Easter Nipsters (videos)

I got chocolate but the kitties got some catnip this morning.  It is a beautiful day and no wind to blow away the nip so these three kitties had a good time.

Here's Jazz enjoying his Easter treat

This is Spirit rolling in the nip

And little Ollie who really got into the joy of her nip fix

Of the three kitties, ollie was the one who enjoyed it the most.  I stayed with her for over 20 minutes as she rolled and wiggled in the nip.

First kiss

Over the past two weeks Ollie has discovered just how wonderful it feels to have her head rubbed by a human.  Each day she has loved the attention more and more to the point that if I stop petting her she head butts my hand with her head.  I'm over the moon.  It has taken 13 years for Ollie to get to this point.  I've been able to get very close to her for a long time but touching was not allowed.  I can scratch her head behind her ears and run my hand along her back and tail and she very happy to let me do this.

Now every feeding, both a.m. and p.m. Ollie gets head rubs.  She loves this attention.  Today, though was made just a little bit more special.  I got to kiss the top of her wee head.  Wow.  It has taken patience and persistence.
