Intervention Time?


Salem here, and I have a confession to make.

I am a hard-core Nip Addict!
And Valerian Root, too.

I ask you, is that so bad?

And is it really even my fault?

I never even HAD the Nip until I came inside last year.

Here I am, hanging out in the Yellow Bedroom, checking out the new rug and facilities when Daddy appears with the Nip Jar and the Valerian Container.  He put a pile of each on the floor.

Kitties, Daddy is a Pusher!
I tried to resist...

...but in the end, I gave in.
Sometimes, your brain cells overrule your better instincts.
So, I rolled in the Nip, and then I hit the Root.

My pupils got so big I couldn't look at the camera!
Oh wow, Man!

After rolling some more, I settled in for a huge bathing session to get all the Nip out of my furs.
::lick lick lick::

As you can see, I had a lot of washing to do...
Total Coverage!

And then it was time to stretch out and nap off the Nip.

Kitties, do you think I need a Nipervention?
(Please say "No"!)

Happily Yours,

Salem  XX


  1. Oh mom is laughing so hard!!!! We took a vote and we are all in agreement that you do NOT need a nipervention. We just need to teleport over so we can grind the nip into our furs too!!! Save some for us!

  2. Well that'S an amazing nip fest and I think I need to book a flight to your place. Our supplier is clearly not up to standard. Stran-velk read your post- he is a wise old cat who has been known to indulge and he says only you can know for yourself if it is a problem, and whether you know you are powerless over the nip. If you admit that then he says you have to take 12steps but he didn't tell me where too.
    Good luck with the munchies my friend!

  3. Oh Salem, I am so captivated by your plump little thighs that I can hardly follow the concersation. What were we talking about?

    Oh, yes. The Nipervention. Well, first, Daddy really IS a pusher. You know, the first doses are always free. It's only later when you come begging for a just a taste, selling your first-born, that things get ugly.

    Oh wait, that's some heroin movie, isn't it--Truckspotting or something? Sorry, it's those thighs again.

    Still, I haven't seen such disgraceful overindulgence since Al Pacino buried his face in cocaine in the Scarface remake. I think it's too late for you, my sweet.

    Come to me. I'll take you to rehab.

  4. Salem, your daddy is a purrfessional pusher for sure but we don't think you're at the stage for needing a nipervention yet. You handled your nip very well! We're wondering what the root is though. We're nip addicts too and wonder if root is stronger stuff.

  5. That is one wild nip fest. I see nothing wrong with that so long as you don't do it too often.

  6. Yow! Now that's what we call a nip fest! Your daddy is contributing to the deliquency of a minor kitteh...totally not your Nipervention necessary, we say.

    -Pip, Smidgen, Minnie

  7. Salem, we want to come party with you, sweet girl=does your Daddy have enough nip for 3 more nip heads :)?!!...We'll be right over!...xoxo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  8. Salem, I'm afraid there is not much you can do when you have an enabler like your male human! He is the one who needs the intervention before you ever have a hope of facing your addiction!

  9. Ha..ha..Salem, you are so funny ! Your place is like a Cat Dream World ! all of fun things happen cool !

    Love and purrs

  10. NO! But we cud come over and help yoo by having sum ourselves, so yoo don't overdose! MOL!

  11. Hey, I think that looks pretty darn NipNormal! I never heard of that root stuff though, hmmmmm!

  12. Sweet Salem!!! What you need is a lava lamp and some psychedelic chairs!! LOL!!

    AWwwwwww!! Me and Charlie would love to join you!!

    Take care

  13. I was wondering if you have ever seen my video, "Catnip Reefer Madness"?

  14. NO you don't have a problem Salem but should we be reporting your daddy to the authorities?

  15. Oh know us gals always stick together? Well, I want to come and roll in the nip too if that's alright. I don't even care that mom watches and laughs. If YOU need nipervention, I do too.

  16. We don't think you need an nipervention - we think you need more cats to help you use up all that good stuff! We'll be right over!

  17. We think you're just fine, Salem! But hey, if you need help cleaning out those furs, just let us know!

  18. Oh, my...! Look at you, totally covered! ROTFL!!! Hilarious!

    Nah, you don't need an intervention; as others have said, you just need some of us to help you use it all up!

    BTW, where does your mom get the valerian root? Our human takes it (capsule) sometimes to help her sleep, but presumably you are getting it dried.

  19. MOL Salem you are for sure nip addicted but what fun you are having and you deserve all the fun available each and every day,
    Madi and Mom

  20. Well we do not think you need to have a nip intervention. Especially since we want to come over and join you Salem. That looks like so much fun getting that nip all over you. I bet that nip over lasted forever.
    Have a terrific Tuesday.

  21. I'd say that's not a problematic but a very satisfactory situation you are in, Salem. Boy, your dad knows how to dish out the good stuff. Mooooom, I want Valerian NOW!
    Purrs, Siena

  22. WOW ! A nip covered kitty ! Looks like you had a fine time ! Thank you Salem for a much needed laugh !!

    Eva & Gracie's Mom

  23. Oh my stars ~ that is quite the nip fest!!! :)

    So many cute kitties here ~ I will be back for sure.

    Thank you for visiting my blog ~ and Banjo says he will try to bottle some rain and send it done to Las Vegas to you! We have plenty to spare ~ ha!

    xo Catherine & Banjo

  24. You were having a great time Salem and we laughed at your total coverage picture - (and we were the teensiest bit jealous we must admit). Our mum isn't mean with the nip but she's not as generous as your Daddy - could he come over and give her some idea of how much nip gives total coverage - please, please, please.
    Luv Hannah & Lucy xx xx

  25. Absolutely not! Nip is the Bast-given right for all kittehkind.

  26. Wow, your daddy is a serious pusher! We've never that THAT much nip at once before. Think your dad can talk to our dad. . . ?

  27. LOL!!! Clearly the parents are at fault.

  28. We love valerian root too, but our Moms think it smells like dirty feet!

  29. Please, please let us come over and roll with you.
    Mom got us some new catnip toys and they are worthless. What brand does daddy use? Or is it homegrown?

  30. Nipervention? NAH! We'll be right over to help you clean up your furs though!

  31. I'm gonna say no to nipervention! I am also addicted to the nip. If there is a nip toy, I lick it until it's sopping wet (Mama says ewww). Have you ever had a Plauge Ratsie toy? It has both nip and root. It smells awful according to the humans but I think it smells heavenly.

    Salem, you're lucky your daddy is such an enabler. I wish mine were more indulgent of my addiction.

  32. We say HECK NO!!! Salem, we don't see anything wrong with a little nip induced delirium!!! Mom did the same thing with me when I wouldn't stop picking on Jay this weekend (in fact, that's our tomorrow post!!). You're OK in our book!!!

    Have a great day!!!

    ~Nico, Simon & JayJay :)

    Ps. Simon: May Ling, I'll be right over to *blush* snuggle!!

  33. Hilarious!! It looks like you were having a total blast :)

    Glad I found your blog -- looking forward to following it!

    Come visit me too!

    and Katt Food:

  34. That looks so much fun. i wish I was there with you.

  35. Our mama is roaring with laughter....seriously!!!!!!!!! She needed that laugh today.....we have had a gloomy day as a tropical storm camped out over us and dumped tons of rain on us.

    We don't think you need any nipervention, Salem....we think a kitty can never get too much nip. xxxxxxxxx

  36. There is no such thing as a nip overdose/addiction! Just ask our pusher, er, daddy...

  37. Salem
    I have only one comment :

    Can I join you?



  38. Wow bean you dad over to us - we'll take the nip and val!

  39. We say "NO". But the Beins better act more responsible in their allowing ya ta have so much of it!

  40. Salem, just don't try to drive after partaking in all that nip and root and you'll be just fine!!

  41. My dearest Salem! Banish the nip?!? NEVER! I say it's meant for us, why else would they call it CATnip??! See my point!!

    Stop by anytime, we LOVE catnip and always have plenty to share :)


    Romeo and "her"

  42. Salem, we think that you should keep the nip! It is great stuff and you just look so cute!!

  43. The only one who needs an intervention is your Dad for being a pusher. Something tells me he doesn't have to push this stuff on you, you've got a mind of your own.

    And your mind says to go for it! And why not! It's good to let loose every now and then.

  44. Wow, Salem, you are pretty hard core with that nip. Where were all your kitty buddies when you were nipping? Your Dad must really love you!

  45. Salem, I had a little nip and valerian celebration the other night inspired by you. Just posted about it. Do you prefer one thing over the other? I just really, really, really LOVE valerian.
    Purrs, Siena

  46. wow... we are feeling hooked just watching you roll... where do you get that stuff? Not bothered about cat nip but we might just love that valerian stuff. Love Darcy and Bingley xx


Oh Boy...this is gonna be GREAT!
