Our Mommy wonders if the big kitties would let her snorgle their bellies! 🙂

Of course the big cats loved nip! Who doesn’t? Those naysayers must be dog people.
Cathy Keisha says
Yes, but do they like Silvervine? MOL!

What a great video!!! They’re only 30 minutes from me, so it’s pretty pathetic that I’ve never made the time to visit!

We think the videos proved that kitties like catnip, no matter their size.

I LOVE knowing they can and do enjoy nip!
That was fun to watch. I wonder if nip gives them the munchies too.

Sometimes a nip fest is just a nip fest and those big cats show how to truly enjoy some nip time with their brand of cuteness.

We love that video! Big cats really do have some things in common with smaller ones. We also love Big Cat Rescue. Our head peep has visited there, and it’s an amazing place for big cats who needed a forever home.
What a great video. I enjoyed that a lot. So much fun to see all those big cats having a good time. That is a great organization.Take care.
The Kitties of Purring Pines says
Good research! We don’t act the same way to nip every time! Some hoomans just don’t get us felines! Happy Sunday!
The Paw Relations says
What a great movie for a Sunday morning.
