One of our friends rescued a kitten several months ago and has been in the process of spoiling her silly 😉 Pita is a frisky gray tabby cat who earned her name by being a bit of a PITA, according to her mom- LOL. In spite of being the occasional pain Pita is a much loved kitty and is very affectionate. The first time Sal and I visited Pita leaped right onto my shoulder and started rubbing against my head and purring in my ear. She stayed there for most of our visit! Of course I immediately fell in love with this sweet and adorable kitty. I’ve already sent Gayle home with some fresh clipped catnip as well as a bag of dried catnip, but I decided this kitty needed her own supply on demand. And since my own catnip is doing so well I knew I’d be able to divide one of the clumps and pot it up so Pita could have her fresh nip whenever she wanted it. But of course I couldn’t just plop it in a pot and be done with it- oh no, not me! I had to make it extra special, so I made the pot personalized by sculpting a miniature Pita kitty lounging on the rim and adding a sign saying PITA’S CATNIP, just so everyone would know who the catnip belonged to. 😉
Of course Calcifer had to inspect my work 😉
I dug up a few healthy little shoots that should do well. They had some nice roots and I think this pot will be full of catnip in no time.
I just wanted to share this quick little project with you all. Lately it’s been all about catnip! I’ve been busy making new catnip toys to replace the ones I’ve sold. If you’re interested in any of my catnip or cat toys check out my Organic Catnip Toys category in CreativeCritters.
And of course if you’d like me to create a custom order for you (pet sculptures, cat toys, etc.) just let me know and I’d be happy to work with you 🙂
