Cat Dives into Mom's Catnip Plant

  • When Maggie the cat discovered her mom’s catnip plant, she just couldn’t resist.
  • She dove right into it and rolled around in it!
  • She has since claimed the plant box as her personal haven, preventing the rest of her cat siblings from getting a taste of the catnip.

Anna Yvette Hoffman has quite a lively household.

They have eight cats, two dogs, two potbellied pigs, and a bird.

So they are constantly trying to make their house more animal-friendly. Recently, Anna decided to try growing some catnip to satisfy their many cats.

Anna told The Dodo, “I had never done it before so I took special care in following the instructions I found online. The important part I was looking forward to was when it flowered. Apparently that is when I would harvest the plant and hang it up to dry before giving it to the cats.”

To make sure the animals won’t curiously wander into her plants, Anna grows them in boxes along her fence.

Maggie the cat, however, especially loves exploring outside and playing with her best friends, Albert and Charlotte the pigs.

Anna shared, “She spends her time lying with Charlotte and Albert while they graze. On really hot days she chooses a shady spot where she can still see her BFFs.”

On one particular day of adventure, Maggie stumbled upon her mom’s catnip plant.

So she decided to dive right into it and roll around in it!

Anna recalled, “I was in the kitchen washing dishes and when I looked out the window, I saw Maggie in the catnip pot. I was already laughing hysterically. Maggie really was living her best life at that moment.”

 

“I wasn’t upset by any means: I was simply shocked and tickled at the same time,” she shared.

The plant itself was in danger of being completely crushed, however. But Maggie could not be convinced to get out of the plant box until it was too late.

“When Maggie had gotten her fill, she rolled out of the pot and onto the ground. She then proceeded to roll around in her grassy paradise,” Anna shared.

 

Maggie has since claimed the catnip plant box as her favorite spot outside.

The rest of the cats will not be able to partake in the dried catnip anymore, unfortunately.

“The plants are beyond saving. I just let her do her thing while the plants struggle in a downward motion trying to grow but drowning in Maggie’s joy,” Anna shared.
