Another long overdue meme: The catnip meme

My mate Yoggie in Sweden tagged me for this meme last week. I have to list five things that happen to me when I'm on the 'nip. It's a bit hard to tell how many things happen to me when I'm nipped out, so I'll just list everything I can think of and hope that it's somewhere near five.

Even though I'm getting to be a middle-aged cat (I'm eight early next year!), I've only been introduced to the nip in the last year or so. This is my current source of nip:

This mousie was one of the presents that my Secret Paw, Gypsy, bought for me. He's a nip mouse! And this is what happens to me when I play with him:
I immediately become very interested in grooming him. This goes on for quite some time, because he tastes great.

Then we have a bit of a roll around together. Sometimes I have to stop to lick his furs some more.
That's when things start getting a little spacey. I roll around on my back, doing lots of full monties and half monties and side monties and... just... whatever...

After that, I slow down. Waaay down. I get the stares and my head spins. That's when I know it's time to stop.

Nip doesn't make me extra friendly... just extra playful and then extra dizzy. But it doesn't last for long. Then I'm back to normal old Pabs again.

Hey, don't forget that my AWESOME Footy Finals Fever competition is still open. And guess what? Places in the top eight are still up for grabs! There's some great prizes on offer, as well as the chance to learn a bit about my favourite sport... Aussie Rules Football! Entries close this Sunday, 2 September, midnight PDT. Give it a go!

Cheers,
--Pabs

Catnip is the greatest invention, ever! It is very funny when your head spins, right? I am surprised that you did not have any catnip sooner.

It looks like you have a lot of fun with the nip mousie. Do you get the munchies later?

Pablo, I would love to try some catnip with you. It's kind of fun when the room spins.

You show a remarkable level of restraint, Pabs. It's great that you know when to stop.

Hey that sounds like what happens with me and 'nip. It's good stuff, isn't it!

I knew you were niptastic Pablo. And well done for getting the humans back for trying to feed you small portions. You need one of those catcams so they can see what you get up to when you're out and about at midnight. FAZ

Cute pics, Pablo!

You can really tell
that you're all nipped
out in that last photo-
you've got a sneaky look
on your face, as if the
nip is giving you all
sort of sneaky ideas!
It's good you know when
to stop, or there's no
telling what might
happen!
