Catnip Connoisseur

Last month I purchased a fresh, living catnip plant. It resided on my porch area for a short bit of time. During that time, we had many cats came by who wanted to pay the young leafy plant a visit.

This lil' tuxedoed youngster came all the way from the next block over to sample our fine fresh leaves of living catnip.

Housecats, especially the youngins, tend to have a sense of entitlement. Or so I have observed thus far.

Young or old, all cats gladly succumb to the effects of the plant at some point during their catnip encounter. It's as if they become possessed by the great spirit of cuddle that only cats are privy to.

The sacred cat leaf can make felines considerably more open to human interaction.

Shortly after these pictures were taken, I planted the catnip in a permanent spot in our planter box. It only lasted a few days . . . I found it completely stripped and uprooted one morning. The little beasts tore the things to shreds in no time . . .
