With the advent of legal & medicinal catnip.
We have a growing epidemic across the country!
Kitty mom and dads take note!  Do you know where your kitten is?

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...

I think this one might be being kind so as to get some catnip!  Very thoughtful.

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.

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.
