Welcome to The BBHQ Mid-Week News Round-Up ~ Hedgehog Update Part 3, Fudge Versus The Catnip Cushion and Haunted Happenings at BBHQ

Epic Wednesday Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the Pet Parade and our weekly news round up!

The hedgehogs have been busy bipping around the garden at BBHQ this week; Scooter, Wriggles and Snuffles have been visiting every night, although we have missed Prickles, but they do bip in and out at different times, so if we've been in the upstairs lounge and Prickles ambled along, we could've easily missed him/her visiting. The younger ones seem to arrive together or not long after each other.

Scooter, the smallest one likes to eat and then he'll go and get huddled up against the basket, mew'll see in the video. Then he'll go and get some more snacks and then return for another huddle in the same spot. We've been keeping an eye on him, but he seems fine.

They don't seem bothered by our presence or by us videoing them at all. In fact, last night Wriggles sat a few inches away from the P.A.'s foot while she talked to him/her.

There's also another Hedgehog which appeared one night last week that we haven't seen before, and Snuffles wasn't pleased as there was a bit of a kerfuffle, sadly we didn't have the phone so didn't get any footage, though we will keep an eye out to see if the new one appears again.

Next up in the news. Dad and the P.A. went on a little shopping excursion on Caturday to our local B&M store, and while the P.A. was meandering along the Pet Food Aisle she spied some new things, catnip and valerian cushions, so she got one of each for us to try and a new feather wand toy for Melvyn which we'll share next time.

We think the cushions were hit, and next time we'll show mew the video where; catnip cushions cause a disturbance to the peace, just ask Smooch. #ohdear 

Haunted Happenings at BBHQ

And finally this week, if mew remember on the Friday Fill-ins when the P.A. mentioned her missing earring

So if mew've caught up on the story so far, the P.A. will continue...

Hello lovely readers, and I'm going to share my theory of the missing earring which I will say is a bit far out and probably completely absurd, but do bear with me while I explain.

The barn conversion which we live in is over 200 years old, it's apparently even older than the church in our little village and was even built before the farm house next door which my uncle purchased in 1983 along with the derelict barn (our home) and a few acres of land. My uncle converted the barn in 1986 and I moved in in 1999.

So when I moved in and started to do a bit of decorating and stuff, strange things began to happen. I noticed that unexplained phenomena only occurred when I was changing stuff, and at the time the earring vanished I'd been remodelling the laundry.

Anyhoo, what I think happened to the earring is this, it was teleported or spirited away to the old farm house next door. I know it sounds really bizarre but I've had items that don't belong to me appear in my house. 

For example one Saturday morning a kids purple Porsche dinky toy appeared out of nowhere on the chest of drawers in the middle bedroom. We don't have kids, it was not an item I'd ever seen before and it just appeared, materialised overnight as it definitely wasn't there the evening before and no one else had been in the house.

The people who live in the farmhouse had three boys, their dad drove a Porsche and that is my only rational explanation, well as rational as one can be with strange occurrences. And before you ask, I don't ever see the neighbours, and therefore never got to ask if it belonged to them. 

My earring never came back, but I suspect it's next door at the Snail Slingers (that's another story). And the purple car did vanish again at some point, so who knows where it is now??? 

There's also been actual poltergeist activity happen too, and let me know in the comments if you want to hear about that, as we had to get the house blessed.

That's us done for today, Amber will be back on Friday with another pawesome book just for mew, and if mew missed Monday's Colouring with Cats and would like to know a little more about the lovely green malachite stone, go check it out and there's a gorgeous mandala to colour too.

  1. Wow, that was some catnip adventure, Fudge!! I bet if that was larger you could truly have at it...with all four paws...aka kicking it!

    The little hedgies are so cute! Are they eating kitty noms or something else??

    Those sure are strange things happening at your place. Yikes!

  2. The hedgehogs are good eaters! We sure hope it helps them plump up for the winter. FUDGE! That catnip cushion looks like it meets with your approval. :)

    The P.A.'s story about the missing earring and the Porsche dinky are wild! We vote for yes on the telling of the poltergeist tales.


  3. Fudge really had a blast with the catnip cushion.
    Yes please, I want to hear more about the Poltergeist activity! The hedgehogs are cute.

  4. Aw on your hedgehogs. So cute.

    Love the catnip video too. You're the bomb, Fudge.

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

  5. I definitely want to hear more about the haunted happenings. I love stuff like that as long as the spirits are friendly. XO

  6. The hedgehogs are sure cute and WOW on that shopping trip. There's sure some interesting things going on and it sounds like a haunted movie!
