Happy Wednesday fluffies

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

**UPDATE** Musical Boxes - Who Won?

If mew remember last week, we asked who did mew think won the musical boxes game, Smooch or Melvyn? It was purretty even across the board with a 50/50 chance of either of them winning the box.

But mew know what happened, while those two slow-coaches we inspecting around and under the flaps, Fudge took full advantage, and this was the result!

Next up in the news this week...

The Best Photo of Pandora Ever

Mew know we've read a lot of articles about black cats being notoriously hard to photograph well, in fact we know all about that with our resident house panther Parsley. Still, in our purrsonal opinion, we think it's harder to get a decent picture of Pandora.

 She is horrendous to take a good picture of, because:- a; she's so fast and doesn't sit still, b; lighting here is not great, c; her markings and colour make it even more difficult, d; she has half a beige splodge under her chin which makes her look a little fierce.

So out of all the B Team Cats, Pandora is the hardest to take a good picture of, but as luck would have it the other day in the Library conditions conspired for a purrfect shot, and here it is...

   A purrfect little ewok-sasquatch-siberian cat and she looks only moderately-fierce, not her normal look of; if mew come any closer, I will end mew! MOL

What do mew think?

And our final news story...

Sauce's Sunspot

Last weeks freezing wintery weather finally gave way to more temperate temperatures on Sunday. Yesterday it really improved, and Parsley Sauce found this little sunspot or hotspot in the courtyard, it was breeze free, and he was loving all those warms!

The other day we got an email about a new Kickstarter which launched yesterday from the fab peeps at, they are making the most epic modular furniture for cats and asked us if we could give them a shoutout here on the blog, why yes of course we can! MOL

The furniture is great, and combines many elements that have been well thought out for the modern cat pawrent. Check out their website for more details - link above.

So if mew're looking for a feline furiendly Kickstarter to support, this could be for mew.

    We'll go check out the Catrub Kickstarter now.


  2. Wow, those were all great images your PA captured!! Pandora's was gorgeous! She doesn't look fierce to us, she looks rather serene!

    MOL, about the Fudge in the Box! What a smartypants!

  3. I think you're looking great Pandora!

  4. That is a lovely photo of Pandora. The sun really brings out her colouring.

  5. You rock Fudge. You're right if you snooze you lose.

    Pandora is most beautiful and that's a great shot of her.

    I love the feline furniture. Beautiful.

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

  9. Fudge, we never would have guessed you! We love all the photos, but Pandora, you look AWESOME! And we are ever so Happy that you sponsor the Hop! Thank you, the B Team Rocks! Have a marvellously wonderful day!

  10. Those are great photos of Pandora and Parsley. Fudge, you were smart to move in for the box while Smooch and Melvyn were trying to come to a compromise.

  11. My momma is envious of the flowers behind Pandora. At our house, anything flowery in a vase gets the slam dunk by my brothers. I think Pandora is beautiful. And Parsley looks very comfortapurr. Love, Dori
