Curious about soap suds

One thing about working in a shelter, you never lack for company! Today while I was washing out litterboxes, I reached for the soap, and felt something small, round and fuzzy. I turned around and there was a little black kitten with suds on her head! She shook her head and watched the bubbles float through the air!

Has anyone played with their kittens with bubbles? Seems like she was helping herself.

Soap Suds will give them the runs in large amounts. I don't know how much they'd have to eat though.

When I wash dishes by hand (rarely happens) I always blow some bubbles off my fingers for the cats. Neelix experienced this for the first time a few days ago and he went BONKERS. He was having a blast chasing them all over the kitchen floor.

I can just see Neelix doing this!

They sell catnip infused bubbles in a bottle (like the blowing bubbles for kids). I think i'll check Petco. Tonight for them.

He started showing interest in catnip last week. He had his first hit, so I think he'll doubly enjoy the bubbles.

Yes! When they are all nipped up they are way more pliable. It makes my life easier.

That's why there is a constant supply available to them. In fact, I'd have them all with a little wheelie IV of it, if I could.

I just gotta ask! Have you tried the catnip bubble blower yet?!

Haven't found one locally yet. I'll try the mom and pop store next week. I'm disappointed petco didn't have it.

I bought one AGES ago and Book was terrified of the bubbles.... MowMow just wasn't interested in them. I don't remember tossing it but I can't find it....

Wow, is Neelix already affected by catnip? I don't recall how old he is, but I don't think G was affected much until about 6 months in age. Maya just eats them. I'm curious about the bubbles, too! If it's a hit with your fuzzies, I may also have to try it out! My kitties are getting lazy!
