Yes, we have an addict living with us and it is not a pretty sight.
In fact, I live with two addicts! Look at them staring at the rug, looking for any stray scraps of catnip. It’s downright creepy.
And then they lie around in a stupor. The withdrawls leave Binga in a foul mood and then she chases Boodie all over the house and beats her up. Don’t let anyone tell you that catnip addiction is harmless — it turns you into a hideous nip fiend and your friends don’t know you anymore!
I really don’t get the whole catnip thing at all. It is all right, but I don’t go crazy over it like those two. They say about a third of cats don’t respond much to catnip. So I guess I am that one out of three.
I only allow myself a quick roll, and then I’m out.
I love the way cats act when they have catnip. Most of them like to roll in it. Some become very hyper soon after they’ve had it. I’ve seen a few that don’t like it much, but most do.
Don’t know much about catnip, but I guess cat’s love it. Kind of like booze for cats? Thanks for dropping by my blog and I hope I see you again soon.

I see nothing wrong with this addiction. Wish I had some rigfht now. Have a great weekend.
You’re a sensible and bootiful girl my friend.
Sparkle, you are just so poised and aloof in that photo, too enlightened to succumb to the call of the ‘nip!
We both like nip but it doesn’t make us mean or anything. It does make us pretty loopy sometimes though!

We have lots of nip addicts in our house!
Alice Audrey says
Well of course you’re the exception, Sparkle. You’re much too dignified for such a silly addiction.
Katnip Lounge says
We have a couple of kats here who enjoy the nip’s effects, but not eating it…Daddy takes cut leaves and gives ’em a gummy on their lips! Then they get all crazy like the rest of us!

WOW What a rug!
Livvy gets cantankerous with the nip, so we try to keep her on the bandwagon, unless my Hubs gets the crazy idea of bringing home a catnip-filled toy.
My other kitties like it: one gets goofy and the other gets bitey. What IS it about catnip?!
I’m not surprised to see that you’re immune and above all such nonsense, Sparkle. You could even start a Just Say No campaign! 😉
I skipped Photo Hunters today. Too sick (again, blast it!) and gotta work in the garden. Have a blessed weekend.
What cute cats! At least this addiction is harmless!
My addiction is up too…
Random Animals says

We are addicted to Cats. Your present yours beautifully.
One of our Cats has been away for 2 days. No sign of him.

The Island Cats says
It may be time for an intervention in your house….
Sparkle, a bunch of us don’t get into the nip. So you are not alone. You are right, that some cats just don’t care about it.
Have a wonderful week end.

Maybe they need a 12-paw program?
