I actually was signing off for the night, and as the movie was rolling the opening credits, it hit me about this question (don’t even ask why a movie’s opening and this thread are related…..I have no idea). But, I forgot to bring this up.
Anyway, I have four indoor cats (God Bless DW!!!!
), and as I was cooking this massive mound of jalapeños the other night. The air was redolent with peppers. The air was thick with it, and the cats were all around me (Mom was at work, so it was just us….she works nights part-time). Shortly after I finished and put the peppers off to cool, the cats went NUTS! They were doing strange jumps, dives, and bombings (high jumps that end in a “splash” of kitty on something, more than likely his/her sibling). They were stampeding, and just going nuts.
Did they get a pepper buzz form this massive cooking? Anyone else notice this or have it happen? My cats are weird….but still, I’ve not seen such a unified (all four of them) act of weirdness. After 20 – 30 minutes, they cooled off and all of them took a nap. Weird!
