Silvervine And Kittens

I gave Merlene a silvervine leaf and was quite surprised to see her reaction to it.

Whoa!  What's that?
Sniff sniff sniff
Wheeeee!!!
Nom nom nom
Hee hee haa haaa....this is making me all giddy!
Bat bat bat
Thud!
OMC.  This is some stuff!
Gah!  Silvervine overload!
Merlene's Daddy picked her up on Tuesday evening to take her home.  We sure miss that little bundle of energy running all over the house but we are happy she's a much loved member of her family now.

You take care now, you hear, little girl?  I'm sure going to miss you and I hope you remember me when you come for boarding!

What a doll she is! :-)

That silvervine is new to us, we've only recently seen a few posts about it. Looks like it's far more potent than even nip!

The Monkeys said...

Oh, she really is an adorable little fluffball!

We've never heard of Silverine, but it looks mighty tasty!

Merlene - you are a girl with refined taste - we love silvervine leaves and can spend many a happy hour being totally silly and we also have a beautiful nippy pillow that we so enjoy especially if mum stores it in a bag with powdered silvervine to make it smell even more potent and delicious. Do try that too - we're sure you'll love it.

Oh I just can't stand it. She is SO adorably cute and that TAIL! I am just in love with her and Boomie. Put them in an envelope and mail them here and I'll treat them like the royalty they are.

Oh we are so happy for Merlene. WE have followed her adventures with you and are so glad she has come from being a 3 week old helpless kitten with little chance of making it, then you came into the picture and now look.

She is happy, healthy, playful and loved.

So very wonderful.

Oh I bet you are going to miss that Merlene. She is sooooo cute. We are going to have to try some silvervine leaves. It looks better than nip.
We hope Merlene comes back often to visit. Boomerang, you are too cute hugging that Merlene. Take care.

wish Boomie was part of the decor here at the house. Only getting a new wall unit for the TV etc. But he would make THE best of additions.

unikorna said...

What a cheerful house you live in! All my furbabies grew up and now everyone in my house is serious, so I do miss these amazing playful battles :). Kisses.

Father Tom said...

What a little sweetheart. We're enjoying watching Mitty play with little leaves, too. (the plant's not too happy, 'cause he goes looking for more)

Much happiness in your new home, Merlene!
