I tried to make Mr. Bowie go to rehab but he said, ‘No, no, no.’ Mr. Bowie, you made me think of Robert De Niro in Sergio Leone’s epic crime drama film Once Upon A Time in America, which begins and ends in a Chinese opium den. The last shot of the movie is of Robert De Niro in a smiling, opium-soaked high.


Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Bowie’s a catnip junkie
Strung out in heaven’s high
Hitting an all-time low

“Ashes to Ashes” – David Bowie

Okay, we’re all guilty of judging and criticizing cats. Guess it’s a negative trait of human nature. Fact: there are many humans who are addicted to dark chocolate and do not acknowledge their own addiction.

  1. I had a friend who used to put a piece of dark chocolate in his espresso. Perhaps you’e already tried that? Or perhaps it would put you in a trance like De Niro or Mr. Bowie, haha!

  2. Mmmm…and who might the dark chocolate addict be? Think we can guess. Our Mom is one as well, but she freely admits it. In fact just today, she got a t-shirt in the mail that says on the front, “CHOCOLOCO Always crazy for chocolate. Chocolate was even used to dye it. Hope she doesn’t try to eat herself. Mr. B. does look quite nipped up in his photo. As long as he’s not mean when he’s on the nip, we think it’s probably okay!

  3. Now Herman, you talk like a love of catnip is a bad thing……you just need to reset you perception and look at it from a cat’s point of view….on your side, eyes half closed……there you go…..

  4. i don’t think rehab is required. Addiction interferes with your life. Now catnip and valerian, dark chocolate, fine wine, and espresso they enhance it. And, they are all quite legal. Go fix yourself one or more of those Herman, Mr. Bowie will be fine.

  5. One of life’s sweetest sights is a cat stoned out of his gourd.

    The first time I gave Mr. Ferguson catnip, he slid head first off the cat tree, jumped back up and did it again.

  6. It has been said that the faults we notice and dislike in others tend to be the same ones we dislike in ourselves. 🙂
