Yes, coked up cats are fun, but who ever heard of a top 13 list?

All the signs are there: Wild eyes, disheveled appearance, straw stuck up the nose... How could they not have known what their kitty was up to?

Cosmos Magazine has defied all standards of taste and tradition by releasing a top 13 list of strange animal stories of 2007. Except for top 5’s, odd numbered top lists are frustrating and should be avoided. Top lists numbering over 10 practically defeat the purpose, and choosing 13 is practically tempting fate. They should have just thinned the list. Number 12, at the very least, could easily have been cut.

Still we’ve got some good stories here. The Queensland suggestion to kill invasive cane toads by practicing golf swings on them was pretty sharp, and the cockatoo that tried to hatch chocolate eggs was fun in a depressing way, but, as far as I’m concerned, the “sick” cat who turned out just to be high on its owners’ cocaine takes the cake. Bad kitty! If only there were a DARE program for pets.

True that, Vamp.

I think the original story, though, had the cat just running across some of the owners' illicit substances and snorting away. It's certainly a case of gross negligence by the humans, but there are probably underlying chemical issues with the kitty. And that picture of the kitten with the straw in its nose... well it just breaks my heart.

So young.
