Smelly Socks, Anyone?

I bought this for Hubby to help him sleep. As soon as he opened the bottle, he gagged (for those who do not know what it smells like, imagine smelling the stinkiest pair of socks ever). He did eat a couple of the capsules, but it didn't work so to spare him the agony of having to swallow more capsules, I asked Katnip Lounge's Mommy if it was okay to give it to the kitties instead.  :)
It was a different story with them, though. They couldn't believe the lovely aroma that came from the bottle! Well, almost all of them
Meow-Me : I can't wait for you, Mommy. I'm going to get a capsule out now
I opened a capsule and sprinkled it on an old t-shirt
Felix : Oh oh...my head feels kinda funny
Felix : I'll bunnykick the stink out of this t-shirt
Felix : Whooops! What's going on with me?
Tutu : What's up with you? You've been acting really wierd
Felix : Help! I can't get back on my paws!
Tutu : Okay, let me help. I'll grab your paws and you try to pull yourself up, okay?
Felix : My head! My head! It's about to explode! I dare not open my eyes!
Tutu : Stick to your mousie toys, Felix. Valerian Root ain't for little boys!
Meow-Me : MY turn now!
Felix was the one most turned on by the Valerian Root. Meow-Me and Tutu as well. Coco and Boomer took one whiff and ran out to the catio. LOL!

BOOMER! You are a good boy! MY boy! I have a new hidey place for us. Hop over and I'll meow you to where it is. It's in Mom's room. Tutu..how sweet of you to help Felix. That's a good good girl!

Oh and Tutu, I see you are flirting with King Spitty! He will be dazzled by your shiny coated Tortie beauty. You may be a good influence on him but I will warn you, he is looking for a European Country to conquer. You might be in for some rough sailing.

My mom sprinkles my silvervine on a wash cloth and puts it on the floor for me. I roll with it, rub it all over and enjoy myself for at least five minutes. I wonder if my Plague Rat has Valerian? It smells awful. I don't like it too much. XXOO

Hannah and Lucy said...

It looks as though a fun time was had by everycat.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Marg said...

Felix you are a riot. We sure are glad TuTu was there to help you get up but hopefully you didn't fall back down. We have never tried that Valarian root.
By the way, tell you silly Mom that the donkeys don't come in the house here. They would make too big of a mess.LOL. Take care.

My peeps knows peeps that swear by the tea getting them to sleep. Not sure about the stinky pinky capsules but I'd give it a go.
Best wishes Molly

Finn said...

~*Connie*~ said...

well as long as a good time was had by all and there was no actual head exploding (giggle)

Katnip Lounge said...

Well thank COD that Felix's branes stayed IN! Or you might have been overrun with Cat Zombies...ha ha ha!

We are so happy it worked! Some of us could care less about The Root, too.

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Oh my gosh! That looks wilder than catnip! They look crazed for it!

By the way, if you're looking for natural ways to help get to sleep, try a tiny dab of lavender oil under the nose or on the pillow. I've used it when I've gone through bouts of insomnia and it relaxes me enough to sleep. Melatonin works too, but I break 3mg tablets in half.

BeadedTail said...

That cracked us up! We've tried that stuff before so we know exactly what Felix was feeling!

ABBY said...

Heheheheehee now that looks like a lot of fun. Mom went and got us some just to try and none of us were very affected by it. She was disappointed.
But now nip....now that's a different story.

Maggie M said...

Wow, we think you all had a very good time with that valerian root. We have never had any so we don't know if we would like it or not. Hugs and nose kisses

Willow said...

Well you know the old saying making kitty nip out of stinky socks. This was a good valerian fest especially for Felix

The Island Cats said...

Whoa! That must be some good stuff!!!

Oui Oui said...

We knew that wild child Tutu would be in the middle of it! Our cats do like stinky socks. Maybe we should try Valerian root.

Prancer Pie said...

It was a great photo op! We've got to get sum of that stuff!

Mollie said...

Oh, that waz soooo funny..Fank you for the great Furiday laff xxooxx

unikorna said...

I had no idea about the Valerian roots that it ca help you sleep. If I may, you should try a massage before going to bed, it calms him and relaxes him, it always helps me. Smelly socks :))))) that's a fun comparison.

Cat said...

Such cute pictures :-) I know the stuff stinks like crazy but my boys love it too!!!

CATachresis said...

LOL Felix, you’re away with the fairies!! Pity it don’t do the same for the humans though!!

meowmeowmans said...

Well, at least it did not go to waste! It looks like it'll provide many. many hours of fun for your kitties! :)

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Mollie said...

Cute photos!!! Xoxo

The Cat From Hell said...

That is how me first discovered Valarian! Daddy boughts it to help him sleep and it didn't, and when he accidently dropped a capsule on the ground, Hissy Old Licorice snagged it so fast!
Kisses

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

I like catnip okay, Valerian is pretty cool, but the VINE is FINE, Kitties! The Human says the Valerian stinks to high heaven and she will barely let me have any. She cannot IMAGINE actually ingesting it!! Yuck yuck yuck!

Tutu, may I take this opportunity to say you are looking especially lovely today?

Gattina said...

Apparently the "human sleeping pills" have quiet another effect on cats hahaha !

Kjelle Bus said...

My dad too say´s it smells like VERY smelly sock´s :)
LOVE the pictures on Felix <3

Rykers Boyz n Allie said...

Valerian huh? Oh MOMMYYYYYYYY....>>@!!!!!!!

Father Tom said...

Isn't that funny--valerian root for humans supposed to help you sleep and with cats, it keeps us awake!!
Or, I guess it wakes up something in us :)

Mom Julie says she can't wait to try it with us.

Tom

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Nah, don't worry. I'm small but strong. I can handle the big brass ones just fine. They might clank a little though and interfere with my stalking of Moths and Other Flying Insects (OFI's). Still, it's worth it.

Gracie=^o.o^= said...

You really have a great time at your place for sure! This is when I really want a sibling. Thanks for your suggestion of going to the countryside. Great idea. Did you have a special place in mind like England or some place here in the states? Will let everyone know where we are going once the drawing takes place.

Roo said...

Valerian root? Who knew? Wonder if it's addictive ;P I like old socks. Maybe Mom could get me some! Must ask her to look into it ;)

Waggin at ya,
Roo

Maggie @ Shelter Cats said...

Huh. That sure looks like a fun party at your house.
Time to make a trip to the health food store...

I love how much interesting information we get along with nice pictures from our cat blogging buddies!

Repositório said...

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Hi Kids! Hope you guys are still having fun over there with your catio and your valerian. Life is good, eh?

Guess what Tutu? The Human met a kitten yesterday younge rthan you and Madie Mitten Kitten. We'll have some pix tomorrow!

Katie and Glogirly said...

WOW! That stuff looks like magic! So since your dad thought it smelled like smelly socks, and since we don't have any Valerian...do you think I can get the same high off of Gloman's socks? Glogirly's giving me the "look" now.
: ) Katie

yuki and rocket said...
