not again

Not again...



Every year it's the same thing.  EVERY year.  Every year 'round this time, Peepers' fingers start turnin' green...

NO, it's not on account of her wearin' cheap jewellery.

Okay, so maybe it is.  Maybe her jewellery is cheap, I mean.  I can't help the fact that I have a limited budget and have sometimes given her cheap stuff.  And when you think about it, it's her own fault, really, on account of the fact that she has gone and hidden her plastic money from me...  AGAIN.  Had she not gone and done that, AGAIN, I'd be able to buy her somethin' really nice for Peepers' day.  Somethin' not so cheap.  You know?


What?  What's that, Peepers?  What's that you're babblin' on about now?

I DIDN'T KNOW that catnip I ordered that one time was gonna be so expensive.  I didn't know!

Gosh darn it, a kitty orders a few kilos of primo nip on-line - ONCE - and a kitty is never allowed to forget 'bout its price.


But anyway, as I was sayin'...

As I was sayin', every year 'round this time, Peepers gets this itch to...

NO, she doesn't have a fungal infection.

NO, she doesn't have fleas, either.

I don't think.

And NO, she doesn't have...

Okay, truth be told, I don't even know what that is.  But it really does sound disgustin', for sure.


But as I was sayin'...

As I was sayin', every year 'round this time, Peepers starts itchin' to get those somewhat green thumbs of hers into some dirt and start plantin'.  Plantin' seeds...  Transplantin' baby plants...  You know, that sorta thing.

AND THE PROBLEM with all this plantin' is...

The problem is, half the stuff she plants is probably gonna die.  You see, Peepers' thumbs aren't nearly as green as she'd like to think.  Come this time next month, there are likely gonna be a whole lotta DEAD plants in those pots of hers.

And then...

And then...

And then I'm gonna have to hear all about it.  And she's gonna expect me to be all it's-okay-there-Peepers and it's-not-the-end-of-the-world and there's-no-need-to-cry-over-spilt-pottin'-mix and that sorta thing.  And let me tell you somethin', my friends...

Let me tell you...

Let me tell you somethin', my friends:THAT SORTA THING is simply not in my nature.  I'm a cat.  We cat's don't do stuff like that.



And remember:



Continue to practice SOCIAL DISTANCIN' measures



Remember to mask up, too.


  1. Great to hear from you again I'm the same as your peeps I used to have green fingers they seem to have disappeared and I can't find them. Hugs and purrs.xx😻🐈‍⬛🐾Spike from Scotland.

  2. We peeps here have no green thumbs fur sure!

  3. Hi Sivvers! If she just planted all nip plants, we bet things would work out better. Well, maybe not, but at least you and Saffy would like that better. Right? :)

  4. You made us MOL about the catnip, Seville...did you really...MOL MOL...We like all the green, green fingers, green leprechauns, greenery and we always find something we've sown back in another year, so no need to worry😸Double Pawkisses for a Happy Week ahead🐾😽💚

  5. It's a tough thing, Seville...humans are gonna do what they are gonna do, without listening to their wise kitties!

  6. Maybe this year they will all survive. :)

  7. Our Petcretary's fingers and thumbs are very her dreams, LOL!!

    Good luck with the planting affairs.

  8. Sadly my momma has no green fingers whatsoever. I couldn't grow anything if her life depended on it. And therefore we never get catnip. She sometimes remembers to buy some grass or nip from the store, but it's inferior in both taste and texture. *heavy sighs* I feel a Sarah McLachlan song coming on.

  9. You definitely need to send peeps #1 on a self counselling course. That way you can offload some of your worries onto her, rather than the other way around. Or maybe the plants can offload their stresses and strains, I bet they have a few. . .
