Catnip

I have never owned a cat so have to admit that I know very little about them. I did fall in love with one though....I was in Hawaii staying in a rain forest and this beautiful white cat took a liking to me. It would wait until we came home from our outings and jump up on my lap as soon as I sat on the porch and begin to purr......I came home and searched it out it it was....



a Himalayan. They are not only beautiful but expensive...figures.


I recently ran across a video about cats liking catnip and had to admit I had no idea what that was.

It is a perennial herb belonging to the mint family and can invoke a psychosexual reaction in some cats.....check it out

I thought this was too funny and if I believed in re-incarnation I would want to come back as a cat loving catnip!

We almost bought a house if they would include their cat. The sign outside said "Beware Attack Cat" and I swear I have never heard a cat hiss and growl protecting property like this one. He thought he was some kind of tiger for sure.

Yes I got that video in an email and have been looking for some catnip to try every since:)

Love that video. I had a cat once who didn't seem to like catnip. What was that about?!

Oh you are so cute. Of course big cats like catnip. Looks pretty good doesn't it?

Beautify cat. Sam Cat, Mimi's Siamese gets a dusting of dried cat nip on his food daily. Peace
