New and Improved 'Nip!

As the Rudester reported on Monday, when the 'rents went on vacation our 'nip plant bought the farm. It was pitiful and I know that this photo is hard to look at. But that's what no water and 90+ degrees will do to a plant. We were very, very sad.
Now, I have to give credit to the 'rents. They felt bad that there would be no 'nip crop to enjoy on those long summer evenings, so Mommy went out and found what was sure to be the last living 'nip plant for sale in our little corner of O Hi O. Daddy was a hero and planted the new nip so we can have party-time on the deck again!

...Extra added value - when the plant is watered, Rudy gets a little sippy. It's all good kitties!

Totally appropriate that the humans correct the errors of their ways. We cats expect that!

We are sorry about the plant, but looks like the new one might do ok with the right attention. Mom is fascinated by the idea of planting it in a hanging basket....hmmmmmm
