The Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 185 ~ Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou




Pawesome Friday Greetings Furriends

I'm feeling much better this week and as mew can see we've decided that Spring has Sprung as we're so sick of looking at the winter banner now! MOL

Mew may remember on Wednesday, Amber said I had a surprise fur mew. Well sadly the surprise isn't exactly fantastic, the P.A. is totally gutted and so disappointed.  Let me tell mew the story...

Last June me and The Hoard bought the P.A. a ticket to Blogpaws in Myrtle Beach, as fur the previous 3 years there had been several incidents that prevented her from going.  So we were determined that she had no excuse fur 2017.  That said obviously me and The Hoard can't got in purrson as we're from the UK, so I said to the P.A. get a cuddle clone of me made to take with mew.

So in January we went to the Cuddle Clones website and added a gazillion pictures of me and gave instructions fur my doppelganger to be made.  Bearing in mind that it cost $460.00 US dollars to have it made, shipped and then the duty/VAT coming into the UK. [And it was a gift fur the P.A. from her mum].

Yesterday the box arrived and the P.A. was so furry excited, as were we, that was until she opened the box. Then this happened:


WHO IS THAT?


The P.A. wept!  I wept!  The Hoard wept! 

Like what the flip happened?  They had about 15 magnificent photo's of yours truly - front, both sides, rear, tail, close ups of my face etc and this is what they produce?

Jeez dudes at the Cuddle Clone place, are mew blind?

The P.A. is emailing them to see what they have to say about it, because as far as I'm concerned it's just so not good enough fur the money paid.

What do mew guys think? 

And what the flip is the P.A. going to do now, as they take up to 3 months to make!



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


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 a truly terrific weekend!

Happy Hopping

Sweetest purrs & nose bumps

  1. Aww geez... I can see why your human isn't thrilled with it, especially for the money paid! I think it would be kind of cute... if it weren't supposed to be you!

    1. Hey Summer, the P.A. is gutted, especially after seeing what pawesome clones they made of other dogs and cats! Oh it is cute but it's supposed to look like me :( XOX

  2. Awww Murli and I LUVZ plush-animal cats! (She likes to cuddle with them, just like me lol) We have lots of them. I think it's totally adorable in itself, it's just not looking much like you. (I can't help but find all kitty plushies totally adorable & always have a hard time not to bring them home when I see them somewhere lol).

    I'm sorry it's not like you wanted. Hope you can get it sorted out. Hugs & have a lovely Friday despite the disappointment!��

  3. It cost how much? Excuse the background noise, that's Jan choking. We're sorry but we have to agree with you about it not looking like you. A very cute cuddle but not you.

    Your PA is going to BlogPaws? How exciting!

    1. Hiya Funny Farmers, yep the PA choked on the price too until her mum offered to buy it - then it was all sunshine and rainbows! MOL Yep we The Hoard are officially sending the PA to Blogpaws, we just hope she doesn't get lost on the way! MOL XOX

  4. While adorable, you should definitely get what you paid for, especially at that price. Yep, some adjustment needs to be made there, all righty!

  5. OMC Basil, dat's just pawful. It's cute and all, but it fur sure ain't anythin' like you. Altho' we have to be honest, we've seen a couple of those things and we didn't think they looked much like their dopplegangers either. Maybe they had a sale on gray furs and thought you wouldn't notice. We think da PA should insist on a new one as a rush order. We mean, make 'em drop everythin' and concentrate on just makin' you. Surely ifin they did dat, it wouldn't take no 3 months. Who knows, there may be some gray kitty out there wonderin' why he's brown. MOL Gotta laff right? And by da way, we's got on our bobble hat today. We're so glad you're feelin' better. Sendin' hugs and purrayers fur all.

    Luv ya'

  7. That just isn't right and they need to redo yours first and get it to you on time. Hey, maybe my Dad will meet the PA at Blogpaws. Thanks for joining the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!

  8. We're glad you're feeling better, Basil! We love the spring graphic for the parade. That representation of you is disappointing. If you tell them your Mum is taking it to BlogPaws, they might be motivated to rush things a bit on a better model (great publicity for them at the conference!!!). I haven't decided if I'm going to the conference yet, but if I do, your Mum will be on the top of my list of people to spend time with along with Erin's Peep!

    1. Hi Momma Kat & Bear, isn't the Spring Banner cute, I stood and watched while the P.A. made it! MOL Hopefully Cuddle Clones now they've had the email will rectify the purroblem and I did mention that it was going to Blogpaws, so we'll see what happened! And be great if you're going to BP to, the PA IS SO LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING EFFURYPURDY! XOX

  9. Clearly Basil, there is only one you. Perhaps you're simply too gorgeous for those clonin' peeps to capture your gorgeousness? But for whatever reason, for that price, they need to redo your clone and redo it like ASAP. They really, really do. PURRS.

    1. Hey Seville, maybe mew're right and the wurld just isn't big enough fur the real Basil & a doppelganger! Yep, we are waiting to hear what they have to say about it! XOX

  10. Good grief! Doesn't look a cotton-pickin' thing like you Basil! Those things are HORRIBLY EXPENSIVE so they better do something about it. Wonder if they could put a BIG RUSH on a replacement (free of course!). If you can't get the clone in time - do we we do at Cat Scouts - have your P.A. make a "Flat Basil" (cardboard cutout of YOU) to take. It's better than nothing - that's how Cat Scouts visit each other and on posterboard it's easy to do. Keep us posted - hopefully you'll get another clone in time!

    Love, Angel Sam and Teddy

    1. Hi Angel Sammy and Teddy, it doesn't does it :( great idea about the flat cats, so all is not yet lost! Sorry I haven't been to Cat Scouts lately, I just haven't got the time :( XOX

  11. Oh my gosh! That's a lot of money for something that looks nothing like you!! I hope the customer service at Cuddle Clones knows their job and can help the PA.

    That's super sad and doesn't speak well for their work.

  12. Oh no! As cute as it is, that cat doesn't look like you, Basil. We hope they can make this right. The mom was going to get one of us as a Cuddle Clone, but she can't decide which one of us it should be.

    1. Hey Island Cats, imagine our horror when we looked inside the box!!!! Don't do anything until I've sorted this purroblem out and plus I think we may have found someone better to clone us! XOX

  13. I would cry too, it doesn't look like you at all. I hope she can get another one and that it looks like you. XO

  14. Oh no, it's obviously not you ! At that price, you can expect far better ! We hope it was only a mistake from Cuddle Clones, and that you'll get your Plush Basil very soon. Purrs

  15. Basil, something has gone seriously wrong here. It does not look like you and I do know that I have seen Cuddle Clones that DO look very like their owners.

    One or two bloggers have them on their blogs so check them and see. I will be frank, cry I would scream the place down - but the acid test is how they respond to your contacting them. If they move to make it right then you can be reassured that they are doing a good job and they care.

    I hope to heaven they do as this is an unconscionable about of money to layout for a bitterly disappointing experience.

  16. Basil.

    We had a thought.

    Do you think you accidentally got someone else's Cuddle Clone?

    1. No because it has my name on the label! :(

      Delete
  17. I agree with Dash. Maybe there was confusion in the packing department and they sent your P.A. a kitty that was sorta like Basil. Is it pawsible that there is a Basil clone out there but with different coloring? BTW...me and my mom will also be at Blogpaws. Purrrs!

    1. Hey Herms dude, oh the P.A. is so looking forward to meeting mew all at BP, she says it's going to be the best fun effur! No this one has the name Basil on the label, so its definitely supposed to be me :( :( XOX

  18. Me and my dad just looked at the Cuddle Clones site and he pointed out how the examples of their work aren't purrfect either. Look at the dog on the left. Too much white under the chin. Look at the calico kitty. Chest markings aren't right. Mom hired Felt2Rescue to make a clone of me, and she had to wait ten months. Maybe Cuddle Clones is rushing too fast to get their clones out the door. Too bad. I'd ask for my money back.

  21. That's heartbreaking, Basil and Co. We mean, that Cuddle Clone is cute and all, but it doesn't look like mew, Basil. :(

    1. Hey Chatty Cats, the situation with cuddle clones is declining rapidly! XOX

  24. Basil...that is a travesty. The only thing they seem to have gotten right is the shape of your nose. We are pretty certain that they have a money-back guarantee. We think the P.A. should send it back. She can make a flat Basil to bring to BP. That's what our Mom has done in the past. Our mom is excited that she will get to meet yours at BP!

  25. Yikes...we looked at said stuffie kitty and thought wow, why did your Mum need a stuffie when she has so many real kitties...and...and then we read it was *supposed* to be YOU! OMC! Um, nope not you at all. We think you need a refund, and since you already paid all the shipping and VAT you oughtta be able to keep the mistake cat...some company did that for petcretary once when they sent her the wrong thing, they fixed the trouble and let her keep the wrong item too,MOL!

    Hey! If you get a purr-purr Doppleganger, then you can have a giveaway for this not you one:)
