Colouring with Cats #58 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays & WE WANT WARMS, WHEN DO WE WANT THEM? NOW!

Supurr Monday greetings beautiful furriends

Well, guess what we had offur the weekend?  The Beast From The East Part Deux! 

Like seriously, we went from +12C to -6C in less than 12 hours and got covered in the white stuff again - brrrrrrr - I mean come mew weather gods, let Spring do its thing purrlease!

While I like a snow day as much as the next kitty, mew know it's getting a little boring now with all the cold, and me and The B Team are READY, like really READY fur some consistent warms, not these empty purromises of warms, and then they're not even really REAL warms either, just a half-baked attempt at a temporary warm.


Mew know it's bad when Fudge starts complaining about uncontrollable FLOOF FRIZZ!

Meanwhile I stayed here:

But soon wurd spread and I was no longer alone, and found myself having to pass on my uber warms via osmosis to Smooch, who then furry kindly passed them on once more to Pandora.

A WARMS TRAIN IN MOTION - get your thermal imagining out and mew'll see the heat transference! MOL

Anyhoo, we do hope mew've all have a totally pawesome weekend and that mew're ready fur the week ahead, so let's jump right in and start as always with our little breathing exercise, which we're sure mew all have down paw by now...  but if mew've furgotten, stop what mew're doing fur a moment and take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Smooch is here again to offur mew assistance in getting your OM's on and Zen Harmonies happening, close your eyes and follow his instructions.

Don't mew feel better already?  I know we do!

All the mandala's featured are created & designed by us.

So without further ado here's this weeks mandala.
Just right click the image to save and print it...

And here's our finished version...

Coloured with felt tip pens.

If mew'd like to share your peeps pawesome artwurk feel free to upload it to our Facebook page at:

Bionic Basil & The 'B' Team @Facebook

as we'd really, really love to see your finished mandalas.

Don't furget mew can download our free Colouring with Cats ~ Books One & Two here, if mew haven't already done so:

3 fur 1 Selfies on The Sunday Selfies & This Weeks Top Selfie Tip

Supurr Sunday salutations pawesome pals

Welcome to another selfie selection and today our theme is:

3 fur 1

And almost nailed it! MOL

As mew can see, Pandora, Smooch and Fudge worked their floofy tails off [well not really] to get this shot!

I'm calling it:

Purrsonal expression within the confines of a shared selfie 

This Weeks Top Selfie Tip:

Last week we spoke about the impawtance of good lighting and fur this weeks top tip, we're talking about avoiding shadows.

So unless mew mew want a dark patch on your gorgeous furry fizzog, we suggest mew take your selfie while facing the sun if outdoors or with your back to it.  No weird side angles, well only if that's the artistic approach mew're aftur.  But fur a nice clean shot remember either behind mew or in front fur the best outcome. Inside this is a little more tricky with lamps and offurhead lights, so if mew can, use the same advice as fur outdoors unless mew have a selfie-light.

This is ours:

The one we have just clips on the iPhone - it's a couple of inches in diameter - and saves having to use the flash which we hate as it always makes mew have laser eyes. Using one of these removes the necessity of using the flash so often and it stops shadows, so mew get a nice even tone to your pic. 

We actually bought ours from Aldi fur less than £5, it has 3 light settings - as mew can see above - depending on what's required for the pic at paw.

Now we're not pho-tog experts at all, this is just what we've learnt offur the years of taking endless pics, and trying to take better pics.  Though we're sure most of our pics are still quite rubbish in the eyes of a professional, but then we aren't professionals, just a bunch of heathen cats trying to improve our skillz! MOL

If mew have any selfie tips, let us know and we'll share them here next week.

Hope mew're all having a great weekend and we'll be back on the morrow with another gorgeous mandala fur mew to colour.

Wishing mew a supurr chilled day with lots of snoozy snuggles

Fashion with Felines starring Pandora Von Der Plume ~ The Feline Fashionista ~ Featuring The Starry Night Bag by Irregular Choice [Or As I 'Av Renamed It:- The Valentine Bag]

Welcome to

Bonjour mes amis!

And velcome to my second Fashion vith Felines post!

Bringing mew the cutest, fun trends in kitty themed fashion fur your pet hooman.

This veek I'm sharing an absolutely dahling bag from the uber funky brand Irregular Choice.  If mew've neffur 'eard of them before they are a rather unique company specializing in really fun styles, though some of the rather avant garde styles might not be furfur effuryone, but I can assure mew there are some tamer things on their website too.  The P.A. 'as bought shoes from them before, though a long time ago in Australia before they even got to the UK and she loves them.

The B Team and I purrchased this purrticular bag fur the P.A.'s birthday last month and I've been pawsitively beside myself to share it vith mew all.  The official name of the bag is: Starry Night, but I 'av renamed it to the Valentine bag as it's got our vunderpurr buddy on it as mew'll see in a moment.

Now that gives an idea, I need to 'av some uber cool fashion items named aftur me too...The Pandora Bag, I think that 'as a nice ring to it... 

Now lets' talk about the purracticalities: 

The bag is just so cute, vith 'olographic clouds and an 'olographic faux snakeskin moon, glittery stars, purple hearts and pearl detail on a lush background of navy crushed velvet. The cute black kitty is so fluffy just like Valentine, if that doesn't make mew vant to get one then I don't know vhat vill! MOL

It has two straps which are the purrfect length to comfortably wear on the shoulder. There are three large pockets, 2 outer ones vith nice, wide side-to-side zips so mew can open it right up, and the middle larger pocket 'as a magnetic clasp. It also comes vith an adjustable shoulder/cross-body strap in the navy crushed velvet with the matching 'olographic piping.

Vhile not a huge bag, mew can certainly get lots in it and as the P.A. carries nearly effurything but the kitchen sink, it's just purrfect and as an added bonus, it 'as a fabulous floral interior, like mew can see in the sneakers below.  I also love the fact that it is made completely from man-made fabrics, so no critters 'ad to suffer fur the sake of fashion.

Being the generous kitties that ve are, we also got her these to match... The Starry Night [aka Valentine] Sneakers.
 But sadly they didn't fit, due to being too wide, but they vere so cute, and the P.A. was so sad when she 'ad to send them back. The P.A. said they're shoes that make mew smile, as who doesn't want to look at cute kitties on your feet! MOL

Even Fudge was smitten with it, though he did say; that it wasn't as floofy as his tail, but then ve 'aven't seen anything yet that can compare vith his mega floof! MOL

In summary, if mew love cats, vant something that stands out from the crowd and is really unique, then this is the bag fur mew.

Pandora's Fierce Fashion Tip:

Mew'll always feel great if mew really love what mew're wearing!

I do 'ope mew enjoyed our little fashion safari today and I'll be back furry soon vith some more uber cute items fur your pet hooman!

This is your feline fashionista

Lucky Charms, A Leprechaun Hunt, Nip Beer and an Oshkosh on the Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 239 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Supurr Salutations and Greetings Wunderpurr Furriends

As mew can see we've really got our green on today! MOL

Well what's been happening this week, I hear mew ask?  Amber got mugged by some cheeky leprechauns on the way back from her pole dancing club the other evening.  They took all her tips and her rather fetching green costume which Pandora had designed fur her!  Who knew leprechauns could be so hostile, tut tut tut, shame on them! 

Smooch, Parsley and Fudge found some lucky charms down the field, and are now trying to turn them into the newest, bestest crypto-currency to rival BitCoin, good luck with that dudes!

I drank copious amounts of nip beer at our St Paddy's Day Pawty and then followed a rather mystical rainbow to find a great big pile of gold, like who knew that could happen in real life?  And so guess where I'm headed, yep mew guessed it; Dwight Dastardly my local Dealer in Arms and Ammunition, here I come.  

As I saw a rather pawesome Oshkosh truck at his secret yard the other day, and obviously as he's more secret than the Secret Service he wouldn't let me take any footage.  So I had to go to youtube and find mew this; as it's just too epic not to show mew, and wait till mew see how it drives offur terrain, mew'll be wanting one too! MOL 

Isn't it an epically epic BEAST?  

The P.A. says she's having furst goes in it if I do get one, as it's another one of her top 10 fav trucks in the #2 slot, she says she'll neffur have purroblems parking again - by that I think she means she can just leave it anywhere - try towing that Mr Parking-Meter-Man!!! MOL OOPS! 

And finally...

Wishing mew all a totally terrific St Paddy's Day!

If mew missed anything offur the last week, here's the latest posts fur your purrusal:

Pandora will be here bright and breezy in the morning to share with mew the latest thing in feline fashion fur your pet hooman, and then we'll be back with our usual selfie selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then, in the meantime we wish mew all an epic weekend.

Bestest purrs and big hugs
