Skip the Gold and Go For the Silver

Happy Monday everyone and thanks for all the comments you left Joanie and Sammy. They really enjoyed having a turn blogging and I guess I am having a party for them on September 30th. I need to get planning.

I keep reading about silvervine on many of the cat blogs. I have a curious mind and had to get some. I wanted to be sure it was from a good company, but it was hard to find in the U.S.  When I asked at Petco, the clerk looked at me like I had 2 heads. At least Foster and Smith wrote back saying they passed along my suggestion and to keep checking with them.

I finally found a good brand From the Field that was being sold online at Plain Brown Tabby as a mix with catnip: http://www.catniptoys.com/ultimate-blend-silver-vine-mix-5-oz-by-from-the-field/ .It seems to be a hit so far- Joanie stuck her little paw right in the jar: 002003Lucy was in her happy place and 004Sammy was feeling no pain either. It does seem a bit more potent than the catnip alone. I am still curious as to why it is so hard to get. The bag was very full and well worth $5.95, the only bad part is the shipping costs. 001

Have a great day everyone and if you missed yesterday’s post, you are all invited to Joanie and Sammy’s birthday party on September 30th!
