 Epic Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

Hello lovely readers, it's fabulous to have your company at BBHQ today.

First up in the news this week

The top London agency Vuelio has announced its Top Ten UK Pet Bloggers for 2022, and the epically epic news is, according to their proprietary algorithm :

We're Still The No2 Pet Blog in The UK

As mew can imagine, we're truly delighted to be on the list and remaining at the No2 spot for the fourth year in a row is incredible. 

Top 10 UK Pet Blogs Ranking


And concatulations to Katzenworld for remaining in the No1 position, and to Athena, Cat Goddess for landing at the No7 position! 

And many concats to all the other blogs on the list, mew are epic!

Next up in the news

Are our comments getting through?

Melvyn noticed at the weekend that there is a new comment form on some blogger blogs, and he couldn't seem to comment on some of the blogs with our regular blogger i.d., so he had to comment anonymously on a few.

Also, sometimes when we comment on WordPress press sites, we get an error message and it's impossible to leave a comment.

So if mew're wondering why we aren't commenting, it's because we can't. We even try different combinations of emails and web addresses in the comment forms, and even that doesn't seem to make a difference. 

But never fear we will continue to visit and try, and hopefully the interwebs Gods will let a comment through! MOL 

And if mew like Melvyn's desk and chair, click here to see how we made it.

Finally, this week

As we mentioned on Sundays post it's the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in June, so Parsley decided to get ahead of the game and find the flags we made for V.E. Day in 2020.

He's also ordered some extra bunting too, and we're going to change the huge V.E. flag we made, so we'll share a little crafting post soon showing the transformation.

We'll change the V to a Q so it will be QE 75 aka Queen Elizabeth 75.

So stay tuned for that!

Sorry we don't have time for any hot gossip this week, the P.A. is finally getting a haircut after 18 months, so we didn't have enough time to get everything done! 

That's us done for today, Amber will be back on Friday with another fab book just for mew, and click here to catch up on ManCat Monday with Smooch.

  1. That's such awesome news about your #2 ranking! Concatulations! We are sorry you're having trouble commenting and such. We hope that gets resolved for you soon. Melvyn is looking so good at his desk. :)

    What a great idea to fix up the flags you made for VE Day for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee!

  2. Congratulations on making it on this list once again!

  3. Congratulations on keeping your #2 spot.
    I have noticed the new forms as well but haven't had a problem using them (famous last words!) I checked our blog too and see we also have it. Blogger must have decided things were running too smoothly and it was time for a change. I am getting your comments as anonymous.

  4. Fantabulous...Concats!
    We love your blog, and everyone else must love it too.
    Elizabeth II has been on the throne for my entire life; for all of her ups and downs, you've got to admit that she's one tough woman.

  5. I noticed that new comment form for Googleand I wish I knew why they did that. I have had a few comments from you and glad to get them. WP blogs are the hardest for me to comment on and Katie can't. Just me with my old not-used WP blog that they won't allow me on for a long time. No idea why.

  6. I didn't know about the ratings either and I visit Goddess Athena all the time.

    I did notice the new comment form on Blogger. I like it and I've not had any issues using it.

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

  8. Wow! Concats to you on your blog-ranking! And too the others as well:)

    We have those commenting troubles too...what a pain. Google peeps didn't even tell us they were going to change things. They always seem to make a disaster for us one way or another,.
