I wonder if he owns a cat?:D

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A man who tried to cool out his hyper cat by stuffing her into a boxlike homemade bong faces cruelty charges - and catcalls from animal lovers.

Lancaster County sheriff's deputies responding to a domestic disturbance call Sunday alleged they saw 20-year-old Acea Schomaker smoking marijuana through a piece of garden hose attached to a duct-taped, plastic glass box in which the cat had been stuffed.



"This cat was just dazed," Sgt. Andy Stebbing said. "She was on the front seat of the cop car, wrapped in a blanket, and never moved all the way to the humane society."'


Schomaker told deputies 6-month-old Shadow was hyper and he was trying to calm her down. The contraption she had been stuffed inside was 12 inches by 6 inches. Shadow was timid but in good condition Monday at the Capital Humane Society, executive director Bob Downey said.



"What the human mind doesn't invent, huh?" Downey said.



Schomaker was cited for misdemeanor animal cruelty and paid a $400 fine. He also faces drug charges. He did not immediately respond to phone messages left Monday seeking comment.

If they left him in the box, would the cat have been high and not high at the same time?

Nothing in this town surprises me.
Wow! That's the best video ever!

Never ever seen a bong like that--he should market it as a cat relaxing device. :)

Man who put cat in bong says he's quitting pot
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

A Lincoln man accused of stuffing his girlfriend's cat into a homemade bong to calm it down now says he's sworn off smoking marijuana.

Schomaker said he knows now that what he did was wrong.

Schomaker said he didn't want to traumatize Shadow by swatting her or squirting water at her, and he didn't want to take her to an animal shelter because he and his girlfriend feared the cat would be euthanized.

He decided to use the makeshift bong because he had heard about people calming their pets by blowing marijuana smoke in their faces. He insists he wasn't doing it for kicks.

Schomaker said he put the cat in the bong a total of three times, all in the previous week, and it seemed to calm the cat.

"Every time we took her out she would pretty much just lay down and proceed to clean herself and act like a stoned person," Schomaker said.

Is it me or are the concepts of being stoned and cleaning one's self up mutually exclusive? :D

If they said the cat ate a buttload of Doritos, grew long unkept beard and hair, and wore old crappy clothes then perhaps I'd say there was merit to the story.
