Stick of the Vine, Silvervine That Is

Meowllo everypawdy, does me have somethin’ to tell you today. Furst let me say dat it’s stormin’ here again and we’re ‘spectin’ both maintenance and a plumber, so we’ll be ‘round to visit as soon as we can. Yeah we have a new maintenance man, it’s da managers son. Our air conditioner was put in hap hazardly and da drain pipe ain’t drainin’. ‘Course we didn’t know dat till mommy stepped on wet cawrpet. This has happened befur and our then maintenance man sent hims mommy over to fix it and nopawdy ever followed up. Her idea of fixin’ it was to scoop da water out of da trough. Well dat didn’t fix da drain purroblem. Mommy asked them to get somepawdy out to purropurrly fix it, but since da water had been poured out and it wasn’t leakin’ on da floor dat minute, da manager did nuffin’. Well it didn’t get fixed so it filled up again and mommy turned in a request fur maintenance. So yesfurday da manager and her son da maintenance man came down.

Dezi cocks head to the side in thought

Mommy let da maintenance man in, but told da manager dat it was a maintenance issue and there was no reason fur her to be there. Furst she said, “I wanna see”, to which mommy replied dat she didn’t need too and then she said, “Well, I was just going to stand right here inside the door.” Okay, so which is it, ya’ need to see it, or you just want to get in our house? Well mommy pawlitely told her No and went to show da maintenance man where da purroblem was. While he was there, he found dat we also have a small leak from one of da pipes on da hot water heater. Since he’s not a licensed plumber, he can’t fix dat, so he told da manager to send out da plimber and he’ll be back to fix da pea trap on our a/c so dat hopefully it’ll drain purropurrly from now on. Well, now dat me’s gotten way off track, let me get back to our special treat.

 Hmmmmm Kitty heaven. Nip and what’s this?

Da Vine in a stick

So, all us cats have heard ‘bout catnip right? Ifin not all, at least most of us. “Course we also know dat not all kitties react to da nip, and Silvervine has taken da kitty world by storm lately. Our furst taste of da vine came after our ‘pawrtment flood when our furiends from da Katnip Lounge sent me and sis Lexi some as a cheer us up and homecomin’ gift. We liked it fine, but we both liked nip too. And mommy was really glad cuz after checkin’ into this vine, she found it was quite costly, even da seeds to grow it yourself. Most of ya’ know dat sis Raena likes da nip too. We had no idea ‘bout da vine, cuz we didn’t have any left. Sis Lexi got da last of da gifted vine. Well here lately our furiends Purrseidon and Mr. M keep talkin’ ‘bout this vine stick he has and how it helps him with his arfur-itis. Well sis Raena nor meself has arfur-itis, but dat stick does sound fun.

 Dezi enjoying a silvervine stick

 Oh me cats!!! This vine stick is sooooooo good

Well you know our mommy, she wants us to have everythin’ we need and most of what we want. She can’t afford dat, but she wants it. And just cuz mommy can’t afford somethin’ doesn’t mean she won’t try to find it. So mommy began a search fur these sticks of silvervine and actually found some fur less than a dollar. Mommy added them to her wish list and said, “Someday, girls, someday.” Anyways, a short time later some pawsum Anonymous Angels put some green papers in our paypal account and after checkin’ with them to see ifin they minded mommy spendin’ a dollar frivolously, she ordered them sticks. They was gonna be shippin’ fur furee all da way from China. Mommy figgered they’d get here in time fur Christmas. MOL  Anyways, total cost was .99 pennies. Mommy didn’t mention to Raena and me dat she had ordered them cuz she had no idea when they would arrive. Well guess what? They got here this week. Seems mail from China doesn’t take any longer to get here than mail from da U.S..

 Raena playing with a silvervine stick

 This stick is all fur me? Fank you mommy and angels.

Raena couldn’t wait fur mommy to open da little package. She was crawlin’ and jumpin’ all over mommy da whole time. Mommy furinally got da package open and sure ‘nuff there they was, 2 sivervine sticks. Mommy ‘membered dat da instructions said to cut off some of da bark to expose da white vine flesh, so she purrceeded to da kitchen and got out a knife and carefully cut a few little notches into both sticks. Trust me, she was careful alright. Mommy has a finger dat doesn’t work right cuz she cut through da nerves and tendons and blood vessels and such years ago. Dat was long befur me was born, but me heard all ‘bout it. She had to have surgery to try to repair it, and it still ain’t right. Anyways, me’s getting’ side tracked again. Where was me?

 Raena playing with a silvervine stick

 Oh kittens, I’s luvs this stick of da vine.

Oh yeah, notchin’ da vine sticks. After notchin’ those sticks, mommy gave Raena one and me one. OMC Let me tell you, dat’s right kitties, pull up a seat. Ain’t nuffin’ in da world like a silvervine stick. Mommy says she ain’t sure ifin it’s actually da vine or just da stick dat makes us so happy, but either way, she’s glad we’re enjoyin’ them. And we are. Fank you sooooooo much sweet Angels fur da green papers and da sticks of da vine. We are so blest. Mommy’s been tryin’ to get a foto of us carryin’ ‘round our new sticks, she says it’s so funny. But alas, we’re too fast fur her. MOL  Me’s gonna wrap it up fur now and get me’s stick befur Raena steals it and claims both of them. Hope you all have a pawsum day.

We were both rescued from bad situations and our mommy raised us and trained us to be service cats. I want this blog to be interactive and get to know all of you, so comment and visit often.
