Catnip postcard for my cats

From Dr Purrington's Cat Toy Laboratory

A wonderful, astute new blog reader send me this absolutely fabulous postcard for my cats! It is a handmade wonder "From Dr Purrington's Cat Toy Laboratory." This catnip-infused postcard has a catnip-infused piece of red yarn sticking out of it. That's what's underneath the piece of tape with the little paw/yarn drawing on it.

Catnip postcard, for my cats

I don't know which I love more, the fact that his cats sent it to my cats, or that his cats are named Fleabane and Danderfluff. Best cat names EVER!

Magic meets the catnip postcard

Some of my correspondents who read my blog mention that they didn't even know I HAD a tabby cat named Magic, because she appears on this blog the least. She is rather shy, and she also does not insert herself into my letter-writing process as Soda and Memo often do. So it was great that Magic was the first one to approach this postcard. (Her track record as a total catnip addict helps. I'm sure she smelled this one coming.)

Yarnfang joy!

I made a whole photo set of her first encounter with this postcard because the series of shots is just so darn cute, but I had to post the two cutest ones here. Dr. Purrington, your postcard has generated much feline fun in this household!


  1. love it the pics of the kittys and the names are awesome too .

  2. Cat+Catnip Infused String=FUN!
    Does she shake her butt before she attacks it?
    Enjoy! =^..^=

  3. Magic really seems to like the thread!
    - Such a nice delivery to your cats! :)

  4. Now that made me smile! Good to see cats getting involved in the incoming mail, too. =)

  5. This was too funny!! I loved it & took a peek at your flickr photos of Magic. Cats are so awesome! I love the postcard too.

    Thanks for sharing!

  6. What a great blog you have! So glad I was introduced to it today! I will definitely be following you! I'm glad to see that I am one of many who still love snail mail. And I love stationery! I'll be checking out the stationery you've shared. Best wishes!

  7. Thanks for your great comments, everyone! I'm glad you liked this post and love hearing your thoughts. I think Magic appreciates the attention, too. :-)

    aplaceforthoughts, so glad you came by! Thanks for the kind words.

  8. That is tooooooo cool! I wonder if he has a site where you can purchase those postcards...Such a neat idea, I wonder if it's possible to do that but infused with something for dogs..? Anyway, Ilona, the photos of Magic are too adorable, really. It's not too often I go 'Awwwww' out loud at photos, haha. <3

  9. I do not think there is an herb for dogs that does what catnip does for cats.
