To celebrate our anniversary, I talked J. into buying a long, 3-person swing for the backyard (ya know, so we can sit together)…anyway after 4 hours of putting it together, it was very dark. I tested it out with my son while my daughter took a bubble bath to clean all the grime away from playing on the new slip and slide and then going in the sandbox. After the kids were in bed, J. and I went outside to sit together for a bit under a blanket. Always wary of the mosquitos, I put on some all natural bug repellent that I bought from Tropical Traditions.
After we came in, the cats were acting really strange and following me around. I knew they had fresh food and water so I thought maybe one of them had pooped and was being picky and wanting me to clean the litter. After I cleaned up the litter box, I sat down to check my email. Then I felt the licking…and the rubbing… the cats were licking my arms and rubbing against me, flipping back and forth on the carpet.
Lightbulb finally went off- I checked the label. “All natural” means some coconut oil with essential oils in it. CATNIP essential oil being one of them. My cats were getting high off my lotion!
