Mancat Monday

On Saturday, I was lying in my special spot on the back of the couch (this is the couch from our new living room furniture that Mommy and Daddy bought just a few months ago) enjoying the sun and considering taking a nap when Mommy came in with some green stuff in her hands. What could it be? She handed some to Fagin....

Fagin was lying on our love seat and seemed very interested in whatever Mommy handed him. "Hmmmmm," I thought. "It's green and leafy and came in with Mommy from the backyard and she said she was going out to our garden. What could it be? Could it be...."
OUR NIP!! It was leaves from our very own catnip plants that Mommy and Daddy planted in the garden in our backyard - remember this picture? NIP NIP NIP!!! And Mommy said the plants are doing very well and we now have tons of our very own fresh nip!!

I had to have some! Mommy had put some on a paper towel on the table and well, I AM a pirate so I stole it for myself. Oh it is so good!! Very good stuff!!

Mommy took this picture right when I began to nip out. The nip was so good that I didn't even notice her taking this picture. Oh fresh nip is awesome! For this Mancat Monday I say that real mancats love the nip!!
PS: If you are wondering why there are no pictures of Dante having the fresh nip, it is because he was sleeping at the time. Don't worry though - Mommy gave him some later and he loves it too!!

Oh my goodness fresh nip that you grew in your own dirt in your own yard...I'm with Tybalt, I'm jealous too.

Captain Jack you are looking furry FURRY handsome in your sofa (and that does indeed look like a really comfortable spot).

I was really afraid last night because we had very very bad thunderstorms. I do not like thunder and lightening.

Fresh nip always looks so delicious, but I only like the dried up stuff. I'm glad you had a good nip fest!

Oh fresh nip! We love that, our Mommy is busy killing our plant :-)

My Darling Dante,
Thank you for your offer of shelter during these trying times. I'll be right over - I just have to get back by dinner time, because Mommy said there's going to be a head count! And she said no parties, cause she's coming home for an hour every day - sheesh!
Purrs and head bumpies,
Your Black Pearl

Nip good!

Eric and Flynn said...

Whoa!! Fresh nip straight furrom the garden. We've told mum befurr we want our own nip plants but all she grows are boring old beans and tomatoes and fings like that.

Sunny's Mommy said...

I have never seen catnip leaves that big. Probably because ours inside wasn't allowed to grow that big due to the cats constantly eating it :-p

Excellent job stealing the nip, Capt. Jack!

Fat Eric said...

Oh that looks like lots of fun.

I am one of those cats who doesn't care much for nip. I can take it or leave it. But I am glad you are enjoying yours.
