Who typed that? Is that you, Milo?

C’est moi. I always speak French when I’m high. Now excuse me while I pass out.

It’s Milo Spicoli.

Bro, I said French, not Italian.

But I’m a quick study.

Mangiare i miei pantaloncini.

Did Milo just send out for a pizza?

Gail here; That may explain the huge mysterious charges on my Master Card.

@Adirondackwannabe It’s in the Social Section for a reason. It’s all good. This thread has made me laugh out loud. Thank you for the link.

I might have to try some. :)

@Adirondackwannabe Does that mean I’m an enabler?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Oh crap, you are. You’re the catnip whisperer.

Don’t bogie that ‘nip, man!

Milo again; “Psychosexual response, euphoria, excitement, happy stares, relaxation, dopiness, or crazy running-around.” That pretty much covers it, although I now find myself crying uncontrollably over the news of Auggie’s departure. I have been blowing my nose so hard it has turned pink.

Milo, why don’t you comfort yourself by shredding something Gail holds dear?

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@gailcalled It’s a good move for her. She gets salary and benefits. Life will go on for us. We’ll just have to deal with it.

My cat is totally immune to catnip, but he goes crazy for underarm deodorant and muscle balm. Weird.

My sisters son is a dick. I was asleep on the couch one day and he slipped some catnip under my shirt and placed the cat on my chest. I hope I am the only person here that has actually punched a cat in the face.

@Pachy – My two love catnip, and one is very intrigued by the bag that hold my BenGay patch. I’m in a Tuxedo Cat group on Facebook, and we discussed the things that our kitties are attracted to, and others also mentioned the muscle balm.

Here is Thor Spicoli in the catnip patch we grew in the yard last summer.

@hearkat: Milo here: There’s a Tuxedo Cat group on Facebook and no one invited me?

hearkat's avatar

@Milo – I have sent @gailcalled your invitation.

Coloma's avatar

Not all cats go crazy for a nip of the nip.
My male Ragdoll loves the stuff, my female Siamese is uninterested.
Me?
I really enjoy a little herbal essence at times.

Makes me playful and creative, dangle a ribbon in front of me and I’ll pounce on it. haha

Cocaine for cats? Do cats get addicted to catnip?

gailcalled's avatar

@hearkat; Milo here:No invitation yet on Gail’s FB page. Was she blackballed? Typical. I can’t take her anywhere.

hearkat's avatar

@Milo – I’ve only added one other feline and her person, and that went without a hitch. I’ll try again, and send @gailcalled a note on FB. Ask her to check her privacy settings – I’m not sure whether one can lock down their account so much that Invitations are blocked, though.

gailcalled's avatar

@hearkat;It’s probably all for the good, What I really don’t need is yet another cyber distraction. As it is, I spend way too much time on buzzfeed cats. Cancel the order if it hasn’t gone through, but thank you anyway.
