Pawesome Friday greeting wunderpurr furriends

Welcome to our weekly round-up on The Pet Parade and furstly we had a bit of technical issue with Tuesdays scheduled posts not getting published on time, luckily we rectified that issue on Wednesday, but needless to say: 

ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH 



fur the inconvenience! MOL

Anyhoo, all is well in blog-land now.  We're are trying to catch up and not doing a furry good job right now, but we are endeavouring to do our best, so purrlease bear with us while we continue to wurk diligently to get to all your blogs.

In other news, the P.A. got some catnip seeds a couple of months ago and as we've got supurr green paws here we have a furry nice catnip crop growing.


We were quite surprised at the difference between catnip and catmint, the catnip leaves are huge, which means all the more fur me! MOL

So anyhoo, we grew about 25 plants in total, and we did replace two of the catmint plants in the mill-wheels as those plants we're looking really tired and needed a break from us, so they've gone on an extended rejuvenation programme in another part of the garden.

At the weekend I thought I'd better see how the new catnip plants were doing in situ... and offur them some tender loving care... NOT!


Then Fudge decided he needed some action...


Then I decided I didn't want to share...


Yes, it's all mine, and none fur any heathens!

And before it ends up getting out of paw, I think it's time we moved on....



And if mew missed anything during the last week, here's the latest links fur your purrusal:



and if mew're still bored get our free colouring books below:



We'll be back our usual Selfie Selection on Sunday, so hope mew can join us then.

In the meantime we wish mew all an epically epic weekend and don't furget to add your links to the Pet Parade hop below!

Happy hopping

    1. Hey Chatty Cats, seriously mew don't need green paws or thumbs to grow catnip, just get some seeds, compost, and some small pots, add seeds + compost to pots and water regularly, just make sure they are kept in a warm place like a sunny windowsill until they germinate... mew'll have a crop in no time! XOX

  8. Wonder if catmint will draw cats into our backyard the way I fear catnip will? Hmmm...

    1. Hiya Eastside cats, maybe, but if mew keep it closer to the house then if any introoders decide to usurp your crop they might be put off due to it being in close proximity to the house! XOX

  13. We are envious of your catnip and you grew it from seeds. You do have green paws indeed. Mommy buys the plants and she still manages to kill them no way would she be able to grow it from seeds. Yours looks GREAT.
