Fresh Nip!

Mama bought us a little pot of catnip.  I've only had the dried kind, which I love, but the fresh stuff has a wonderful minty scent.

It's pretty powerful stuff.  Just one or two leaves do the trick.


Yep, I got a little carried away.

This made for a very fun Saturday morning!

  1. Oh Lucy, how cool!
    You know...mommy here also tried some "magic mint"but I think it doesn't work well because I didn't like :(
    Better try this nip next time!
    Have a great week sweetie,

  2. Lucy, how lucky you are! We've never had fresh catnip. Our human keeps an eye out for it, but so far hasn't seen any. We can see what a great time you had with yours on Saturday! :-)

  4. I is so glad us dogs isn't into nip coz if'n we woz, I would never get fresh. Mom has such a black thumb. I do grab a bite of greens on our hikes on occasion but mom tells me LEAVE IT if'n she catches me. I dunno why. (No, no hiking yesterday coz of the rains. Bummer.)

  9. Lucy, you are a dead ringer of my cat. Humans sometimes drink too much and make fools of themselves so I guess it's okay if cats make fools of themselves over cat nip. We've got to buy cat food today. I think I'll buy some fresh cat nip. My cat is old. There's nothing like watching an old fool.

  19. That nip looks like some seriously fun stuff. "The Boys" only get it in a toy...hmmm, may have to reconsider.

  22. Hi Lucy! The catnip looks like so much fun. We need to get that for Kovu. Did you know that Kovu went on an "adventure" for 4 nights? I sure wish I knew where he went, but he is home safe and sound!

    Say hi to "the Beans"!

  23. Fresh nip is good but the nip-hangover can be bad!
    Lucy it looks like you had FUN this weekend! :)

  24. Woo-hoo! Looks like you had a wonderful time with your gift! I like fresh green grass on occasion when I am outside, settles my tummy. We dogs don't have anything like your "nip", darn it.
