Supurr Wednesday Greetings Pawesome Furiends

Welcome to November and our weekly news round-up!

We can't believe that November has just popped up; where is the time going? It'll be Catmas in two shakes of a lamb's tail! MOL

And speaking of Catmas we've got to start designing this years festive card, do mew have any idea's for us?

First up in the news

Crystal Healing with Smooch

Smooch really enjoys being around the crystals. He also enjoys a bit of crystal healing too, although finding the right crystals to put on him can take a bit of time, though we did manage to get the purrfect selection the other evening and here are the ones we used: carnelian, apatite, orange calcite, and selenite tumble stones. We'll be sharing more info on these crystals in our upcoming Colouring with Cats posts.

Check out his supurr cute video on TikTok.

Doesn't he look so smoochy? MOL

Smooch also managed to find a tiny sun puddle the other day!

It was just a slither, but he loved it.

Parsley's Snoopervising in The Garden

Parsley was the chief snoopervisor in the BBHQ garden on Tuesday.

We were planting some tulip bulbs, now do be careful as the actual bulbs are toxic to cats. We planted ours in some plant pots which The B Team aren't bothered with.

Also, don't let your kitties near daffodil bulbs either, just to err on the side of caution.

The B Team don't dig any bulbs up at BBHQ; in the 23 years we've lived here no one has ever had a bad experience with a tulip, daffodil or their corresponding bulbs. So we're pretty confident that we can have these flowers in our garden without issue but always do your own research.

Check out the selection that we planted in Parsley's TikTok video.

For those of mew who live in the UK, most of these bulbs were from B and M, on the 3 for £5 offer. They have some good bulbs at a reasonable price.

Finally this week

Melvyn's Latest Shopping Haul

Melvyn loves getting all dressed up, and mew know how much he loves his bandana shopping!

Which one should he model furst?

The options from the top left in a clockwise direction:

1. Mystical Unicorns

2. Glow Bugs

3. Gingerbread Skelebobs

4. Evil Eye Protection

 Let us know in the comments, and he will model it on next week's post.

Also, if mew need your weekly Melvyn video fix, here's his latest TikTok where he is brutally assaulting the Giant Pumpkins catnip kicker toy. What a heathen!  MOL

 Unboxing The Halloween Feline & Fiction Box

Mew know we had a subscription with Feline and Fiction for ages, and then it lapsed and we forgot about it. Anyhoo last month we saw the Halloween box on Instagram and decided to sign up for 3 more months.

Here's their Halloween Black Cat Box unboxed with the invaluable help of Fudge and Melvyn.

It was filled with a really great selection of goodies; we especially liked the purple bats and the P.A. loved the little bag and oil burner!

We've had a bumper-packed Halloween week; here are the links in case mew missed anything! 




That's us done for today. Join us again on Friday when Amber will be here with this week's top book pick and the winner of her birthday giveaway. 

Until then

  2. Fireflies! Or Lightning bugs, as some parts call 'em.

  3. The unicorn is my pick. Adorable. They are all cute though.

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

  4. I like the glow bugs best, though all the bandanas are very cool! That was a nice box of goodies!

  5. Y'all look fabulous and you sure had a fun time with that goodie box. Hey Melvyn, I say go with the Mystical Unicorns.

  6. Melvyn, you have excellent taste. I especially like the eye of protection so I vote for that one. :) XO

  7. Melvyn, we vote or the glow bugs, but they are all great. Enjoy that sun sliver, Smooch, and Parsely, that pot looks very comfy! XO
