    Cats lack the cannabinoid receptors in order to get "high" from marijuana. If your cat acts differently after being exposed to marijuana, it's because the smoke is probably making her sick and confused. Cats are extremely sensitive to smoke and it's a good idea to keep her away from marijuana smoke, tobacco smoke, and incense. You can still use these things if you own a cat, of course, but I'd highly suggest keeping her in another room during these times.

    Do Cats Stay High Forever

  • 1 decade ago

    Okay, nothing happened. Still, it isn't a good idea to get an animal high. Marijuana can cause PERMANENT neurological deficits in animals (nevermind humans, that's your choice). So, potentially, the cat could stay "high" forever. Marijuana toxicity can also cause radical behavior changes, even severe aggression in animals that are otherwise very docile.

    In any case, the length of the "high" depends on how much marijuana the cat has had. It varies as much as it does in humans -- some people only stay high for an hour or so and others can take two hits and be high all day.

    Hope I helped.

    All mammals have cannabinoid receptors, and therefore, are capable of getting high. Getting kitty baked would be difficult using smoked or vaporized cannabis. Now, edibles, (with cat safe ingredients) would be a better route. So, whether the thc/cbd etc... is forced down tabbys throat, or humanely digested as a treat (cannabutter?), duration of effect would be no longer than 90 - 180 minutes, similar to a human.

    Omg, bleeding hearts.I've gotten my pets stoned, majority of stoners do. Don't force it, some animals like it, some don't. If they like it they'll come around for a lil cloud. If not they go do their thing. I don't think they'll stay stoned forever, that doesn't sound right. To the pet people of america crying for stoned cats everywhere, remember, keeping an animal in your house that wants out is mean. My cat got to get stoned lay in the yard and stalk birds, sounds pretty decent to me.

    I've actually researched this on dogs and cats, not by performing it, I think it's cruel after the research. Cats can actually die from inhaling maryjane smoke. They can get cancer (even though we smoke for our cancer) Cats immune systems are not built like ours. They are also known to get sick from the smoke, not high, just sick. More than likely if the cat seems high, it's not, you're just real high and you think everything else is too. They cat is actually feelings harsh flu like symptoms, if your aware of it or not. The cancer in general and putting my animals in harms way made me want to cry. My animals are my babies. If you feel different I am begging you to give your animal away, or put it in a different room while you smoke.

    cats and dogs seem to actively seek out weed smoke. cant say why this is but Ive heard its anywhere from hours to years.

  • 1 decade ago

    could be a couple of hours to days to forever. it'll have an impact on his behavior if you're not lucky. its just a really really really bad idea to do it. it could change your cat from the little person he use to be.

    This isn't even a question, this is like on the Maury Povich show when a horrible mother allows her child to sniff glue and she enters the stage shouting "DON'T BE HATIN'!"

    Keep your stash away from your cat, thanks.

    HOW OFTEN DOES A FEMALE CAT COME INTO HEAT? In the world of breeding cats, the female cat is usually referred to as a "queen". Her heat cycle is often called the "estrus cycle" or simply "estrus". The length of time of the estrus, and the frequency of the estrus cycles depends upon many factors, such as geographic and environmental factors, (temperature and the number of daylight hours), her age and overall health, and her genetic background. Once a queen goes into heat or estrus, she may stay in heat for several days, to 2-3 weeks. Some queens, once they are sexually mature and enter estrus, do not come out of heat unless and until they are either bred to a full male cat, or spayed. The majority of queens will cycle in and out of estrus during the prime breeding season (roughly December through August), returning back into heat approximately every other week. CLICK ON KITTY to Return to Top of Page! WHAT ARE THE SIGNS OF HEAT? Each queen will exhibit different signs of being in heat or estrus. Unlike dogs, cats rarely show signs of vaginal bleeding during estrus. However, their behavior changes greatly, with the majority of queens becoming quite vocal and loud, and showing increased signs of affection. They may roll around on the floor or plop down right in front of you as you are walking; they constantly want to be with you and be stroked, and when you pet them on their back, they will raise their rear end up high and knead with their front paws. CLICK ON KITTY to Return to Top of Page! HOW DO I KNOW WHEN I SHOULD BREED MY FEMALE? Many breeders as well as veterinarians and animal experts have different opinions on this. It is always preferable to have your queen be fully grown and mature herself, both physically and emotionally, before attempting to have her become a mother. It is usually recommended to wait until your queen is a year old, and has had 2 heat cycles, before breeding her. However, that said, there are cases when it may not be in her best interest, medically, to wait that long before breeding her. Factors such as breed type, the number and intensity of heat cycles, can all play an important role in this critical decision. Breeders of pedigreed cats walk a fine line between doing what they feel is best for their queens, and actually inadvertently causing problems for the queen by interfering too much with what would be the normal course of events in nature. For some queens, if they have had 3 or more heat cycles without having been bred, especially if these heat cycles are extremely intense, they may become more likely to develop a condition known as "cystic ovaries". Once cysts develop on the ovaries, this will usually render these queens sterile and incapable of becoming pregnant. Occasionally, a feline fertility veterinarian specialist may be able to surgically break down and/or remove the cysts, but obviously this procedure carries other risks and may lead to scar tissue on the affected ovary. Infertile queens should be spayed and make WONDERFUL pets.

HOW LONG SHOULD I LET THE QUEEN BE IN WITH THE MALE? Female cats are known as "induced ovulators", which means that the act of breeding itself is what stimulates her ovaries to release eggs. Most female cats require 3-4 breedings within a 24 hour period for ovulation to occur. Again, there are a variety of factors that can play a role here, and the breeder needs to be not only looking out for the well-being of the queen, but also for the overall health and well-being of the male cat ("stud" or "tom"). If the queen and stud are happy together, there is no urgent need to separate them after they have bred. We have left a happy couple together right up until a week prior to the queen's delivery date, several times! Once the queen is pregnant, she will go out of heat, and the male will stop breeding her. Some breeders leave the queen in with the stud for 1-2 days, while others prefer to be a bit more certain that the queen is pregnant, and give them 4 days together. CLICK ON KITTY to Return to Top of Page! WHAT ARE THE FIRST SIGNS OF PREGNANCY? Pregnancy in cats , called the "gestation period", generally ranges from 60 to 67 days, with the average being 63 days. Most of our queens deliver between days 64 and 66. It is very important to mark on your calendar the days you have actually witnessed your queen being bred by the stud cat, as this will be the primary way for you to determine when she is due to deliver her kittens. At about 3 weeks after breeding, a pregnant queen will show some physical symptoms of pregnancy, such as enlarged and rose-colored nipples, and a big increase in appetite and overall interest in food. Your veterinarian should be able to feel her abdomen carefully (called "palpating") and detect any small fetuses. Some queens will have a few episodes of vomiting - the feline version of "morning sickness". Most pregnant queens will become very affectionate, want to be close to you, and thrive on receiving loving reassurances from you that all will be well!! CLICK ON KITTY to Return to Top of Page! WHAT SHOULD I FEED MY PREGNANT QUEEN? You should expect that your queen will require and eat quite a bit more during pregnancy and during nursing than she did previously. One way to be sure she is getting enough nutrition is to increase the frequency of her feedings also. It takes an incredible amount of nutrition to create and then to nurse kittens, and if the queen is not taking in enough nutrition, nutrients will be pulled from her own tissues and put her own health at risk. A few days before her due date, you may want to start adding some calcium to her wet food. Calcium supplements for dogs and cats are available at most large pet and feed stores. Pregnant cats do need a bit of special care. Be sure to keep her indoors and in a clean, safe environment at all times. Make certain that her litter box is always extremely clean to avoid the spread of infection; and you may want to switch to a 'shorter' litter box as her belly starts to grow. Be sure she has comfortable, soft places to rest, that she gets plenty of rest, and do everything you can to try to keep the atmosphere around her as stress-free as possible.
