That is a catnip plant that Kiara is lying next to. Kiara really loves the nip and sometimes she overdoes it. When her Mom had Meeko for about a year, she was worried that Meeko was lonely, so she went to an adoption fair at a pet store and found Kiara. She liked her very much and brought Meeko into the store to meet her. They seemed to like each other, so the Mom brought Kiara home the very next day. That's when the trouble started. It wasn't too bad, but Meeko liked to start a fight with Kiara to remind her who was there first. They have calmed way down, but Meeko still occasionally pounces Kiara. As you can see, Kiara is a very floofy tortie and she has an incredibly floofy tail. She loves her Daddy best. She loves to drink out of the bathroom tap and will actually race her Mom to the bathroom, so she can jump up on the sink and get her drink. Some house guests have been a little perturbed when Kiara has followed them into the bathroom and demanded a drink from the sink. Kiara is eight years old now.
Kiara really loves her nip.
It sends her on a little trip
To doze and dream
Of a lovely scheme
To get a lifetime supply of nip.
