Nip Time!

AYLA:  So there I was, about to go politely bite off 1 Nip leaf for my afternoon pleasure, when Iza popped up from behind it and said it was hers!  Well, its OURS...  But she said she wanned ta play wif it fer a while.  As a "big" little sister, she can be real annoyin sometimes.  I wish she wasnt bigger than me...

So she started whappin at the poor plant.  She normally doesnt even LIKE Nip, but she broke a few of the leafs off...
That made her act a little funny.  She rolled around an pawed at the leafs for a while...
Thankfully, she got real innerested in one of her mousies and ran away wif it.  Then I got to enjoy SEVERAL leafs cuz she had broken them off an they woulda gone ta waste.  Cant have THAT happenin...

We go for weeks totally ignoring our nip plant and then we all decide we wants it at the same time. All except for the big furry thing, can you believe Fenris doesn't care for nip?

Nothing better than a good NipFest, unless it is a great NipFest!!!

William said...

So maybe she was helping you out by getting the leaves off for you!

No don't let some nip leaves go to waste.

See, everything turned out OK and instead of one leaf, you got lots of leafs!

It's a good thing she took off with the mousie so you could have that nip plant all for yourself!!

We liked that story! It's funny, The Baby goes out for a few minutes every morning with Daddy, and she ignores the nip patch. But when Daddy brings it in and tears it up, she goes bonkers!

Yeah, the Nip leafs need ta be ripped or crushed ta release the Goodness, and it takes us a while ta learn that.

Show Baby the leaf-rippin an she may catch on...

Fresh nip can be a dangerous thing!

Hi Ayla! This is Virgil posting alone, because I had to say that I can totally sympathize because even though I am older, Barney is bigger than me, and he is kinda the same way as Iza is. But at least in the end you got a few extra nip leaves - that is one thing the big little siblings are for!

Ayla, don't you know that Iza will want anything you have?? It's in the kitty code book!

At least she only got a few leaves before she took off & left you with it - that plant looks positively DELICIOUS!!

Have a happy day!!
