Nippy Ears

Does anyone else's kitty do this? When Star plays with catnip toys, she hugs the toy and cleans her face and ears! It's so funny! But she does it every single time. Is my cat the lone goofball who does this?

Oh nippy pillow.. I love you!
 
 
 
Love you so much I must rub my ears..
 
 
 
Purrrrrr feels so good...
 
 
 
Oh, hello... What are you looking at?
 
 
 
We're all done here. Move along.
 
 
Have a nippy great weekend everyone!

I wipe my face with my catnip toys...there's probably some licking going on too. Then there's hissing...when Waffles Too tries to steal it.

That's adorable! And her "what are YOU looking at?" look is so funny!

Pierre rubs himself all over anything with nip, and it's always left damp with drool when he's done.

My Skipper does the same with her catnip mouse. Have a great day.

I do that! The boy cats in our house don't though. Maybe it's a girl thing?
Purrs to you,

i think star has come up with her own unique move...

Bellen said...

Some of mine do that once in a while. It may have to do with getting the catnip smell over their faces - or off their faces. But whatever the cause, some of mine do that, yes.

Bom final de semana!

Henry's favourite toys are the ones with catnip :-)

Photo Cache said...

Emma does it some times, but not all the times. I think it's cute. Buster doesn't care for the nip at all.

Everyone knows a touch of Nip Perfume in the ears is just the thing. Here's to a great, Nippy weekend! Purrs...

Katie Isabella said...

Sometimes I do...especially if it's fresh nip.

Eric and Flynn said...

I do that! As soon as I play with nippy toys I have to wash at the same time. Then I start chewing on my back foot. It is always the same foot, never the others.

You are a silly girl, Star!

Cara n Crew said...

mol! Star, you are a bit silly :) Smidgen likes to rub her face (face, head, ears) on the nippy toys like you are doing in the first picture...but that's about as far as she takes it :D Have a nip-tastic weekend!

Cathy Keisha said...

When I decide to play with nip toys, I can be seen doing that, as could the cats before me. Star is perfectly normal.

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

Oh yes, we know that look well. "Move along, mommy. Nothing to see here."

The Cat From Hell said...

Me don't do that, me likes to eats catnip and do not plays with catnip toys, but Kozmo does that!

Star darling, I rub all my toys (not just the nippy ones) ALL OVER MY FACE over and over again. I do not usually include the earsies, but suddenly it seems like a purrfeckly good idea. I think I might start adding an ear flourish at the end.

Mr Puddy said...

MOL...Play and Having a break..New trick, I would love to try that, Star ; )

And thanks so much to make a comment for me at mousebreath.

FURKIDSMOM said...

We love to rub all over our nippy toys!

We came over to mention changing browsers for the photo problem, but we see someone has already mentioned it.

Willow said...

I do that too each time especially when playing with my nip pillow there is just something about it just makes sense.

Father Tom said...

I make sure I rub my catnip toys all over me. That way when I can't find one, I have eau de nip already on my furs!

Noir the Texas Tabby said...

My Uncle MaxMaxx does that to nip toys--rubs all over emm but he doesn't look half as cute as Star! :)

meowmeowmans said...

Tee hee! Moosey does that, too. So do some of the kitties at the shelter. :)

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hello Star, Darling! So, were you rooting for my Niners?? No? Well, what about now???

Patty Woodland said...

Harry the Farm cat does this too

Janet Blue said...

That's definitely unusual Star but whatever makes you happy. Go for it!

Beau Beau & Angie said...

Star sure is enjoying dat nip - taking a baff or not...

michico*Adan said...

Nippy Heaven.
I would do that, too.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Star, darling, I think you have to put a claw or five into your Mommy to remind her *I* need some new Start photos. Just sayin'.

Oui Oui said...

Uh oh, we don;t know of any other kitty that does that, but we do think its very cute!
