Aby-a-Day – 17 Februari: “A cat bitten once by a snake dreads even rope” (Silly Singapura Sunday)

About a month ago, Kate over at Hauspanther made a post about Patti Haskins’ amazing catnip snakes.

Well, they did look pretty awesome, and since both Jacoby and Alfred like to lick and roll on catnip toys, so, even though they were a bit expensive (especially considering the postage)…but they truly did look awesome, so I got one for Freddy and one for Jake. The snakes arrived after Freddy’s birthday, so I gave one snake to everybody whilst holding one back for Jake’s birthday in April.

I took the one out and gave it – I thought – to Jake and Freddy to go nuts on.

I was…surprised, to say the least.

Contrary to any of my expectations, Izaak was the one to attack and dominate the catnip snake.

Zak has never (before) shown any interest in catnip the way Jake and Freddy do.

I was amazed at how fiercely Zak attacked the catnip snake.

In retrospect, I guess I should have made a video of Zak and the snake. But what’s even stranger is, since that first day, he has entirely ignored the snake in favour of his mousies. What a funny little cat!

  1. I got those same snakes for my two. My boy Charlie reacted the same way and he usually isn’t affected by catnip. Both of them destroyed their snakes in less than 5 minutes! I’d say that’s some primo catnip! 😹😹😹😹😹😹
