Catnip

Sometimes a kitty needs to let go and have a little fun. Yesterday was one of those days. We spent the morning on the deck enjoying the sun and the breeze before it became the oven of H. E. Doublehockeysticks outside. Mommy bought some new catnip that we had never tried before. She opened the package and spread some around on the deck. She has to spread it far enough around so that we don't get hissy over each others "stash." Below is a photo of me enjoying this new catnip.
Kitties, if your beans are ever in a store and see this type of catnip, tell them to please buy some for you. It's awesome! It's called West Paw and you can buy it here. You will not be disappointed! There are no stems or fillers. Just the good stuff. Our fresh 'nip plant is not long for this world because of the awful heat so it's good to have back-up!

I'm just glad they don't make dognip. Diamond is silly enough!

It is very interesting how some 'nip is much better than other 'nip. I will try to get some of that West Paw brand!

Hmm Parker, cats say 'nip is good, but I dunno, I don't know if hamsters feel the reactions, becuz people don't make 'nip, they make bananas or tomatoes grow but no catnip :(

Now we can also understand your obsession about the catnip. We love it too. Although I guess there's better one out there than the one we just found. Have a great Sunday!

Sometimes mine mombean can get fresh nip at the farmers market. Ooooo, boy! That fresh stuff is da bomb. Mostly she get basil, which she says is nip for beans.

Have a nice snooze on the deck and enjoy the breeze.

That catnip really looks enjoyable. Dare I say they should put your picture, perhaps the very one we see here, on their package?
