Catnip Dreams

toys in nipWe love our nip and I know we’re not alone there. We love to smell it, roll in it and eat it.

Mom stores some of our mousies and other small toys in the catnip jar. When she takes them out to give them to us, oh boy, do they smell good! They soak up all those odors and are just wonderful.

After we play with our own for a while, we have to check out each other’s toys. If someone is silly enough to toss their toy into my area, I may just claim it too.

If it is near me, it is mine!

I'll act bored.

I'll pretend I'm stretching and slowly creep around behind her.

I’m looking forward to the spring when my gardener (that would be mom, of course) plants and tends my catnip and silvervine farm. I will oversee the cultivation of my plantation from the comfort of my back window. It will be so glorious — catnip and silvervine stretching as far as a cat’s eye can see, providing me with a never ending supply.

dreaming of catnipUh, what’s that mom? Oh, mom just said, “Whoa there, Christy. I said a couple of plants!” Well, I can dream.

Have a great day and dream big!

    Catnip can grow big….with just a few plants you might have a small forest. I hope so.

    I think your human should be more ambitious about her gardening efforts.

  10. Hey, if you’re going to dream, dream big, we always say. That’s a good idea for soaking up all that nip smell. *MOM! You HAVE to do this!!*

  11. Great idea – storing toys in the catnip jar. We’ll have to tell The Mom to do that for ours too! Enjoy!!

    That is a great idea to marinate your toys in catnip. I need to do that with my cats’ toys. I usually just walk around and sprinkle it on everything like fairy dust 🙂
