Hey, everybuddy!  Wally here!  We’ve been hearing alot about this stuff called silvervine…also known as Asian catnip.  Some kitties who have had it, say it’s Da Bomb…much better than regular catnip.  Well, we knew we had to get our paws on some of this silvervine stuff and see for ourselves.  So we begged and pleaded with our mom, and she finally ordered some P-Lows (pillows) filled with silvervine from Bina over at A Desperate,  Reluctant Housewife.  She makes these P-Lows and sells them to raise monies to help the stray kitties that live around her.  Our P-Lows came in the mail the other day…

Ernie!  Finally!!  We get to try silvervine!!
I hear this stuff came all the way from Maylasia!!

 Oh yeah, Wally!  Good thing it got through customs!!
I’ve been waiting for this!!

::sniff sniff sniff::
Whoa!  This stuff smells way stronger than regular nip!!

And it tastes almost as good as it smells!
::nom nom nom::

Let me try it, Wally!
::sniff sniff sniff::

Yowzer!!   This is some pretty good chit!!
Silvervine…where have you been my whole life??

Oh man!
The room’s spinning…
Make it stop, please!!

Later that day…

Well, Ernie…what’d you think?? 

Wally…I think those kitties were right…
Silvervine is Da Bomb!
I may never go back to regular nip.
But right now, I gotta sleep this stuff off…

Island Cats’ Mom here:  I hope I don’t have a couple of silvervine addicts now!  An intervention may be  in these mancats’ future!  And for those of you wondering…Zoey got to try silvervine, too…she’ll show you later this week.

  2. Oh wow! Dudes!!!!! I sure hope you have a bag of cheetos nearby for when the munchies hit….

  3. Looks like you had a blast with the silvervine stuff. I haven’t tried it… YET… but I hear it’s the best. Sweet dreams as you sleep it off.

  4. now all you need is some grateful dead music.

  11. Woohoo that sure seams to be great stuff that Silvervine !

  12. Glad you like your silvervine boys. Oddly enough, we are not completely overwhelmed by the stuff – we like ‘nip better.

  13. We’ve never heard of that stuff–but it sounds pretty good!

  14. That’s the way it goes. Start off with just a quick sniff of the soft stuff and then before you know it you’re mainlining!!!

  15. Didja dribble like mad? That stuff sets off a TORRENT of drool in Rupert.

  16. Mom ordered some silvervine sticks for us and it came the other day. Very fast service! She hasn’t given it to us yet. We think she’s worried, like your mom, that an intervention may be warranted.

  17. Ernie and Wally
    I think I need one of those for Mom. She has a terrible time sleeping looks like this might do the trick.

  40. Isn’t’ it pawsome? We loooove ours too!

  41. WOW, that silvervine *does* look like da bomb! 🙂

  42. We have been researchin that silver vine stuff. An TBT says he can get some in the USA. As soon as he confirms that, we will spread the news.

  43. Hi guys. How ya doin’? All recovered now? Can’t wait to see Zoey!

  44. Oh my! Wonder if I would react to it. I don’t have any reaction to the regular one.

  45. We can’t believe we missed this post! We’re so happy you finally got your P-Low and yup, silvervine sure is the best. Those are great pictures! And it’s likely you’ll never go back to catnip. Hahahaha.

  46. You two are too funny! Great post!
