Welcome to Our Mid-Week News Round-Up on The Pet Parade & Today's Headlines are ~ Why Do Cats Love Plant Pots? ~ Melvyn's New Toy and Fudge's Giant Floof Explodes
Happy Wednesday fluffies
And welcome to the BBHQ mid-week news round-up, and furst up this week.
Why Do Cats Love Plant Pots?
Contrary to some schools of thought, cats do not grow in plant pots, even though Smooch is sitting in one, this doesn't mean he's growing and he definitely won't multiply either!! MOL
But seriously, why do cats love sitting in plant pots?
Just the other day Smooch was flat out in the catnip pot on the otherside of the courtyard, and prior to him being in it Fudge had been flat out in it.
The P.A. is thinking of netting it off as the poor plant is squashed flat and if it gets damaged while the new growth is sprouting it could hinder our future catnip crop.
But that still doesn't answer our question, of why plant pots are so appealing to snooze/relax/chill in, as a lot of them look really uncomfortable and who wants a plant tickling ones backside, other than Smooch and Fudge! MOL
We think it's because they know they shouldn't be on or in them. Or they like their bums being tickled, or they like sitting/laying in soil/compost/dirt!
Tell us why mew think cats love getting in plant pots in the comments.
Next up this week...
Melvyn's New Toy
Check out the video on TikTok, we finally got an account and know we are a little late to the TikTok pawty but so it goes, and we have 2, yes 2 followers, so if mew're on there do follow us/like our vids and we'll follow mew back/like your vids.
Anyhoo back to Melvyn's new toy. The P.A. found a brand new wand toy** in the cupboard in the sitting room on Monday evening and the second Melvyn heard the jingle jangle of the bell he was there in a flash.
Before we managed to even get a little video he'd grabbed it and run off upstairs with it. The P.A. retrieved it 3 times and finally, she had to hide it from him as it was sending him a bit wappy. he loves anything with a bell on it, do mew remember his playing fetch with his collar? Check it out on our instagram feed.
If mew like this pawesome toy, we purrchased it from Paws Boutique* in London, they have some really gorgeous things to buy, and mew should check out their cat beds #epic, and they have oodles of goodies for our K9 furiends too!
**CAT SAFETY** never ever leave your cat alone with a wand toy, always put it away in a cupboard or drawer, see our Cat Hazardspost for more info.

And finally in this weeks news...
Fudge's Giant Floof Explodes
Parsley had just returned from a little outdoor expedition and Fudge thought he'd give him a quick sniff, and then his tail exploded! MOL
It's been quite flat and down the last few days so it was lovely to see all fluffed up and supurr floofy again, even Smooch was astounded and had to step back short of getting caught in the floof-fallout! MOL
