Catnip Addict

When I'm away and Sarah takes care of the cats (this is usually only a couple of times a year, but the cats know her by now), she puts a bunch of dried catnip leaves on Scarlett's favorite napping blanket.  Scarlett, who can't get enough of the 'nip, loves sleeping amidst the leaves in a semi-drunken haze.  She looks peevish in these photos because they were taken when I was back from my trip and the catnip no longer had any potency.

"I'm not an addict. I just really, really love catnip."

"They do call it catnip, after all.  That means it's ok."

I've grown some "nip" from seed (outdoors). If you think she goes crazy with the dry stuff keep your eyes out for fresh leaves (but be sure to wash your hands or wear gloves when handling--not toxic to you just the cats will tend to bite the hand that nips them) then stuff some in a knotted cloth or old sock and watch both your kiddies go nuts--highly recommend one for each.

Scarlett, you look so pretty! We think your mom should freshen up your nip though!

Don't worry, Scarlett, I hear that catnip is non-addictive!

There is nothing wrong with a little of what you fancy and if you fancy having some catnip, you have some :)xx

We agree, loving Nip does not mean addiction. We mean, its not like we go just have some whenever we want. We restrict ourselfs to Special Events...

Like whenever we can get it, but lets not go into that right now...
