bar fight!

So the other night, peep #1 was making some catnip mice for me to send off to a couple of friends of mine.  She had knitted up the mice quite nicely (although I really believe I could have done better...  given the chance) and it was time for them to be stuffed.  She filled them with some white stuff...  that stuffing stuff...  I don't know what it's called...  stuffing, I guess.  Then, before sewing up their bottoms and adding their tails, she added the nip.

Well, you should have seen the sight.  I had a good view as I had been sitting on the couch, in the family room, supervising.  Yeah, the peep often needs my supervision.  Cats came from everywhere.  Constance emerged from under the couch, Beatrice appeared from behind the big chair.  I think my Auntie Primrose had been in her favourite nesty-type thing but she made an appearance, too.  And then there were Seville and Auntie Snowdrop...  not to mention Mason and my dad, Jacob.  Just about all the cats in my family made an appearance.

As they approached the peep - and the bag with the nip - they all held their noses up in the air, and were sniffing.  Sniffing the wonderful scent that is the nip.  Where was the nip?  Who had the nip?  How were they gonna get the nip?  You can imagine the thoughts going through their minds.  Catnip is very serious business, you know.

It's a good thing I'm not afraid of cats 'cause actually, if I were, it could have been one spooky sight.  Good also, 'cause I am a cat.  That could cause some emotional issues...  if you know what I mean.

Anyway, the peep was able to fend the cats off.  It was difficult.  I tried to help her but then I thought...  "No, I want some of the nip, too."  So actually, I wasn't much help at all.  Actually....  yeah, we won't get into that.

Finally, the peep got all the mice finished.  Once that was done, she sprinkled the remaining nip on the floor and scratching post, the couch and the chairs.  We sniffed it and rolled around in it and had oh-so-much fun.

Mason got a little inebriated though.  So did Seville.  Next thing I knew there were paws flying everywhere.  That's when peep #2 walked into the room and yelled, "Bar Fight!"  Oh, how embarrassing.  My sister and brother really must learn how to hold their nip.  I know you can't see me right now but - trust me - I'm holding my head in my paws and shaking it gently back and forth.  And in case you were wondering...  yes, that is a picture of my sister Mason, sleeping it off.  I repeat, how embarrassing.

  1. Won't it have been easier for peep #1 to have sprinkled the nip to keep all of you occupied while she was busy with the mice? :)
    Good that everyone had such a good time with the nip!

    1. Probably but... well... she's just a peep. I try not to hold the bar up too high... if you know what I mean.

  2. Nerissa don't ever apologise for your sisfur and brofur - if they choose to act like delinquents then let them apologise for themselves. Just have a dainty sniff of nip and we're sure you'll soon forget about it.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  5. Nothing like a bit of nip - in moderation that is. Hope your brofur and sisfur won't do that again.

    1. No, no... problem was totally on my end. I'm blaming the peep. You see, once we removed that word verification thingy ('cause it was causing so many troubles for so many cats... myself included!), the peep enabled comment moderation. But sometimes, I can't get to the computer right away so it takes a bit for the comment to be approved. Blogger stores it until I can get the peep to give me computer time. I'm sorry we made you think your comment was lost. It wasn't. It's up now... both are!

  18. We're glad that you didn't forget yourself, Nerissa! A nip addict is not a pretty sight. We do think that some nip could have been sprinkled earlier, just a bit.

  19. Uh oh....dipping in the nip is a testy yet tasty habit. At least SOME of you have the good sense to know about moderation when it comes to enjoying the finer things in life! I do think it's very nice that your peep was making catnip mice for her friends though - and not just because you all got the benefit of the "leftovers" either!

    1. Even better than that... she made the catnip mice for MY friends! They've been mailed and I hope they'll arrive at the cats' houses real soon.

  22. MOL, we can imagine how funny that must have looked with cats climbing out of the woodwork. When we all stalk into the kitchen after food mum says that we look like the velociraptors stalking about in Jurassic Park.

  24. Sounds like a fun time was had by all but what I want to know is nip actually legal??

    1. Oh yes... perfectly legal. We have an RCMP officer living nearby so if it wasn't... well... you know...

  25. Funny story! Can we see the cute finished nip mice that caused all the trouble?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm afraid the peep already mailed them off to my friends however, I'm sure there will be more made when the peep starts her elfin for the big guy in red. I'll make sure to get pictures then, okay?
