Festive Wednesday Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

It's only two days to Catmas Eve, and we've been supurr busy here, the tree is up, the outside lights are glowing and we're pretty much ready. Plus if Santa Paws needs any help we've got the sled and if mew missed our epic crafting post, do go see what we made.

Now on with the festive news...

Furst up in the today.

Remember at the beginning of the month, the pawesome peeps from asked if we'd like a *digital pawtrait of the B Team, and they did a truly ameowzing job. 

They asked us if we'd like to do another collaboration, only this time they offered a Royal Pet Portrait using one of their historic pawtrait templates, well mew just know that we couldn't refuse an offer for yours truly to be a Colonel, so here's the final artwurk.

We think it's EPICALLY EPIC, just take a look at these!


We got to download the high-res images again, and we can have it put on a canvas here in the UK, but mew can also opt to have them printed/painted on a canvas too for an additional cost.

Currently, are having a flash promo of 1 pet portrait for USD$10, 3 pet portraits for USD$20 - digital files only.

Here's the direct link:

They do ship worldwide too, so if mew're looking for an epically epic pawtrait, we'd highly recommend trying them as we are delighted with ours again, totally top paw! These would make a wonderpurr Catmas gift.

Visit @paintmyfurkids on Instagram to see oodles of fabulous pawtraits, and they also do lots of different themes too, we especially love the Royal Pet Portraits and think that maybe Amber needs one next as we especially like The Queen or The Duchess.

*FYI ~ Disclosure: Even though this is a collaboration our review is completely honest and reflects our own experience/s with the product/s.

Next up, as it's Catmas we did treat ourselves to some new festive bandana's from our epic pal Eric and his wonderpurr Etsy store - sadly it's closed now for the holidays, so we're glad we put our order in early.

Finally in the news this week.

Today we're helping @PetsAtHomeFoundation raise important funds for its Christmas appeal which supports pets in rescues, to give them a special Christmas this year, even though they'll be in rescue centres and helping them find a loving forever home.

Donations mean the world to rescue pets and donations are even more important over the festive period. If mew can donate to their Christmas appeal, mew'll help to keep thousands of #rescuepets healthy & happy. Mew can also help by heading to your local @petsathomeUK store or by donating online on their website at:

The Big Sleep

Wriggles, Scooter and Zippy have finally gone into hibernation, we checked the outside security footage as we hadn't seen them in a few days to see when they last came and it was Caturday 11th Decmber as the P.A. went through several days after that and there was no sign of any of the youngsters.

We just hope they've eaten enough to get themselves through their hibernation, and we know that we did everything possible to give them the best chance.

Here's a little video of a few cute clips and we look forward to seeing them in the spring all being well.

Guys, sadly we'll have to reconvene in the New Year with the Haunted Happenings, though if mew have missed any of our real ghost stories so far, click here to catch up.
