This is just awesome. Ad white-tailed Deer to the numerous list of Animals that do drugs in the wild. Honestly, this looks like anyone could get high on decomposing leaves. Maybe the reason playing in the leaves is so fun for kids is because you are getting high as balls on laughing gas while you are doing it. I will be kicking leave piles in the future, trying to get some fumes to get that pre-wisdom teeth vibes. This is definitely one of the new animal facts in my repertoire, and I will be whipping it out at all times. Drug use in the animal kingdom really fascinates me because so many animals do it. Jaguars have been getting high on ayahuasca like its catnip.
Dolphins have figured out how to use pufferfish poison to get high.
Former interns get high by eating Pardon My Cheesesteaks.
Catnip is nuts because it's literally a hardcore drug for cats. Seriously, checkout what my robot slave has to say about catnip:
Catnip is a plant that belongs to the mint family, and it is known for its ability to cause a strong reaction in cats. When cats smell or ingest catnip, they may become very excited and playful, rolling around, rubbing their faces on the plant, and even vocalizing. This reaction is caused by a chemical in catnip called nepetalactone, which binds to receptors in the cat's nose and causes a response in the brain.
The reaction to catnip is not the same for all cats, however. In fact, only about two-thirds of cats are sensitive to catnip at all. Those cats that are sensitive to catnip may have a strong reaction the first time they encounter it, but their response may become less intense with repeated exposure. Additionally, kittens and older cats are less likely to respond to catnip than adult cats.
The reaction to catnip is also temporary, lasting only about 10 to 15 minutes. After this time, the cat will lose interest in the catnip and may even become somewhat lethargic. The cat will then need to wait several hours before it can respond to catnip again.
In addition to causing a temporary change in behavior, catnip may also have some other effects on cats. For example, some cat owners have reported that catnip can help to calm anxious or stressed cats. Additionally, catnip has been shown to have some mild sedative effects, which may help cats to relax and sleep more soundly.
Overall, catnip has a strong effect on many cats, causing them to become playful and excited. However, not all cats are sensitive to catnip, and the effect is temporary. While catnip may have some additional benefits for cats, it is not a necessary part of a cat's diet and should be used in moderation.
Next Extradosing Donny and I are smoking catnip to see if it has any real effects on humans, In the meantime, I will be kicking leaf piles to get as high as these deer
