Thoughtless on Thursday with Basil & Smoochie

being uber, mega thoughtless with

Poor Parsley accidentally took a little dip in the pond, he was totally fine, just his ego slightly dented.  I did warn him that the rockery stones were a tad wobbly but he was insistent he wanted to get closer to the frog.... he won't be doing that again in a hurry.

Smooch had a good chuckle as did I, sadly the P.A. wasn't quick enough to snap any pictures as he bolted like a streak of lightning to the back of the garden after his most unceremonious scramble from the pond of doom and sulked behind a bush fur the next hour.  Not even the shake of the Dreamie bag and purromise of treats would lure him from his stupor.

On that note we'll get hopping and hopefully stay dry! 

Wishing mew all a day of delights

Wordless on Wednesday with Humphrey

glitter maker

Greetings and many salutations wunderpurr furriends

We hope mew all had a supurr weekend

So sorry we didn't get to post yesterday fur the Pirate Q&A, we got a little distracted in the garden instead, but not to worry, we'll catch up with part 5 fur next week.

As mew can see we've been busy offur the weekend, Humphrey was the Garden Overlord, whoops sorry Overseer, and as he's the eldest and grumpiest cat in Sleepy Hollow at the moment he took prime position in the sunshine on the millwheel.  

He was most disgruntled to find out that the catmint is only just sprutting and is in no way ready fur a mass sniffing, chomping, rolling, biting, ripping and pulling session.  Mew can imagine his horror when he realised this - all I can say to that is MOL MOL MOL oh and MOL MOL MOL!!!!

We and what I mean by we is, the P.A. got the two raised beds planted with Gladi's, Dahlia's, Anemones, Gypsophila, Alium, and others that I just can't remember right now... well let's just say she planted blue ones, purple ones, yellow ones, white ones, red ones, pink ones, orange ones, etc, in fact I think it's easier to say the raised beds will be like a flowery rainbow if all goes to plan.

We all took turns to help of course.   Smooch rolled on the soil as she was trying to dig the holes, filling them in as fast as they were dug, Parsley tried to reposition the bulbs, so he says to a more upright and beneficial position - in reality it was more like fish them out and flick them somewhere else.  I sat and meowed fur food the entire time.  Amber played the chase the bulb packet around the courtyard and Snowie, well let's just say Snowie was assisting with the ankle weaving/tripping up thing and doing a most marvellous job of it.

Then it began to rain halfway through, so we all dutifully abandoned the P.A. and went indoors and watched from the french doors in the kitchen as it bucketed down and she got soaked. [MOL MOL don't tell her we laughed! MOL] 

All in all we did a fab job and are most proud of our uber, mega gardening skillz, the P.A. would be completely and utterly lost without our help and neffer get anything down unless we were supurrvising. 

This got me to wundering if all hoomans were the same, and needed constant surrpivision fur effury task they do....??? so we'll finish with a quick question...

Do mew supurrvise your hoomans with their daily activites? 

See mew on the morrow when we'll be here with much thoughtless abandon

The Pet Parade Blog Hop No: 137 ~ Hosted by Rascal & Rocco Co-Hosted by Basil & Love is Being Owned By A Husky & Barking from the Bayou

Welcome to a complete egg-stravaganza on the blog today!

We hope that mew've all had a supurr week and that spring has sprung a little more in your corner of the wurld.

The bulbs from last week haven't been planted yet, just in case mew are wundering, as the old fence is being replaced and we didn't want them being trampled on.  We will let mew know when the deed is done and all bulbs are happily bathing in soil. 

I also asked the P.A. if we were getting any catnip filled Easter eggs this year and having a hunt fur them in the garden, she said... "I'll let you know."

Paws crossed fur this event to occur as it's great fun and I've got my bunny ears on especially.  Amber is rubbish as she really doesn't like being outside too much, especially if the P.A. isn't there [we think she's a little agoraphobic]  Smoochie is a great hunter as is Parsley so I think I'll have my wurk cut out with those 2, and the seniors aka Humphrey and Snowie won't be too bothered and will expect the eggs to be delivered direct to their baskets! MOL MOL

Do mew get special treats at Easter?

In other news, as it's Easter we've decided to make my book, Basil the Bionic Cat FREE just because we can.  So if mew'd like to get your uber cute, furry, little mittens on a copy of my supurr adventure, be our guest as we just love to share the love!

Thoughtless on Thursday With Smoochie

Many greetings wunderpurr furriends

Welcome to another completely Thoughtless Thursday with Senor Le Smooch who just happens to be sharing his uber white, fluffy cuteness with thoughtless abandon today.

Mew know I say that I sometimes wunder about his mental stability, [which is highly debatable even on a good day] but aside from that small issue of him not being a full picnic, he's the total bestest effur, and to say he only has three legs he can sure keep up with the rest of us.  Even putting us to shame at times, we all love our little bebe Smoochums.

And before I furget, the P.A. asked me to post a little update on the Smoochinating purroblem from a few weeks ago.

The laptop did resurrect enough fur the P.A. to back effurything up and then it RIP'd permanently. 

So effurything that took his fancy has been removed from the house and is still stashed.

The extra feeding stations were placed on pee points - there has been no more incidents at these locations.

The Feliway plug-in's are still in action - the P.A. says it's a shame they don't wurk on hoomans! MOL

The P.A. installed a WiFi camera to watch us, and she caught footage of the little heathen [I use this term in an endearing way FYI] piddling on the floor in front of the kitchen sink.

He's moved away from peeing on softness to peeing on the hard floor, but it was marking up tail in the air, not having a pee because he needed one.  So now there's a litter tray next to the sink on the floor obviously, and since its arrival no more pee on the floor.  

So we'll see how that goes and update mew in a few weeks, by which time the extra tray will hopefully not be needed in that purrticular local any more.

Wishing mew all a day of delights

Bestest purrs

Wordless on Wednesday with Miss Snowie

with supurr snoozy 

glitter maker

I don't know if it's the same in your home, but effurypurrdy here swaps beds like effury 5 minutes. 

 In fact it's just like mewsical beds!!! MOL

The P.A. says this would be the mewsic if we had any...

[Fur those of mew who have neffur heard of  Benny Hill;  it was a furry funny comedy in the UK which ran from the mid 1950's to the late 1980's]

There are a couple of  'prime-real-estate' spots which I try to command at all times, but sometimes with so many of us I do miss out on 'LE SPOT!' 

So who's the main bed hopper in your house?

Tuesday Tails ~ Pirate Q&A ~The Secrets of The Voyages of Captain Basil Revealed ~ Part IV

Welcome to

 Pirate Q&A 

The Secrets of The Voyages of Captain Basil Revealed

So me seafaring pirating fiends, are ye ready to discover all the secrets, and get thee answers to thee questions that have been keeping ye awake night aftur night??


If ye missed the previous Q&A just be clicking the links below:

Now that we be 'aving that out of thee way, let's be getting on with divulging the answers from  Part IV 

Here's the questions:

Did Smoochie need counselling after nearly being chump fur sharks?

No, in fact he said that it was the most exciting, pant-wetting exciting thing effur [thank goodness he was in the ocean and no-one noticed!] howeffur he says next time he swims with sharks he wants to be inside a cage. Mew know sometimes I really wunder about him and his marbles, well where he left some of them.... heathen child! MOL

Did mew get to try any of the sharks fin soup?

No we didn't, as we thought it would be more prudent to stay away from the Tor-Tye just in case they fancied something a bit sweeter fur dessert!

What's the boggle with Horice and that weird jewel on his forehead?

The jewel is a tricky one to answer, as sometimes it's visible and others it's not.  At furst I thought it was linked to the temple somehow, but since he's been back in Sleepy Hollow in the bunker, we've seen it appear more than a few times.  It's one of those things that's going to take some time to explore and get to the bottom of, howeffur mew can bet your next pack of Dreamies that our furry able science team are all offur it.

Just how was Horice able to call his dolphin pals?

Horice is rather unusual, as mew have probably guessed, and years spent on that 
weirdo island did something to his brain, making him able to communicate telepathically, obviously the science team are also furry interested in that too - and before mew think that Horice is just a lab-rat, don't -  as he's not.  

We just need to make sure he won't suffer any ill-effects after leaving the island, as he was there like fureffur and has neffur lived in a normal place before [not that we can really say that Sleepy Hollow is normal - it just doesn't have all that electro-magnetic vibe happening]. 
So fur his health, we need to make sure he can live without it, otherwise I'm going to have to mackle up some purrsonal electro magnetic field generator just fur him.  But at the moment he seems just peachy as he pootles about on level 8.

Parsley was most courageous in his attempts to beat the sharks away and save Smooch, just where does he get his fearless from?

Parsley is quite a bold young chap, and when I asked him about fighting the sharks, he said most stalwartly,  "Basil, I was only doing what mew would have done!"

What can mew say to that? [I felt so proud, it actually choked me up fur a moment!]

*     *     *

And some from our pawesome buddies - we know we answered these at the time, but we didn't have all the facts, now we have more....

The Tabbies of Trout Towne asked us; Was one oh de dolphinz named flipper? 

The answer to this is still no, he was called Flapper, but we think he may have been an ancestor of Flipper.

 Why did de tor-tye pick blue & gold inn sted of camo flague?  

This is quite amusing as I asked Horice the furry same thing.  Appurrently the tor-tye sleep underneath a tree where some squawking parakeets roost.  The berries on this tree are blue and they fall on the tor-tye, hence the blue splats, and the yellow and white is actually burd poop! MOL [Sh***y pygmy tor-tye] 

Additional info:  The Tor-Tye are also actually colour blind, so they think they are totally camouflaged, almost predator-esque when in reality they are more obvious than streaker in a convent.

Did ya find smooches bandana? 

Yes, it was washed ashore, and he is furry happy about that.  It was a little bit crunchy/crispy salty stiff, but after a little bit of bashing on a rock, it seemed to soften it up.

Additional info: The bandana didn't make it, after our return Smooch gave it to the P.A. to wash as it smelled like seaweed, Kraken guts and gun powder.  Upon placing it in a bowl of cold water to soak with a pre-wash solution it promptly fizzed and then dissolved.   We are unsure as to why this happened and further tests on the liquid are being carried out by the science department. 

 Just what IZ goin on bak at de ship?

A flipping great big Kraken was trying to squeeze of the guts out of The Crimson Revenge.  In fact we found out after our returnto Sleepy Hollow, that purrticular species of Kraken aka Krakai-gar-ganutaun-squidus-leviathan became extinct in 1683 strange timing all things considered. Who knew?  

 Will ya bring horice with ya when ya come bak two de few chure? 

Not sure yet, but we'll ask him when we're closer to figuring a way back.

Additional info:  Yes Horice is safely tucked away back in the future and away from eveel Amsted.

 N we hope ta cod shark doez KNOT taste like...chckn

Shark does not taste like chicken! MOL 

Kitties Blue wanted to know; 

If we could purrhaps go to eBay or Craig's List for a used time machine that we could use to get home again?  

If there was eBay in 1683 & a bit we'd be there in flash!  Do mew think they'd take Apple pay? MOL

Does Horice's crystal have some additional powers?  

This is still an unknown at this point but we're sure that it does a lot more than just look purretty, shiny and supurr glowy! 

Additional info: The crystal has many, many powers and the science team are just beginning to discover some of them.  Fur starters; there's the telepathy thing, he can also turn objects invisible, and himself too.  He's a bit of practical joker and has on numerous occasions popped up when we've least expected it!  Last time it was when Snowie was carrying some lab equipment, it scared the bejeezus out  of her and needless to say the lab equipment ended up as toast - not literal toast, or burnt toast -  just broken fur want of a better wurd! 

He can also levitate, and let me tell mew, that is something to behold, as time goes on I'm sure we'll discover many other fantastical things. 

Dezi wanted to know: 

How awe yous gunna get back to da here and now?

Luckily Horice helped up with that, and the use of a small orb propelled us post haste back to the future.

So until next weeks Pirate Q&A, shiver me timbers, get thee a bottle o'nip rum and a hammock, and we'll be seeing mew on the morrow!

   Aharrrrrrrrrrrrrr me hearties and sail the highs sea's safely, until next time

Hearty purrs and salty sea-spray head rubs
