Poll and Photo About Catnip, Cats, and Gardens

Do You Garden For a Pet?

A good friend of mine plants catnip for her kitty Sylvester. Apparently the calico goes crazy for the harvested plant — unlike the kitty in the picture, he's an indoors cat who rarely makes it to the garden patch to pick his own catnip. While not exactly a pet, other friends have planted specific flowering plants to change the quality of the honey produced by their beehives. How about you? Have you ever planted anything to benefit an animal in your life?

I planted some special bushes and flowering plants that the bees just love, turmpet vine-butterfly bush-honeysuckle (got a Robin nest in that one ) Oak tree for the acorns I now have a yard full of squirrels. Thought I was planting the grapes for me but the japanese beetles beat me. And all the birds like my strawberries and the rabbits love my beans. So yes I guess you could say I plant so the animals can enjoy.

I plant catnip and cat grass, but my kitties are diggers so they usually destroy them as soon as they grow. I also sprout peas and lentils for my pigeon.
