 Epic Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

We hope wherever mew are that your week has been fabulous and the weather is clement! 

First up in the news this week

It did break 40C last Chewsday at BBHQ, the hottest ever day ever in the history of Mewton-Clawson and it remained warm until the weekend.

Luckily we have a portable air-con unit for upstairs which the P.A. purrchased way back in 2015, so sleeping wasn't a problem, but the house was still heaving with heat for days after as the bricks slowly cooled down.

We've had a few light showers but nothing noteworthy yet, and in the news, it said that we're headed for a drought. If it's not one thing it's another, and it's all bad.

 Mew know ever since covid appeared, it's just been bad news after bad news, and when we thought things were improving Russia declared war on Ukraine, fuel and energy prices soared into outer space and continue to head off into uncharted territory, food prices are increasing daily, inflation is in another universe, and then monkey-pox decides it wants to join the endless bad news pawty.

It's like wow - seriously what the fluff is going on?

Next up in the news

Well after the bad news segment above, we thought we needed to share something much, much lighter, so Fudge is here with more Follow the Floof!

Fudge decided to stalk a pigeon up the tree and went into full purredator mode!!! MOL

Watch the video on TikTok

Follow the Floof Day 8 

We're still waiting for his report, he says he's typing it up and we'll get to read it soon but in the meantime stay tuned for more Follow the Floof.

Finally this week

Smooch Caught Red-Pawed Sleeping On The Job

Look at that!!!

Can mew believe that Smooch was caught snoozing on the job?  WOW, we can't either! MOL

If mew like Smooch's desk, check out how we made it on our Crafting with Cat's post here.

And in Smooch's defence, he did say that he'd been on nights in the bunker, so he was allowed a quick nap under the desk!

If mew have any questions for us, about anything, ask away and we'll answer on next week's post.

Plus we'll also answer any questions left in the comments over the last few days in this section too.

Parsley, I meant to ask you...are you and @Admiralhester1 and @Katiebella2 connected on Twitter?

We checked our Twitter account, and yes we are following both of mew! But we don't go on Twitter a lot, we're more on Instagram and TikTok. 

Although on TikTok we only share vids, we're more sociable on Instagram.

I hope none of the fires are near you. Most of the fires this way are moorland, most likely caused by people being careless with BBQs!

On Chewsday evening aka the hottest day, we could smell burning grass and see a plume of smoke further down the village near another cousin of the P.A.'s. So she made a call to see if they were burning and if they needed assistance, but it was all ok, thank goodness. 

There was a huge fire on one farm further up from the P.A.'s business, and sadly a lot of woodland was scorched too.

We hope all is well in your neck of the woods too! 

Cathy Keishasaid on Amber's Surprise book review

Great book review altho the fill-in answers sounded a bit like a politician skirting around the issues. 

The P.A. is laughing, no one has ever compared her to a politician before, she's normally accused of being too blunt and basically shooting at point-blank range with zero regard for fall-out! LOL LOL

Eastside Catssaid on our second Crafting with Cats post: 

Hmm...wonder if I can adapt this design to make voodoo dolls.
Hahahaha...just kidding! *wink*

OHHHHHH nice idea, and yes they would make excellent voodoo dolls! 

That's us done for today, we will be back on Friday with another fluffers post just for mew, and if mew missed yesterday's post click here to catch up on

  1. That was fun gang, well, all the crap going on in the world isn't fun, but y'all always are fun!

  2. Pictures of Fudge and Smooch definitely beat da news!

  3. You are so right. There's just so much crazy stuff going on in the world right now. We always remind ourselves of the good things in our lives -- like you!

  4. Al the woes of the world can be forgotten when we come to see all the antics of your kitties and the other fun things that happen at BBHQ!

    Did Fudge catch the pigeon?? Or anything? Hope he knows how to get out of the tree, else there might be another epic blog post!

  5. We didn't get as hot as you but reached 36, I think it was. We are back to normal at around 18. Much better and a day of steady rain yesterday. I see they are forecasting another heatwave of ridiculous temperatures for the beginning of August. Noooo!!!
    I am glad you weren't affected by the fires.
    Fudge, when you have sorted that pigeon out I have one here that needs sorting. He sits on the phone pole outside out bedroom window at 5.15 every morning and coos constantly. Not only that, but it is the most raucous coo you have ever heard!!

  6. We hope Fudge made it down safely (and without injury to the PA!).

  7. "It's like wow - seriously what the fluff is going on?"
    A truer sentence was never written!!!!
    Thank you for the voodoo doll answer, although I assure you, I have no need to make voodoo dolls...*wink*

  8. It's always hot here during the summer. It's just the way it is here.

    Yikes on the heat and all the fires. We burn here every summer and have for years and years.

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

  9. Fudge that was quite an excursion! I'm glad y'all are safe from the fires. There is way too much going on these days, I agree. We need a break! What a cute picture of Smooch deep in a snooze!

  10. That photo of Smooch is adorable. Glad you have a/c. XO
