Furbulous Greetings Supurr Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

Can we have a drumroll purrlease?

Mew remember the barn/shed doors, of course mew do! MOL

But if not, or it's your first time visiting BBHQ, here's a little recap on the rotten old doors, which the P.A. thought she could just use a bit of wood filler on and then repaint them. That is until Cat Dad removed the weatherboard at the bottom and revealed the full extent of the rot.

Just look at the new ones, aren't they epically epic?

Look at that shiny red paint, so many levels of pawesomeness! 

The P.A. still has to paint the door frame white, and then use a little bit of black gloss on the screws in the new hinges, but all in all, we're thrilled. Cat Dad did a truly furbulous job of making and hanging them. So these should last a few decades, obviously with routine maintenance and painting.

When the frame is finished, they'll get a wash and dry, so they'll look even more shiny. They got quite dusty sitting under the carport for the last couple of weeks as we waited for the paint to go off and harden.

But overall, we're delighted.

Anyhoo, let's look at this week's top headlines.

First up in the news this week

Pandora's Purrsonal Training

Pandora was snoopervising in the fitness room the other day, she said it was her turn. 

The P.A was going to use the mini-trampoline, but Pandora had other ideas, so while Pandora purrched on the trampoline the P.A. was made to do sit-ups and push-ups, jeez Pandora's a fierce trainer! MOL

Next up in the news

 Parsley's Flat Out

Parsley spent his day snoozing in the window on Caturday, as the field at the back was getting mown, so all cats had to stay indoors until the tractor and monster mower had departed.

He was pretty fluffed off, but he said, "I did enjoy the extra snooze!"

Finally this week

Fudge's On A High - Again!

Fudge, oh Fudge, why?

Why is it vitally impawtant that mew ascend to great heights?

Although, in today's photo, he's only on the canopy above the library door, normally he'd be ambling along the ridge of the roof behind him! MOL

So the P.A. was thankful for that, as sometimes he just sits on top of the carport looking down into the main street below, for all and sundry to bask in his magnificence.

A few weeks ago, there he was on top of the carport his gingerliciousness on display for all to see, and a family with small kiddies were walking by, and a little girl starts screaming about the 'pinger' (ginger) cat on the roof. 

Needless to say, she wanted to take Fudge home and her parents had purrsaude (carry) her out of sight, as Fudge walked along the ridge and watched them vanish around the corner.

Yes, he's turning heads in Mewton-Clawson, but only when he's on the roof! MOL

  1. Fudge, at least you didn't tell that little girl to fluff off; you couldn't mistreat anyone who so adores your handsomeness.
    The Big Red Doors are brilliant, and my vote is for bears.

  2. The red doors look so good, mew guys! Everyone's looking great, especially mew, Parsley (of course, it could be because we would like to take a nap right about now). We vote for the Bear Necessities bandana, Melvyn. :)

  3. The new doors look great, and so do all of you! I vote for #3 bandana.

  4. Furrtastic doors. your hoomans are talented and hard working, just like Parsley looks, mol.
    Love the cat steps to the window. And Fudge, I would go high in the dark of 5:30 AM on my
    catio if I had such a roof too. Precious psst I will show off my gift tomorrow.

  5. Those red doors are simply fabulous! We have white garage doors that are looking pretty ratty but we can't afford new one so filler it will have to be!

    We love the steps up to the window! Were they custom-made?

    Our favourite bandana is bottom right, bats, cats etc.

    The Chans

  6. Great doors and I love your home. So inviting.

    I love the steps. We did the same for our Angel Little Bit. It's what we do.

    Cats, bats and Rravens is my pick.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. Scritches to all the kitties and a hug to mom. ♥

  7. teal starz!! love the doorz!!! really love dee stairz

  8. I vote for 2!! And the Cat Daddy dd a superb job on the new doors and the PA certainly did a superb job with all she did as well. They are glorious looking! And Pandora...I am glad you aren't here snoopervising. It's hard enough with Katie saying to "lift that barge! Tote that bale" meaning lift the weights...tote yourself into the room and start the zumba stuffs.

  9. Love the red doors, and all the kitty pictures! Fudge, what a climber you are! I like the foxy bandana!

  14. Sorry only way I can message you. The bandanas great mom & me pick number 3 although we're not to keen on bats mom watched a program showing how intelligent they were not as intelligent as us no way.xx😻😻🐈‍⬛

  15. Love those photos gang and boy that new red door looks totally fabulous! Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
