First Nippy Fest of the Season

by Cat Crazy

IMG_2472The human was waylaid by the influenza virus for half a week, but yesterday she was better and back at it.  After checking the mail toward evening, she thoughtfully brought in the first tender catnip leaves of the seasons for the furry people.

IMG_2471The first batch she got contained insufficient leaves as suddenly the whole crew showed up for the nippy fest. She went back out and retrieved a larger cluster of leaves and you can see the results.

IMG_2481Fireball got so high that he literally “swam” around on the floor.

IMG_2478Clearly, the human will need to bring in lots of fresh catmint this spring and summer.  Interestingly, the meows are for the most part quite lackadaisical about dried catnip. Fortunately, there is no shortage of the fresh organic kind growing in this yard in warm weather so we should have happy kitties this year.
