 Epic Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

We hope that your week has been blessed so far, ours has been rather busy and it seems things are just going to get busier now the nights are drawing out and more work in the garden is required.

First up in the news this week

 What The Fluff is Pandora Doing?

Pandora was caught mid-air all paws splayed, what do mew think caused this feat of aerial ingenuity or epically epic cat levitation?

Watch what she was doing on our Instagram account, mew won't believe it, as Pandora is not the sort of kitty who usually partakes in playtime! MOL

Next up in the news

Fudge Wears A Giant Dickiebow

The P.A. made this bowtie about three years ago, and when she was doing a spot of tidying in the craft room she found it in a box with lots of other stuff she's made.

Fudge was very keen to model it again, even though it is a little large! 

The P.A. has purromised to make us some more at some point, but this time a little smaller.

Finally this week

Melvyn The Work'o'Holic

Since the P.A. finished making the new office desk and chair, Melvyn has been taking his blogging duties furry seriously. In fact, we've discovered that he's a bit of a night-owl and likes to work late while we're all snoozing. 

So if mew're getting comments at random hours, Melvyn's reading your blogs and commenting on behalf of The B Team. 

We think he's doing a tremendous job, and so much so that even Amber upon seeing his tenacious work ethic has promoted him from lowly unpaid intern to ASSISTANT LIBRARIAN! 

Congratulations dude, and even though mew still won't get paid, get a lunch hour, or any 15-minute breaks, or any time off at all like ever, or even a catnip pension, we're really proud of mew.

Amber feels that working for her is such an honour and privilege that no monetary compensation is necessary. In fact, in true Amber fashion, she firmly believes that she should be paid an extortionate amount of cash to let others work with her and to learn the skills of a truly exceptional and unrivalled head librarian, and who are we to argue with that! MOL 

No doubt Amber will tell mew all about it on Friday's post.

The hot gossip at BBHQ this week is the pond is full of frog spawn; like seriously those frogs have been seriously busy the last few weeks!

There are several large clumps in the pond, and we know there are a few frogs lurking around the garden and have been for many years. 

A couple of years ago, the P.A. found one of the frogs stuck in the spout of one of the water cans. At first, she thought it was a blockage of dead leaves but on closer inspection, she saw it was a frog who had obviously clambered into the watering can and then had a change of heart, and tried to climb out but got wedged in the tight spout.

So after a considerable amount of wriggling and gentle persuasion, she finally managed to free Froggie and put him or her back in the pond, which we think he/she was quite relieved about.

We don't tend to bother with them, although I, Basil did get one many, many years ago, although I soon let it go when it squealed rather loudly.

Normally dad removes the spawn and carefully moves it to a local safe haven away from predators, to give the young froglets a sporting chance, as to be honest we don't really want hundreds of frogs hopping around the garden, jumping out on the P.A.!

So we'll keep mew posted on Frog-Gate as it unfolds.

That's us done for today, Amber will be back on Friday with another fab book just for mew, and click the link if mew missed Monday's post click here to catch up on the latest Brain Training session.

  1. Now, Amber, you are jiust the sort of supervisor that I myself would like to have. You aren't afraid to give Melvyn the recognition he deserves! Good on you, my furriend. The frogs. That reminds my mom of what happened to my human brother's driveway. He had poor drainage from rainwater and it collected in a too large area of hos driveway. Frogs found it a Spa place, and spawned like champions in his driveway!!

  2. Fudge, you look very dapper!
    Concats, Melvyn, on your promotion too!
    Um...don't know what to write about the frogs; we don't have any around here.

  3. I think Pandora must have been practising magic spells for the next big adventure. You look very smart, Fudge. Congratulations on your promotion, Melvyn.

  4. Pandora, what fun! Fudge, you look dapper in your bowtie! And concats to Melvyn! Good going on relocating the frogs in a safe place! My hubs has done that, too.

  6. Three wonderful things in this post today. Fudge and that awesome bow tie. Most adorable.

    Love the promotion. Well deserved.

    Awww on the baby frogs.

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

  7. Those are some moves Pandora and you look fabulous Fudge! Hey Melvyn, take plenty of breaks, yo don't want to overdo it!

  8. That is a wonderful bowtie! Love how it makes a statement!

    Pandora's antics made me giggle! Maybe she thought that twig was a small snake? The other day, petcretary saw some cranes tossing a branch and shaking it...I am sure it was trying to kill the 'snake'!

    We have had little green tree frogs blocking our watering can spouts, sometimes, too..they are so pretty in their green attire...or the color of the s=backgrounds they are on.

    There are all kinds of froggy songs at night here now...until the next time they go into hibernation. Us pups leave the foggies and toads alone, they taste so yucky! But a paw or two makes them jump, LOL!

  9. Pandora, we ove that you were having some fun! And Melvyn, congrats on the promotion, dude. But don't work too hard, okay? XO

  10. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, we appreciate it!

  11. Have a fabulous Thankful Thursday. Scritches all around and a big hug to mom. ♥

  12. Congrats on the promotion! Darling Pandora having fun! We can hear our frogs in the creek below us! Have a lovely day!

  13. You all look great. That photo of Pandora is priceless, and I agree that working for Amber would be an honor in itself with no pay needed. XO
