Just outside the shelter, there is a healthy crop of catnip flourishing in the Spring sunshine.
Volunteers snip a few sprigs for the shelter cats on their way into the building.
There’s a variety of reactions from the cats. Some, like Ducky, enthusiastically approve!
Others, like her sister Diamond, pay no attention.
These pretty three year old bonded tabbies were left behind when their family moved away. A neighbor took care of them for a while, then they came to PAWS.
Handsome Miles happily rolled and rubbed – doing the horizontal nip dance.
Shy Jerry popped up from his nest and grabbed the catnip!
How do your cats feel about nip?
