we bought one of those cheap scratching box things...and it comes with a bag of cat nip to sprinkle on it...OMG Frahnz was so so so funny...he started kneading the carpet and rubbing his face on the scratcher thing...he was drooling ans purring so loud, it was just so funny...it was his first catnip experience since the vet told us catnip is bad for kittens, so we waited to give him any...I will try and get him on film next time lol


He loves mint candy, he will beg for it when I pull it out, I have never used vicks so I am not sure about that...but the one thing he goes nuts for is baked ruffles lol...ash eats lays and he hates them, my mom likes regular ruffles and he leaves her alone...but when I open my baked ones he goes crazy lol...hes just a silly giant kitten lol

I never heard that catnip wasn't good for kittens, but I do know that they don't have any reaction to it. I didn't know about that and I gave some to my cats when they were around 5 months old. No reaction at all. Now they have some reaction,but not much or for very long.


Ruffles? Lol, crazy cat!

We have to hide the baked ruffles in the cabinet with the childrens safety lock on it or he will get them lol...silly ole kitty lol


my vet said that for some kittens its just they don't get anything from it, but for some kittens it causes a chemical imbalance that can last hours causing seizures, aggresive behavior and lasting brain damage...she stressed that not all kittens have this reaction, but enough do for her to tell her patients to avoid it till the cat is over 6 months old, she prefers a year...I have read in places of allergic type reactions in kittens causing aggressive behavior...I don't know if its all true or not, but we just wanted to be on the safe side...
