357/365: No creature was stirring

Well, that’s not true, actually. A little girl (friends of the family) made a catnip mouse for our cat, Missy. This is homegrown catnip, and it must be high potency! This is a picture synopsis of the scene as it unfolded late this evening after I gave the mouse to Missy.


Missy is my little, feisty, mega-personality cat. She was enjoying the catnip mouse.

Then Marbles, my big, old, gentle tomcat decided that catnip was really supposed to be for him.

There was a bit of a kerfuffle.


And, surprisingly, Marbles won for once! 😮

    Hey, he was fighting for Nip! Mr. Laid-back took a stand and won the day!
    They are beautiful cats!

      That last picture of him just cracks me up. He was moving his head so fast he was a blur! It’s just not like him at all. 😀 And thank you. They are handsome cats. Marbles even has the word “HOT” on his side in his swirly markings.

    LOL! It’s amazing what a little catnip will do for even an older cat.

    My son keeps insisting I ‘drugged’ my cats with catnip, because they seemed ‘tired and depressed’ after they had their play 😀
