Salad Days

As you may be aware, we have had some high grade 'nip from Finland (South), which has caused many pink flying mousies to be seen on the catio.
But Äiti was rather amazed when I decided that Tessi-kilpikonna's kiinankaali  (Chinese leaf) was also worthy of some attention.
It had a fresh clean surface, so needed to be chin-rubbed.
It was chewy.
 And perhaps it made me a little hyper.
Hmmmm, it smelt so good.
Seriously good stuff.
Time for a little wash.
Okay, enough of the camera.
And in case you are all laughing, as Pekka-poika has meanly suggested you might be, don't knock it til you have tried it. That oriental stuff is cool. And it doesn't give you the munchies so badly as nip does! It's just sooo nice.

Äiti's note: I think it must have been an early encounter with a brussel sprout which has given Punapippuri a strange connection with leaf vegetables. He actually has little response to kissanminttu: seems that maybe he's a cabbage-head.

Rumbles here - I love lettuce too! I steal it from the kitchen any time I can!

We loved the photo of your tongue rubbing the lettuce on your nose. So, the Oriental stash is the best, eh? Interesting.

Cabbage huh? I'm not that big of a fan but then again, this leaves more fishy flakes for me!

My human loves Brussels Sprouts - maybe I should ask her to share. I wonder if it has similar properties.

Nice treats you've got! :)

Hmm, wonder if I can get the fridge door open and the lettuce out.

Aren't you having just the very best time! Are you just chewing the Leaves or swallowing them? You looks adorable!
Some of us tend to get a bit, ahem, nasty, on kissanminttu. Maybe we'd enjoy a little leaf.
