Supurr Wednesday Greetings Pawesome Furiends

Welcome to our weekly news round-up!

What a week, it was Bonfire Night on Caturday; normally we post but this year for some reason we didn't. 

Anyhoo, guess what happened?

Some complete fluffing fluffer went and set fire to a customer's vehicle in the car park at the P.A.'s work. Yep, they clambered over a brambled-infested dyke, climbed over a six-foot fence with a barbed wire top, lost a sock in the process, then they proceeded to the vehicle and poured an accelerant down the driver's window and door and chucked a match at it.

Luckily one of the P.A.'s cousins was driving by, saw the flamage and rang the fire brigade. Dad had to hot-foot it to the garage at 9pm. 

There was another expensive 4X4 parked next to the flaming one, which has also sustained minor damage to the driverside door handles, door trim and wing mirror. We say minor at first glance it's approx 4K's worth of damage before it's assessed.

The police came and are investigating it, but they aren't hopeful about catching anypurrdy, as the purrpetrator crawled along the back of the vehicle in the dark out of view of the CCTV cameras. So this has turned out to be a very expensive week thanks to some completely selfish twerp who decided to burn out a lovely 4X4.

Luckily,  it was in the side compound with the other one because they were both recovered vehicles that were non-running, so the good news is that they weren't in the back compound near fifteen other 4X4s. So we are extremely thankful for that small mercy, and we are also thankful it had rained that day because the trees next to the vehicle could have caught on fire and then set the actual garage ablaze, so we are eternally grateful for that too.

We think that whoever set fire to the vehicle thought they'd get away with it because it was Bonfire night, ie; a rogue firework set it alight. And now we are stuck with the bill for one completely destroyed 4X4 and one partially damaged one. This will severely impact the insurance policy/future premiums just for some fluffing fluffer being a total twerp.

We just hope karma is keeping tabs.

First up in the news

Who's Turned Into A Complaining Karen

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® Pandora's Turned Into A Karen

Just look at that face, mew know it's got a purroblem and a big one at that! MOL

We don't know what has got Pandora's boggle, but she did mention that she was writing to Parsley to express some pent-up pet peeves which were popping up all around her this week.

Fudge did try to mansplain to her about the eclipse on last night's full moon, and how the planetary alignments were not conducive to being harmonious or zen for that matter. 

In other words, the zen harmonies are being disrupted by a really fluffed-up cosmic event. The full moon with an eclipse in Taurus will be challenging for most earth dwellers. In fact, the P.A. has the most horrible migraine right now; she usually gets headaches around the full moon, but this one is next level.

Anyhoo, this is the advice Fudge gave Pandora: take a breath, count to however many numbers mew need to calm down and think before mew speak. Ride out the next few days avoiding confrontation, grumpy/bad-tempered beings and remember it'll all be ok.

Next up in the news

The Case of The Missing Catnip Cushion


The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® The Case of Missing Catnip Cushion

Furstly, Smooch is pleading the 5th, even though such a thing doesn't exist in the UK, nevertheless, he is taking that option! MOL

Isn't it hilarious how catnip can bring out the worst in cats?

What started off a fun afternoon sampling some new catnip cushions, ended up in said cushions mysteriously disappearing without a trace and very conveniently nopawdy knew anything about said disappearances. 

Now, the photographic evidence in Exhibit A above clearly depicts a heinous crime of deception and subterfuge happening right under our furry noses, yet Smooch still denies any involvement. 

Therefore, a request was broadcasted to all B Team memfurs to return said catnip cushions within 24 hours without any re-purrcushions, pardon the pun.

We'll let mew know on next week's news if they were returned.

Finally this week

It was a close vote, but the Mystical Unicorn bandana won by one! MOL

And just before we sign off for this week, the Hungarian Velvet Paws Sanctuary Foundation a non-profit organization in Hungary contacted us to ask if we could share their website with mew, our fabulous readers.

The foundation is supported by donations, so if mew can help, or spread the word about this wonderful cat shelter that would be epic.

There are many ways to help, mew can send them supplies, or donate via PayPal

They are also on Twitter:

@HungVelvetPaws so do go and follow them if mew're on Twitter, and retweet if mew can.

We also checked out the Adoption page, awwwwww, there are so many cute kitties needing homes.

Mew can follow their journey on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.

That's us done for today; Amber will be back on Friday with another fab book just for mew, and if mew missed Monday's post, our supurr informative Cat Hazards post with free printable click here to catch up.

  1. Love all the news. It's good to stay informed. Your kitties are most adorable.

    I want the glow bugs this week.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches all around and my best to mom. ♥

  2. Love the picture of Pandora, even if she's a bit grumpy! I'm going to vote glowbugs again this week!

  3. Sorry to read about the arson at your place of employ; what a twerp!
    Pandora, we hope you gave Fudge a good swipe for talking down to you.
    Smooch, if they cannot use DNA evidence, it doesn't count.
    Melvyn, you look fab!

  4. If the car arsonist lost a sock, there should be skin cells in the fabric that could yield DNA to catch the ****** !

  5. There sure has been a lot going on at your place but that's horrible about the fire.

  6. Great modeling Melvyn. I am sorry that happened at the garage. I don't know why some people have to be such jerks. XO

  7. That's terrible about the fire. I wish they could catch the person who started it! Melvyn, we think you should wear the glow bugs next. :)

  8. I like your bananda, Melvyn, maybe the glowbugs can be next?

    Pandora sure looks like she wants to caterwaul at some-cat!
    Smoochie, are you an inveterate catnip thief?? LOL!

    Sheesh, what a horrible affair with that fire vandalism. Phooey and more on the perpetrator.
    I hope they can catch him somehow. Maybe there might be blood on the fence is he lost his sock?

    I hope your PA's headache has subsided by now

  9. That is awful about the arsonist! I hope they can get DNA from his sock. He may already be on their records.
    I hope you have calmed down now Karen, sorry I mean Pandora. I say the glowworm bandana too
