Here is a video I recorded in late summer this year of my catnip plant harvest:
Needless to say I smelled just like catnip for the rest of the day. In fact, it was such a powerful smell that I didn’t really want to touch catnip again for at least a week! About a month after this video was made I went back with my clippers and cut the rest of the bush up since it didn’t reflower, I left enough for the plant to grow a little and (hopefully) survive the winter.
Since I harvested catnip… and I have 3 cats, you know what is coming next.
Thats right! Yet another video of my cats enjoying catnip! Hooray!!
For some reason Nice Guy never joins these social events. He is more of a private nip eating kinda guy. Oh well, Lisa and Kyoko really seemed to enjoy themselves.
We were out by the creek chasing water skippers when all of a sudden Lisa burst into tree climbing mode!
She was up in the blink of an eye, bright eyed and bushy tailed she reached the highest part of the tree before my camera powered on.
You can hear how much the local birds didn’t like this feat of strength.
Here are the water skippers, which we did not catch. They are like turbo rockets on the surface of the water.
My daughter and myself were doing some laundry when we found this super cute moth hanging out on the door! So of course, I had to take a video of it because its SO CUTE!! It looks like it is newly emerged because its wings aren’t that big yet.
Don’t worry we were really careful with it and put it in a safe place after filming!
I’m so proud of my boys for getting along so well… most of the time. Its going to be 3 years since we got Kyoko this June- unless I’m mistaken, numbers and time aren’t my good suit!
They play chase together, never fight over food and can lay on the same couch near one another. What more could I ask for in a couple of kitties?
To Lisa this is normal… to me it is ultra ADORABLE!
He is SO cute when he snores… it almost sounds like he is talking through his nose!
Cats are just like children who are trapped indoors for most of the winter when weather is too cold for outdoor fun. When they see the white snowflakes that come down from the sky they get curious. Nothing too energetic, just some quiet time seeing whats going on.
Nice Guy just chillin’ on the patio… all by his lonesome.*I go over and look at him* “Yes human? What do you want?”
*I give him THE LOOK and back away slowly as though I will run away* “OH… Its chase time?!
Then he runs through the house… (Unable to photograph, sorry) and makes adorable purr sounds!
Here is a gif that I made to celebrate the fact that we don’t have to be the same species to be kind to one another!
“What do you mean I’m in the way? I’m providing a valuable service by stopping that annoying clickity clacking sound from happening.”“Get my good side for the newspaper, I’m on the front page right?”“Oh no! I forgot, THIS is my good side… silly me.”(He is quite the big kitty these days, at least he keeps me warm while i can’t get my “work” done.)
