Major Catnip Bust Rocks Local Community
The DEA announced that, in partnership with local law enforcement, the agency has successfully closed a six month investigation into major catnip trafficking syndicate based in the small town of Gibbs Falls, North Dakota. The operation ended with 12 arrests and the seizure of over 2,000 pounds of catnip. Street value: $1.4 million.
“We’re happy to get all that nip off the streets,” said agent Monica Payne, who lead the undercover operation, posing for months as a catnip buyer.
The cats involved in the ring were importing the illicit substance through Canada. Most of it was destined for Midwestern cities like Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago and Detroit. But what made this ring so dangerous, said Payne, was that they were also “cooking” the catnip into a highly additive designer drug known on the street as “scratch.”
“Scratch has ruined a lot of lives,” said Payne. “And cats only get nine.”
Both Gertrude and The Muffin Man (aka Muffy) are gone (picture from 2011), but sometimes, when I look to my left from my computer, out of the corner of my eye it seems like they are still there under the window. But alas! They are not, it is just a wisp of cat hair floating by.
I can not imagine a life without cats!
Noel is trying to catch up on her blog reading. It has become so difficult to post 365 days per year and still read all the blog posts of her cyberfriends. There must be a better way, but she has just not found it. Seems like all the Reader apps are limited. How do you keep up with your blog reading?
We have 3 tanks in the house. Each one seems to hold a different fascination for Mr. Nine. This is the kitchen tank and it is easy to sit on the counter and watch the fish swim by. Also, the pump is pretty strong so their is a lot of current which makes for a lot of activity. I have found him trying to get into the tanks every once and a while. Not sure what he would do if he actually did. Neither Noel nor Stella hold much interest in the fish.
I can not imagine a life without cats. Happy Caturday.
