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.
