Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

We've had quite clement weather the last few days in Mewton-Clawson, although it has got a little nippy after dark. Plus we've had a little bit of rain, as February Fill Dyke didn't happen this year, and if mew haven't heard of that term before, though we know Eric and Flynn's mum will definitely of heard of it. It means that usually, the month of February is wet, whether that be from melting snow or seasonal rain and said water fills all the dykes and ditches. Though this year so far, it hasn't been as wet as normal, and yes the climate change fluffers are already jumping on the drought bandwagon, ready to roll it out to a house near mew in the near future.

And in other Springy news, guess who we saw at 10.27 and 15 seconds on the security camera on Caturday evening? One of the hedgehogs, now we're not sure which one it is, and the P.A. went outside immediately to put some food and water under the garden port. We aren't sure how long this one has been awake or coming into the garden searching for food. But we do hope he or she will amble back just to check again for snacks. So we'll keep mew posted on that. As last summer, sadly they weren't around that much, we think they went off exploring the local vicinity and looking for love. But it would be lovely if the little tribe came back.

Mew can see the video's on our YouTube channel, there were six in total starting from September to November 2021.

First up in the news this week

We Are Growing Carnivorous Catticus Smooch's

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® How To Grow Carnivorous Catticus Smooch's

This is a brand new genus of plant, in fact, it's so tremendously rare there's only one in the entire world at the moment, and that's at BBHQ! MOL

Now at this point, we're not sure if it will multiply or self-seed, but we are watching it very closely to see what it does next. We do know that this furry, meat-eating plant likes tuna, it likes it a lot, and we're going to try salmon next. However, we are being extra careful as we don't want to end up as its next snack!

Next up in the news

 Pandora's Got Her Glow On

Pandora is notoriously difficult to take a photo of, as:

A. She's camera shy

B. She's so fast and runs around a lot

C. Her dark colouring is purrfect camouflage around the house, especially when she's in the scratch post condos 

So we were quite astounded when she sat on the bar table in the catservatory the other day and posed most elegantly for this photo.

Doesn't she look purrty?

Finally this week

Melvyn's Modelling The Top Bandana Pick

This was last week's top pick, the lovely Baa-Tastic bandana as voted for by mew, our wonderpurr furiends, and doesn't it look epic?

Isn't it totally sheepalicious? 

Melvyn picked three different mewsic tracks to walk down the catwalk this week, which one do mew like the best?

Check out the videos on:

Which one should he model next?

Here's the March selection.

The options from the top left in a clockwise direction:

1. Baaa-Tastic

2. Funny Bunnies

3. Lucky Clover

4. Psychedelic Kitties

We've only got one bandana left from this selection, the Funny Bunnies, but never fear we have a brand new selection for mew next week to choose from, and if the P.A. gets time she'll make some extra special Easter-themed bandanas.

  1. We love that sheepalicious bandana, Melvyn! We wish WE could grow a carnivorous Catticus Smooch here. And Pandora, that is a lovely glowing photo of you!

    How neat that one of the hedgehogs is back. We do hope the whole gang shows up soon. :)


  2. Our dykes certainly got filled. After last year's drought and ridiculous temperatures the reservoirs were the lowest since 1976. They said it would take at least 18 months to refill them plus the underground water levels. December was colder than usual but since then it has hardly stopped with the torrential rain! Surprise surprise, all the levels are back where they should be and Burrator has been overflowing since January.
    That is an interesting carnivorous Smooch plant. Did you get him from the Little Shop of Horrors? That is a lovely photo of Pandora, and Melvyn looks good in his bandana.

  3. You're all so adorable. I love the Pandora glow. Glowing is a good thing.

    I know I'll pick the right bandana this week. I pick Funny Bunnies.

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

  4. So the white floofy plant is not a Venus Fly trap? Curious. I'd love to see a hedge hog. Here we have waking ground hogs, oh so much bigger and fur-ousishly more hungry. Call them "whistle pigs" sometimes, as they whistle warnings and alerts. Now the bandanna, I think the bunny hop one fur next month, Easter like, has my vote. Precious

  5. I know you say you have comment moderation on, but my comments usually come up right away. I did comment this morning so can you check it is not in spam, thanks.

  6. Love all the photos especially Pandora! And what fun growing a carnivorous Smooch plant! Nice to have a hedgehog return. Melvin looks spiffy, looking forward to seeing him wear Funny Bunnies next week!

  7. Nice bandana Melvyn. I have a tough time getting photos of my black cats and torties because of the darker colors. XO

  8. How cool to have a HedgeHogCam! Pandora, you sure are glowing. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  9. Hope your 'Hedgies' return! Nice 'sheepish' bandana, and Pandora is so beauteous! we couldn't see the tiktoc or the Instagram videos, in fact we were told our Instagram account was suspended...what??

  10. Hubby end I laughed outloud at your new species of plant life!


❤️*Waves Paw* we love comments, thanks so much fur leaving one ❤️
