Epic Greetings Furbulous Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

Good gravy guys, welcome to the Spooky Season, hopefully, the new blog header is up. We temporarily used last years, as we ran out of time last week, but all paws crossed it will be live by the time mew are reading this! MOL The Halloween header won't go up until later in the month.

We mentioned a few days ago, that we were going to try and get the catnip plants cropped, but it's done nothing but rain, and it's no good cropping it when it's wet, as it will just dry mouldy. If things dry up in the next few days, we'll be good to go.

Oh, and we were surprised in the garden the other day, as normally our lupins finish blooming in July, and even though they get dead-headed, they've never produced more flowers later in the season, until now!

Just look at this.

One lone lupin, in the most delightful shade of blue literally just popped up. This is unheard of for BBHQ, so we're feeling epically blessed that this little plant pulled out all the stops to produce this magnificent bloom.

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

First up in the news

 Smooch, Fudge and Pandora Waiting For The Catwalk Show

Smooch, Fudge and Pandora were lurking around the BBHQ catwalk on Monday, waiting for Melvyn to get his strut on and model the new bandanas from the October Collection.

Next up in the news

Parsley's On Pawtrol Part 2

Parsley is still on Pawtrol, as he's really enjoying the extra outside time, though this week he said he wasn't facing the camera, as he was waiting for the squirrel, who was in the tree stealing the hazelnuts, and yes the little blighter comes and takes everything.

If mew want to see the squirrel, check out a video of him/her in the deodar tree a couple of weeks ago making a right noise, here on YouTube:

Cheeky Squirrel

We don't know who he/she was yelling at, but somepawdy definitely had a boggle going off! MOL

  1. The lupin flower is a delight! So are all the kitties.

    I hope you get some good weather for cropping catnip.

    The spider webs and the pumpkins and cat (one and two on the top row) are my favorites.

  2. I have had flowers comr back this year after being given up and cut back. Summer has been stubborn.

  3. How amazing and special that your lupine is late-season blooming!

    It's good to see you all today -- Smooch, Fudge, and Pandora, you look so ready for the catwalk. And Parsley, that is some good patrolling!

    Melvyn, you look dapper as always. How about the skelebobs next?

  6. Great modelling Melvyn, even though Fudge did try to put you off your stride. The lupin is lovely.

  7. We think the Lupine feels very much at home and won't be lonely anymore next year😸She is gorgeous btw💙 What a great show today. We love the catwalks of Melvin on instagram and now too. We like the nr. 2 Pumpkins and black cats bandana. We sure it suits you too.

  8. The lupin is beautiful. Wow.

    All your kitties are so precious. I love the tie on Melvyn. He's so handsome.

    Ravens is my pick for next week.

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

  9. We have a lot of zombie plants: We thought they were dead four weeks ago and they have rebloomed.

  10. Love the lupin, such intense blue! Also love the new header and, seeing all the kitty pictures, and Melvyn on his walks. Let's see ... I like pumpkins and black cats, and ravens for next week!
