Catnip, Take Two

If you read Monday’s Post you know I tried bringing two catnip plants into the house. That was a major failure but you have to learn somehow. I decided to keep the plants outside and just bring a few leaves in at a time, which I did Tuesday. That went better from my perspective but I’m sure the cats preferred the entire plants. Plus, as usual, Chris spoiled it for Floki and Frankie.

Naturally, the silver lining seemed smaller and the dark cloud bigger when I went outside yesterday and saw this.

It seems that a stray cat or other animal found my plants and decided to dig out the dirt. Heavy sigh.

    Bet that stray kitty thinks you are a pretty good guy to provide that nip and will be back for seconds! MOL.. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer

    Chris is like Binga when it comes to catnip. We have a built-in planter full of nip, and the neighborhood cats indulge in it every so often. But that’s okay, since there’s enough to go around.

    You’re too funny Chris! Hey, one time the Dad had some outside catnip growing in hanging posts but some teenagers stole it, they must have thought it was human nip.

    Forgot to mention the reason I use a hanging basket for my outdoor catnip is because ANY outsie cat will discover it on the ground. Learned THAT lesson after the first year of planting it in the flowerbed.

    Is Frankie getting blonder? It seems like his coloring has looked somewhat closer to Chris’s at some points (or it might be that I inadvertently changed the brightness on my screen πŸ™‚ )

          Sometimes I post old photos of Tigger which could be confusing. Tigger was darker than Chris when we adopted Chris but now Chris looks like the same color as Tigger was back then.
