Happy Festive Friyay Pawesome Pals

Today, as it's the last Friyay of the month and 2023, we're joining in the furbulous Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop.

And we thought we'd share some epically epic festive photo fails with mew from deep, deep, deep in the BBHQ photo archive, so the following selection is from way, way back in the noughties! 

We're featuring Angel's Humphrey, Posie and Snowie, as well as Amber and myself, so the original B Team from back in the day!

It was Catmas 2008 when a friend of the P.A.'s sent a Santa Paws jacket for us, and obviously, we had never worn anything like it, EVER!

Anyhoo, mew'll soon see what we thought of it! MOL

First up is Amber.

Amber will be so annoyed we shared this most unflattering photo.

She was not a happy camper, and let me tell mew, we think this is the incident which sparked the epic crotchiness! MOL

Next up is Angel Snowie.

Angel Snowie was the only one not to flop over and have a hissy fit.

And finally, Angel Humphrey.

Angel Humphrey just collapsed on the floor like this and didn't move, he said. "Never again am I being subjected to that!"

Then he added.

"Just give me my flack jacket instead!"

It would have been impossible to put the jacket on Angel Posie, well let me say this, fingers would have been lost in the process! MOL

So here's an Angel Posie Photo Fail from December 2004.

Laser eyes at their finest, and I'm sure she would have incinerated the tree for being made to pose for this! MOL

1. The best part of 2023 was __________________________.
2. My focus word for 2024 is _______________________________.
3. A new year is a great time to _________.
4. You don’t have to wait for a new year to _________.

The P.A.'s answers are...

1. The best part of 2023 was spending it with my hubby and of course, The B Team! 

2. My focus word for 2024 is WRITE! I've got several projects on the go that need completion - LOL - let's see if I can do it!

3. A new year is a great time to start a bit of decluttering and deeper cleaning. Both of these are on my to-do list.

4. You don’t have to wait for a new year to do anything, as in the famous words of NIKE; JUST DO IT!

  1. Wow, have I missed a whole bunch of posts! Sorry...I did read through them all, though...and had some good laughs! Your Christmas Tree was beautiful, and the cats tree was great! What a good idea! Nice Christmas selfies and we'll try to get to the puzzle too.

    Those fails were way too funny! Great memories, too.

    Happy Early New Year!!

  2. Those are great fails! It looks like the jacket steals your bones just like a harness does.

  3. Very furry funny photo fails. Precious would simply turn into a Saber Tooth tiger is approached with human clothing! I think these kitties did good showing off. Maybe the jacket just caused itchy back, mol.

  4. Amber, that first photo just blew my mind; not exactly the staid, composed library kitty we know! Umm..then again, there was the rumours about your behaviour at a few birthday parties...

  5. Those were good answers and such wonderful fails to end the year. Happy New Year from all of us and thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  6. Funny photo fails! And good fill-ins too. Happy New Year!

  7. I love these! I've never been brave enough to dress my cats, although I did once put a clover flower chain on a couple of them. They were not amused.

    Thank you for linking up to Feline Friday!

  8. Very cute bloopers, especially Amber. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I am glad you are going to work on writing- I look forward to reading your book. XO
