Ruby and her Nip Pillow. The girl loves the Nip, so much so, we can’t leave her Nip Pillow out 24/7 or it’ll become a soggy, sodden mass of RubySpit, and Ruby becomes…unpredictable. Sometimes she’s lovey, sometimes she just wants to nap, other times, the whapping paws come out and you know who’s apt to be in the way? Mom, that’s who.

Mom’s learning to allow just a little Nip. Not every day. Once or twice a week as a treat, she says, and only under supervision meaning Mom stays close by and is probably reading a book probably not about Nip Addiction but probably ought to be.

Because Nip Addiction could lead to all kinds of things; regretful things. Like sharing heated beds not once, but twice within a week’s time! Oh Ruby, think of your reputation! And with that girl whose tail you bit months ago!

  1. Ruby we didn’t have you down as a “nip head” – please try and curtail your bad habit or you could become an nip addict .
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  2. Aw, Ruby is gorgeous (similar to my Sabre). Sabre it’s utterly nuts about catnip as well, although he doesn’t do the catnip toys well. He mutilates them to get at the catnip inside.

  3. Oh, no, Ruby, we fear for you, for becoming a hardcore addict!

    (BTW, nip makes Nicki really mean, so we don’t get it very often!)

  4. Ruby, there’s nothing better than some good nip! However, Mom tells us that we shouldn’t have it all the time either. To get even, we tell her she can’t have chocolate! 😉

    I think it isn’t fair that your mom limits your nip exposure! The human limits my nip exposure, too. She says I’m a mean drunk 🙁


  7. Ruby, you could not be any more adorable with that nip toy. Mommy wants to scoop you up and give you kisses; though, she understands that might not be advisable. As Mom always says, “Cats are predictably unpredictable,” especially if they are nip addicted. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  8. Oh Ruby mom knows what you mean about soggy and there is something about cat slobber when it dries it makes things stiff as a board.
    Mom used to sew a lot when she had the first family cat, Milky-Way.
    He loved to lick the tissue patter pieces. Mom told me his slobber would
    literally make the tissue paper dissolve into a wrinkled mess
    hugs madi your bFFF

  9. if you don’t talk to your cats about nip, who will? 🙂

  13. That must be one well slobbered on nip pillow! MOL.

  14. Oh Ruby, you are just so cute. Hope fully the Mom lets you have some nip every now and then. Some of us act naughty too under the influence to that silly nip. Great pictures.

  15. Ruby, you and Binga are twins when it comes to being nip heads!

  16. Truffle tends to get a little aggressive with nip, so it’s doled out in small doses around here.

  17. Ruby, there may be a twelve step program for that, but it sounds like your human has it under control.

  18. You and me both Ruby!! It’s a sad state of affairs when ones nip habit is thwarted by the humans!!

  19. Ruby spit? Hmmm, that doesn’t sound half-bad! MOL!

    We love Ruby Tuesdays! XOXOXO

  20. A wet and slobbery nip pillow sounds purrfect to us!
