Cat Tales ~ Catnip Harvest


Me has a 'medical scrip' for Catnip and Mommy is my Catnip Provider.
These are just a few of the Catnip plants that Mommy grows. She has lots. 


Me likes to savor my catnip. First Me rubs it on my lips and cheeks. 


Then Me nibbles on the leaves. If Daddy's around, he will pick a leaf or two and rub it all over me. He knows I like my cologne to be Eau de Catnip.


This is part of the Catnip after harvest. 


Mommy puts it in this big round thing to dry it out. If she dries it, then Me always has Catnip available for Mes medical condition. This is a photo of Me inspecting the drying process.


Catnip is calming...it is good for frazzled nerves and upset tummys. Even Humans can take it! But Me don't understand why they don't roll around in it. They'd probably feel better if they'd just get down on the rug and roll back and forth in Catnip leaves!

And what exactly is your medical condition, Gomez? A bad case of Cattitude, you say? I see!

Oh we's gonna tell our mommy that we need one of those scripty things too...My sister, Miss Bella doesn't like catnip, apparently 60% of cats (I don't understand what that number means, but mommy knows) can't even SMELL catnip! I feel so sorry for them, I love it however and told mommy that she needs to start planting some just for me!

Kallan ~ Thanks You! Me knows Mes adorable!!! :0)

Debra ~ Cattitude? Hrmph!!! Me thinks Me should speak to HRH about her Human's 'Cattitude'!

Miss Sele ~ Me loves the smell of Catnip, too! Me always knows when Mommy is drying some Catnip in the big round thing. The whole house smells like Catnip - so heavenly.... Have your Mommy go to the local plant store and get a Catnip plant or two. And stay tuned for next week's post - Me thinks you'll like it!

Oh Gomez, you always crack me up and it's been far too long since I called round for a visit! I hope you can forgive me :( Anyway, good to see mommy's looking after you, you're quite the lucky little moggie to have such a great gal taking care of you. Look at all that catnip!

Gomez, my furbabies are all asleep at the moment, so I'll do the typing for them. . they love my homegrown catnip too. It even comes up on its own in the cracks of our front steps, and that gets brought inside too.

You are such a lucky boy to have a Mama that takes such good care of you, and your, ahem. .medicinal needs.
