People and Furry People who like The Leader Otis,
It’s Thomas. Sooooo… I’ve been making some trips downstairs during the daylight recently, but I’ve been a little bit shocked sometimes by what I find. For instance, I went downstairs yesterday and peeked out into the place The Leader calls His “Outdoor Domain.” I saw both The Leader and Brother Oliver out there, and they seemed to be be laying down and alternating between laughing and moaning. I am familiar with the state they were in. I believe it is called “incatnipacitation”. As I was looking at the two nip heads, I heard a voice say, “Hey Kid! Can you get me some of that nip!?” I looked up and saw Mama Cat on the other side of the wire.
Mama startled me, so I did what I always do when I am startled. I high-tailed it back upstairs to my den in Kitty Valhalla. I have a window up there that looks right out over the backyard though, so I saw what happened next. One of the Guardians appeared and offered Mama a nip leaf.
Mama eagerly ingested the nip. She then stood for a moment as if she was waiting to feel the effects.
After about 30 seconds, Mama looked back up and said, “More please!” To the Guardians, I know this just sounded like a meow, but I get the sense that they do understand at least a little Catonese.
Personally, I don’t think it was wise for Mama Cat to have another leaf. Clearly, she’s older than me and probably has more experience with this sort of thing, but when the Guardians offered her another leaf it almost looked like Mama had gone a little cross-eyed as she accepted it.
After taking and eating the second leaf, Mama headed back to her bed in her toasty shack. It wasn’t long before she drifted off to sleep. Leader O and Brother O were still in the grips of a serious nip-trip out in the enclosure, so there was really nothing else to see out there. I decided to retire to my cubby for the day. When I woke up several hours later, The Leader and Brother O were no longer in the Outdoor Domain, and I heard a lot of noise downstairs. It sounded like two cats lapping eagerly from a water bowl.
