Earlier this week, I laid out some newspaper for my cat to play on. She loves to shred it up, and roll around on it. I dunno why, but she loves newspaper more than any cat toy I have ever bought her.

So I decided to get my cat stoned. I sprinkled some catnip out... she's loving it, rolling around in it and all.

A couple days later, I sprinkled some more catnip around the newspaper, and the same thing, she starts rolling aroung on it, happy as a clam.

A day, later, same thing.

Okay, so fast forward to today. Now she's sitting on the newspaper all the time, meowing at me. She won't leave me alone. She just sits there whining?

Does that make me a pusher? Am I a bad cat daddy?

*edit* Oh yeah, she's 'Nipped'

One of my cats begs for catnip a couple times a day. Once a day is enough. Keep supplying.

We've got a cat that loves to shred newspaper, no catnip involved. She'll just lay there, grab it with her front paws, and rake the heck out of it with her rear claws. Funny to see. Maybe it her editorial comment on the quality of the paper. And my raccoon loves marshmallows like its the raccoon version of crack.

Cat smack

I mean: Cat sack. I got a 16 year old who loves plastic sacks. One bag is good for drooling, pawing and nesting. Give him several at once and he literally falls over faint. Would hate to see what happened if I mixed nip into the equation... I just might be down there with him.

:eek:

Gosh, I'd love to be "bagged" right now.

My cousin's cat can't handle her catnip- she sh*ts herself.

Head-in-the-jar is totally out of the question........unless she's constipated, I suppose!

Too late, she looks strung-out and hopeless. You know what they say “Once a junkie, always a junkie”. If you want her to stay around and not get picked up for a felonious act, like breaking into the neighbor’s house in search of a fix, you are now going to have to keep furnishing her the nip.

Please, don't ask me how I know this. It just brings back bad memories.

Wouldn't that be a "felinious" act? ;^P

My two fuzzballs aren't really affected by catnip. They're both adopted from a shelter, so perhaps they're former street cats and used to harder stuff. Turkey, on the other hand, they would steal off my plate if I turned by back.

Our one cat, Garfield, is the some way. He LOVES the little plastic scaks. Throw one on the floor and open it a little so he can crawl in, he'll have the time of his life. Even seen him sleep in it.

I bought this cardboard cat scratcher that you can sprinkler catnip on.....They fight over it now. Funny as hell!!

My cats know the word for "turkey"and will come running. Also they know "chicken", and the MOST popular is "SHRIMP".

I'll put a big wad o' fresh nip on a paper towel, and one of my cats will get so stoned she'll drool all over herself and the paper towel and make a gigantic green slimy mess. So she only gets her hit on the kitchen tile.

Smoosh it between your fingers like you're breaking up oregano for sauce; it helps release the good stuff.

My old dog used to like cat nip too.
mine too. she stole the cat's catnip toy and has been chewing on it for the last week. i just took it away from her this morning so that she wouldn't rip it to shreads and then i'd be left to clean up catnip from every surface in the living room.

i bought the cat a new catnip toy that will remain in the part of the house that is off limits to the dog.

I housesat for this woman who told me her cat would be hiding under the bed everytime I came in and not to worry as long as the food got eaten, strangers scared the cat. When I was first in the house I noticed the catnip jar. I put some nip out with the food. Repeat twice a day for two days, the cat is coming out from under the bed and rubbing my legs.

Yeah, they like their drugs.

I did have one cat that wouldn't touch the stuff, but she had control issues. She attempted to drive away the other two cats and two dogs by attacking them whenever they tried to eat. Eventually she ran away.
