    The second frame could also read “It sounds like a dying animal screaming in pain and agony”

    Plenty of cats play with toys. My cat a long time ago had a toy rat which he would play with and “catch”, only to bring it to me to present as a prize. Thank you for bringing me a dirty toy you’ve been chewing on. But if I threw it back, he would resume playing and when the hunt was done either he would bring it to his bed to sleep with, or bring it to me. Only thing was when he had the thing in his mouth and he started yelling about it, it sounded like the cat was choking and dying. I told my wife the first time it happened it scared the shit out of me. I came running to save the cat, only for it to sheepishly look at me what my problem was. She laughed at first, till a few days later it happened to her. She went running to save him and then couldn’t stop laughing.

      That hunting scream they do is something else…had a cat that had ONE and only one mouse toy a couple years after he got it, killed it one night triumphantly…then the next night same thing. He’s been killing the same ratty mouse toy with a broken wand for years. You just find it laying somewhere new and knew he got it again.

      Usually he could get treats out of the deal.

        My cat kills actual mice, then eats the front half of them and leaves the back half on my pillow next to my head while I’m asleep. I’m totally used to this now, but when she first started doing it I would wake up and scream like the movie mogul in The Godfather who finds his favorite horse’s head in his bed.

        She is at least nice enough to lick the back half clean first.

      Mine dragged a mesh bag full of onions out of the kitchen last night and shredded the bag. Onion peel everywhere and he ran up to me this morning making that cute little mew like I know I fucked up but you can see why I did it, Right?

      I use the phrase “nipped to the tits” to describe my cat being high on catnip or me being high on weed

      To everyone reading: Be sure to not smoke weed in front of your cats, THC is toxic for them, and their body can’t break it down, so it will stay in their system forever.

      Catnip is also my secret ingredient in mojitos. It has a mellower flavor that compliments the mint well, and the moderate sedative effects of catnip tea make the rum more effective.

      Ooh. I might have to try this out. My pup Sophie has major social anxiety, never expected catnip to possibly help.

    My dog goes after the catnip filled toys - so all our pets go after the drugs. 🙃
