Epic Wednesday Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

How's your week going? 

We're glad the festive season has come and gone, and later this week we'll be taking down the decorations, well actually there are not that many, as we only tend to have a tree and a couple of garlands. Not very festive we know, but we are at the bahumbug age now and elaborate Catmas decor is so not on our radar! MOL

Anyhoo it rained a lot, again, and this was the courtyard yesterday.

It's one giant puddle, getting deeper by the hour, but it's ok because we have no plans of going outside in a downpour like that, and there's no way for Amber to get to the library now, well not unless she gets a dingy MOL

At work, all the surrounding fields are about two feet deep, and Cat Dad is just about to get the pump ready, as mew can never be too careful when it comes to flooding.

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

First up in the news 

Fudge's Severe Case of Catnip Kickers

Our pawesome pal Eric sent us a parcel of catnip kickers for Catmas, and Fudge didn't know which one to kick first! MOL

He's still deliberating on which one is his ultimate favourite, oh and he's not sharing with anypawdy else, they are all his.

Next up in the news

Pandora's So Over Catmas

Pandora wants to know when life can return to normal, as she is so over Catmas. She wants the tree gone so she can take over her condo again at the top of the scratch post, the reason she doesn't like being in there at the moment is because of the lights, she says the glare interferes with her snoozing.

Don't worry Pandora, it will be gone at the weekend! MOL

And finally this week

Melvyn's Modelling The Top Bandana Pick

This week it was a tie between the White Cat in a Hat and Festive Cats, so Melvyn chose the former to model for mew today! Also, we've just realised that there are five Wednesdays in this month and we've only got four banandas picked, but never fear Melvyn has decided that on the fifth and final news segment of the month, he's going to surprise mew with something completely different!

Oh did we have fun making the video, Smooch and Fudge were determined that they were being included today. But Melvyn like the true professional he is, did a truly stellar catwalk run! MOL

  1. Dang, that is a lo of rain, mew guys. Stay dry -- and fluffy!

    Fudge, it appears you are the king of the kickers. And Pandora, things will be back to regular real soon. You will see. :)

    Melvyn, how about Festive Cats next week?


  2. I do hope you don't flood, it's no fun at all.

    All will get back to normal soon, although it may be a bit of a letdown for many.

    I still like the trees bandana. Well, I like them all, so whatever wins is fine with me.

  3. First of all:
    Happy New Year to all of you!

    We are trying to catch up...lost so many days of visiting, due to the holiday business and then working three shifts in a row...which takes the wind out of one's sails when you only work 2 days a week....

    Wow, that is way too much water.Hope the rain will give you a beak, so some sunshine can help dry it up.

    We like the Festive Cats bandana!

    Us here, well, each year the peeps put up less and less...MOL! Too much work to clean it all up, later, they say, teehee!

  4. Considering all the obstructions, Melvyn did very well with his modelling. I vote for Catmas trees on pink.

  5. #4 Melvyn, frolics! Fudge you hit the jack pot of catnippy toys! Pandora, my cure fur missing the light in my eyes is to go to the tip top of the clothes closet and Lynn daren't turn on the light to see what she is going to wear. Me, I just keep my grey onesie cleaned up. Precious

  6. dood…we pix number two, and whoa! we hope everee onez place will stay
    flood free…we noe all bout waterz in de houz wear it shuld KNOT bee…🙀

  7. Nip is a good thing when it's raining outside. It's a good thing all the time.

    I pick the Catmas Trees on Pink.

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

  8. Y'all look totally fabulous! I sure hope the water doesn't get any deeper and that the flooding never happens! Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  9. Wow, cute pics, and multi-cat walk! Good goin', Marvin! Hope that water doesn't go higher. Send us some, we're in a drought! We vote Festive Cats for next week.

  10. We'll go with #2, festive cats. We've also had a lot of rain. When will it stop?

    The Chans

  11. You all look great. I like every one of those bandanas. I would go with the catmas trees next week. That is a lot of rain. :( XO

  12. I love this post - so funny and entertaining. As for the bandana, I vote for Festive Frolics! I am joining you from Thankful Thursday - I am number 16 on the linky if you want to stop by!
