Pet Peeves with Parsley #9 ~ What's Your Boggle This Week? Give Me A Break!

Many greetings pawesome pals

Parsley here *waves paw* and welcome to 

Pet Peeves With Parsley

Fudge is rather peeved this week, because effury day we've posted he's been in a video and he says, "It's freakin exhausting, give me a break!"

And another thing that's really bugged his boggle immensely, is that he's portrayed as some sort of dimwit, he says, "It's not true, I am rather smart on occasion especially when I wear my tie!"

Yep he said that...

Role Play Gone Bad, Pandora's Classified Halloween Project and Fudge's New Toy on The Pet Parade Blog Hop #218 with Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Barking from the Bayou

Friday greetings wunderpurr pals

Welcome to our weekly round-up on The Pet Parade.  So there I was the other day outside having a bit of me time, enjoying the fresh air when the P.A. said. "Basil I'm off shopping, so you're charge and make sure no-one gets into trouble!"

"Sure thing boss!" I replied and ambled towards the gazebo fur a snooze.

Meanwhile inside, the three heathens we're doing a bit of role-play.  Don't ask me why, it's just something they do... Only this weeks desert island vibe didn't last so long...

"What, only one mouse?" Smooch said. "What kind of devilry is this?"

"Yep, this is really crap!" Parsley concurred. "I'm going into the Virtual Reality Suite in the bunker and getting this role play happening properly!"

"Yeah!" agreed Smooch. "Fudge, are mew coming?"

"But guys, we agreed we were going to try this weeks adventure without all the fancy-schmancy VR effects!" Fudge complained.

"We did," Parsley answered. "And it SUCKED!"

So that basically concluded that.  After Parsley and Smooch had departed the P.A. came home and as Fudge was the only one in the kitchen HE got the new toy, much to his delight! 

Pandora was wurking on something top secret fur the next Crafting with Cats post which is of course Halloween themed, so purrlease look away now unless mew have the clearance level! MOL

But seriously we'll be showing mew how to make all the toys below on the 28th of October, so mew won't want to miss that!

And finally Amber is resting up fur her 15th Birthday Pawty on Tuesday...

Oh and she'll be hosting a birthday give-away too, so mew won't want to miss that!

Time To Give Those Little Grey Cells A workout on Brain Training with Professor Basil P.H.D. #23 & Starring Some Flying Nuts

Welcome to

Puzzling greetings my wunderpurr pals

Welcome to another fabulous Thursday on the blog.

So my supurr smart buddy's, mew know that diet plays a furry impawtante role in maintaining the integrity of your little grey cells.  Mew need a balanced diet and sound nutrition to help stave off stupidity or errant mind-slippage, and just the other day I was talking with young Fudge about the dangers of drugs and how they severely reduce the size of your brain-smartz with prolonged usage.  

Not 10 minutes later did I see the heathen eating some more catnip fresh out of the garden - no wunder his I.Q. is 2 and a little bit. [And I thought Smooch's was bad at 2.91333 recurring]

I just had to save him from that catnip demon and help him retain the few brain cells he still has!

"Eat the nuts," I said, "not the nip!"

Then the nuts went flying. Parsley just looked on in total bemusement and said, "Dude, he's a nip-fiend fur sure, mew need to tell the P.A. to dig that nip up and move it!"  

All I can say is, just another day at BIONICBASIL HQ! MOL

FYI We're still suffering from tech issues regarding making the crosswurds, so at the moment we're just going to share the wurdsearches.  Thank mew fur your understanding.

If mew feel the need to catch up on any of the previous puzzles, here's the links:

Wordy on Wednesday with Biblio-Kitty Amber #47 featuring Cats Can't Shoot: A Pru Marlowe Pet Noir

Welcome To

With me, Amber ~ The Self-Appointed Biblio-Kitty

Supurr salutations pawesome furriends

*waves paw*

Welcome to another wunderpurr Wednesday on the blog.  I'm so excited as my supurr exclusive Crotchety Cougars Red Bonnet arrived on Monday from 15andMeowing - now this is such a great honour as mew can't join The Crotchety Cougars Club until mew are 15, which as of next Tuesday I will be, but appurrently until then I'm not allowed to see, touch, wear or even sniff my new bonnet on the P.A. orders.  

She said and I quote, "Amber it's not your birthday for another six days, you have to wait!"

"PHOOOOEY!"  I harrumphed and stomped off to my library in sheer disgust.

But let me tell me I will get to sneak a peek in that envelope when the Tyrannical Overlord aka the P.A. isn't looking! MOL 

Oh and moving on now, mew remember that we're on the Halloween Trail of Spooky Weirdness throughout this month and today I'm sharing another picture the P.A. took on October's full moon while she was stood in the courtyard.  It's not as creepy as last weeks but still....

OMC what's that blue thing above the clouds?  And it's purretty big... EEEEEEK...  It wasn't in the previous pictures either, as the P.A. always takes 2 or 3 of the same thing - don't ask why, I don't know, she's just a bit nutz! MOL

And no it wasn't a satellite, or a plane, or a helicopter, or a radio-active wurm, or even a big glowy blue-burd!

Idea's anyone?

While mew ponder on the mystery of the blue orb, I think it's time fur this weeks book, so lets hop to it...

This week I'm sharing

Cats Can't Shoot 

A Pru Marlowe Pet Noir 


Here's the book blurb courtesy of Amazon UK:

When Pru Marlowe gets the call that there's been a cat shooting, she's furious. Animal brutality is the one thing that this tough animal psychic won't stand for, and in her role as a behaviorist she's determined to care for the traumatized pet. But when Pru finds out that the cat "did" the shooting - accidentally setting off a rare dueling pistol - she realizes something else is going on. 

Could the white Persian really have killed her owner - or did the whole bloody mess have something to do with that pricey collectible? With the white cat turning a deaf ear to her questions, Pru must tune in to Beauville's other pampered residents - from the dead man's elite social set to their equally spoiled pets - and learn the truth before her ex, a former New York cop, gets too close. 

In a world where value is determined by a price tag, only Pru Marlowe and her trusty tabby Wallis can figure out if this was a case of feline felony - or if some human has set the Persian up to be the ultimate cat's paw.

*    *    *

Cats Can't Shoot is the furst in the Pru Marlowe Pet Mystery Series and it didn't disappoint at all.  Pru can read the minds of animals, which is a gift I wish the P.A. had then she'd know exactly what I want and when I want it without me having to find her and tell her in purrson! MOL

But seriously this book has it all, suspense, drama, really good characters, a nice plot to lead mew along and keep turning those pages or in my case binge listening.

Pru's cat Wallace is a great character and I'm hoping as the series progresses becomes more front and centre, and it's read by one of my favourite narrators too, Tavia Gilbert.

If mew haven't read or listened to this, I really think mew should, mew won't be disappointed.

Audio: 8 hrs 38 mins

I do hope mew enjoy this book if mew decide to give it a try... 

...and if mew've read it already, what did mew think?

*    *    *

Sadly it's time fur me to say BFN or bye-fur-now as mew know the drill, so many books, so little time and don't furget that I'll be back next week with another specially paw-picked book just fur mew.

 Next week I'll be doing Wordy on Wednesday on Tuesday as it's my BIRTHDAY - WOOOO HOOOOO!

Happy reading or listening

Bestest biblio purrs and kitty kisses
