Daily Sketch: Youthful Catnip Victims

It’s true. Bella has discovered catnip in a big way and can’t wait to get her paws on any catnip toy. And when she does, she pays no attention at all to Smokie. She especially likes her Flower Power Mousie and her Psychedelic Sharkie, but really, anything will do. Which will eventually lead to “acts of desperation and violence…hilarity and swooning”, and a cat who is “likely to do anything”. Or maybe she’ll slip into stupefaction “of an imbecile-lethargic kind”. Sad but true.

Yes, they are VERY fun and funny to watch! The other cartoon for tonight was Giuseppe on a box and Jelly Bean on the bed, box seats to watch the GREAT CHASE as the blurs Smokie and Bella ran back and forth and back and forth past the boys in a non-stop game of chase. Or Giuseppe’s expression at watching them wrestle: “Did we do that?” Ah, youth.
