If I'm wasting mushrooms on a cat it is going to be baby Bella's and a lovely wine sauce sauté.

We should have a kitty pot party when I get home from work.  The Caturday thread goes up today, after all.

Are you kidding? My cat did that shiat yesterday stone cold sober. He likes to drink out of the faucet.

I have daily visits from several deer who voraciously eat the plants from around my koi pond.  I just found out that one of those plants is mugwort.  It's a mild hallucinogen.  So, as I understand it, there's a herd of deer in the woods behind my house who are always high as f***.

Here's a mama introducing her babies to my yard.

Psilocybin is a tryptamine.  Tryptamines occur naturally in mammal brains.  Maybe cats occasionally overproduce?

Yes, animals do drugs. And they quite enjoy them.

This one is trippin balls.

Give them some valerian root. It totally reeks, but will make most cats go nuts!

Mine like catnip / valerian, are 'meh' about silvervine.

Semi-related:  Either of you know of something that cats can't stand?  There's a neighborhood cat I need to drive off.

Hopefully without having to trap it.  I think it belongs to somebody.  I just want it to hang out somewhere that doesn't set my dogs off, but it really seems to like my front porch right in front of where they lay by the window.

I can't remember -- it's been around 50 years -- but one friend of Timothy Leary went to India. He fell in with some crowd around a religious guy. After a bit, the religious guy got wind of the friend-of-Leary and all the LSD talk. The religious guy went to friend-of-Leary and asked for some LSD. A dose was handed to him but he asked for more. Lots more. Then took it without batting an eye. Friend-of-Leary waited an appropriate amount of time for the drug to kick in and then asked religious-guy what was up. "Nothing at all."  That's been my watch word: there's nothing in the dark that isn't in the light.

Cats are supposed to hate citrus smells, but I've never given mine any citrus to sniff. Maybe you should try to entice it to another part of the yard (if you have one) - like planting catnip somewhere.

I have an inside cat that goes nuts and runs around the house like a crazy kitty in the middle of the night and if you pick him up his eyes are really dilated when he's like that.

I suspect that the dog is slipping him shrooms.

He's an astrophysicist. The majority of the public doesn't want to hear about the flare frequency of T Tauri variables, so he acts as a pundit too. Frequently way outside of his experience and depth.

I would enjoy doing mushrooms with a cat, and Neil Degrasse Tyson.

No. He's an astrophysicist. He wasn't in his field. But since neither are we farkers ever in our field, and the biologist he was interviewing for his science podcast was, maybe we can...

When I was younger, we always said the cats knew when we were trippin because they messed with us. They would dart in and out of view, run between our legs, or up a tree. Now that I older, I realized cats are just weird assholes.
