Get hip to the nip.
Oooooooooook. I’m back. Yes, I am here and moved in to our newly fixed up little house. So hello, again!
Firstly, we’ve been working super hard on getting our house all fixed up….like 3-5 days a week after work and almost all weekend every weekend since January. I know, right? I totally didn’t imagine that we were going to have to do so much but it was totally worth it and now we’ve got a cool little bungalow all our own!
I have missed drawing (and the lack of practice will show in the next few upcoming posts, yikes) but I am proud to say that I believe I will be back to some sort of regular drawing schedule. I hope.
I thought it would be fitting to tie in the house with the blog, so here I have a true story from today. Duncan and Smudge have adjusted pretty well to life here but Smudge is still fairly nervous, as usual. So our lovely neighbor stopped by and must have seen the cats peepin’ out the window once or twice because she brought us fresh catnip from her garden. How, we were also the lucky recipient of a package of catnip seeds from our friends, but haven’t gotten around to planting them yet. But we’d better do it quick because the catnip was a huge success…..sort of.
Duncan, the crazy, food-begging, fake-plant-chewing one was completely uninterested beyond a sniff and chose to go to his gross orange stick toy with the nasty dried catnip in it.
Smudge, on the other hand, went BANANAS for it!! I was shocked. He ate it up as fast as we could give it to him.
So that’s what this drawing is all about. Lame old Duncan sitting by his favorite toy and Smudgie rejoicing in the pleasure of a good fresh treat.
I really had no idea of the power of fresh catnip. Later today we went to visit little Norman (my brother’s cat, if you remember), since they now live down the street from us, and he was even more nuts about it. He was rolling all around on the floor seemingly trying to get more catnip from the wood floor. It was entertaining to say the least.
Anyway, sorry this has been so long overdue but be prepared for more cattoons in the future!!
