Hello epically fluffy furiends

How's your week been so far? 

Before we begin, we've decided that next week will be our last Pet Parade, we've been a co-host for over 7 years and have had great fun, Majorie aka Dash Kitten has been an epic host, and our co-host aka Barking from the Bayou has been wunderpurr too, thanks Melissa, and it's been really fun being part of the trio! 

And we'd like to thank all the pawesome regulars for joining us every week, as without mew guys there would have been no hop. So thank mew again from the bottom of our fluffy hearts we've really loved your company ever Wednesday.

So what's been happening in Mewton-Clawson this week, well furst up in the news is:

Why Do Cats Love Plant Pots? Part II

Last week, mew may remember that we asked why cats love sitting in plant pots and mew guys left some pawesome answers in the comments, and this week we thought we'd share another photo of Smooch in the catnip pot.

So the general consensus is cats love sitting in plant pots because; they're cat-sized to curl up in, and they like it because if they didn't, they wouldn't get in/on them.  

Plus, they also love getting into drawers, boxes, cupboards, baskets, suitcases, handbags etc... they love to feel secure and safe, and these kinds of places give them that security, including some plant pots too! MOL

There mew have it, between us all we've just solved another cat mystery! 

Oh, and Smooch is having a tooth out this morning, so any POTP will be greatly appreciated, thank mew furry much.

It was fabulously warm on Caturday and Sunday, and Fudge did enjoy a garden safari, but the best was this sun puddle on Sunday...

It was the most epic sun puddle of 2021 so far; Fudge's face says it all! 

The P.A. and Dad went for a walk, and it was glorious. Take a look at this.

It was gorgeous out and about in Mewton-Clawson, and no the P.A. didn't fall in the pot-hole on the side of the road; it was a close-shave though! MOL

We actually meant to share this last week; our sofas have black blankets on them, and Parsley loves snoozing on them, only we have to be so careful as he sometimes he just seems to disappear, his camouflage skill are legendary anyway, but this takes it to a whole new level. Even Pandora is hard to see at times, though Parsley is the stealth king at BBHQ.

  1. You two look really cozy and it looks like a darn nice day for a walk too!

  2. Smooch, you may want to sit in that catnip later after you get back from the stabby zone...and here is a load of POTP for you.

    That is one fab sunpuddle, Fudge!! Super!!

    And we have humongous pot holes, too...sheesh. One day a wheel may get left behind in one...

    Parsley, that is the height of bering incognito!!

  3. Smooch, you look perfect in that pot, for sure. We hope your trip to the dentist goes smoothly. POTP, for sure!

    Fudge, that sun looks glorious, as does the P.A.'s photo of the weather outside. Much better than when you were getting all that flooding there!

    And Parsley, our housepanther Ava has those ninja camouflage skills, too. :)

  4. We had that same lovely weather too, but today is dull and grey. It was good while it lasted! I hope your vet visit for your dental goes well, Smooch.
    Parsley has impressive camouflage skills.

  5. We're having some great weather here, but it's supposed to rain on Saturday.

    Yes cats like to feel safe and having something to curl up in is a good thing.

    Have a purrfect day. My best to your siblings and your wonderful mom. ♥

  6. Looks like you're enjoying those sun puddles. enjoy it while it lasts.

  7. Excellent catmoflauge, Parsley!
    Cat like to curl up on small places; it's hardwired into them as a safety measure.
    However, why they sometimes sleep with all four paws in the air, and tummy exposed...*shrug*

  8. You all look meowvelous. Dad is getting some big pots this year for his New Garden. We will be laying in them fur sure. Smooch you look good in yours. That is some fine sun Fudge. Parsley Toby suggests going to any cubby you have and melting into the back of it. Only eyes peer out which are really cool. He does it on our cat tree.
    Sorry to hear about the Pet Parade. We stop by most weeks and will miss it.

  9. Sending good thoughts to Smooch.

  10. I showed my Daddy how nice yoor pots looked and how much I'd like pots too. He said he will think about it. We had a wonderpurr week of sun puddles too. They are especially nice when the air is chilly, but the indoors are warm and snuggly. So happy yoor P.A. did not fall into pot hole. Sigh! Evfurryone has a pot except me. Love, Dori

  11. You all look wonderful on that beautiful sunny day, well - except for Parsley, couldn't really see how wonderful Parsley looked - MOL!

  12. Smooch! You look purrfect in the pot! I hope your mouth feels better fast! Fudge, that is a glorious sun puddle and that dive into the Peach blossom - wowwzers! Ours won't be blooming for a while yet. Parsley, your camouflage is working...we could not tell you from the blanket. What a wonderfully newsy post! AWESOME! Have a marvellously happy day!

  13. You are such cuties. Thanks for hosting the parade. XO
