Cricket Is Watching You

Hello. It's me Cricket, taking over again. Momma says I should let Billie and Cody blog too, but they are always napping and personally I don't think they are smart enough. Do you see those tiny little green things in the dirt? It's baby Nip! Momma planted the seeds late last week and they are sprouting already. She put them by the West window because the sun lingers there longer in the afternoon now. She is very in tune with the changes of the seasons. I think that is rather catlike of her. Now, I like to imbibe in the Nip once in a while, but I am not a big fat Nip Head like Billie and Cody! Those two are shameful. Momma better hide that nip when it gets bigger, because those two will graze like cows and there will be nothing left. I will just have to sit here on my sofa perch and stand guard over it. and, don't think I won't "tattle tail" on those two if I catch them. I am a very good watch cat by the way. Remember that spider I alerted Momma to? Well, this morning I saw the neighbor's giant dog in our yard! My pupils dilated and my fur on my back stood up. I ran to the windows and crouched low to keep an eye on her. Momma assured me that we were safe, but I watched her until she left. I swear, my work is never done. I hardly have time to be naughty any more! I haven't chased Billie out of the litter box in days and I only scratched the furniture twice this week. I'm losing my edge. Don't worry though, I'll find something naughty to do. I can't help it, it's in my nature! Now, I'm off to nap and scheme... Remember, do something naughty, it's fun!

Good job, Cricket! Keep up the good work!

Hi Cricket! I like to do that crouching-low thing, too. I think it is a very good position for hunting.

I love dried-up catnip, but for some reason, I do not enjoy it fresh. I do not know why.

Hi Cricket - keep up the good watching!
And real live nip is fun too ~ how cool that you get to watch it grow!

Hello Cricket! You are very good to keep an eye on the nip.
Caesar was a nip head and he would eat any seedlings growing in the house... nip or flowers. He would pull the green things out and toss them on the floor!

You are a great helper!

Mmm I LOVE the nip! I just tried some for the first time last night and went crazy!

I am sorry that a big woofie was invading your area. Just keep an eye out, crouch down low, and give a hissy if you have to!

You must have been reading my mind cricket! Last night I was VERY naughty! Mommy was on her way to bed about 4:30 when I barfed all over the kitchen carpet. For some reason mommy was not amused:) Carpet cleaners, fumes, chemicals, scrapers, papertowels and a blue streak had to be used for the hazmat operation. It is hard to be a good kitty somedays and nights. Later I sneaked in to her bed to sleep with her so she knew I forgave her.
Mommy said that she still thinks about your old wavy window glass...and al the eyes that have looked through it over the years. She always thinks in terms like that.
Off to nap now...happy day to you all
