Does Fluffy have her medical card?

Funny tidbit from my last week of working --

Very old kitty arrives with chronic, end-stage kidney failure.  The client, who is very sweet, but slightly crazy informs me that she's been feeding her cat catnip. "It's just like medicinal marijuana," she says. 

Sure. Nepeta cataria (catnip) and Cannabis sativa (marijuana).  Totally the same.  Maybe pot-heads can just start rolling catnip and save some money.

  1. Hahahaha! Hmmmm, maybe her theory has some merit? ;-) Our old cat used to just lie on top of my mom's catnip plant and sleep... and he did have an obsession with eating...
