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!

Ooo Prezzies!

Yo! Leo here again!

Thank you everyone who stopped by my BIG BIRTHDAY PARTY yesterday! It. Was. AWESOME!
The parts I remember anyway, bwahaha! Yeah, it was that good!

And lookie! I got some prezzies! That's 'presents' to you who didn't get that, hee hee!

It's really cool! See it? oops, what's the matter, my big paws in the way?

Here it is, pawless, hee!  Isn't it cool? A fishy attacking a butterfly!

Ooo, a second toy! and this one has FEVVERS!
(mom doesn't want you to notice all the fabric snibbles and threads. She's a messy sewer!)

It's kind of a spongy thingie with fevers on it, and it tosses awesomely!

*Snarfle!* And it noms pretty good too!

Oh hey, I dropped it... Can someone pick it up for me. Pwease?

Daddy, you'll pick it up won't you? I'm giving you my best pathetic look.. or maybe I should attack those shoe strings! Is that my third toy??!!

So yeah, I got some awesome toys! Do YOU want some awesome catnip or silvervine toys??
Join in on our Summer FUNdraiser and you can have some all for yourselves!
AND at the same time you are helping the kitties of Winnie's Wish!
I was a Winnie's Wish kitty, saved from a short horrible life as a feral kitten by Chrystal and taught that humans are great and being indoors rocks! And then adopted to my mommy, who I love! And my daddy who gets me toys! (I love him too, but I'm a momma's boy) Anyway, I guess I'm saying Winnie's Wish is a great rescue place and they are struggling so all donations in our Summer FUNdraiser make a HUGE difference to them!

So if you can, join in, and spread the word please!

Thank you peoples!!!!

Leo’s writing today:

Hello kitties, doggies, humans and other critters! I am THREE today!

Yeah! It's muh BIRTHDAY!
My mommy says I’m a big handsome mancat now and I should try to not be so shy and stuff, especially around the ladycats. hee hee So I’ma gonna try!

And to start tryin’ I’ve been a lot more bold around a certain Princes Hissyface Star lately! I walk right up to her, even when she sees me coming! I’ve been sniffing her a lot and she’s been sniffing me back. About time, mommy says, since I’ve been here since I was 9 months old!

I guess it took me a while to realize I am a big guy and I don’t have to be pushed around by a tiny little female dictator!

In honor of being a big bold I-can-do-what-I-want mancat, I did this today:

Leo: See, I can be close to you without us having problems.
Star: Your timing could be better...

Leo: I'll avert my gaze like a gentleman.
Star: It's called a leg, goober.
That’s right, ol’ Hissyface was takin’ a baff on the bed and I jumped up, bold as brass, and laid down right by her! And she didn’t even hiss at me! She tried to glare holes through my fur, but I just laid there and basked in mommy’s praise for being a good boy!

Ok, ok, Star was praised for being a good girl too, but *I* was the one who started the bed sharing, so I’m the better good one, right? Hee hee!

So ok, how about everyone comes over to our house for a huge party! Whooo!! All the usual goodies are here, hams, chickens, turkeys, fishies even though I can’t have them, and drinks galore! We got milk, valerian root beer, ‘vine tea, and nip brandy!

There’ll be dancin’ and catterwallin’ til the cows come home! See you all soon, Whoo hoo!!!!

Know what I would LOVE? I would love it if for my birthday, YOU got a present!
 Know how that works? Join the Summer FUNdraiser!
You make a donation to Winnie's Wish, the place that saved, rescued, tamed, and adopted me out to my mommy! And my mommy will send you four great nippy, or 'viney, toys! Cool huh?
Another thing that would be great is if we could find great homes for the current Winnie's Wish kitties so they can have great homes like I do! Spread the word, share it them everywhere please! You'll find them on the sidebar of the Daily Dose blog!
Obligatory Leo kitten pictures:

My Butterfly's Back And You're Gonna Be In Trouble

Hey la, day la, my butterfly's back!

Yes, that's what Star is singing! I mentioned that she's been SUCH a clinging vine to me lately. It might have been partly because as I also mentioned she hadn't been feeling the best with her allergy rash acting up. But apparently a big part of it was... I stole her butterfly blanket to soften the bench I use when I sew. It was NOT in the place she wanted it and not folded up to be extra soft and not resting on top of a few pillows and not near an open window. That's a lot of 'not's for a princess to put up with!

I learned my lesson, I put it back.

Can you believe the dirty nerve of some people?

No, I'm not flipping a claw. If I weren't a lady, I might..

Can you believe that my mom not only stole my butterfly blanket, but she kept sitting on it!

*THHPPPP* That's what I have to say about that!

Now that I got it back, I'm not letting it go again. Ever.

Now if you'll excuse me. I've been missing my butterfly naps.


Well now, I'm sure she won't mind if I borrow her butterfly blanket again if I have some more Winnie's Wish FUNdraiser Toys to make! I promise to give it back when I'm done this time!
So please, feel free to join the FUNdraiser and get your very own set of fun toys for your kitties!
The rescued kitties of Winnie's Wish will be so glad of the help!

Please be sure to stop back tomorrow as it's a BIG day for our baby boy Leo!!

Sunny Boy

We've had some nice bright days that have been cool enough for the door and windows to be open.
Leo loves this of course!

Oo! There's a birdie!

Look how sparkly his fur is in the sunshine!
Squirrel! Oh boy oh boy!

We hope you all have a bright sunny weekend and lots of sun puddles to sit in!


Winnie's Wish needs you! The cathouse is full, adoptions are needed more than anything! Please consider adding to your furry family. And if you can't, please share and spread the word because you never know who might be ready for a great kitty!

You can also help by joining the Summer FUNdraiser and getting your kitties some fun toys!

Track Addendum

Star has been ducking the camera lately.. little brat-lette.. I tried to get more pictures of her with the track ball thingie, but she stops the minute the camera comes out. These two, at least she stayed on it instead of running up to me for snuggles!

Who batted the ball? Leo, did you bat the ball? I don't know nothing about batting the ball..

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Just try and prove otherwise. heh heh

Leo likes to run up to the track, whap the ball a couple times fast then dart off almost before you can even see him!
Here he's left an offering to his new favorite toy. (Of course, all toys are his favorites..)

Star hasn't been feeling her best lately. The weather has been up and down, air conditioner on and off, and I think that bothers her. It's probably why she's been so clingy. I can hardly sit down and she's immediately looking to sit on me. Her seasonal rash flared again so she's getting her coconut oil at least once a day. If she doesn't feel better soon, she might have to go see the dreaded vet, yikes!


Do your kitties need a new favorite toy? What if you could get them one and help rescued kitties at the same time?
Well you can! Just make a donation to Winnie's Wish and your kitties will get FOUR catnip or silvervine stuffed toys in our Summer FUNdraiser! Have a peek, I'm willing to bet your kitties would really like the toys!

Track Attack

Will Leo give that ball a whack? Will he learn the joys of track play? Or will he snuffle the nip and call it a day? Let's look in on our last day of... The Saga of the Track Ball!

So let me get this straight. I'm supposed to play with that ball? Even though it's trapped in there?

Ok, let me give it a shot...

Got it! Whoo hoo! It lights up! And look at it spin!

Hey tracky ball, where did you go? I swear I just had you..

Ooo this is great for the claws! I'm gonna test these out on mommy later.. she don't mind! much

Oooo and the nippy smell.. it's.. awesome!

Alright alright! I like the ball too! Come back here  you fun flashy thingie you!

Yay! Someone played with it! Yes, he really did! You never saw two happier humans when he started spinning that thing all by himself!

In case you think the picture order was manipulated to make the story, let me assure you that these were all posted in the order taken. Yes, he does get on, get off, get on, get off, lay here, sit there. He's got restless kitty syndrome! hee hee!


Want to make a bunch of kitties happy? Make sure you get in on the Summer FUNdraiser! The donations go to help the sweet kitties of Winnie's Wish! And your kitties will be happy with the toys you get as a thank you!
That's a lot of kitties you can make happy! AND if you share the Summer FUNdraiser you might even make MORE kitties happy!! Double AND! If you share the Summer FUNdraiser AND the Winnie's Wish adoptable kitties and a kitty gets adopted that MEGA HAPPINESS!
