My Cat Chudley is Addicted to Catnip – It’s His Kitty Marijuana [PICTURES]

Recreational marijuana has been legal in Colorado since January 1st, but kitty pot has been legal for quite some time. I am talking about catnip. My cat Chudley is an addict. He loves the stuff. If he could roll it and smoke it, he would. So, we grew him a couple of his own plants.

Our other cat Morgan could care less. She just thinks her brother is stupid as he convulses in the kitty weed with his eyes rolled up in the back of his head.  He meows the whole time. It’s like he is say, “Seriously, have you guys tried this stuff?’ Then he eats it, mellows out and goes inside to sleep it off.

Please don’t judge poor Chudley.  Catnip addiction is a disease.  We are trying to get him on a 12-step program.

WHY DO CATS FLIP OUT ON CATNIP?

According to the Humane Society:

Researchers aren’t sure what the neurological explanation is, but it’s thought that catnip mimics feline “happy” pheromones and stimulates the receptors in the brain that respond to those pheromones. When eaten, however, catnip seems to have the opposite effect: the cat may become very mellow.
