The Pet Parade Blog Hop #88 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Jan's Funny Farm & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou



Welcome Wunderpurr Furriends

Many greetings pawesome pals, furstly mew may be wundering why there was no Cat of the Week yesterday, well there's a good reason fur this. Today we are furry heavy of heart as on Sunday our dear sisfur Posie, had to go to the vet as she wasn't breathing properly and after subsequent tests we've found out that she has a large tumour in her throat, one near her heart and her lungs have calcification plus an array of other things.  This has been a terrible blow fur all of us, especially since there is no treatment that can save Posie.  The vet have given her anti-inflammatory's and she's seems to be slightly more relaxed and breathing easier fur the time being.

Howeffur, from all indications she's got less than a few weeks to spend here in this realm, and if  in the meantime she takes a sudden turn fur the worst then the right thing will be done immediately.  

Posie is nearly 16, and it's exactly 15 years yesterday since the P.A. brought her and Snowie home from the rescue centre, how time flies when you're having fun!

That's all we can say about things today, so we'll leave it there right now.... as it's too upsetting to contemplate...


On a much, much lighter note, as I feel that we really need one right now,

if mew missed our new saga, The Curse of The Klepto Bunny, mew can catch up on that here:

The Sunday Selfies were purretty normal fur us, mew can see those here:

We'll be back with the new Sunday Selfies Blog Hop - obviously on Sunday and we're hopeful [paws crossed] that we can get Part II of the Klepto Bunny Saga ready fur Tuesday.  So we wish mew all a sterling weekend filled with sunshine, rainbows and sparkles, with lots of cuddles, kisses and snuggles.

Many kitty kisses and headbutts

Tuesday Tails ~ The Curse of The Klepto Bunny

Welcome to

glitter maker

featuring our latest high octane adventure 

Mew may remember, or not, that a few weeks ago Parsley the Panfur had his nearly almost real diamond collar stolen.   At the time we thought there was an invisible collar thief but on closer surveillance this is what we discovered... 


Discovering the Undiscoverables


It was a late Sunday afternoon, the chill March air was like icy fingers brushing my fur.  The sun was low, almost gone and the sky was splashed like an artists canvas with bold flashes of rose pink and soft orange.

I was carefully perched high in the fir tree, which gave me full view of the garden while enabling me to be invisible from the ground.

Sitting patiently I waited and waited and waited as Smoochie flaunted, pranced and paraded around the garden in a glittering ensemble of nearly almost real diamonds of the most magnificent proportions.

He frolicked and smooched around the garden. the huge jewels glittering and twinkling madly in the soft light.

[I think this shot is a little OTT fur my taste, but then we were trying to lure out our nearly almost real diamond collar thief into the open.]

Smoochie lay posing on the millwheel, the nearly almost real diamond collar dazzling anypurrdy that looked upon it. Then completely out of nowhere 


The thief appeared, twitchy little nose, big ears and big teeth and huge fumper feet.

Smooch was completely oblivious to the kleptomaniac bunny who was looming rather ominously behind him.

Laying there on the millwheel, he was humming the tune,'I'm too sexy fur my collar!' 

I shook my head in disbelief, as the klepto bunny made a grab fur the collar.

"Smoooooooch!" I yelled as I jumped from the tree using the springy branches as a springboard to propel me across the garden. "It's behind mew!"

The klepto bunny stopped dead in it's tracks, one greedy, grabbing paw extended towards the nearly almost real diamond collar, but his eyes were transfixed on me in abject horror as I hurtled through the air at light speed on a direct collision course with him.

There was no way the thief was taking that collar.

"You're mine klepto!" I yelled as the space between us diminished second by second and just as I was about to grab the bunny the the scruff of the neck, he vanished and so did the nearly almost real diamond collar from around Smoochie's neck. 

 Smooch suddenly realized what had happened, screamed, "I'm NAKED!"

I shook my head in dismay as I landed softly on the gravel just the other side of the millwheel.

Smoochie hung his head in shame, "Sorry Basil I had no idea the thief was right behind me!"

I was utterly speechless for a few moments, then I said, "Smooch mew'd better go tell the P.A. that another collar is gone and I'll round up effuryone else fur an emergency meeting. We'll be in my secret bunker if the P.A. effur let's mew outside again."

Smoochie nodded solemnly and pootled off indoors.  Finding the P.A. he gently climbed onto her knee and gave her his supurr bestest smoochie face.

Smoochie cleared his throat and said rather tentatively, "I have some bad news!"

The P.A. stared down at his adorable little smoochie chops, an eyebrow raised expectantly.

He continued, "My nearly almost real diamond collar has been stolen, I'm sorry!"

The P.A. pondered this fur a minute, sighed and said, "Well Smoochie, we're really going to have get the fiend that's stealing our stuff, where's Basil?"

"In his secret bunker," Smoochie answered.

"Go tell him to catch the thief by any means necessary!"

Smoochie hurtled outside and through the furry cleverly disguised entrance down to the secret bunker and told us what the P.A. had said.

"Well mew've heard what the P.A. said, by any means necessary, mew know that's a declaration of war!" I spoke firmly and with total resolution. "We will take down the collar thieving klepto and make certain that his grabbing little mittens neffur get to grab any more bling!"

"Are mew saying we're going to use the Transmogrification Sauna again Basil?" Snowie asked in horror, remembering that the Pink Flamingo was turned into a handbag last year.

"Oh no, I've got something much, much nicer and more fitting than that in store!" I answered coldly.

It was then I noticed that Parsley wasn't there.

"Where's Parsley?" I asked, looking around the room.

Effuryone glanced at each other and shrugged, and then it hit me, not literally, but it still hit me.

"Parsley's gone rogue!"

** AND CUT! **

*     *     *

OMC, where's Parsley and what craziness is he up to?

And what could be worse than the Transmogrification Sauna?

Nice bunker, furry cool, can I visit?

I'm sure mew have many more questions that are unanswered, but not to worry just don't furgett to stop by fur next weeks thrilling installment of:

The Curse of The Klepto Bunny

And in the meantime, if mew would like to rediscover the total insanity of The Pink Flamingo Saga, here's the links:

 Part I ~ Part II ~ Part III ~ Part IV  Part V ~ Part VI ~  Part VII ~ Part VIII ~  Part IX ~ Part X

We'll be back soon, until then

Thursday Frolicks ~ Cat of The Week! On time this week! MOL

Welcome to

Thursday Frolicks

Many greetings & sunny salutations

Supurr Furriends


Welcome to our regular slot of  

Pet of The Week

We are all MOL so much, as this week the P.A. has finally found her missing brains and managed to post on the right day!  Thank whoever fur all that is merciful in the world, as we couldn't cope with a brainless P.A. fur too long... no matter how many Dreamies she feeds us!

Anyhoo, let me introduce mew to this weeks

glitter maker

featuring the mega amazing Mario Da Cat aka Mariodacat

from the fabulously wunderpurr blog

Many con'cat'ulations Mario!


Me and Mario are both Cat Scouts, last year when the P.A. had more time I used to go effury week, but [hangs head in shame] I haven't been fur quite a while.  Anyhoo, I can't remember what my point was now, but we're both pawesome Cat Scouts! MOL [that brain loss thing must be catching!]  So before I lose my marbles all-together ~ here's marvellous Mario's interview and I won't mention the Catnip Cookies, all I'll say is - It was a lot of fun!

Welcome my wunderpurr  furriend

Furstly can you tell us a little about yourself? 

After M and D had to help Misty across the Rainbow bridge, they were lonesome for a kitty.  D wanted to go pick one out right away.   The minute they walked through the cat room at the Humane Society in our city, I immediately greeted them by rubbing up against D’s pant legs.   M was looking around to see what kitties were available.   D picked me up, and I started purring right away - doing everything I could to tell him to take me home with him.    M still wanted to look around more, but no one greeted her.   

She told D they should come back again another day just to make sure I was the one.   Geeeeze - what do they want me to do any?  I was doing everything I know how to do to get them to take me home.    The next day they came back, and I greeted D at the door again.   He immediately picked me up and I was rubbing on his face, purring, doing  everything I could think of so he would adopt me/   Finally M said “okay, we’ll take the black and white one.”  WHEW!   i really had to work hard to be invited into this home, where I would be the only child and a spoiled one too!  he he

What is your most favourite thing?

That is a hard question.   I LOVE sitting on D’s or M’s lap.   I like playing with my Neiko Fly, and I love going outside in the summer on my leash and harness.   Now why can’t humans make up their mind on what they call us kitties.   I’m either Big Guy or Little Guy - I can’t be both at the same time.

Do mew have any nicknames?

M calls me Little Guy and Sweetie.  D calls me Big Guy mostly.  They both call me Mario when they want me to come (and I usually honor their request).  

Do mew have a special story to share?

The day I was adopted M took me to the vet to see if I had any problems.  M did notice that I had a croaky meow for sure.  The vet said I was in good health, except I had a couple of toothies that needed to be pulled and my toothies should be cleaned.   She said some kitties just have a different kind of meow.  

My vet wanted M to take me to an Anipal Dentist  as she thought I might be allergic to the tooth decay in my mouth.   The Dentist diagnosed me as having Stomatitis and recommended all my toothies be pulled.   If not, my mouth would continue to have one infection after another.   

My full toothie story is in a tab labeled “My Toothie Story” in my blog at   My own vet uses my blog to refer patients to if they have questions and aren’t feeling to sure about having their kkitty’s toothies pulled.   

What’s the wurst thing mew’ve effur done? i.e: bringing live prey into the house and onto the pillow next to your sleeping hoomans as a speshul surprise, chewing/scratching the furniture/soft furnishings into oblivion, destroying something precious, digging the flowerbeds up, eating the car seat, yakking up on the new silk throw, yakking up everywhere apart from on the wooden floors etc…  [these are all things experienced by my P.A. at some point during her animal guardianship]

Within a few days of coming to live with M and D, I snuck out of the house.   I managed to get the patio door open because the screen was coming loose and I just worked at the hole until it was big enough for me to escape.   M & D were home, but didn’t notice it until I was outside and enjoying smelling and patrolling the yard.    It was at that point that M decided I needed to wear a harness and leash if I wanted to be outside that badly.     I don’t much like to play, so M can leave stuff lay around the house and I pretty much leave it alone.   She says I’m such a good kitty.

Where’s your favourite snooze spot?

I am a lap baby.    If D is sitting in his recliner, chances are I’m sitting on his lap.   Remember, I chose him at the shelter, so he’s my guy.   Sometimes, I sit on M’s lap, but she doesn’t spend much time in her recliner.  He he - I also make a hidey hole on the sofa.  I crawl between the throw M keeps on the sofa and the sofa itself.    There have been a couple of times where the peeps couldn’t even tell I was in the hidey hole.    

Are mew social or antisocial towards your fellow housemates if mew have any?

I don’t have littermates living here, but I’m very social with people   If the doorbell rings, I sometimes help M answer the door cuz whoever is there might want to pet me.  Sometimes I race her and win, of course!

Is there anything else mew’d like to share, that we haven’t asked?

I just want to thank you very much for this opportunity pal.  It’s a real honor to be featured in your bloggy.

As part of the deal, we have to list three things that have inspired this week... only three! MOL

Ok, here we go:

#1  The blue skies of spring inspired us to be hopeful of warmer days and warm sunny spots to bathe in, and let's not furget the catmint that is sprutting as we type! [mmmmmm #delish]

#2 The second thing that inspired us this week, was the wunderpurr generosity of our furriends who visit our blog effury week and leave us such wunderful comments

#3 And finally we were inspired by all the amazingly bright colours which are effurywhere right now, it's magical and we all know that we can neffur have enough magic in our lives ~ Sparkles, rainbows, unicorns etc... MOL [Yes we do live in alternate dimension part of the year!]

So now we've completed that, it is our solemn duty to pass this award on, now we know that some of mew may have already been nominated and we are supposed to list 15 pawesomely inspiring blogs, howeffur we will nominate 10 because if effuryone nominates 15 there'll be no-purrdy left to nominate!
