Epic Wednesday Greetings Furiends

Welcome to the BBHQ midweek news round-up!

How's your week going? 

Mew may remember last week when we introduced mew to the red T-Rex? Strangley enough the P.A. went back to the garden centre and bought another one, as she said, "We can't just have one T-Rex, when there's two in the book!"

So meet T-Rex #2!

So meet LilyDeth on the left and Sawragon on the right, and if mew missed the latest chapter of Claws of Terror, click here to find out what happened yesterday - OH MY COD mew won't fluffing believe it!

Anyhoo enough of dinosaurs, let's look at this weeks news.

First up in the news 

Who's Taken Fudge's Place at Teatime?

The BBHQ Midweek News Round-Up ©BionicBasil® Who's Taken Fudge's Place at Teatime

There was a little kerfuffle and a nose was severely out of joint on Monday teatime.

Fudge was late entreing the laundry and found that his bowl and place setting was being used by Melvyn, who normally eats on top of the counter next to the sink - out of shot on the left. Pandora was in Smooch's usual place and Smooch had taken over Pandora's place, the only one in the right spot was Amber, and nopawdy EVER EVER messes with Amber's place! MOL

Parlsey was in Melvyn's spot on top of the counter and poor Fudge had got no bowl at all, and this was due to an oversight by the P.A., this heinous oversight was swiftly corrected and Fudge ended up down the other end of the laundry next to Amber. And let mew tell mew, he didn't like it one bit, as Amber then after finishing her own meal, decided that it wasn't enough and promptly shoved Fudge out of the way and ate his.

Can mew imagine, it was beyond a travesty and Fudge was mealess, but luckily for him Parsley was quite quick in eating his meal, and so Fudge ended up on the counter with a fresh bowl and ate in peace, as Amber can't jump anymore.

 Smooch Braved The Cold

It's been pawsitively Baltic the last few days, and we're hopeful that the snow will miss us, as that weather front has moved northwards.

Smooch hasn't been outside much as it's been so frigid, but Monday there was a tiny window of sun and he braved the outdoors. He found a sheltered spot in the courtyard inbetween the water butt and a large chive plant, and surprisingly the icy wind didn't reach his little sun spot.

He only had about ten minutes before he conceded defeat as he said, and I quote, "My bum was fluffing freezing!"

And finally this week

Melvyn's Modelling The Top Bandana Pick

This week the #4 bandana, aka Festive Frolics won by a whisker.

Mew maybe wondering what on fluff is going on with this picture? Well, it's like this, normally Melvyn does his modelling on Tuesday morning after this third breakfast and fourth catnap, but this week we had to bring his schedule forward to Monday as the P.A. was unavailable on Tuesday. Needless to say, Melvyn was NOT best purrleased at all, on any level but he conceded and this was the result! MOL

We still think he looks really cute though, even in his petulant pose, and Fudge and Smooch got in on the catwalk today too... fluff me, it was all happening!  

Check out his videos on:

The January Collection:

1. Catmas Trees on Pink

2. Festive Cats

3. White Cat in a Hat

4. Festive Frolics

Next week Melvyn will model the pink one, and the following week we've got a surprise bandana to share, and we think it may be a Valentine's theme as we're heading into February.

  1. Oh dear, the P.A. is going to have to add name tags to the seating arrangements! Fun photos gang! Thanks for joining Angel Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  2. Melvyn, we love that tongue out pose and you look great in that bandana! Smooch, go back inside where it's warm, okay?

  3. Such a dining mistake is a disaster in the making! I'm just glad everyone got fed eventually.

    Outside for ten minutes is plenty in this weather, it's cold here, too.

    Melvyn, I do enjoy your modeling and can't wait to see those trees.

  4. You are brave to stand your ground during a dinosaur invasion

  5. Poor Fudge looked quite confused standing back and watching everybody else eating.
    The PA likes to live dangerously allowing those two red T Rex in the house!

  6. Fudge, how could the PA not count heads correctly! Git that bowl ready!
    And Smooch, I'm in bed 'cause it's too cold to even look out and snows on
    the ground too. Precious

  7. Aww, fudge, FUDGE!
    Have been casting around for a word to use instead of frigid, Arctic, Canadian Cold now I'm using your word: BALTIC!

  8. Poor Fudge. I'm sure mom took care of this and Amber makes me laugh. She'll always have her meal and anyone else's she decides to eat. Made me chuckle.

    I pick #1 for next week and I know I'll be right this time.

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

  9. Looking good Melvyn. Stay inside where it is warm Smooch. I am looking forward to Amber's post. XO

  10. I love Baltic too. How appropriate to where you are and how useful and "exotic" for ME! Looks like you'll model #1. I will wait to see your surprise. I enjoyed seeing everyone at teatime.

  11. Brrr, it's been Baltic here too, which is somewhat unusual. Glad Fudge did get his chow and smooch did decide to return inside. Good walk, Melvyn!

  12. Oh Fudge at least you got fed after all 😽 looking great Melvyn and Fudge😸
