Thankful Thursday - Faith Boomerang & Catmint

Hi everyone, Faith Boomerang here with a Thankful Thursday report.

I am thankful for the huge catmint plant growing on Mommy's bedroom window.
We've got pots of several kinds of yummy grasses on the windowsill.
And one day she brought home a tiny little plant.
She said it was called catmint and it has a euphoric effect on us cats.
She said it is also used in herbal teas as a sedative for hoomans.

But the best thing is it keeps the bugs away from the kitty grass.
An extract from this pretty plant is being used as a natural insect repellant.
And it is a hardy plant, cause it has survived months of Mommy ML's neglect special kind of care.

The room has a western exposure, so it gets tons of afternoon sun.
I love to come sit in the shade under this yummy smelling plant and nap.
I guess it is euphoric, that's why mine dreams are so happy in here.
Love & Purrs,
Faith Boomerang

You are very lucky your mom can grow things. I always kill live plants whether they are indoors or outdoors.

My human kills any plant indoors - that is HER special talent!

Marg said...

That is a very healthy looking plant for sure. We have one like that outside. Now we might put one inside. Take care and have a fun day.

With our mum plants take pot luck -they are either drowned or left waterless - there's never a happy medium.
