Requiem for a Nip Plant

My nip plant in happier times.

Recently some of my furrends have been complaining on how their humans haven’t been keeping up their nip plants. Then they proceed to show photos of happy, healthy nip plants that make the plant in the above photo look pathetic.

If you guys wanna see what my pathetic nip plant looks like today, I’m gonna show you. It ain’t pretty. In fact, some of you may get physically sick. It’s not for the weak of heart.


Is this not a crime against nature? Is this not a crime against The Cat? Kittehs of the jury, shouldn’t some human be held accountable for this poor sickly nip plant.

Although, if you look closely, you’ll see some new shoots starting to come out. I’ve seen these before but TW always has a way to kill them. I’m not holding my breath that anything is gonna come of this.


Should The Cat be optimistic about this turn of events? I’m not so sure. OR, should The Cat ax—not so politely—for a new nip plant?

  8. My nip plant looks very pathetic, too. But my motivation to keep it lush gets low when my boys show no interest in it..haha.
    I see new shotts coming out. I hope they get to grow and make you happy :-)

  9. There's no need for a nip plant around here because Truffles isn't nutty about nip :)

    But even if she was there would be a problem...I have dried flowers around the house because they're already dead ;)

  10. Well CK, that plant looks like it's struggling alright BUT I say "where there's green, there's hope".....little shoots coming up is a sign that the plant is refusing to go quickly and without a fight. I'll be cheering for it!

    Hugs, Sammy

  22. Oh wow, CK. That is pitiful. You definitely need a new nip plant.

    We're lucky...the mom has done pretty good with ours this year, though she doesn't give us nearly as much fresh nip as she should.

  23. We don't even have ferns. We are plant-underprivileged.

  24. You know, honestly, if the Human had got herself tossed in the slammer for her movie-making, who'd be feeding ME I ask you????

  25. What? Nip comes from a plant? WE just get some dried stuff (which we love), but we had no idea where it comes from...

    Hugs,
