Thank you lady Bastet for the gift of catnip! by RavenMontoya Thank you lady Bastet for the gift of catnip! by RavenMontoya
Catnip. The gods' gift to cats. 'Nuff said. :roll:


Just to clarify: Bastet was/is an Egyptian cat goddess. You can read more about her over at Wikipedia [link]. :)

The Swedish name equivalent for "catnip" is "catmint" and I think catnip is a part of the mint family. :meow:
I totally agree with you. All serious cat lovers should know of Bast. :D

Why cat maffia?

Well, it's something I started calling my cats because they tend to gang up and do stuff together. It's like a small pack of gangsters at times. Always up to no good. :giggle:
Then there was a period when they left a couple of rodent heads outside my front door for about three days in a row. After that it seemed more than appropriate to call them "the cat maffia". :XD:

:giggle: I always got the rodents without heads - usually it started with the babies/kids, then mommy and last was daddy. Went over a week until the whole family was dead.

Yeah, cats tend to do that. My Felix [link] can spend hours staring at the same rodent hole in the ground. The area around where I live is crawling with big, fat water voles. They keep him very busy. Sometimes for days and weeks. Staring at the same hole until it's run out of voles. :XD:

He and my Nikky would have be great partners in crime! Nikky was a serial killer or better mass murderder! One rodent family per year and countless rats and other animals, usually headless. One time, he did line up five headless rats in a nice row on the grass in the garden, much like a hunters do after a successful hunt :XD: If he would have sit behind them, it would have been the perfect photo!

That would have been a frightfully awesome picture, indeed. Sounds like a really great hunter. :XD:
Felix caught a baby hare two years ago. It was pretty big and Felix was only 1,5 years old so I thought it was a huge accomplishment for such a young cat. The funny thing was that he brought it home and strutted around the lawn as if to tell everyone that he is the king. Tintin and Gizmo were only kittens then and they watched him in utter awe like: :omg: :omg:
He's been their idol ever since. :XD:

That's pretty cool. :D I live too far north for sharks except for the basking shark. It sometimes causes big excitement when spotted because it is so big. It only eats plankton, but it still scares the crap out of most swimmers though. We're not used to big fish around here. :giggle:
