smooch Around The Wurld in the subject line and a nice picture of yourself which we can clip plus your name, age and a couple of fun facts about mew, and who knows mew could be joining me on the adventure of a lifetime.

Until next time

Keep Calm

  3. What a cool trip!! You cats sure know how to have fun!!!

  4. Smooch! Dood! What a fun and Epic adventure my friend! The family was impressed that you landed the TTTB right in the cat yard to get me. The Sphynx was so cool putting our paw prints at Abu Simbel was so sly. Maybe the Ibex was upset he could not do the same? What a grouch. Thanks for waiting while I got my bag of souvenirs for the family at the museum. I must meow that map at Petra was something I never thought we would find let alone Bubastis. And then Bastet, what great hostess and... Oh, sorry, mums the meow. Thats why only we cats can see it. It was a trip that I will remember always and I hope we can visit again. Thanks so much for taking me along Smooch. Ouch, I have a tad of sunburn MOL

  5. I've always wanted to visit Bubastis our Motherland. Seriously, this is so good it could be a book.

  6. What a fun adventure and thanks for letting me come along. You visited places I would love to see in person.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Happy Tuesday. My best to your wonderful mom. ♥

  7. What a great adventure, and to meet Bastet too! The Petra map was amazing!

  8. What an incredible trip! Smooch, it was so furry much fun to see you and Timmy on such a grand trip! These are many places that I, Marvelous would love to visit! And telling us of the characters you met...it made me feel like I was right there in the telephone booth with you! Thanks for sharing and have a marvellously Happy Day!

  12. Oh WOW! First time I have had the opportunity to see you on an adventure...one close t all of us kittie's hearts! LOVED every mile. I wonder if my tunnel could get me there if I set the coordinates right?

  13. Really, you compared the Ibex to Amber?!?
    I have a favourite book series, that takes place in Egypt in Victorian times. Amelia is a proper English woman, who finds that Egyptology is her passion...and it might have something to do with a handsome Egyptologist whom she befriends...*eyebrow waggle*

  14. Meowza what a wonderful trip! I have instructed The Human to find us a TTTB right away.
    Purrs & Head Bomks,

  15. Really enjoyed your adventure in Egypt.x😻💖🐾
