Intruder cat squashed my catnip plant

This morning Mom took me out to enjoy the backyard. This photo is from last week but I repeated the investigation of my catnip plant. It was all squashed down and smelled of intruder kitty.

Later in the afternoon, the culprit made himself known!

This kitty has been in my yard many times before and we know he likes the nip. But I think it was extremely rude of him to squash my plant.

To be honest, I’m not very interested in catnip. Mom grows it because she likes it and so do the intruder cats.  He was in it for a good two minutes before Mom made him go away. Hopefully it will bounce back from his brutish rubbing.

    Oh, that is rude! We have intruders too, but at least they usually don’t squash my nip garden.

    With that round head, that looks like an intact boy. He should be tutored! We have a couple in our neighborhood that my human is working on.

      I didn’t know a round head means he didn’t “have his plums plucked”. I’ll have to try to get a better view of his (or her) backside and see if there are any obvious boy bits.

  2. We agree that it was rude of hin to squash the catnip.
    WE must admit that we would too as we love catnip 🙂

  3. He does seem to be enjoying it though 🙂

  4. Grace says:

    He is handsome tho!

  5. Brian says:

    Maybe the smashed nip has a better aroma!

    I have to plant my catnip in a hanging basket – if I plant it in the ground it gets flattened by my outdoor cats, as well as the Visitors !

  7. That’s rude ! But it looks like he enjoyed it a lot ! Purrs

  8. Too bad. I have a terrible time trying to grow nip outside.

    Oh well, he was having fun, and at least you won’t miss it, Raven (it’s probably a tough plant too though and will bounce back). I am growing (or trying to) some catnip outdoors too, I think I read anything in the mint family can help keep bugs away. We’re all for that!

  10. How rude! It’s a good thing you don’t care about nip, Raven, otherwise introoder cat would be in trouble!

  11. Johnny says:

    INTRUDERS NOT WELCOME!! But I guess at least someone is enjoying the catnip 😉

    You need a security system.

  13. Dat musta been some powerful nip!

  14. Gosh, does this intruder kitty have a home or is it a stray?

    • Raven says:

      We see him/her around frequently but he’s wary of people so I suspect he’s one of the neighborhood strays.

  15. We have catnip along the fence. It is organic. I give it fresh in the Summer, and sun dry it and jar it for Winter. But there is ONE plant that the strays/ferals always find. It gets pretty beat up.

  16. Oh, a catnip caper! Caught the culprit red-pawed! So rude.
