New Zealand Cat Swipes Bag of Weed To Bring To Owner

Screen Shot 2014-05-20 at 3.33.45 PMOH HAI! I HAZ U HOOMAN CATNIPZ!

An unnamed woman from the Dunedin, New Zealand neighborhood of Halfway Bush called cops this week to report that her cat had dragged a baggie with about five grams of pot in it onto her back doorstep. While the cat was undoubtedly proud of his haul, his owner wasn’t very pleased and called the cops to deal with the ganja.

Cops in Dunedin, New Zealand – known as one of the more cannabis friendly cities in Kiwi-land – say this is a first for their department. It total, the cops said five grams of pot had a street value of about $100. That’s a little high compared to prices we found in the city a few years ago, but we don’t expect cops to be very accurate when trying to inflate drug bust figures anyway.

    That woman does not deserve that cat.

    This cat is clearly being wasted on his owner.

    Lady calls cops? Cat’s out the bag now.

    Best. Cat. Ever. Too bad that lady is a square.

      That was my first reaction, too.

      On the other hand, call me square, but I’d be reluctant to smoke up a big ol’ bowl of unknown provenance. It’s not that I don’t trust the cat’s judgment, but I don’t trust the cat’s judgment.

    In fairness, if a sociopathic murder machine whose primary hobbies include torturing others to death were to try and give me drugs, I’d probably buckle and call the cops too. I don’t need some cat thinking I owe them for bringing me skunk weed.

    Weren’t we just talking about cats being assholes? You guys seem to forget this crime has a victim: the original owner of the bag. Now he’s short, and he’s got to come out of pocket on that-nice dickmove, cat. He probably peed on the guy’s shoes on the way out.

      As lifelong cat owner, I can confirm that cats are indeed raging assholes, and that is part of their perverse charm. They’re essentially mini versions of Big Cats. Everything but their ego has been miniaturized. One can only truly appreciate this by owning both dogs and cats. One is actually domesticated and the other one has just found a convenient arrangement with curious hairless monkeys.

        Ya, we had this talk about “catatude” on that article about the bobcat. It seems like cats leave the house each day like an eight year old kid runs away from home -“You won’t have me to kick around anymore!”, and around lunch time, they realize that mouse and grasshopper isn’t all that filling, and all that hunting is interfering with nap time, so they head on back thinking “Tomorrow. Tomorrow I will kill an extra bird so I can get a nap.” but it never works out.

        I read a national geographic article that says cats are the only animal that mankind didn’t actively domesticate. They just started hanging out. They probably don’t taste that good, so they were not in much danger around us. After a while, we noticed less mice and rats, and the rest is made up history.
