This week we find ourselves at the letter G. So, following the poetic theme we've been sticking with, who are we meeting today, and what is their occupation? Well, you're about to find out.
Gracie the Gardener
Hello and hi!
We are so glad that you stopped by.
What can we do for you today?
Perhaps you’d like a lovely bouquet?
We have beautiful flowers of every type and kind,
Thanks to Gracie the Gardener, our mastermind.
If it’s roses you seek,
Then do take a peek.
Gracie the Gardener prefers the orange and the red,
And has given them their very own flower bed.
But of course don’t forget the pink and the white,
For they are also such a beautiful sight.
Now, would you like some tulips, too?
We have purple, yellow, red, and blue.
Or is there something else altogether you prefer?
Gracie the Gardener can even offer you lovely larkspur.
If you thought the list ended there,
That is not the case, so do not despair.
Gracie the Gardener has planted lovelies with names of all sorts,
Even goodies like crocus and the delightful mugworts.
So please peruse the garden and take your pick,
And Gracie the Gardener will gather them for you quicker than quick.
As always, we've created a little doodle for Gracie the Gardener. And if you're wondering who the real inspiration for Gracie is, you'll find her here.
Let's be honest. This here human was just as excited as the felines, because the catnip mat fabric was nothing short of fantabulous. I work as a lab tech in a chemistry lab, and pawsome Ellen sent us a chemistry mat. This here nerd could hardly contain herself.
And neither could the kitties, when it came to the catnip goodness. Thimble wanted to show off just how much of a niphead she is. She went for video evidence, and though she did keep getting video-bombed by other kitties and a giant pup, she still wants to show off her niptastic skills. So, here's the evidence:
(Now this human is working on obtaining video evidence of elusive Eddy enjoying our new beloved Jackson Galaxy Space Station toy. She plays with it any time of day or night, but also does not like being caught doing so, but I am determined.)
Now, of course Thimble and all of the kitties want to enter their gratitude for Ellen's niptastic gifts in Brian's Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.
The kitties here are so thankful for such a niptastic time. We're all so thankful for furiends like Phoebe and Ellen, and all of you!
Happy Thursday to all of our furiends!
Our Tip of the Day:
If your kitty's favorite catnip toys start to lose their fresh nipness and therefore lose their appeal, there are easy ways to remedy this. For example, as we're sure most of you already know, you can grow your own catnip. It can be grown outdoors, and will typically come back each year, sometimes having multiplied. If gardening isn't your thing, though, you can also purchase catnip in stores or online, such as in the form of dried catnip. In either of these cases, whether you have your own catnip or have purchased some, and whether it's fresh or dried, you can place some in a baggie or other container and then seal your cat's toys inside with the nip. Let the toys marinate in the catnip for a while, and then your kitty's catnip toy will be like brand new. As another option, there is catnip spray available on the market. As long as you do this safely, you can spray your kitty's toys with this in order to replenish their catnip goodness. Your kitty will thank you for it!
