Do All Cats Like Nip Toys?

As you likely know by now, Mom L, my typist, is off gallivanting in Atlanta at the combined conferences for the Cat Writers Association and Bark World.  As you know, this has troubled me greatly.(hover over photo to view captions)

But…I managed to find this tell tail tale short video of The Kid Sage which proves yet again…cats are mostly into their nip toys for immediate gratification…after that…the motto goes something like this…

“When a toy has been tested, bunny kicked, covered in cat spit and guarded from any other cat in the household…said toy is now to be avoided at all costs”…so sayeth Ceiling Cat.

Such is the fate of this ‘at first glance’ kickable, spitable nip toy gifted to me and The Kid Sage by our fave DVM, Dr Josie, now a retired certifiable Cat Lady…heh…heh…and that nip sock is also “now retired”…na’ mean???

    We bet of Mom L puts that in a sealed ziploc with some fresh nip, you will one again find it quite lickable and kickable. It works for us! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    Pooh loves nip but she is one of the very few cats we have had over the years that did. She don’t play with toys much though, she just likes the nip. Her fav thing to do is run through the house and watch bird TV, she has never tired of that. We hope your mom has having a great time. Hugs and nose kisses.

    We go through stages with our cat toys. We go with the saying – “Absence makes the heart grow fonder.” The longer we go without playing with a toy, the more pawesome it will be when we find it later!!!

  4. I often forget about a toy for ages and then re-dsicover them. That’s the best:-)

  5. The only nip toy I really like is my tickle pickle.

    We both like catnip, but we got a snake from our German furriends Fellindianer which was filled with another nip : I (Zorro) don’t react a lot, but it drives Pixie totally crazy ! Purrs

  17. I think my Mom is very disappointed that I don’t react to the nip…..she’s tried every kind of nip there is…….silvervine powder was something I DID react to though!! Love the video……sending hugs to both of you girls for Halloween!


  18. I hope your mom has a good time. She’ll spoil you when she gets back, Savvy!

  19. Efurryone has different tastes! Whee don’t often get bored of toys until whee have destroyed them!


  20. I know of a late cat who did not pay attention to any artificial cat toy, nip or not. Some cats just do not dig nip.
    My two prefer the hard stuff: VALERIAN …

  21. I dunno bout dat, I never get tired of my toys.

  22. awww such an adorable video!

I can’t grow it as she eats it rolls on it digs it up flicks it …try some on Sage…maybe it’s a panfur thing 🙂 loves Miss Bev xxx

  24. I don’t think I’ve lived long enough to get bored of any toys yet, catnip or not!
