Supurr Epic Greetings Furiends 

Welcome to the BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up!

We had snow!

This was BBHQ on Sunday morning, it was a nice covering and lovely to see for about a whole ten minutes! MOL

We were rather pleased when it began to rain later on Sunday evening, and by Monday it had all gone, but everywhere is starting to flood again. Cat Dad even had to get the water pump out at work on Monday morning as the snow melt and extra water was running off the hill again and flooding the car park.

And some of the local villages were flooding again, seriously this weather is bonkers!

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

First up in the news

 Fudge Can't Believe It Snowed

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® Fudge Can't Believed It Snowed

Fudge was quite hissed off as he couldn't go outside on Sunday, not because it was too cold but because it makes his fur frizzy, and if there's one thing Fudge can't stand, it's frizzy fur! MOL

Next up in the news

 Smooch In The Outdoor Basket

Smooch got a little damp on his garden safari on Monday, so he got in his basket under the gazebo to have a few minutes before the P.A. came to tell him that she needed to get the blankets and put them through the washing machine as they'd got cobwebs on.

Smooch said he didn't care about the cobwebs and that the blanket washing would wait until another day! MOL

So the P.A. decided to clean up some of the leaves that were lurking instead. Last weekend Cat Dad and the P.A. had a big leaf gathering fest in the courtyard and the patio, but there's still more to come off, new ones appear every day.

  1. Fudge cannot stay fluffy, if he's frizzy!
    Foxy bandana is my vote.

  2. The Weasel Wonderland is fun, and looks great on you, Melvyn. Look at all the snow you had. Sorry to hear you got rain and flooding afterwards, though.

  3. Snow is pretty as long as you are not standing in it

  4. That was pretty snow! We haven't had any yet in our corner of France.

    We vote for Bandana #2, Catmas Cats!

    The Chns

  5. Catmas Cats bandana next time Melvyn! You look so furry handsome. And our snow has not piled up any yet. It melts fast thank goodness. We are so furry sorry to hear the floods are back. This is not at all nice fur any of you. Stay high and dry. Precious

  6. Catmas Cats please. Adorable.

    Look at your sweet babies and the snow is amazing. So beautiful. We rarely get snow here and the last time I can remember snow was in the 70s.

    Yikes on the flooding. Not fun.

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

  7. Me and Momma are envious of yoor big leaf gathering project, while Wabbit and Momma are envious of yoor snow. Not me. I have no interest in getting my toes fwoze. I vote for Melvyn to meowdel the one with the birds on it. Handsome in blue.

  8. You did well once you got going, Melvyn! That was a lot of snow. We got a mere dusting and now we have heavy rain and flooding again. I vote for Foxy Festivities!
    Thank you for your card which arrived today in our once a week if we are lucky delivery. I posted all mine on Monday so hopefully they won't be too long.

  9. Snow, yikes! Love the pictures of Fudge and Smooch! Melvyn's lookin' good on that catwalk too! We like Catmas Cats for next time!

  10. The snow is very pretty but I hate hearing you had flood stuff again. Your photos are all purrfect sweeties. Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  11. I like snow that goes away fast. Looking good Melvyn. I like the cat bandana for next week. :) XO

  12. I do hope the rain slacks up. As for snow, well, it's going to snow where you are, so it's par for the course. Snow down here in the swamps is not a normal or good thing, we don't get it often.

    Melvyn, you always do an excellent job. Remind me to tell you the duck story someday, and I can't wait to see you model the duck bandana.

  13. SNow fell here too, about thrr=ee inches, but it was gon in a couple of days.

    We love the Catmas Bandana!

    Flooding again?? Phooey! Hope it wasn't too terrible, and that the pump did its work for you.
