Sophie and plants


A number of people, owned by cats, have mentioned their surprise that Sophie doesn't bother my house plants .. well .. almost .. she seems to have aquired a taste for fake ones ? Go figure .. she is a cat, so there is no logical reason she feels she has to explain this to me .. and .. of course she only does this to get attention .. Actually , I think we are both having "one of those days" ...

Just how much catnip did she have before getting the munchies?

Cinj said...

Mine too. They don't care if plants are fake or real, they'll eat whatever is plant type materials!

Cinji .. that is the only one Sophie will pretend to bite on .. for attention .. I am lucky she doesn't make her way to any others .. phew

Wiseacre .. love the new YOU ? haha
Funny thing she didn't get catnip that day .. just her mood de jour ?

Cinj said...

Mine actually bite through. I had several that used to have twig type things in the arrangements and the silly critters bit them all off. I guess that's what I get for not keeping them out of reach!

Cinj .. I had candle wreaths ? with twigs and things .. my other cats did have a go with them .. but so far Sophie just does it to tease me !

When I get a new pet??? I'm going to post cute pics too and make ya'll hear about it. I'm so jealous. I would get a cat in a minute if it weren't for my allergies. I love that cats have an attitude. We miss our dog like crazy.

Hi Anna .. you must be exhausted with how busy your life is right now .. thanks for dropping by !
I'm sorry you have bad allergies to pets .. and yes, having a cat with attitude is something I like too .. a lot of smarts and personality .. haha

hello, I like your blog. Found it via "Notes from a Cottage Garden". It will be interesting to see your entries when the gardening season is upon us again. Apparently your garden helper is testing the fake plants? :-) Our cat Stella (who owns a blog as well) is happy that she can be outdoors again and has been licking the catnip plant which is starting to grow. Take care, Andrea from Germany

Hi Andrea
I just had a quick peek at your blog and it is lovely. It seems Stella and Sophie both had their "greens" for the day with the cat nip .. haha
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again !

It's okay Joy. They are cats and must mess with stuff. Tisha at the tassels off of my pretty pillows.
