The cats have found the catnip bush in the garden and Kyoko is the first to claim it as his own with great big Kyo-hugs.

His mood is soured when Lisa comes into the picture and wants some of that fragrant catnip for herself.

 

Its a beautiful sunshiny day, a perfect chance to catch up on some beauty sleep.

Or so Nice Guy thought… until many annoyances came his way.

Luckily, Nice Guy is a good sport and finally did end up getting his much deserved nap.

This year in growing catnip from seed, it looks like it is doing well. So I decided to prune off the tops of each stem to promote branching out.

Purr Purr!

I knew that a certain someone would enjoy eating that bunch of nip clippings.

She means me, right?

No! Not you, Lisa.

He likes those fresh leaves.

As I began feeding him the leaves and playing with him Lisa sat about a foot away.. giving us such an unimpressed look.

Really, Nice Guy? Aren’t you too old to be playing like that.

Of course I was planning on giving her some of the catnip all along. But when I did this is what happened:

*Awkward Silence*

Oh come on Lisa! Nice Guy isn’t some sort of toxic chemical plant. You can share…

No, no, no. I couldn't possibly eat that. Nice Guy breathed on it.

No, no, no. I couldn’t possibly eat that. Nice Guy breathed on it.

*Heavy Breathing*

Lisa in a bag

To Lisa this is normal… to me it is ultra ADORABLE!

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.

Lisa fell asleep with her eyes open while trying to watch tv… it is kind of creepy but very cute at the same time. (we were watching case closed if anyone was wondering.)

Lisa is playing with my stuffed sea serpent puppet when all of a sudden she notices that everybody is watching her! My daughter even does a cute voice for her while she is in “tongue stuck out funny face” awe.

Maybe she heard us talking about  Bub the cat and was trying to steal his signature look and fame? Naaah.

Sea Serpent Drawn

Here is my Inktober drawing for today, it is the puppet stuffed animal that lisa was chewing on! Don’t worry he isn’t hurt/ripped/punctured. Anyhow I always thought this little guy was goofy looking and very cute at the same time. It was a gift from my mom 😀

Lisa helping out

Just doing a little computer work, you know… fancy mouse wiggling and clicking.

In this video Lisa meets another one of the neighborhood cats whom I have already met several times with Kyoko.
I’m very happy that I have enough time to be able to accompany my cats outdoors where they can be free and meet other cats like themselves. I feel like if i wasn’t there to be a mediator that some of these meetings may not go quite as peacefully.

Its great that pretty much all of the cats we have met are tolerant if not friendly to our cats.
Lisa wasn’t too comfortable with this new kitty’s scent so she decided to climb a tree instead of sticking around.

Personally, I think she was showing off her skills to impress everybody.

Our cat scratching post has taken a lot of abuse over the past 3 years. It was in pretty sad condition, with just shredded scraps of carpet hanging to the bones of the post.

Today I finally got inspired to repair the scratching post and give it renewed life!
Here is two of our main post frequenters, Lisa and Kyoko showing their approval of the new carpet adorning the post.

I used an old rug to replace the deceased carpeting, it took me at least 2 hours to complete the whole process of measuring, cutting out carpet and removing the old super dusty ripped carpeting, then stapling in the new carpet.

I’m so glad we didn’t have to just buy a new scratching post, we are really pretty much broke…
Plus throwing big things like this always feels like such a waste.
If I can fix old things like this it restores purpose and gives me a feeling of accomplishment. Now every time I see the scratch post I don’t have to think “Sigh, Its all torn.” Or “I WISH we could afford a new one”.

Our cats used to go flying off of this cat tree like squirrels! Ever since the GIANT rip they haven’t been frolicking off of it so carefree. I hope they will use it like they used to <3

Here are some before and after pictures:

Lisa stopped my work on the scratching post about half way through. She was all like “WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY BED?!”
