Savannah's Paw Tracks

Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

Monday Meowsie News…The Nip and Me?


What an exciting event around “Casa Savannah”..I received my first ever request from a pet product company to review a product!  Of course I said YES immediately…I could see piles of free peacock fev-vers coming to me for my special review….SWEET!


And finally the day came when my first product to review for a pet product company arrived.  I had Mom rip it open…and we both just stared…in dismay…can you guess what they sent to “ME“???…and of course how could they ever know…not their fault…we should have warned them…you all know by now what product they sent to, of all cats, Savannah….


The Natural Pet Company  was so  kind to provide me, Savannah, with an extra large bag of their special natural catnip…the nip was provided free of charge, I was allowed to keep all unused nip and I was not offered any compensation whatsoever for giving my completely honest review of this product. Bless their hearts, I just could not be the only cat to review their product so I sent Mom over to my former residence, Kitty Corner.

It was the only fair thing to do, knowing as you all do that…ahem…ahhhhh…yeah, well…I just do not do ‘nip’…*sigh*

Kitty Corner has some youngsters right now, but adults and even seniors too…Mom and Dad spread some piles around for them to sample…I think it was a huge SUCCESS…what do you think?

If that video doesn’t convince you…have a look through this slideshow and see some pawsome cats loving this nip…and remember…each and every one of these kitties needs a forever home…just sayin…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There were at least 12 cats who dug into that nip…I’d say that was 48 PAWS UP for The Natural Pet Company catnip!!

But it didn’t seem enough…so I sent Mom over to my former vet, Dr Thompson…she provides MREs (mice ready to eat) for her Kitty Platoon...six adult cats…very discriminating tastes…this would be a good trial for this special nip for sure…

First, Special Forces trained Toby, 14  years old, was given a pile to sample…



He couldn’t get enough..he would not allow that tabby cat next to him to even get a sniff!  Next up…Captain Fokker…a tabby senior officer and leader of the Platoon…he is 12 years old…

Ok, time to try out the rest of the Platoon…2nd Lt. J V (gray tabby), Specialist Carl Bob (orange tabby), Lt. Smokey (gray tabby)…*they could seriously start their own Tabby Cat Club!*…(Sargent Hum Vee was unavailable as he was away on assignment) Click to bigify

The Kitty Platoon gives that catnip 20 PAW UPS…this catnip is really something!!

Now, the final test…Mom filled my most favorite toy, my very first nip toy she ever bought for me when Dad and Mom brought me to their home as a ‘foster’ adult rescue cat.  Mr Scruffy Schmousie is a much loved, somewhat tattered, catnip toy that seldom ever has any nip in him…it doesn’t matter to me…at least we thought that was true…watch the video and see if you think having Mr Scruffy stuffed to busting with The Natural Pet Company Special Catnip had any affect on me…(be sure to watch until at least second 25…just a suggestion)

Wooooeeeee!!! That catnip has some real kick to it!! Mom had to put Mr Scruffy’s tummy back in him ‘cuz I got so carried away I pulled it trying to get to that yummy nip!

This CATNIP  is the very first ever, and I mean EVER!…catnip to receive my, Savannah’s, FOUR PAWS UP approval!! I will never be without it again and all my nip toys will be filled with…*looks over shoulder to Mom*….Right?

So, my product review of their catnip ended with 72 PAWS UP!!!

Today is a really special day for a great special pal of mine…my adventure buddy and the best cat innovator and inventor I ever met and he loves time traveling just like me…my pal Nerissa posted his 200th post Sunday…purrlease hop over and give him a big congratulations!

Hope you enjoyed my first product review…and let me just give a little reminder…Ray Charles and Rachel are getting bigger every week…they need a furrever home ASAP…please don’t forget these two black panthers…remember, Ray Charles may have limited sight, but his face is precious and he plays and acts all crazy like any other 9 month old kitty.

Paw Pats, Savannah

peeEss...I won’t be around very much for visits as Mom is off until this coming weekend…visits will be limited ‘cuz she won’t have connectivity for at least 3 days of her time away…purrrrs for your understanding

    Great review of the nip Savy. I’m like you, I’m not a big lover of the nip unless it’s very fresh and maybe even a certain kind. Maybe it’s the same with you. Store bought nip just doesn’t do anything for me.

  4. You went above and beyond the call of duty I think.

  5. How awesome you get to preview products! 😀 Hope those kitties find a forever home. They looked like they had lots of fun.

  6. That was very thoughtful of you to let all those kitties indulge in that nip. I am glad that the nip worked it’s magic on you. You are now officially a nip head too.

  7. Mags Corner on said:

    Great news sweet Savannah, we can tell you really had a lot of fun with that nip. Glad your mom was able to get Scruffy’s tummy back in place, you did give him a pretty good working over. lol Keep enjoying the nip sweetie. Hugs and nose kisses

  8. Its nice that you found some nip that you like,Savvy now you’re not missing out on it,xx Speedy

  9. Bootiful toy!

    We Purrime Ministerettes no really caring for da nip. But fishie smell is always bestest.

  10. HAH! I’m not too fond of the nip either. I like the big cat in the corner who looked too zonked to move and the one rubbing his chin over and over on the rug. OK, I just watched the video of you. I thought you didn’t like da nip?? You walked away at the end like I do; like nothing ever happened and you didn’t lose your dignity to the nip. (Vine in my case.) Concats on the review. I never get anything to review. Am I doing something wrong??

    • First BFGF, you can never do anything wrong…i think single kitty homes don’t get asked very much and this was my very first ever. Chewy dot com gave me $50 last Dec to spend on their site and do a review of my online shopping experience…I did a nice review…and they never even thanked me. At least The Natural Pet Company actually read my review AND watched the videos and sent me a nice email of appreciation. I don’t expect to get any more from anyone else. Now, by the big cat in the corner who looked zonk…if you mean the tuxie against the door, that nip experience let Mom see that her leg was hurt and she went to the vet right away. She sprained her paw. She is very shy…Many of those kitties have been adopted praise Ceiling Cat…paw hugs, Savvy

  11. four paws up to your performance under the influence of nip 🙂

  12. Savvy, if that nip got your attention, it must be good stuff! And it was really nice of you to share it with the shelter kitties too. Great review!!

  13. So fun! I’m going to go out on a limb and say you like it. You REALLY like it!

    Love and licks,

  14. Brillant! Savvy we got a hold of a bag of this high powered nip too and we have to say it is GOOD! we all love it too so add all of our paws in there too.

    savvy…way awesum mewvies N glad ya final lee finded a nip ya like; sum times it IZ all a bout brand, brand, brand !!!!! hope yur mom N dad iz havin a grate time on vacayshunz !!

  16. Savannah, I reread your post and clicked on the NIP link, which took me to the Amazon site that sells the nip. (I bookmarked it for my housekeeper — I don’t care for nip either, but if you like it, I’m willing to try it.) Anyhow, on the Amazon site I scrolled down all the way and came to the section that says that people who bought the nip also bought these other things: and the first “other thing” was a barbecue brush! WHAT? The second one is a “cocktail muddler” — maybe something to do with roosters? Sounds like a serious party: nip, barbecue, and rooster drinks. Your friend Dinah, RWB (reader without blog.)

  17. Are you sure those sorts of parties are legal in California? Your friend Dinah RWB (reader without blog.)

    Nothing like a good bit of strong nip to get all the kitties going 🙂 Have a great week xx00xx

  19. Wow, that is impressive that the nip won you over – and how awesome that the other kitties got to try it out too!

  20. So Savvy, you have finally joined the world of nip heads. We were going to suggest you send that nip to us, but then you were so nice to start handing it out to other kitties…and now the you like it, no request will be made.

    We do have a little bone to pick with you. We were more than a little envious when we saw your medallion that you said Spitty had given you for being a Viceroy. Well, you lied to us, and we thought we were friends. When we went to Spitty and asked for our medallions, he said you made that story up and nobody had received anything but the badge he posted. Did you try to trick us? He was rather grumpy with us for asking for something. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • *paws cover eyes with embarrassment*. Sigh….I tried it use the badge Spitty put up…but I couldn’t take it cuz it had so many spikey things…so Mom made won kinda like it…I did not really lie to you and you are my friends, Mauricio, Misty May, Fiona, Astrid, Calista Jo, Lisbeth, Lily Olivia, and Giuletta…purrlease forgive me, your furriend Savvy. Ps I will give you the rest of the nip of that will help make up

  21. So many cuuuwooooowoooote kittens! Woooooowoooooo!

  22. Yes ahem we did approve the nip for recreational purpose when not on patroll
    No one lost there head. We are rangers!!! Thanks sav for sharing
    Capt Fokker

  23. Me niether is much for Nip , maybe I should try this brand 🙂

  24. Way cool! But sorry you don’t use it. I don’t use it much, either, but Morticia just LOVES LOVES LOVES IT! She rolls in it & gets it ALL OVER her! MOL She’s very silly especially when she’s stoned! MOL!


  25. That was great! Like the Harlem shake for kitties. That nip must be magic… is it?
    Have a great monday Savannah!

  26. Well that’s such a great review Savvy…all those paws up for the Nip! I was mesmerised by the sweet kitty with the incredible striped tail!! and boy did you enjoy the experience or what!! hehehe have a great day and hugs from Fozziemum xx

  27. Katie Isabella on said:

    ad what a super idea to share it WHERE you did. ❤

  28. Katie Isabella on said:

    Oh Savvy! I love Nip and it looks like all the kitties you shared with do too. That sounds like good stuff.

  29. mistletoeandhitch on said:

    We’ll have to get our HuMom to order us some of this special Natural Pet Company nip. 4 paws up from you, Savannah, is quite a recommendation!

  30. That was a darn good NipFest sweet Savannah!!!

  31. What a great idea, to take the nip to the shelter. Looks like they all had a brilliant time with it. My three love the nip and each react differently with it but, as you well know, not all cats like it. At least this way, the shelter ones got to have a wonderful time

  32. Wow, Savvy, that catnip really worked on you! It’s not just powerful stuff, it’s magical!

  33. Wow Savvy……I usually don’t get into the nip as much as other cats do either but once in a while some comes my way that I truly think is magic – just like that nip was for you! Nice to know “we’ve still got it” huh?? It was very nice that you shared with all those kitties too – the videos are great!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  34. A brilliant review!! if only you would move to the UK I would ask you to review some of my cat food, but my pocket money will not stretch to sending it to you!! Hope mummy linda has a lovely time away!

  35. wooohooo concatulation on getting HIGHHHHH!

  36. Wowee, that looks like some good stuff you is enjoying there!

    Have a great Monday, and may it be full of catnip toys

    Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil

Waving paw...HI!...what'd 'cha think...??
