Happy Wednesday fluffies

And welcome to the BBHQ mid-week news round-up, and furst up this week.

 Musical Boxes - Who Won?

The other day we decided to play a game of musical boxes; it's like musical chairs only as we're cats it's with boxes instead.

Melvyn and Smooch were the last two left circling the box. Amber was knocked out furst, so she skulked off to the Library. Parsley was next to fall foul of being boxless, and then Fudge missed out by a gnats whisker to Smooch.  And then there were two.

Let us know in the comment who mew thought was the winner and we'll let mew know on Friday in Amber's post.

Next up in the news, it's been really weird weather this week at BBHQ we've got rid of the rain, but it's turned into snow instead! 

One minute it's snowing and either blowing a blizzard or thick heavy flakes are falling gracefully out of the sky, then in the next breath the sun is blazing, the snow is melting, and it starts all over again. Snow, sun, melt!

So while all this bizarreness has been happening, Fudge has been hanging out in the catservatory watching it all happening from the comfort of his sofa and telling the P.A. when the burds water needs defrosting, their feeders need refilling and making sure the smaller burds have their feeders tucked safely away where the bigger burds can't scoff everything.  

He's such a caring, sharing ginger ninja! MOL

And our final news story this week...

In a brief respite from the snow showers, Parsley decided he needed a bit of extra luck for a lottery ticket he purrchased, so he thought the best way to feel lucky was to wear his supurr lucky bandana, we'll let mew know if he wins! MOL

    And that photo from where the P.A.'s brother lives is EPIC. Wow!

  3. I think Melvyn won. Smooch is too busy putting his scent on the box. That view in Scotland is beautiful.

  4. Your brother has a fabulous view. Wow. A slice of heaven right there.

    I'm going with Melvyn as the winner too.

    Have a fabulous day. Scritches to all the kitties and a hug to the mom. ♥
