I have a burgeoning crop of organic free-growing catnip that is in need of a cut-back so it will not interfere with parking and pedestrian traffic past my back yard. If you need some biochemical weaponry to put your cats into La-La-Land while you wargame, let me know--I can bring quite a bit. No pesticides or chemicals have been applied to the 'nip. Can also be used as an herbal tea--it is a form of mint, ya know.
And it's _free_!
All I ask is a head's-up to know how much to bring.

Very nice of you to offer! If I was coming I woulda definitely got my kitties hooked up! But alas, we won't be there.

My cat has put me on suspension for 90 days. I am only allowed to leave the house for work and the procurement of cat treats. My attending Historic on is therefore impussable.

I've got 6 cats and I'm coming. Now I just need to know how to hook up with the kitty drug dealer.

Step One: Don't announce on an internet forum you're buying drugs.

I just got my Hannibal clean. He kept holding up liquor stores. No way!

That's easy--I'll be the short, round, balding, bearded guy with an obnoxious t-shirt and cargo shorts. ;D

Let's see about 25% of convention goers will be short,95% round, 50-50 on the balding, whether a t-shirt is obnoxious is in the eye of the beholder and cargo shorts will be universal. You'll be real easy to find.

Are you talking cut catnip or uprooted and ready to plant? I am looking to get a patch planted and would be willing to pay for a plastic pot and potting soil.

LOL I got 6 cats.
Spread a small bag of the stuff on a large carpet.
They all set even spaces apart around the carpet enjoying the nip each with their little cartels.
All the drug lords were good till one got s little to close to a border of a neighboring cartel.
Drug war ensued, angers flared and we are now in a drug free zone.

Thanks for the offer, but we grow our own :)

I was planning on bringing some fresh cut and some already dried (with lots of seedtops), but I can _try_ to bring a couple of plantings. My Thumb of Botanical Holocaust may interfere with the success of that, however.

If Capncarp's Thumb of Botanical Holocaust strikes death to the catnip, you can come to my house in Lancaster and dig yourself some of ours. We don't have cats (of our own), just the plant. And everyone else's cats.

I'll be the tall, bald, beginning-to-round-at the belly guy with a beard. No t-shirt or cargo shorts. NOTE: I will be wearing SOMETHING, though -- never fear! evil grin At the very least I'll wear a battered greenish felt hat with a 1-cm rawhide band. So you won't be able to tell that I'm bald.
