I actually said it to my child (while backing away from her) when she tried to pet my stomach after I ate a lot of falafels.
Decided it was a good advice if you want to stay on my good side.
Gramma Polly packs quite a pinch.

And now the adventure is done. Kismet is home. Home is good. Home is cozy. Good night.
Devil's coach horse beetle.
British folklore has it that a beetle has eaten the core of Eve's apple, and that a person who crushes such beetle is forgiven seven sins.
Poor beetles! https://www.instagram.com/p/CTNru1QLEpY/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
Catmint - also known as catnip and catsworth.
Male cats tend to like catnip more because the same chemical can be found in a female cat’s urine.
BAM! Apple fell on Kismet's head. How unnecessary that was to prove gravity! Cats knew all about gravity a lot longer than people did. They test it once in a while to make sure it is working properly.
Brambles are lovely to sit in amongst the bees. And also they make a good shelter from the rain.
Plantain, Plantago major, was considered to be one of the nine sacred herbs by the ancient Saxon people, and has been celebrated in Anglo-Saxon poetry as the "mother of herbs." In Russian this plant is called Подорожник - meaning near the roads. Native Americans called it "white man's foot" as it is often found growing along well-trodden foot paths and it was brought to the Americas from Europe. The Latin generic name means "sole of the foot."
When I was a kid, we would use the leaves of this plant for small hurts and scratches. We would spit on the leaves and stick it onto our scratches.
Kismet's countryside adventure. Cattails are wetland plants, typically 3 to 10 feet tall; the average cat tail is 12″ in length.

Only one of them was playing hide and seek...
Every morning Susan took her pet fish for a walk.
The teapot was a great trickster.
"CHOO CHOO" - he sang. "All on board!"
Maude was so full of watermelon and sunshine that she needed a nap. Watermelon rind seemed like a very convenient hammock with a side of a snack.
Dee LOVED hats. She made very elaborate hats for herself and her friends.

Once there was a tree...
