Under the Influence

Under the Influence

I may have indulged in too much nip. I didn't think that was possible but the PM and the wee ones came home from the day of library and swimming lessons to find me and the cranky Shade in this position. I think Shade was over her limit too to allow this to happen.



Our rear paws are actually touching.

So take heed when nip is offered. Pace yourselves.



I also thought I was hallucinating. I heard a noise in the woodstove and when I peeked through the glass I saw THREE sets of beady eyes looking back at me. I have to admit, I got a little scared. I retreated to my bed and tried to sleep it off. It was not a bad trip though, there were three starlings in the wood stove. To me, if you are stupid enough to fly down a chimney into a woodstove, you need to be my midday snack. The PM rescued them though and they flew off to have stupid starling babies.

Oh well, there is always tomorrow.

Eat the starlings today, and be full for today. Let the starlings have starling babies, and you've got lunches for a long time! ;)

It's really hard to draw the line at nip intake limit... before you know it, it's happy dance time or 'why am I sleeping next to you' scenario like urs, Goldie! hee hee

Parker said...

Wow - you are touching! That 'nip must have been pretty powerful.

The Island Cats said...

We didn't know that you could have too much nip...thanks for clueing us in on that!

Whicky Wuudler said...

After seeing your head in that nip bucket the other day, this picture does not surprise me one bit. However I thought you were a seasoned stoner Goldie and could hold your nip. Nice rear paw touchy action with Shade. Those starlings are in line for a Darwin Award.

Gandalf and Grayson said...

That was some kind of powerful nip! Even so, we think you may want to try it again, if it means you can curl up together and touch!

ZOOLATRY said...

A little cuddle goes a long way...

Liss said...

Take it easy on the nip.

Ariel said...

"Wow" that must have been some strong nip.I tagged you two for a meme please go to my blog and see :)

The Crew said...

Yes, when indulging in 'nip you must pace yourself. If you don't you'll get too 'nipped out and lose control.

PB 'n J said...

Wow that really must have been some powerful nip! We think you were pretty restrained not eating the whole bucket!

WOW, what a trip! Glad you survived it! ~Purrs~

MoMo said...

No wonder, you had your head IN that big bowl of premium nip the other day. I saw it!!!! You know you really should dig into the starlings when you could. Haven't you heard what they say about one bird in the paw is worth ten in the trees?

Sweet Praline said...

Sounds like that was some pretty potent nip!

The Cat Realm said...

Hahahaha - Tintin will overfeed Mrs. Oz with nip now! Whenever he tries to touch her - she screams and runs away!
I very much like the expression in the second picture!

You look like nip induced bookends.

Skeeter, LC, and Ayla said...

Sometimes, touching the "OTHER" is OK...

Evie/VampyVictor said...

They are some silly birdies to fly down a chimney!! :)

Cat with a garden said...

Awwww, now look at them! You're so sweet together! ; )
Moms are so strange... mine saved a bumblebee today. I mean, with winter coming up , it was almost a mercy killing...
Sweet purrs, Siena

GRRRETA said...

I never imagined that there is such a thing as too much nip, but the photographic evidence of you two in such a compromising position is certainly a wake-up call. I will pace myself.

Miss Kitty, NFC said...

Oh my, your nip looks very potent! No wonder you are napping! I wish I had some whole-leaf nip like that. Lucky you.

Purrs and good wishes...

Miss Kitty

Tesla said...

oh no stoopid starling babies.

Sassy Kat said...

Wow! Just think you had birdies that actually flew into a stove. That is really having your meal prepared for you, just set to bake and there you go!
Thanks for stopping by and helping me celebrate my first blogoversary, it is always nice to see you. Boy we all sure were colorful when we were finished weren't we?

Gretchen and Mike said...

Well, now there's a start of something good. And too bad about your midday snack getting rescued.

Hugs...G

Karen Jo said...

That must have been some really powerful nip. Imagine being too stoned to go for birdies who were right in your house. Of course, you would have had to get the wood stove door open first and that might have been hard.

Christine and FAZ said...

What an experience, the nip and the starlings both sound exciting. FAZ

Love and cuddles from Dorydoo.

Thoughts on Life and Millinery. said...

Oh, you two look so nice resting with your paws touching. My two kitty boys do that sometimes. I think it must keep their feetsie warm.

Tiggie FOC said...

G + S: Please ignore Blondie talking about us touching paws. It only happened once...by mistake, and cat nip was involved.

Frisky Fall Contest said...
