Cat Alert!!!





Here is my new catnip plant. My people put it in the front yard and protected it so it would get really big and healthy before they gave it to me. Isn't it great? But what is not so great is that since it went up on the back deck, there has been a general cat alert in the neighborhood and all the other cats are coming over to sample it! I have to protect my catnip from interlopers. Have any of you been over to try some of my nip?





Here I am catching one of the neighbor cats who tried to munch on my nip! As you can see, I am staring him down and making sure he knows this is MY nip. Even though I will be 18 years old this summer, I am still very fast with the paw of death.



This was the first visitor to my nip plant. He is the cat I am staring down. I thought it was Rocky the Gutter cat teleporting over to have a nip party, but if it was, he got his colors sort of mixed up while teleporting. This cat has the nerve to sit right on the little sub-roof of my back deck. As you can see, he has been hypnotized by me and is mesmerized by my nip plant!





And of course, Slinky the Grey Cat from next door is trying to get my nip plant. She thinks she is fooling me by hiding in my fountain, but I can see her from the deck. Sometimes Slinky is not very bright.


My day job is now Nip Plant Protector and Consumer. It is a good job. When I don't fall asleep....

Well, you'll just have to harvest the nip and store it in sealable plastic bags so the other kitties can't get it! You deserves all the furesh nip you can get.

Looks like you have your paws full with those nip nappers. We don't blame you for staring the one kitty down.

That plant does look good for nipping. I can see why other cats are sneaking in to try to get some.
