Wordy Wednesday.

We are not used to the very hot weather in the UK so it is very important to keep well hydrated.
These purple flowers are supposed to be cat nip. That is what it said on the seed packet, well, as a nip connoisseur I can tell you it is not the real thing. It does absolutely nothing for me, growing or dried and the people who said it is nip don't know what they are talking about. The bees seem to like it though.
I had a couple of comments in my last post asking why dad lent some straw to his friend then had it back again two days later. His friend wanted to take some people on a tour of his fields on his farm trailer but he only has big round bales so dad lent him some of his small bales for the people to sit on. Trouble was that their stinky cats sat on it too.
I am sorry I have not been commenting for the past two weeks, the reason being that I have been in lock up while the Beans were off gallivanting again. We decided against putting it on the blog as the last twice there were introoders snooping about while they were gone. It was okay though because our neighbour sent them packing. It was probably just coincidence but they decided not to advertise the fact that they were away and mum scheduled some posts for me. I will try and get back to normal and start visiting all my friends again.
Thank you all for the blogoversary wishes too.

It's very smart to stay hydrated. Nice to meet you too! Me-Ommmmm

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

That's a nice watering hole!
I thought nip was green.. Does it flower then get green and kitty attracting?

The Whiskeratti said...

How did we miss your blogoversary?? Happy B Day! We are so glad you are still posting. Pawhugs.

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Sounds like that plant is more bee nip than catnip! I think your humans are smart not saying they were out of town until after the fact. My human doesn't like to advertise when she leaves town, even though there is always someone here when either she or her boyfriend (or the both of them) are away.

William said...

Sparkle just took the meows right out of my mouth with 'bee nip'!

Prancer Pie said...

Very smart on both counts! My peeps never say they have been anywhere til afterwards. Stay cool and hydrated during those "hots"! XOXO

Derby, Ducky said...

Good idea not to let the introoders types know your beans are gone.

The Island Cats said...

That is one big water dish, Flynn! Make sure you get your fill!

Team Tabby said...

We like your water dish Flynn, looks very big, sturdy and not tip-able! Your catnip flowers are very purdy, but it's all about the nip flavor, right?

We planted a whole package of seeds too, and have just one sorry plant. We're purring that it survives.

Intruders? And neighbours' cats sittin' on YOUR hay? AND imposters posin' as the nip? What's happenin' over there? Has the world gone mad? Gosh... I had better send you some purrs, ASAP.

Purrs,
Nissy

Angel and Kirby said...

It is probably wise not to say when mom and Dad are gone! Stay cool!

Katie and Glogirly said...

We're finally getting a little relief from the hots here...stay cool Flynn.

I don't know that I'd trust that crazy flowery nip either!
; ) Katie

Cheysuli and gemini said...

How horrible to think that people were reading your blog to snoop around and maybe do something bad! I am glad that they are back and you are no longer locked up! I shall enjoy seeing where they might send me next!

Our heatwave just broke and not a moment too soon. Hope your holiday was lovely and I bet Flynn is thrilled you're back!

Marg said...

Hope the Mum and Dad had a good trip. I bet you were so glad to see them Flynn. Hope that heat goes away for ya really soon. Take care.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Flynn we hope you kept cool while your Mum and Dad were away - we love your water bowl and you could always sit in it or have a paddle (best after you've had a drink)!!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Nicola Carpenter said...

It has been hot, hasn't it. we've been sleeping in the shade. The woman has put bowls of water everywhere.

That plant is Cat Mint. Similar to Cat Nip, but not as potent. We used to have some growing on our garden, but Thomas ate it.

Caren Gittleman said...

we think it is smart not to announce when we are gonna be away. I am always amazed at the number of people who announce when they will not be home! Smart thinking!

Bellen said...

That's smart about not advertising about your mum and dad's absences. Criminals are pretty clever when they want to be, though most of them aren't as clever as the police - or thoughtful neighbours.

Yes, stay hydrated, Flynn. I'm always trying to get my cats to drink more water. Come to think of it, I'm kind of thirsty myself now...

Madi and Mom said...

Flynn OMCS what very handsome pics of you with the not NIP!!
Lavender is your color for sure.
We surely understand about your peeps concern and we agree!!! We remembered your Mom saying you were going away so we knew!
Hugs Madi your BFFF

Katie Isabella said...

Dearest Flynn, I am glad your mom and dad got away for awhile and I hope you enjoyed your peaceful times with your sitter helping you out.

YOur parents are right not to say they are leaving. Good on them!

And you my friend, are worth waiting for in visits. xoxoxoxo

Terri said...

That is a neat water bowl. We don't think that plant is catnip, either. Maybe another mint relative--it's a big family.

Best not to divulge too much on the internet. Some humans are just bad and look for opportunities like a vacation, wedding, or funeral :(

The small bales are just so much handier, aren't they?

Glad your parents are back and normal life has been restored, Flynn!

Purrs,

SuziQCat said...

We love water from bird baths too! Stay cool Flynn!

colehauscats said...

That's a nifty-looking waterbowl! And yeah, those catnip flowers? Our mom grew some; didn't do anything for us either. Maybe it should be called bee-nip! Purrs...

ABBY said...

Flynn we thought the purple flowers were very pretty, but we can see that is NO catnip. We hope your pawrents had a great time while away,but we are sorry there were anyone snoopin while they were gone before. We are glad nothing happened.

meowmeowmans said...

Sorry those seeds turned into NOT nip, Flynn. Very pretty flowers, though. :)

We are sorry about the hot weather there. Please stay cool and drink lots of water.

Good thinking about your Mum and Dad not posting that they were away. Safer that way!

Jacqueline said...

Happy Belated Blogoversary, daring boy!...Sorry about the nip, but we have plenty and would love to share with you anytime, sweetheart!...Hope your parents had a wonderful holiday...Happy hump, day, sweet friend=we love you, handsome Flynnie!...xoox....Calle, Halle, Sukki, Mommy Cat, Daddy Cat

Tillie and Georgia said...

We really like your water dish!!!
Good that your folks are home and smart that they did not let on they were away ;)

Meg & Quill said...

That's smart Mom doesn't report we are alone till she's back for the same reason.

Shaggy and Scout said...

Too bad those aren't nip but what beautiful pictures of you. The lavender flowers accent your orangeness so nicely!

Kari said...

World gone mad, isn't it. Glad you were safe and all is well at your home. Will your beans show us photos of their adventures? We love to see them! Of course we want to see your sweet face most of all, precious love.

Kari said...

P.S. Your photos are marvelous! The purple and orange colours are very striking together. XXX-OOO

We are said...

Don't worry about not being able to comment, Flynn. We haven't been able to either lately because the mom has been busy moving - packing, unpacking, etc.

Glad you're back!

Laila and Minchie said...

We are glad to see you are staying hydrated, Flynn! Mom's nephew is leaving next month to study for a semester in your country. He will be in Cambridge. Hopefully it will cool off before then.

Kjelle Bus said...

Have been really hot over here too , but today it came some rain so the worst is gone :)
Smart of your mom to not tell that they where out and gallivanting again !
Don´t wan´t any theif coming and catnap you :)
XOXO

angelswhisper2011 said...

OMC intruders are the worse..maybe they also took the smell of the catnip. You keep on drinking with these hot days. Pawkisses for the weekend :)

Kitties Blue said...

Our mom has always tried to not advertise being away on the blog 'cause she's afraid of what you mentioned. Who knows what kind of sneaky, bad people might come calling while your humans are away! Sorry somebody sold you all fake catnip. That is just so, so wrong. Maybe the next time your humans go shopping for it, they should take you along.
