Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

Gosh what a busy week!

Sadly there was no painting achieved because the weather wasn't clement enough, and we were pretty much bombarded with showers and intermittent sun for most of the holiday weekend. So that job will have to be postponed until more favourable conditions arise.

But in other news, remember the raised beds that we built last year? Here's the link for a quick recap, and they're looking blooming marvellous right now and we thought we'd share a photo with mew.

The actual beds need painting again with a different wood stain, as what we used was for the fence (that's all we had at the time, and it was the right colour) and it sadly has pretty much washed off over the winter months, but that aside we're absolutely thrilled with the outcome. We'll share a full start-to-finish on this project in the summer in a Gardening with Cats post, so mew can see how it progressed. Oh, and the statue is called Daphne, Grampaw bought her at an auction and gave her to the P.A., and we've got some lovely plants to go in for the summer, so once they're all settled and looking fabulous, we'll share it for your purrleasure.

We've also done a couple of interviews with Bored Panda in the last couple of weeks and here are the links:

50 Of The Most Hilarious “Unexplainable Cat Images”

 Before And After Adoption Pictures Of Their Cats

Mew'll have to scroll down the page to read both, as there was another interview first. And the text is interspersed between the photos.

Warning: some of the pictures on the before and after interview are a little graphic, so not for everypawdy, but they all have happy endings which is wonderful.

Mew remember in last week's post, this highly carnivorous plant was moved to a larger pot and was fully upright - click here to see the picture.

Well, he's now starting to spread outwards, the warmer the sun, the more he spreads! MOL

He'll be taking over the garden soon!

Fudge Now Thinks He's Like The Catnip Carrot

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® Fudge Now Identifies As A Carrot

Did mew see our eggstra special Easter Crafting with Cats? If not just follow this link to check out the supurr furry catnip carrots we made.

Well, Fudge now thinks he's like the catnip carrot, so we asked him in the most polite manner.

Melvyn asked, "Dude, why are mew like the catnip carrot?"

Fudge replied, "Well, it's orange, it's supurr furry and it has a little fluffy tuft sticking out of the top, and I am exactly the same!"

Who can argue with that, he is just like the catnip carrot! MOL

  1. Oh, Smooch!
    The crystals bandana, paws down!

  2. That carnivorous catticus Smooch is really spreading out! MOL! And Fudge, hey, if that makes you happy, it sounds good to us. We hope you are at least a NIP carrot. :)

    The raised beds are EPIC. We love how they look and the plants look so happy. Looking fab, Melvin. How about Ducky and Lambkin next?


  3. We like Lamb'a'licious!

    Those raised garden beds are beautiful!

    We enjoyed seeing all the videos, though we can't watch the instagram ones anymore, we've been locked out of there, cannot even access it.

  4. We vote fur number 4 Lambie and Ducky. And of course, we always vote fur a photo of lovely Kitties all the time. Lynn is jealous of the well planted and beautiful raised flower beds. Watch out fur the spreading cat-cactus plant. Soon you'll be able to divide into 2 and have more purrs.

  5. I love your raised beds filled with beautiful plants/flowers. Wow.

    I love all your kitties too. So precious.

    I say #4 for next week. So adorable.

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

  6. Beautiful raised flower beds! And that Smooch plant is just too funny! Great cat walk by Melvyn, just love the roll over. Fudge is looking nice and orange and so like a carrot! I like Ducky and Lambkin, but all the bandanas are cute!

  7. The Carnivorous Catticus Smooch is growing and spreading well! The flower beds look lovely.

  8. Don't get eaten Smooch. Looking good Melvyn. I go with #4 for next week. The flower beds are amazing- epic. XO

  9. YOur flower beds are beautiful! Love all of those fun photos gang! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
