The Saturday Special featuring Freakmeowt Catnip Toys

Welcome to another edition of

http://picasion.com/gl/6nJe/


Salutations and greetings on this fine Caturday!

Today we have another, yes another sponsored post to share with mew from the pawesomely fab peeps at:




A couple of weeks ago we were asked if we'd like to purrtake in the purrleasure of handmade catnip toys stuffed to the gills with premium strength Canadian catnip, yes mew heard us right, the primo Canadian stuff!

Well of course we said yes without a seconds hesitation, wouldn't mew? MOL

So in two shakes of a lambs tail, well not quite but it was supurr quick, we were delivered a fabulous pink shiny envelope [the P.A. lurves pink].  Anyhoo I digress, the shiny pink envelope was conveyed into the kitchen and placed on the island [not an island island, a kitchen island - our house isn't big enough fur one of those!]  



I promptly launched upwards, landing on said island with a gentle thwump and before the P.A. could do a thing I was gripped in the throws of a heady aroma that I'd neffur experienced before, let's just say it brought the beast out in me!  And while the said purrfume extraordinaire had me in its clutches this happened - OOPS

Luckily while I was savaging the freak me owt [purrdon the pun] of the heavenly-aroma-infused-wrapping the P.A. managed to take a couple of lovely shots of the uber cute contents before they too succumbed to 'playtime!'




 With the toys on the floor, all senses activated and noses on red alert, the P.A. had to call time-out of the video segment after 11 seconds as it looked liked things were going to get-out-of-paw rather rapidly! MOL



Smoochie did manage to get the green fishy on one side, his face says it all.



Aftur Smoochie zonked out the P.A. took the toys into the lounge fur Amber, who relished effury moment until she realized there was no more primo Canadian!


Amber who is a little camera shy actually let the P.A. film her getting her FREAK ME OWT ON! MOL



All I can say is, the toys were fabulous, we loved them, and the Canadian primo nip is now on our purrsonal to grow list in the bunker.

Mew can find out more about Freak MEOWt here:




And the toys mew saw today are part of an effur growing collection, we are purrticularly liking the Sushi boxes with fortune cookies... mmmmmmm.... which mew can view at their interwebs shop, bet mew can't guess what we're ordering when the P.A.'s not looking?! MOL




We would like to say a special thanks to the pawesome peeps at Freak MEOWt fur giving us this oppurtunity to play wildly with their most excellent toys and experience primo Canadian nip at its finest ~ THANK MEW FURRY MUCH!

 Many thanks fur joining us today and don't furget to stop by tomorrow fur our usual Sunday Selfies post.

Happy Caturday

The Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 146 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou

WELCOME TO

THE PET PARADE




Friday greeting wunderpurr pals

After the decorating upheaval of last week, it's been rather nice to have a little peace this week.  Admittedly it's been cold the last few days but we did get an oppurtunity fur a bit of 'mill-wheel mayhem!'

Apart from Angel Posie who used to much preferred her soft pudding to rolling on a chiseled lump of stone fur a catnip high.  She figured that if she was meant to have catnip it would appear in her bed, and looking at Humphrey, I think the new spring growth may have been a little too much fur him, he looks like a space-cadet about to enter the green-zone fur sure... MOL

Fur those of mew who don't know about the mill-wheels, we have a few in the garden but the four that are on the edge of the lawn flower border have been planted with catmint fur many years now, as the P.A. got a bit ticked off with us when we repeatedly decimated the pot grown plants and the pots got damaged due to uncontrolled heathen behaviour.  So she decided that planting them in the centre of the mill-wheels gave us the purrfect platform to roll, frolic and chew the blazes out of the catmint.

As mew can see I was flat out and rather floofy [floo-fee] in my pic, but I did enjoy my snooze and thank goodness that there's more than one mill-wheel because I certainly wasn't sharing mine with the rest of the heathen hoard!

In other news quite a few of the bulbs that were planted way back when have finally popped up, so we'll let mew know how they progress and hopefully have some flower-tastic pictures to share.



If mew missed anything this week, here's the latest links fur your purrusal:

Bestest purrs & hugs

Wordy on Wednesday with Humphrey

Wednesday greetings supurr furriends

Today, as mew may have already surmised Humphrey is here sharing this weeks top book pick.

We know many of mew are literary kitties and love a good yarn, purrdon the pun, and yes string, yarn, twine, cord and the like are all most marvellous time wasters but if mew have free time to spare Humphrey thinks mew may enjoy this novel.

Now as the P.A. has to go to work daily to meet our demanding demands, then be at our beck and call fur the remaining hours in the day, plus all the other jobs that need doing, she doesn't have time to sit and read, so she listens [as do we] to audio books while she toils - she calls it multi-tasking - she's listened to audio books since being a small fry and finds it most enjoyable.

Offur the years she's gone from spoken wurd cassettes, to CD's and finally in 2009 to the Audible App, which she says is a truly terrific invention.  She also has a Kindle with a gazillion books on waiting to be read but unless we develop some cloning tech in the secret bunker they aren't going to be read anytime soon! MOL

So anyhoo, let's get back to Humphrey top book pick.


[Image Amazon]


It features a supurr smart Maine coon kitty called Diesel who rather casually assists his hooman, Charlie Harris in the solving of  murders.

While we won't ruin anything by 'spoilerizing' this novel fur mew, we can say it was fun to listen too, with great narration and a good set of plot twists to keep mew listening and entertained.  It's classed as a Cozy Mystery so it's basically a PG rating, thus if mew're looking fur a light read this is absolutely purrfect. 

The audio version is 8 hours 46 mins long, just in case mew're were wundering how many treat breaks and naps mew can fit in between chapters! MOL

And if mew've already read it or listened to it, what did mew think?


Just so mew don't get lost with Humphrey's ratings, he made a rather nifty little diagram which he calls: 

The Humphrey Scale



Humphrey's Rating on Murder Past Due:


Plot Twists

Characters


Story Development


Offurall Enjoyment

The paw has spoken! MOL


What more do mew need than that, so we'll bid mew good morrow and wish mew happy reading or listening, or in fact napping with treats on the side with a splash of nip tea!

Purrs
