Thomas Rubino: That is a LOT of cats in that picture, and here I thought I have had too many cats at some points in my life. Wow.
For what it's worth, I put a metal milk crate over a catnip plant once, and the cats kept it trimmed to a perfect cube. Any shoots that came out were gone.
Ha Ha pearl; We are down to eleven at this point... They are almost all little nip heads.
Just this morning I ordered a 1/2 pound of 2019 fresh organic catnip for the little addicts! I guess I'm just an enabler...
They sure are my buddy's though...
It's too late for my cat. She skipped the catnip stage & went directly for the hard stuff. Bee Balm. Maybe that explains why I recently found her 40 feet up a tree after being missing for a day. She walks by this once lush & beautiful plant before looking around to make sure nobody notices. Then she either does a full face plant or rolls around in it belly up for a few minutes. Sometimes both. She's in deep. It's hard not to notice.
Argue for your limitations and they are yours forever.
My daughter says her cat is a DRUG DEALER. Then she explained... the cat gets high on these toxic mushrooms that grow in their lawn. Lately, she's been seen leading neighbor cats to their mushrooms & teaching THEM to eat them. They come home sometimes, to see several cats 'high' in their yard.
Living in the woods, I had an old basket from a grocery cart, put it over my catnip plant, and after about 4 months it went from a 4" pot size to a full basket. Only had 2 cats, but the farm next door had about 10, they kept the basket trimmed down nicely.
