Post 1104: Deborah’s cats get a ‘nip treat…

Deborah of the cats-to-Paris post has good news for her three kitties: The ‘nip is flourishing! She writes:


My garden has done well this year, but the outstanding crop of the year goes to my catnip plant, which is two years old.

It is in full bloom now.

So I decided to see if the cats appreciated the crop.  I brought in a branch and left it on the door of the carrier that André has claimed as his home.

But he is not the principal addict in the family.  Soon Charles arrived.
There was a bit of a scuffle.  Charles is alpha cat, but André got his turn too.

Fortunately they know when to quit and call it a day, although not without salivating all over me and getting a good scratch on cheeks and tummy.


Thanks, Deborah! Not only do your contributions add a nice additional touch of black “cat-ness” to the blog, I enjoy seeing and reading how your kitties are doing!

  1. Interesting post. I love to see kitties enjoying nip. Definitely the fresh stuff gets more attention than the dry but in the winter there is no choice so Shoko likes it but Kali is not as keen on it.


  2. Lovely series of photos how to use catnip.
    It is interesting how different cats are with nip. Kosmo is our first cat who just don’t care of nip. We had one little girl earlier who enjoyed, her whole face was wet, and she really was out of this world.

    • Same here. Andy really, really, really loves the stuff, and Dougy sort of likes the dried kind. He always reacts to the fresh leaves as if they are too strong a scent for him, but Andfy especially likes the fresh leaves.
