Confession: I have had my cat, Xyla, for a year and a half. In that time I have never once given her cat nip. Not because I am opposed to it, but just because (honestly) I have even once thought about it. I think about treats for the dogs almost constantly… but sweet Xyla just sort of gets overlooked. Bless her.
What can I say– Xyla is, more or less, the equivalent of the forgotten ‘middle child’ around these parts. Literally, sometimes I see her and jump because I forgot that I even HAD a cat. If she didn’t meow and chirp so much, I’d probably forget to even feed her….. Just kidding!
…. Kind of!
Anyway. Today while picking up some dog food, I saw little pre-sewn fabric ‘pillows’ of catnip being sold at the check out. On impulse and an thoughts of “Oh yeah! Why haven’t I ever given Xyla cat nip?!“, I grabbed one for my dear, unloved & neglected pussy cat. I was not sure HOW she would react (some cats, supposedly, go nuts for it.. and some don’t so much as flick a whisker at the stuff) but had my iPhone camera ready just in case…
Let’s just say… She liked it.
