I'm always amazed when I hear about cats that don't like catnip though I've
read about them before.. Smile This litter that Lola and Lulu came from have
always loved it. They were group of feral kittens the local shelter found,
luckily they survived after their mother was killed.

We have a lot of coyotes around here.. you can here them howling some nights.
The shelter found the kittens and we adopted the whole litter. Leo was hit by
a car a few years ago... he was the only male.. Lizzie (named after Lizzie
Borden the shelter told us <lol>) moved in with a neighbor of our when we lived
in Windsor, NY.
