It’s always nice to bring your hostess a bunch of flowers from your garden, but what about the resident cat? Since kitty usually calls the shots in feline-centric households, it only seems fair. I propose catnip on a string.
Not all cats are susceptible to the intoxicating oils of the catnip or cat-mint plant. When presented with a fragrant bunch of greens, about half of all cats will respond. Be sure to offer your gift in an appropriate setting. If kitty drools green catnip all over your hostesses white couch, you probably won’t be invited back.
Catnip Bouquet Tutorial
- Turn at least 70% of your growing space into a catnip garden.
- Pinch a few leaves from the plant once it’s fully grown.
- Tie a bow around the bunch (six inches or less, please so kitty doesn’t get tangled).
- Deliver to your feline host.
If you follow these instructions carefully, you’ll be invited back again and again. Enjoy!
