“Fresh Catnip for Gus”

Description from Sarah aka iamhydrogen: It seems that quite a few people have lost a dear animal friend lately (including here on LB). It's been causing me to think of my late kitty Gus a little more than usual. He's been gone for almost two years, but I still miss him every day. Yesterday I was chopping mint, and I remembered how much he LOVED fresh catnip. The first time he ever got a whiff of the fresh leaves he almost tore my fingers off to get at it (and he only had a few teeth left by then!) It makes me smile to think of him - the sweetest, gentlest cat I've ever known - turning into a crazy little monster whenever he smelled the fresh nip! :)

    Love your pick, and your sentiments. Mine love the catnip too. Whenever I come in from the section of yard where I have it growing for them, even if I didn’t bring any with me, they won’t leave me alone. They smell it on my clothes, legs, from brushing against it. I actually have to go shower if I want any rest from them.

    That’s funny! Where we used to live had a lot of neighborhood cats. A few years ago I had planted a big herb garden from seedlings, including some catnip. The next day I went outside and one of the pots in the garden just had a bare stick coming up out of the soil. I was so confused about why I would have planted a dead stick…until I realized that in one night the neighborhood cats had decimated the entire catnip plant!!! I had to tell Gus that the local cats had stolen his stash…hee hee!

    ps – i attached one of my favorite pic of the Gusso.

    Awww….Gus was a beautiful cat. I haven’t tried fresh catnip for my cats. One of our cats, Puck, eats any plant or flower that we have out, so we don’t. Fresh catnip would be gone in an instant. Cats on catnip are hilarious. Puck is normally mild mannered and calm, but when he gets catnip…look out other cats and hands.
