Mail Call for Cosmo

Recently I received a package in the mail from my aunt & uncle. I love getting packages from them - the boxes are covered with stickers that make the mailman laugh, and there are always surprise goodies inside.

This time, in addition to books and some other things just for me (sometimes Oldtimer gets candy), there was a bundle of homegrown catnip, just for Cosmo. They were wondering if he would like it as much as their outdoor cats, though their indoor cats aren't interested. See what you think.
He found it on his own - no encouragement from me.
He rubbed his face on it.
He began to chew...
...and knead.


At this point, I tried to move it back on the desk. See the possessed look in his eye? I should have posted a photo of the scratches I received for my efforts.
The first things to go were the flower heads, but now he's working on the stripped down stalks.
Wearing out?
Maybe...but don't you try to take it!
Blissful exhaustion.

I grew it in my garden and my old cat adored me for doing that- she would take up space--big space and cover the patch completely and heaven help me if I told her it was time to go inside even if I tried to bribe her by taking some off her uncovered areas I got told off every time
