Basil’s Bedtime Story Competition!

Now you know whee recently had a new arrival, Baby Basil. Like any bubby Basil loves to hear a good story. So whee are launching our latest competition especially for him. Basil Bedtime Story!

Based on the fictional land of Cavyaira featured in Mummy’s story for us.
Whee would like hoomans, piggies and other furries to write a short story about their adventure in Cavyaira (or an ajoining land for doggies and kitties Pawsford!) Whether it’s a night out at The Pig Inn or a mysterious adventure in the mountains whee need bedtime stories for Basil. Adventure, romance, or spooky! Whee aren’t fussy!

The story can be no more than 1000 words and you must include a photo of the pet this adventure is based on.

The winner will have their story featured on the blog as well as illustrations created by our little hooman. If you would like to see what these pigtures/drawings will look like here is the cast of Captured In Cavyaira: (click to make it bigger)

Please send your stories to with the subject line ‘Basil’s Bedtime Story’ and your pet photo attached as a jpeg.

Closing date for entries is Sunday 16th September with an annoucement of the winner to come the following wheek.

Can’t wait to see how creative you all are! 😉

Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy & Basil

  2. Mummy and I will have to get our thinking caps on!

    • Whee cannot cannot wait to see what you come up with!!! The adventurous tale of Explorer Misakai? Dr Misakai and the magical stethoscope? Madame Misakai and the lady genie of the lamp?!

      So much excitment! So little time! 😉


      • Well, its definitely an adventure story, but its too long:-( Only just started and its already 500 words!! There’s still sooo much to happen yet. Might have to cut out a character or two…

      • Maybe you could do a short version for the competition and the a long version on your blog? The competition one could be almost a taster for the rest. Whee cannot wait to read it when it’s done!


  3. what a wonderful idea! So pleased to meet you! We just learned about you from our friend Musaki and we are now following you! What an adorable blog you have!

  4. Wow! I can’t wait to see who enters their special stories for Basil, paw pats, Savannah

  5. That’s a lovely idea for a competition – plus Basil will get lots of bedtime stories for Mum to read to him from all the entries! My Mom will try to come up with a little story about me wandering into Pawland but she’s ever so busy right now. I’ll just give her my most pitiful STARE until she does it! Meanwhile, I’ve been trying to leave a comment on Nibbles’ birthday blog but can’t – so would you please give him a special Sammy Hug from me????????? Thank you!!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy
