Smoky and Betsy are our two cats. Since we made the decision to keep them as indoor cats, we try to keep them stimulated, give them challenges. In the dead of winter, what is more welcome than some greenery. So the cats now have catnip.

Smoky, the 26-pound gentle giant, soon gave in.

Betsy assumed that would happen. Peace reigns in the kitty kingdom once again.  🙂
