Sometimes you just can’t make this shit up! The AP is reporting that some 20-year-old dude in Omaha, Nebraska was arrested last night for trying to smoke his cat! Allegedly the guy tried to “mellow out his cat” (named Shadow)by stuffing it into a homemade bong and then smoking from it. Well, now he’s facing criminal charges.
Dude told Lancaster County sheriff’s deputies that the cat was all hyper and stuff and that he was just trying to calm her down. Later, the stoned cat was taken to the Capital Humane Society, where she appeared to be in good condition.
Deputies found the cat-filled bong after responding to a domestic disturbance call at the place the cat-smoker shares with his grandfather, Sgt. Andy Stebbing said. They finished up with the dispute, left the house, only to return minutes later after discovering there was an arrest warrant on the suspect for possession of drug paraphernalia. Upon re-entering the house, Stebbing said, deputies saw the suspect smoking marijuana through a piece of garden hose attached to the duct-taped, plastic glass box, in which the cat had been stuffed. “This cat was just dazed,” Stebbing said. “She was on the front seat of the cop car, wrapped in a blanket, and never moved all the way to the humane society.” The suspect was cited for misdemeanor animal cruelty and taken to the Lancaster County Jail on the arrest warrant. He was released after paying a $400 fine.
