Daily Photo Reprise: Take That, Catnip Toy! And That! 2011

Bite!

KICK!

Squeeze!

TOSS!

Kelly gives the catnip candy cane the beating of its life. Note her little nose peeking through the curve of the cane.

Kelly is somewhat shy, and while she is a very talkie tortie and very active in her safe little way, she is very, very gentle—until it comes to a catnip toy that needs to learn a lesson. Bite, kick, punch, toss, land, whatever it takes, that catnip toy will know who’s boss when she’s done.

It’s just good to see a shy kitty come out of her shell for a little bit.

We celebrate Christmas Catnip all year ’round.
