Stygian Saturdays

Hi! Stygia here. I must apologise to everyone for missing the past two Stygian Saturdays. However, I am back, and today I thought we could talk about some proper ways for a House Panther to utilize a sun-spot. I bet you can come up with a lot more, but here are a few of my favorites:

The sun is a great place to have your portrait taken. Sometimes, I really like hiding my body in my cat condo and letting my face and paws get all warm in the friendly beams. It makes me feel so relaxed and allows my humans to get a very nice "natural" and happy pose:

The sun is a great paw-warming place, of course, but it can also highlight to your humans that you really need to have your claws clipped. This is both a blessing and a curse. I mean, who likes being captured and held against their will while they squeeze paws and then snap at them with metal devices? But those thoughts will not keep my paws out of the sun.

Last, but certainly not least, the sun is a terrific place to enjoy your NIP! The greatest advantage that I find is that the warmth of the sun allows for a quicker release of that lovely scent. If you are a human, then perhaps I could describe it to you as the difference between potpourri sitting in a cold dish versus potpourri sitting in a bowl of water with a candle burning beneath it. It's much better warm! Be sure to get all the catnip through your fur, too.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! If you'd like to see more of me and my sister too, visit us over at T'Abby Normal.

Yes, rolling in the nip is most important to enjoying it properly. Must get it all over and through your furs.

I go outside and I hunt as well, so I do not get my claws clipped (thank the Goddess!)

You are a beautiful black kitty, oh excuse me....panther.

I am black too, all black, and a furr butt (aka long-haired). Is there a panther club or something for us kind?

Mom bean is still trying to learn all the clubs and lingo and links and stuff. There are four of us in the crew so we are trying to help her out with info.
