Our cat Samantha doesn’t want for much; and she’s tough to buy gifts for. I wanted her to have something special for her 15th birthday, but she is a challenge! She has a few favorite treats which we always keep in supply, but toys and such don’t interest her much. She has loved the catnip plants she’s had in the past, but she hasn’t had one for a while.
Before I left for BlogPaws, I started a few organic plants from seed, and catnip was one of them. I had to leave the plants in the Dadz’ hands while I was gone, and he did a great job of keeping them going! When I got home I moved the catnip seedlings into the pretty pitcher we had used before. I wanted them to grow some more before giving them to Sam, and they were just about big enough, so I tied a bow around it and gave it to her as her birthday gift! I think it was a hit:
I had a few cat toys in my swag bag from BlogPaws, but where Sam is blind, toys are tough for her (not that she was ever a big toy lover anyway). I chose this Mylar Ball crinkly toy from Savvy Tabby (thank you to BlogPaws for the gifts), thinking since it made some noise she might find it easier to play with.
Well, she enjoyed rubbing her head on it while I held it anyway! There are some other catnip toys I’ll let her try, but the rest of the toys will go to cousin Nina, who will enjoy playing with them. I think Sam is happy to share with her, as long as she has her catnip plant. 🙂
