Welcome to our weekly news round-up!

Internet Update

The internet and phone lines are still down at BBHQ, and the new estimated time of repair has jumped to the 13th of December, so we're still limping along on the highly intermittant and sporadic 4G.

As mew can imagine, this is getting really annoying, and to upload a 9 second video takes between five & ten minutes, that's if it doesn't time out.

So do bear with us, as we're finding the whole situation quite trying.

First up in the news

Smooch and Melvyn Snuggling on The Sofa

It's been rather damp, wet and dull at BBHQ recently so the woodburner has been lit, and this was Smooch and Melvyn the other day enjoying totally tropical temperatures in the sitting room.

Next up in the news

Pandora's Under The Gazebo

Pandora was secretly watching Parsley - see the next story - from the table under the gazebo, although Parlsey didn't realise she was there the whole time! MOL

Parsley's Planting Tulips

Earlier in the month Parlsey was in charge of planting the tulip bulbs in two metal planters, anyhoo it pretty much rained for the enitre month and he's only just got them planted them this week, so check out his video here on YouTube.

We think he did a really great job and can't wait to see them in the Spring.

Finally this week

Melvyn's Modelling The Top Bandana Pick

The Gingerbread Skelbobs bandana won by a majority on the last post, so here's Melvyn in all his modelling glory! MOL

Doesn't he look a little cutie?

He's now modelling on three social media channels, check out his videos on:

TikTok Furst Run down the Catwalk

Instagram Second Run down the Catwalk

YouTube Bonus Second Run with Different Mewsic

He said the world needed to see more of him, plus he gets to use different mewsic in each video! MOL

Which one should he model next?

The options from the top left in a clockwise direction:

1. Mystical Unicorns

2. Glow Bugs

3. Gingerbread Skelebobs

4. Evil Eye Protection

Obviously we've only got one left, so next week he'll be strutting his stuff in the Evil Eye Protection bandana.

But the good news is, he went on another little shopping spree and has a brand new selection for mew to choose from next week, and they are Catmas themed.

  1. Y'all really do look fancy n' fabulous. Dang, that's gotta be very frustrating about your internet.

  2. Smooch and Melvyn have the right idea, for sure. We hope you get some dry weather soon to enjoy.

    Parsley, we're gonna go check out your tulip planting video now!


  3. We hope your tulips will be gorgeously delightful come springtime!

    Fun video clips, Melvyn!

    We couldn't get any of those links to work for us, they just took us to our own blogger page...LOL!

  4. Good work planting those tulips, Parsley! Nice modelling, Melvyn. The internet, or rather lack of it is absolutely ridiculous!

  5. Aw on all of you. You're all so precious.

    Only one bandana left. Such fun.

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

  6. Pandora is a beauty. Nice modeling Melvyn. XO

  7. Smoochies and lovies all around.
