Seven month old Delta is a shy tiger girl. She needed a shelter mentor and she found one in Cat Room #5 at PAWS.
Recently we won a generous selection of Valerian stuffed toys by entering a contest held by the charming and stunning kitty blogger, Cathy Keisha. They were made by the Bavarian Cat Toy company.
What’s in valerian, you might ask?
Wikipedia‘s answer: “Actinidine is a pyridine derivative found in the essential oil of valerian root and silver vine. Actinidine is a cat attractant, with effects like those of nepetalactone, the active compound found in catnip.”
Or, if you ask Miss Piggy at PAWS, it’s pure stinky bliss.
When it was time to paint a picture for the wall nesting box in Cat Room #5
at PAWS, I decided to create one that would celebrate black cats.
