‘Nip

This ‘Nip post is purrticipating in Comedy plus’s Awww Monday blog hop…. I don’t know about you, but my main ‘nip patch (which is near M’s grave & in the ground, so it’s vulnerable to nip-stealing-storms) inspires the Awww feeling in me.

MY ‘Nip…

Dear Furiends, 20180529_112058

Do you see Katsu in MY ‘Nip? He is a bit obsessed with plants and well some, like aloe, can be toxic to kitties, so I had my staff take the potentially dangerous ones outside. Due to his eye problem, Katsu is kinda clumsy, and not allowed outside, unless he’s on a leash, and I know which ones to avoid, so we should be fine.

I had my staff bring in one of my catnip plants, a palm and a pot of lavender, which are all kitty-safe  and  we’re making “kitty potted plant corner” in the catio… Katsu is loving this! Do you see him in MY ‘Nip, yet?

If not, here is a closer look: 20180529_112220

PS: to those of you who suggested that I should have had Ms. Munchkin plant ‘nip in my bed … This isn’t the only pot of ‘nip I own.

Mint…

13227873_10206317397629834_1886694223_nDear Furiends,

Did you know that mint repels insects, so it’s good to plant around your house or have by your doors? I loved the ‘nip plant that that vile hurricane stole and I bring this up in a mint post because catnip is a type of mint. So 10253932_898047713550824_3526470196379477676_nfuriends, urge you to repel bugs from your home with ‘nip, but if you live in a hurricane area, put it in a pot, which you can secure inside…. Hurricanes apparently love it so much they steal it!.

Sunday Selfies

Dear Furiends,20170217_105311

Instead of the traditional Sunday Selfies, M and I decided to make todays post about our Valentine’s gifts (we made out like bandits)  The tulips belong to our staff, but I love them and think they add something to the photos.

The thing on the left is a cat massager with Mister M’s blend sprinkles  on it… it didn’t come with that blend, just some generic ‘nip … we ignored it until the staff corrected the situation. Once they added Cat-a-bliss, we were all over that massager and have not stopped.

The tall thing, in the corner, is an interactive cat feeder puzzle for me – the staff thinks having this will  stop me from hunting and ripping bags open… So far, they are correct. It is made for overweight cays to eat slower but they gave it to me for the challenge.

I even toss food to the bottom for M. Aren’t I a great sisfur?

20170217_105443The tube is a ball chase that we don’t really care for. Apparently, the staff thought we would enjoy smacking it. Not!

The mice and balls are fun to hide everywhere including outside and in mom’s bed. M also got meds to prevent his frequent UTI issues … so far, he doesn’t mind them, which is good.

(Saphera got a big rawhide bone, but she ate the whole thing, so I don’t have a photo of it.)

Praying Mantis, etc.

mm

Dear Furiends,

A praying mantis was in our house and happened to be on the sliding doors vinyl cling grave yard. (The staff has begun decorating for Halloween, already.)p1190482

Master Munchkin, who is a bit of a science nerd, said it was a boy because it had wings… I had the staff take a few picture before they put it outside… We had to be quick because Purrseidon likes to befriend all sorts of creatures.

Later, I helped Ms. Kiara prepare some orders. She paid me for my services with some of my blend. She claims I spent the next hour insisting on belly rubs, then I became  quite spry for a bit and freaked her out by standing on 2 legs while scratching my ear. I was NOT having some weird seizure, just enjoying the relief of arthritic pain. Once we were done preparing the orders, she and I discussed the possibility of doing some joint marketing and combine my novels with her nip. We haven’t worked out any details, and haven’t even decided if we will be offering p1190355paperback or ebooks with her blends – for that matter, we haven’t decided which blends to combine, but if we did, don’t you think this would be a nice package?

I am joining a September Challenge and answering today’s question about my teen years, which weren’t very long ago. Here is the link if you want to check it out and/or maybe join in, too.

What did you collect when you were a kid? Do you know what prompted the desire to collect these things?

Yes I did. Furthermore, I still have my ball and catnip toy collection.
