Our Poly--too much catnip

This is our Poly...she is a Polydactyl Cat..i.e. Mitten Cat or Hemingway's Cat, She has 6 toes on each paw. When my Mother was moving from her house in Brown County, there were kittens under the porch, my Mom did not want to leave until they were safe. My sister crawled under the porch and got them. They were very wild. I took two and kept them upstairs in a room and slowly(it took 6 months) tamed them. I love them dearly, Poly is one and Stoner(my maiden name) is the other. They are very special and boy do they love the catnip!!

It is no wonder that long ago Farmers knew to plant the catnip around the fields, thus keeping the rats away, because the cats would hang out!!

I spread catnip out for Happy Hour for the Cats..here is Poly enjoying it!
