We are nipheads, and we can’t deny it.

Don’t criticize us if you’ve never tried it.

It’s good to roll in and sweet to eat.

Nip is by far our favorite treat.

If we are being completely honest,

Maybe we should join Nipheads Anonymous.

No, on second thought, definitely not.

Give us nip and make it a lot.

We are nipheads and darn proud of it!




Whenever Chris comes to the house, whether to clean or look after us when the humans go away, she brings us goodies. It may be treats, catnip, bonito flakes or any combination of the three. Today we got fresh and ground nip and treats. Jackpot!

This is what we did in the morning. Astrid demonstrates what we did during the afternoon. Mom says she was really out of it. She was sleeping on a big pile of toys and let Chris vacuum and clean all around her. She didn’t even blink. Astrid only changed positions after Mom started taking photos. But she never woke up. Good nip!




We love nip, and we love Chris. We wish she would come everyday.

Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

We grow organic catnip and it is the best way to go. I sun dry it and jar it for Winter. Very cute poem, my friend.
Is Astrid wearing a calming collar? It looks like the one that Chloe Jo wears as needed. She wears a regular collar now.

Awww! You guys are so cute rolling around in your nip! I think that there are a lot of kitties here that could join Nipheads Annonymous. My kitties definitely could! Somehow, I don’t think anyone would actually stop loving nip, though. 🙂 I say, keep enjoying the nip!

Happy Tuesday everyone. Sweet kiss tony love…. Ms Lisbeth

There’s nothing like a nip high! Sampy wishes he were curled up with Astrid for a catnip infused nap. He says she is looking so beautiful and sweet. We hope you all continue to enjoy the nip and treats!!! Sampy sends Astrid a kiss for every piece of catnip in the world, and we all send lots of love!
