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
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.

The Case of The Missing Catnip Cushion
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
