Re: Re: catnip


Wow. That's amazing considering he's declawed. Sugar is not. I don't
believe in it, though I understand the point-of-view of those that do.
Just got done doctoring a scratch I got for bringing her in earlier than
she likes. She hates this early getting dark business as much as I do. I
understand my formerly feral kitty. She will always have one paw in the
jungle. Fortunately the vet understands as well.

Jason was never feral, but he is a pretty good hunter, even though 
missing his front claws! He has taken birds (rarely) further from the 
house, but I suspect they were not healthy to begin with.
