This is my old friend, Mr. Nippy. Remember him? The Human fills his little belly with high-quality nip and then microwaves him for a few seconds to enhance my sniffing pleasure. Mr. Nippy has served me well. I often carry him with me from place to place.
So why would Mr. Nippy's place in my affections be at risk?
This is the reason.
On Tuesday, the Human purchased Nip Seeds. She filled a pot with soil, planted the seeds as directed, watered with MiracleGro-laced water and put the pot out on the little garage roof outside our dining room window. And there it sits, in the fog and cold. The packet says sprouts will appear in 12-15 days. Uh-huh.
I don't think Mr. Nippy has much to worry about.
BREAKING NEWS: As of approximately 4 p.m. PDT, the pot full of dirt and seeds has been brought indoors and attended to in the manner recommended by our friend MomKat Trish of the Katnip Lounge. The Human now feels she will have someone else to blame if tender shoots of Nippy Goodness fail to materialize from the little seeds.
