Sepia Scenes - Catnip Thief

The neighbor cat, Libby, stopped over to abscond the catnip that was potted for our felines, Linus and Rigby. Our pair are house cats, and only breathe the outside air through window screens - Libby, a very friendly animal, roams a bit from her domicile. The catnip thief is tan, an almost serious sepia monochrome. So, for Sepia Scenes, Libby figures predominately as she rolls around the aromatic mint more formally known as Nepeta Cataria. We didn't tell our cats about this incident, prefurring to surprise our boys with fresh catnip instead...

Hello, Ralph,
Good for Libby that she was allowed what is is naturally attracted to.
She looks just like a perfect nosy cat should be.
Bet she'd like to say hello to your boys too.
Good sepia catch anyhow.

OH NO! Please do NOT tell Linus and Rigby about what Libby did. You must, must, MUST avoid a major neighbourhood incident.

Libby is a gorgeous furry feline.
She not only is stealing the catnip she looks as if she is devouring it.
I'm smiling at EG's comment.
Have a great Thursday Ralph!

Theft of catnip would be a fighting offense in our house. Of course, like yours they are stuck inside and would only be able to hiss and carry on at the window. Libby looks quite lovely in her sepia environment.

Lol! EG is right!

And nice of you to share your catnip. I hope Linus and Rigby didn't notice anything different...

btw, I never thought about the roaring of the elephants. Now I hear them!
