Cats love silver vine. Well, 4 out of 5 cats love silver vine. I had never even heard of silver vine until a few days ago, when I was given several samples.
Silver Vine grows in the mountainous areas of China and Japan and has been used for cats for ages. It’s also more potent than catnip so you only need a little bit. Silver vine is ground into a fine brown powder that you can sprinkle on a scratching post or toy and let your cat have fun.
Of course, I couldn’t wait to try it out on my cats and they didn’t disappoint me. I sprinkled it on their cardboard scratcher and let them check it out. It only took a fewest ones for them to come check it out.
It was like a cat magnet.
After they rolled all over the cardboard scratcher and totally dismantled it, they were pretty chill.
He looks like he really enjoyed the silver vine.

I admit it, Snuffy is my favorite. How could he not be? He has the cutest face, he snorts and snores, and he is so sweet. I can’t believe he’s 15-years-old. Where does the time go? I just wish he could live forever.

Disney Postcard Art, an easy and fun way to bring the art of Disney into your home and show off your Disney Side.
On our recent trip to Disney World, we visited The Art of Disney store in Downtown Disney, soon to be Disney Springs! I loved everything! But being the frugal person I am, I couldn’t justify spending that much money. It was sooooo tempting.
Then I came across these adorable postcards and had a great idea. Why not frame them?
Then I found some fabulous frames at the Christmas Tree Shop, fabulous because they were just what I was looking for and they were only $3.99. Yes, I do really love a bargain!
I absolutely love how they came out and they make me happy every time I see them. Plus, at just about $30 for the whole project, it makes my frugal self very happy.
Jezebel hates our blow dryer. Every time I take it out, she makes it her mission to protect all of the other cats from the evil blow dryer.
Meet Baxter, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.
Handsome Baxter is a 3-year-old male domestic shorthair who loves to play and snuggle. As cats go, he’s just about purrfect! Come meet him at Lollypop Farm!
Until Friday September 5, 2015, Baxter and all his cat friends are available for reduced adoption fees. Check out the details below!
Usually I post about one of my cats, but today I’m posting about a special mother cat who lost her own kittens and adopted a litter of orphaned kittens. I just love stories like this.
Over the weekend, a mother cat was brought to Lollypop Farm, her litter of kittens were killed by a skunk. Then a litter of orphaned kittens, too small to be without their mom, came in. The wonderful staff at Lollypop Farm had an idea. They put the motherless kittens with the kitten-less mother cat and a wonderful thing happened, the mother cat accepted the kittens as her own and it was just about the sweetest thing ever.
Here are a couple photos from the video, which explains why they are a bit grainy.
If you go to Lollypop Farm’s Facebook page you can see the adorable video for yourself.
Now for Piper, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.
Piper is a 6-year-old male domestic longhair mix who goes from shy to very sociable once he figures out how well you scratch his back and chin. Piper came to Lollypop Farm with his buddy, Clouds. Clouds has found a new home but that leaves Piper a little lonely. We’re hoping he finds some new humans soon. Piper is available free of charge to approved adopters through Lollypop Farm’s Seniors-for-Seniors program.
