mixed feelings... part two

The cage...

I spoke to peep #1 and now know exactly why this heinous contraption is in my garden.  My feelings are mixed.  What to do...  what to do...  Do I find a way around the cage?  Dig in underneath the cage?  Destroy the cage?  I could do it...  I'm smart you know.  Hmmm....

My peep wants to grow Nepeta cataria...  otherwise known as catnip.  Now, this is a good thing.  I like catnip.  Hey, who am I kidding?  I LOVE THE NIP. 

Apparently, in the past, her attempts at growing the nip have failed.  She's a pretty good little gardener but, I guess, not good enough.  I mean, how hard can it be?  Plant some seed, water it, watch it grow...  The peep says that the nip can't grow fast enough to keep up with us cats.  She says, "it grows one inch and you little nipsters eat two!"  Is she blaming us?  Is she blaming the nip?  I'm pretty sure she's trying to blame anyone but herself.

Her little plan is to grow Nepeta cataria inside the cage.  The cage keeps the nip in and us out.  Now you see, this is why I don't like cages.  I don't like anything that keeps me out of where I want to be.  It just isn't right.  If I want a little nibble, why shouldn't I be able to get a little nibble?  I mean, isn't it supposed to be our nip?  The peep says she's growing it for us. 

I'm going to have to think about this for a while.  Maybe sleep on it.  Growing the nip...  good.  Keeping me out of the nip...  bad.  My feelings are well and truly mixed.  Hmmm...
