The Vine is Fine

As I was making up some beddies for the Cozy Kitty FUNdraiser, I realized something. I don't think I'd ever introduced the girls to silvervine. I was getting it out to put it on one of the beds when that thought occurred to me.

Leo, who must have a great memory, heard the sound of the envelope I keep it in being opened and suddenly he appeared from out of nowhere! There was no doubt that he knew what he was after. He was already hyper, paws on the table, huge eyes looking all over for the magical powder.

He also knows the delivery system I have used to give him the 'vine. When he saw the plastic bag full of squares of fleece, he started dancing even more. You could almost hear him singing "The vine is here! The vine is here!" as he waited impatiently for me to sprinkle fresh silvervine onto his cloth.

The girls seemed to get the idea that something was up, but they didn't see any cans of stinky goodness so they weren't impressed. Glitter barely looked up.

Leo took off with his, so I gave the next one to Cashmere who was waiting to see what the big deal was. I think you'll see in the following pictures that she found out that the big deal is big indeed!

Good heavens! Wha.. What is this intoxicating scent??

Cashmere: Hey Leo! This stuff is awesome!
Leo: Preachin' to the choir, sister!

I think.. I think I need to lay on top of this and rub it all into my furs..

Ooo I'm getting a little woozy.. I don't think my eyes and ears are going in the same directions any more.. No one can tell, right?

I want to absorb this red thingie right through my skin!

Or maybe through my nose.. I need another whiff..

WeeeeeEEEEEE!!!! Oh yeah, good stuff!

Weee heee hee! Yeah! Wait.. what was that? It's a blue one! Oh, there's nothing there, heh.. Glitter, I can't believe you're missing out on this!

Glitter: Fine.. I'll check it out. What's the big deal? This cane is more interesting..
Leo: Are you out of your mind? Wait, let me sniff, maybe I can see if your mind left..
Glitter: Uh..
Leo: Hee hee hee, I think it's gone! Long gone!
Glitter: Yeah, SOMEthing is gone, but it ain't MY mind..

Leo: Oh lookie! A fresh one! *sniff sniff snort lick*
Glitter: Seriously? Is this some kind of joke? 'Cause I don't get it.
Leo: That's ok, more for me then! Weeeee!

I love this picture of Leo.. I don't know why other than it makes me say: Long cat is LONG!
I must have more.. Can I make a nest out of all of these little cloths and nap on it?
Tomorrow I'm going to give you a list of things the Cozy Kitty FUNdraiser is used for. I find it interesting an I think it helps people visualize exactly how they are helping. So please tune in tomorrow for that! Thank you!
Winnie's Wish needs adoptions! As I'm really late (fell asleep before finishing this post last night) I'm not going to do Opt to Adopt Blog Hop, but please please go to the Daily Dose blog and look at the adorable kitties on the sidebar and see if you can help at least one of them get a home! Thank you!!

My Angel simply lurvs silvervine; Chucky is 'meh'. I haven't tried any on my friendly ferals; Sweetie enjoys the nip, but Patty ignores it. Weird!

Memories of Eric and Flynn said...

Cashmere is really enjoying that vine. I love it too.

Clooney said...

Oh Leo, that song and dance of yours must be awesome, you are so cute! Yay for discovering the vine, Cashmere!

Summer said...

So Glitter wasn't into it? I can tell you, EVERY kitty here knows ALL about silvervine!

The Island Cats said...

Don't over do it on the vine or else we'll need to do an intervention!

The Swiss Cats said...
