Daily Photo: There’s No Catnip

“There’s no catnip”.

I don’t understand, when we saw you with the basket we had hopes you’d come back with something useful, like catnip. There is nothing in here we like, and I want to know why.

There’s basil in there, you like basil, it’s your honorary middle name.

Basil isn’t catnip. What is any of this good for anyway?

This is for my dinner.

But what about our dinner?

You are cats and you don’t eat vegetables.

But you have all these useless green things in here, why isn’t there any catnip?

If I grow catnip all of you get mad because all the cats in the neighborhood come to our yard to eat the catnip.

Can’t you keep them away?

Sure, I could sit out in the yard all day and guard the catnip plant. Then we’d be living in the Escort because that doesn’t pay the bills.

We even sent our Mama Mimi out there with you in the hopes she’d convince you to grow some.

Mimi has other business when she’s out in the yard.

Humans are so unreliable.

So much for two squares and a roof over their head…
