Silvervine, Silvervine, It's Crazy Time For The Kitties!

Silvervine, Silvervine, It's Crazy Time For The Kitties!

Yeah, if I had more ambition at the moment I'd finish the song. Instead I'll get to the answer to yesterday's question!

We had guesses of nip, guesses of vine, a guess of a new kitty!

Those who guessed silvervine were correct! Yay!!!

We got the 'vine to offer in Winnie's Wish Summer FUNdraiser toys, but of course we had to do a quality control test first, right? Let me tell you right now, it was a HIT! Yow! Especially with Star!
I'd seen other people put a pinch on a washcloth and give that to their kitties, so that's what we did. I'm telling you, a tiny pinch was enough to send them into raptures!

Here are just a few of the many pictures we have of silvervine snorting kitties!

Star first.
Oh dear heaven... this is ...too awesome!
 
 

You have GOT to get some of this stuff...
 
 

Who's drooling? I don't know what you're talking about..
 
 

Thank goodness mom put this stuff on a cloth, I can dry my face! Yeeeha!
 
 
 

Then Leo
Holy catfish Catwoman! This thing is fan-TASTIC!
 
 

What? You got your own, keep away from mine!
 
 

Do not even THINK about taking it back, mommy!
 
 

I'm going to hug it and kick it and call it George..



There are more pictures, I'll share them another day, but wow! I did not expect this big of a reaction! Even Leo got his cloth all wet, though not as soaked as Star got hers! Leo kicked his a lot, Star rubbed on hers a lot. Two different reactions, two satisfied kitties. Two GIANT naps afterward!


I mentioned the Summer FUNdraiser above, so I'll just put the banner and link here and say that you can get your kitty toys with nip or vine, your choice! or, as one person did, two toys of each!

Goodness. We're going to have to try some of that.

Mum's just rushed off to hide her washcloth in case we "borrow" it and sprinkle the magic dust on it so we can watch her get "high"!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Oh yeah, that vine is some serious stuff! WE got our FUNdraiser toys, and the vine mouse seems to be a BIG hit here, too. :) Enjoy, Star and Leo!

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Once you've had a taste of the 'vine...that stuff is just pure potent pawsomeness!

Kitties Blue said...

That is crazy how much Star and Leo like that. We have never had silver vine. Mom makes catnip toys and so hasn't ordered any of the toys, but we are going to try to convince her to order some of the vine ones for the fundraiser.

Katnip Lounge said...

The Vine is da BOMB!! Daddy keeps ours in a salt shaker and spikes our ESS and cat trees...whooo boy!!!!

Sometimes, Cats Herd You said...

OMC, the drool.... That must be some good stuff!

ANGEL ABBY said...

That has to be primo stuff!

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

We have GOT to try that!

Random Felines said...

gonna have to try some - but mom will have to get LOTS of washcloths to make sure everyone gets their own :)

The Indulged Furries said...

Oh my goodness, you really liked the silvervine. Catnip doesn't do anything for me, but I'm not sure my mom would let me try silvervine. From your reaction, it sound pretty hard core!

Charliepuss said...

Whoa! I gotta get me some of that stuff!

Cathy Keisha said...

This kitteh would NOT mislead you. Vine is divine and evil! I do a lot of rubbing but I also kick it. I love my new toys. Every cat should try it.

Ragdoll Mommy said...

What did you put on them to make them so crazy?!?!?! Lol

Ragdoll Mommy said...

To answer you about Lady's tail.Um I'm not sure,I think she is just a Mixed-breed like Star&Saphira.But I have no idea where her tail went.She might have been born like that,that can happen to some cats but it's kinda rare.Lady has also been abused really BADLY!!!!! By her old owner.And she (the owner might have "cut it off" like with Dogs's tails.Lady is also sadly declawed:-(

Marg said...

That silver vine is strong stuff. It drives us all nuts too. Great pictures of you Star. Glad you had such a good time.

Laila and Minchie said...

We like the idea of putting it on a wash cloth! We'll have to tell our mom about that.

Katie and Glogirly said...

Would you believe I have STILL not tried the illicit VINE?!?!?
Something's gotta change.

The Human says: The first time I gave Spitty the 'Vine, I didn't quite know how to "administer" it so I sprinkled some (TOO MUCH) on a little plate and he jumped up on the table before I could put the plate on the floor. He lapped it all up and turned into a crazed maniac. By the time he jumped off the table it looked like someone had spilled a 1/4 cup of water (his DROOL!!!) and he moaned and rolled around in ecstasy for at least half an hour. Then he ate a whole can of cat food. I have since been MUCH more conservative in my "doses" & do as you did here & put it on a washcloth. But I still think back to that first time and wish I'd video'ed it! XOXOXO

Kjelle Bus said...

You mean that vine is even stronger than the nip that was in the toy´s I got from you the other day ?!

P.S I´m doing a post about it on tuesday or wednesday :)
XOXO

Ragdoll Mommy said...

Thanks for coming by.And thanks for wishing mom to get better soon:-)

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi darling! Well, no new post, alas, but at least there are many exciting close-ups for a ManCat to dream about....NO, not YOU, Leo! As if!
