Introducing: Ask a Cat Lady with Sarah Donner

 |  Nov 4th 2011  |   1 Contribution


Why, hello! I am a singer/songwriter/creative type who fosters kitties when I'm not touring in a sexy minivan. I have four kitties who live in my small New Jersey apartment with me.

I've found homes for more than 80 kittens, so I know a lot about socialization, flea picking, and cleaning poop out of the bathtub. My latest album Typing Is Dangerous can be downloaded on iTunes or purchased at www.sarahdonner.com. There are no cat songs on it per se, and I'm thankful that Catster has provided me an outlet for my quirky sense of feline musical humour!

If you have a question about kitties, e-mail me at sarahATsarahdonnerDOTcom! If you want to support my musical endeavors, please visit my site, grab some CDs or kitten merchandise, or drop me a note.

Now, on to today's question: Can pregnant cats have catnip? Let's find out, shall we?

 The lyrics:

Have a Hit
by Sarah Donner

The lady kitty, she got knocked up
Behind a tree after a hit of nip she was
Taken by tomcat in the shadow
Now she needs something to help her just let go

It's okay to have a hit when you're
Pregnant and you're a cat
And it's catnip
There's nothing wrong with herbal stimulation
After carnal copulation

It's a hard time living on the streets
When you don't have a steady stream of kibbles and wet meats
Don't be a quitter if you're gonna have a litter
You can lick it, you can sniff it if it makes you feel better

Babies in your belly, yeah, you know it's gonna fatten
Try Nepeta cataria if you're down with the Latin
All the cats can copy, when you feel like gettin' naughty
All you fuzzy little shawties just rub it on your body!

It's okay to have a hit when you're
Pregnant and you're a cat
And it's catnip
There's nothing wrong with herbal stimulation
After carnal copulation
We all need a little self-medication

The Backstory: I came across the question about pregnant cats and catnip, and I couldn't help but picture a poor pregnant stray down on her luck. I have a stray named Olivia who just got trapped, neutered, and released. I wanted to give her a voice — well, give her the voice in my head anyhow. I gleaned most of my information from the Nepeta Cataria entry on Wikipedia, the Catster forums, and pregnantcatinfo.com.

Keep those questions coming, and I will do my best to answer and entertain! You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter if you are so inclined.
