Catnip (No Milkshakes, Sorry)

Because I don’t want any human intruders in my yard

A short-haired white cat licks its lips against a background of bright blue sky

With thanks to this song by Kelis (raunchiness warning!). Lyrics only here.

My catnip will bring a lost cat to my yard
My neighbor’s boy, who left her in sobs
That’s right, my stoic neighbor
If it works I’ll share my formula.
