Furbulous Greetings Supurr Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

It's still been raining at BBHQ, in fact, we think it's been the wettest summer for years. But hey
ho, so it goes, mew can't have purrfect summer weather every year! MOL

We must show mew the catnip plant, it's coming along furbulously, and we keep sampling a leaf or two, well, mew have to test the product! MOL

And here is the new shed/barn door update.

The P.A. got lashings of wood preserve on them last week, and then she applied two coats of red undercoat, and this is what they looked like.

And on Monday she applied the first coat of the BBHQ signature red gloss.

It looks a bit patchy, though mew can't tell from the picture, however after another two coats it'll be fine. They will be applied on Tuesday and Wednesday, and then Cat Dad will hang them on Caturday. We can't wait to see them in situ!

And the old doors will be headed for a purrmanent retirement! MOL

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

Smooch and Pandora were enjoying a little gazebo time when Fudge appeared at the patio doors and was quite hissed off that he wasn't outside too!

Pandora, Parsley and Smooch love the basket with the red wool rug and little heart cushion, they can spend hours snoozing here.

Finally this week

Parsley Doing A Bit Of Birdwatching

And Parsely has taken up birdwatching, and occasionally (serial offender) nomming! 

He's suddenly got a liking, rather too much for our taste, for harassing the bird population at BBHQ.

Not since Snowie departed has anypawdy been interested in the birds, but this year Parsely has flexed his pantherene claws five times in as many weeks. He's never been interested in the slightest previously, so we don't know what's flipped the switch, other than the birds tormenting him and calling him 'Soft Sauce, the biggest pussy in Mewton-Clawson!'

So our new nickname for him is Fannibal Hector, and Smooch keeps laughing as he asks, "Did mew have some fava beans and a nice chianti?"

We told Smooch to sleep with one eye open! MOL

  1. The P.A. has sure been busy. Love the photos gang but why the bird hunting all of a sudden? Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

  2. All the photos (and the catnip and doors) are looking great. OUr fave this week is that pose by Melvyn. :)


  3. The doors are looking good! That is a great pose, Melvyn, Got to keep in tip top shape. If the birds are teasing you Parsley, they only have themselves to blame.

  4. Dear Parsley, I have been enjoying my patio and am keeping my eyes upward as the tiny hummingbirds come right in above me to the gladiolus. Lynn keeps one eye on me and one on the birdies. I'm not allowed to taste them. Lynn is looking fur-ward to seeing the new doors.

  5. You're all so talented. All doing your thing and letting us enjoy watching you.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

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

  6. Love the photos and that's a robust catnip plant!

  7. That is the biggest catnip plant I hae ever seen

  8. Nice to see so many of you. The door looks great and so does the catnip. XO

  9. Your pose made us MOL Melvin, it's all open up...feel free...MOL...Love the colour of the doors and the catnip is huge and looks delicious too. Granny was asking herself if you have a big fence that you can't go out of the garden, kitties? Double Pawkisses for a Happy Day all of you🐾😽💞
