Welcome To
The Pet Parade




Happy Friday wunderpurr furriends

Welcome to another fabulous Pet Parade!

We are absolutely delighted today, let me explain further; we've had no rain, well about 3 or 4 drops in the last 3 weeks which evapourated on contact with the ground, so the other evening I said, "Action is required mew guys and I have a cunning plan!"

Amber stared at me wide eyed. "What's that?"

"We are going to do a rain dance!" I declared with a big grin.

"A what dance?" Humphrey asked.

"A rain dance," I repeated. "We are going to get dressed up and purrform an ancient ritual as purracticed by the American Indians."

"Mew can't be serious?" said Snowie.

"Oh I'm furry serious!" I answered and pointed to several bags of feathers on the table in the craft room.

The next few hours were a frenzy of snipping, clipping and gluing.  Admittedly the craft room looked like the Angry Office Gnome had escaped [FYI he hadn't], mess aside this was our epic result, and we even managed to snag an Arizona backdrop fur even more authenticity and to get a better connection to the spiritual energies.

We take our ritualing furry seriously and even stole the P.A.'s drums, sage sticks and whateffur else we needed from her crystal room - but don't tell her! MOL


Smooch and Snowy were on the drums getting that thrumming rhythm going, Parsley had the white sage burning and Amber was chief wafter of said sage smoke.  Humphrey, well let's just say he got his mittens on the nip pipe and that was that until he keeled offur in the nearest bush! MOL  Posie and I did the whooping and dancing.

All in all it was a most enjoyable affair and lo, let me say that again... and lo it rained!

Coincidence most likely, but we like to think we had a little paw in said precipitation! MOL



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



We'll be back tomorrow with Part II of Catnip Capers on The Caturday ComicStrip and again with our usual Selfie Selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then.

Wishing mew all a purrfect weekend

Bestest purrs & hugs

Thankful on Thursday with Smoochie and Blog Hopping with Pepsi




Greetings pawesome pals

Smoochie is here today being supurr thankful fur having fur-sibs to help him clean up his furry untidy office space and eradicate his gnome purroblem! 

"Mew know what?" I said the other day.

"What?" asked Smoochie.

"I have no idea how mew manage to get your desk into such a mess," I replied.

Smooch began to chuckle and gave me a little one-shoulder shrug. "I'm sure I don't know how it happens either," he smirked. "But we do have office gnomes that come in at night to wreck the place!"

"Hmmmmm..." I said looking around the room at all the other neat and tidy desks. "It's strange how yours is the only desk they mess with!"

"Office gnomes are funny like that," he began, trying to hold back the laughter. "They only pick on one desk at a time!"

"I see."

"It's true, I have proof!" he said most earnestly.

"Show me," I insisted.

After rummaging through his desk drawer, Smooch whipped out this picture.



And indeed there was an office gnome and an angry one at that!

"Oh dear," was all I managed to say.

"Mew see, it's not me!" Smoochie laughed.

"Appurrently not," I conceded. "So how are we going to deal with this angry phenom-nom-nom?"

"I've set traps and all sorts Basil," Smooch replied. "But so far I've only managed to catch a picture."

"Leave it with me," I said, suddenly remembering an article in the National Geo. "I've got a plan."

The furry next morning...




"Basil, how did mew catch him?" Smooch asked in surprise.

"Peanut butter sandwiches, wurks effury time!" I smiled as the angry Gnome cursed wildly in his little cage.

"What's going to happen to him now?" Smooch's face filled with concern.

"Don't mew wurry, I'm packing him off  to the Gnome Rehabilitation Centre in the Outer Hebrides, he'll be fine in a decade or so!" I answered. "And now it's time to clean up your desk, and mew have help too."

"Oh really?" Smoochie beamed.

"Really!" I smiled, as Amber and Parsley entered the room.



*   *   *

We would like to know if any of mew have suffered this office Gnome phenom-nom-nom, aka Unexplained Messy Desk Syndrome - U.M.D.S. - as I'm sure there are more of these gnomes about than we truly know?

We are thinking of setting up Gnome-Watch, so if mew come across any do let us know!

Bestest purrs

Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #8 featuring Probable Paws

Welcome to 


The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty


Pawesome greetings fellow bibliocats

Hi y'all, Amber here *waves paw most daintily*

Sorry I was trying my southern accent! MOL [I've been reading Gone with the Wind and got a little carried away - but I think I'd make a lovely southern-belle].

Well here we are again on another beautiful Wednesday, the sun is shining, the clouds are supurr fluffy and there's even a lovely breeze too, which is rather nice when the library door is open into the courtyard.

I nearly wasn't here again today and it was touch and go fur Tuesday Tails too.  Let me explain, the P.A. can be a little accident prone from time to time [putting it mildly] she has the incredible ability to trip up on a flat surface, walk into things, fall up stairs and a whole host of other stuff, seriously she can be a menace to herself, [we're actually looking fur a bubble-wrap-cocoon fur her].  

This is the sequence of events;  Friday evening she's putting a metal platform ladder away and it fell on her right arm arm and left ankle resulting in a lump & bruise in both places, Saturday she was attacked by roses, which looked liked we'd attacked her left arm and on Sunday, when planting a new crop of runner beans, she couldn't get the last few out of the glass they'd been soaking in.  So she took her gloves off and poked the beans with a little stick, that didn't wurk, then she turned the glass upside and tapped it lightly [yeah right!!!] on the wooden sleeper.  Well mew know what I'm going to say next. It broke. Just as she was about to pick up the shattered pieces with bare hands, her inner voice told her to put on her thick gardening gloves.

She did, but unfortunately, and I mean so unlucky, a shard of glass had fallen into her right glove.  So as she began to pull the glove on, well mew can imagine.  The good news is it wasn't as bad as it could have been, the bad news is she cut two knuckles and punctured one of the tiny veins in the top of her finger, so hasn't been able to bend it for a couple of days, but it seems ok now.  

We were watching her type one handed all Monday evening getting Fast, Furry & Dangerous done and to be honest we actually felt sorry fur her fur like five minutes until we discovered a new jar of Kong uber strong catnip! MOL MOL

FYI she survived and is on the mend, [we do care really] but now it's time fur me to share this weeks literary offuring with mew, aftur all that's why we're here.





This week on Book Reviews with Amber, I'm sharing

Mystic Notch Cozy Mystery Series Book 5

by



Mew may remember that I reviewed Ghostly Paws on my furst effur Biblio Wednesday, well this one is number 5 of the Cozy Notch Series Admittedly I haven't reviewed books 2-4 but as I'm here with #5 mew know it must be a most excellent series. 

I have to say that this series gets better and better and in each book Pandora the cat reveals a little more about the true purpose of the Mystic Notch Cats and their valiant efforts to thwart the seeping evil that keeps threatening their little town.  

In this novel it is revealed that Willa's on-off cop boyfriend, Striker, also has the ability to see ghosts, but not on the same plane as Willa's ghostly apparitions appear which makes fur quite a comical read, especially when Pandora can see ghosts on all planes, howeffur neither Willa or Striker are willing to admit their gifts to each other... yet!

This story revolves around Betty's Recipe Book, which is really a book of magic.  Both Willa and Striker are searching fur it independently of each other, meanwhile there are several rather unpleasant peeps aftur it too, who can be trusted and who are the evil ones?

Mew'll have to read it to find out! MOL

I can safely say this is my newest favourite cats series and can't wait fur the next one.


Hardback copy: 306 pages long

  Audio Edition: 6 hours 9 minutes
