Sludgy gunk... hmmm you have relatives visiting?? Nephew perhaps? Has to be a guy to hang with lefty and sherpa...


hahahahahaha. i thought nearly the same thing... "sludgy gunk, is that any relation to spinach gunk?"

and hey, lefty and sherpa are equal-opportunity hanger-outers. we'll hang out with you, man, woman, cat, or yak.

eh, well, my cat's hopefully not "over the rainbow bridge" and I admit that I'm generally a lurker here.... he's just missing, has been for a week now. Not sure what to do at this point.

It's poetry in motion
She turned her tender eyes to me
As deep as any ocean
As sweet as any harmony
Mmm - but she blinded me with science
"She blinded me with science!"
And failed me in biology

Treat for LittleOne - 03/11/10

a few days ago, i requested a sample of a certain species of Honeysuckle shrub ( Lonicera tartarica ) as a cat treat. today, i was about to let LittleOne out for a romp after an afternoon nap. so, as i was opening the door and letting him out, he was stretching and yawning and getting ready to go play. i opened the mailbox near my front door and saw the letter which arrived today. it just came in a small hand-written envelope, a small diagonal cut piece of wood, about a one by two inch section, of the shrub along with four folded up sheets of photocopied paper. apparently, this species of Honeysuckle shrub contains a chemical similar to the active ingredient in catnip (nepetalactone).

so, he's getting ready to go out, i open the letter, take out the half-inch thick section of the wood and show it to him. as it gets near his nose, he startes to get visibly agitated and has no interest in going outside now. when i put it up to his nose, he's suddenly wide awake, standing up on his back paws, and trying to take it out of my hand. he went nuts. i have never seen as immediate and animated a reaction save for something scary like a dog or something huge falling in the room, or the like. instantly, he's sniffing at it, trying to take it away from me, gnawing on it, following me as close as he possibly can, trying to climb up me. i'm trying to get him to get to a place where he can play with it without where he won't run off with it. he has clearly lost his mind. so, i take him to our (his) bed, hold onto it firmly, and let him go at it. i was almost afraid he was going to break a tooth he was so excited, but the wood is relatively soft and he wasn't chewing terribly hard. i held onto it for a few minutes trying to keep him at least calm as he has his first trip on the stuff.

i only could let him have at it for a few minutes as i had to go somewhere, so i sealed it up, placed it where he couldn't get at it, and left for a few hours. when i got back, he was sleeping comfortably, but was clearly excited to see me and wanting to get back to it. so, i placed him on a bed and let him have the piece. i left him alone for a while and he happily gnawed on the thing for about fifteen minutes, rolling, batting his eyes, purring, wanting to play with me, you name it. when i came back in the room, he had drooled all over one side of his face, looked in a happy but animated trance very similar to a catnip high, and had an appetite. when i went to the bed where he had been, he had drooled a puddle and clearly had messed up the blankets in a playful way.

since then, a few hours ago as i write this, he's been running around wanting to play, full of energy, and enjoying eating. he hasn't crashed yet, but i expect he will in a couple more hours as he does when he is on a catnip high. he hasn't been interested in catnip much lately, but even when he is, he never reacted like he did today. And later, he slept hard.

i'll have more to report, but i want to get this out to you fellow Caturdayians who responded. i got the sample from (feel free to share this info):

Akiko Mingoth or Manda
THE CAT HOUSE INC.
403-228-2287 (CAT-CATS)
Calgary, Canada
http://www.thecathouseinc.com
manda­w­oodr­uff[nospam-﹫-backwards]liam­g­*com
(their webspace is spotty, so it is best to call)

and i highly suggest getting a small amount to try. i wouldn't go the route of the sample since now i have only one chunk and i'm going to have to get more as i hoard this small amount. call them up and ask for some. it is pretty cheap.

i have posted these scans of the literature that they sent along with the sample:

Thanks! The "walking around the tetrapod" pics tells how I felt the entire day. I still have yet to do my wedding album & I don't want to have them in there. I crashed on the bed as soon as I got into my pjs & slept of 12 hours...

I saved room for FerFer72's kitties but, after that, I'll be out of room. sherpa18 was right last week when he said I needed a bigger organ. Story of my life. ;-)

Can anyone give this mess a caption?

Lucy is about center. She's sitting on the keys.

I know the kitties don't look like they should because I suck at this.

Please forgive me!

Sorry about your migraine. My Mom suffers from those and they suck. I hope you feel better soon!

I just hope predle can pick out her Morticia. If it weren't for the pink cat figurine, I don't think you'd see her.
