Supurr Epic Greetings Furiends 

Welcome to the BBHQ Festive News Round-Up!

Well, we finally got the Catmas Tree up on Caturday teatime, and this year we decided to go with a white and gold theme. It turned out quite nice, and Melvyn is modelling it below! MOL

If mew missed last years red and white tree, check out last week's post here.

We had a supurr fun Catmas, Smooch was in charge of snoopervising lunch, and he dutifully sat in front of the oven watching the bird cook. The P.A. did remove him when it was time to start cooking everything else, as she said, "Dude, mew are seriously in the way, and are a health and safety nightmare right now!"

He promptly harrumphed and then went to snooze in front of the fire until his lunch was ready.

Melvyn tried to climb the Catmas Tree, but luckily he didn't get far, decided it was not worth the trouble, and promptly went to assault their purrsonal Catmas Tree instead - see story below! MOL

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

The B Team's purrsonal Catmas Tree with a queue forming for allotted time assaulting their tree.

They are quite civilised, and as mew can guess Fudge got first dibs on it! MOL

The P.A. has to stick all the velcro catnip toys and pom poms on again for the next kitty in the queue!

Mew wouldn't believe how much fun it is.

  1. Glad you all had a lovely Christmas. I vote for the white cat in a hat.

  2. #3, cat in a white hat fur Melvyn next time. And Fudge were you yowling at the cat toy tree? It seems you all had a furry good Catmas! Precious

  3. Sounds like you had a great Catmas, sweet pals!

    Wow, your tree is amazing! We are glad Melvyn was not successful in his quest to scale it. :)

    We vote for White Cat in a Hat next week. XO

  4. Lovely tree and decorations. Your kitties are so precious.

    I pick #3 for next week.

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

  5. FESTIVE FROLICS! or White Cat in a Hat. And that tree for everyone is wonderfully crafted and purrfect for the entire fur family! The white and gold tree is beautiful and the PA made Christmas extra beautiful for the family. Mom looked at how the PA crafted the B Team Purrsonal Camas tree! EPIC! Just E-P-I-C!

  6. Two gorgeous trees and alot of good cheer for Christmas 🎄, yay! We like festive cats for next week!

  7. Your tree is very pretty gang and I love your photos! Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  8. At Grandma's house, her dog tried to snoopervise the cooking, too. We had to banish her before someone dropped a dish.

    Your tree is beautiful and the cat tree is a delight.

    Hooray for the ducks! We love ducks here.

    All the new bandanas are pretty, and I agree, keep the festive going for a while. At least through the 12 Days of Christmas.

    The trees are understated and pretty.

  9. Dear Fabulous Gang! Thanks for the pawsome Christmas card and please forgive us for not visiting before now. What's our excuse? We don't have one. Mom is getting to the point where she just can't sit at the computer for hours like she always has.....yes she's getting (pretend I'm not saying this word) OLD. Anyway, we love all those bandananannabanas (haha) but our fave is the one with kitties on it! We send you LATE Christmas huggies and EARLY New Years Eve huggies.

    Love, Teddy and Mom Pam

  10. Super fabulous tree loved your one great idea 🌲 hope you had a great lunch and lots of fun.x🐈‍⬛😽oh nearly forgot as they're all fab I eventually decided on number 2.
