Epic Wednesday Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

How's your week going? 

It's been rather nippy here the last few days, and on some days the frost hasn't even budged. We've had to defrost the birdbaths and top up all the feeders most days as more and more feathered furiends are coming into the garden.

We were hoping to get some of the bareroot plants potted up, but it's been way too cold, so they're still in a cardboard box waiting for a warmer day.

And we've just started our Valentine's Special Crating with Cats project, we think mew're going to love what we made this time, we think it's hilarious. We'll also be rerunning all our previous Valentine's craft projects starting next week, so if mew're in the mood to get creative, we've got mew covered.

First up in the news 


Mew may remember a few weeks ago we reviewed the Catnap cave? Well, it's been such a big hit with The B Team and here's both Melvyn and Smooch using it in their own styles!  MOL

Melvyn got inside to snuggle.

Whereas Smooch decided that he wanted to nest on it and flattened down the top.

Fudge and Pandora Snuggling on The Sofa

As it's been a little fresh in Mewton-Clawson this week, much time has been spent snuggling in the sitting room, and this was Fudge and Pandora the other day.

  1. The life of a housecat...this tired human would like to spend some time napping on the sofa too!

  2. Great 'newsy' items today, we loved how Melvyn was PB'd by Fudge, LOL!!

    Hope you get some warmer weather so you the planting can get started.

  3. We are getting the same weather although today is just above freezing and should get m̶i̶l̶d̶e̶r̶ less cold for the next few days. Melvyn is an excellent model.

  4. Oh that's a good review of the cat caves. We want one now but we have a feeling one of us will pounce on the other while in the cave MOL! Melvyn you look pawsome in the Steampunk bandana! Can't wait to see you model the pink flamingos!

  5. Awww on all of you. Adorable and then some.

    I'm happy to say that the flamingos will finally get shown. I love flamingos.

    Have a purrfect day. Scritches all around and my best to your wonderful mom. ♥

  6. Aww, cute pictures and videos today! Chilly weather snuggling is ongoing here, too. Melvyn looks spiffy in the Steampunk Cats bandanna. Looking forward to seeing him wear the flamingos!

  7. That cave looks like a really cozy spot no matter how it is shaped! Happy snuggle times everyone and thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  8. Nice to see so many of you. We have a cat cave and everyone prefers to be on it instead of in it. I can't wait to see what you came up with for Valentine's Day. XO

  9. Loved watching Melvyn model the bandana. Great to see you all out doors. Frosty here in Scotland . xx😻💗🐾
