Tabby Tattletale Tuesday


Life at our place always seems to get VERY interesting in the spring.  All of us kitties want to get out, stretch our legs and taste the first tender baby nip of the year.
 
So...mom was not totally surprised when she looked at the garden and saw this...

 
She tiptoed quietly...with the flashybox going like crazy.   This is an introoder who used to come in the garden last year but mom could never get close.
 
With his face firmly planted in the nip he was not about to leave.

He let the pawpawrazzi have their way.

This is OUR nip!  MOM!  Chase him away!
 
What?  He said thank you?  You're gonna let him?

Dad had to hold Jonesie back...actually she was fine with him.  I'm just exaggerating.
 
Not that I'd ever do that.

 
We think he has a home.  He looks well cared for and he always leaves the yard towards the houses nearby, not the apartments.   Jonesie's nip is too much to resist.

Some neighbor kitty has dipped into our nip too! My human has caught her, but we haven't.

We may even introod into your yard with that nip!

We're sorry we haven't visited in a while. Mom Paula has been recuperating from her surgery and working too hard. We think we need to hire a new mom.

That's what happens when you leave the primo nip out in the open! (hey, what was your address again? *innocent eyes*

An introoder in your garden? Maybe the nip looks irresistibly yummy. Hmm... May i have some? =)

That happens with our nip too. At least he had the decency to say thank you.

Your whole garden looks so pawsome, we can't blame him for stopping by to try the 'nip!

We used to have cats next door who rolled in our catnip and broke all the stems

Hey, he should be paying for that!

(Though we can't say we blame him; we'd probably do the same, if we could!)

Katie Isabella said...

Oh that was a sweet sight..I am so glad that the flashy box was going. xoxo

Terri said...

That must have been really hard to watch that introoder nibble on your nip and relax in your garden! The introoder is a very pretty cat. We agree he probably has a home--he's a plump clean cat :)

Well, what kitty COULD resist! It looks like plenty to go around, especially for a neighbor who also happens to be quite beautiful!

So nice of you to share your bountiful harvest!

Brian said...

That is a fine looking neighbor and sharing is cool, as long as he doesn't tell too many others!

better watch out or the cops will bust you for "nip dealing" in the neighborhood!

I love your garden!

meowmeowmans said...

Well, that nip of yours does look pretty awesome. We can understand how that neighbor kitty was not able to stay away!

When you're an addict, you don't care about the pawparazzi!! mol

Karen Jo said...

What cat could resist nip like that? I hope he/she didn't do much damage. I am hoping to grow some catnip myself, if Spring ever finally gets here. It snowed a little again today.

Oh my goodness! Shouldn't there be a toll or a fee for whiffing your nip?

Deb Barnes said...

Oh my goodness! That sure was exciting! We are glad to hear the kitty has a home - nice of him to come visit you all! Purrs from the Zee/Zoey gang
