“It turns out that [my cat] has feline hyperesthesia, which in a nutshell is schizophrenia. She hallucinates and all that kind of stuff. People are like 'How can a cat have schizophrenia?' Well, the same way a person can. She still has a brain, it just didn't develop properly. She's a mess but she's on Prozac. She has to be on raw food. All my cats are on some different shit. They all have to be fed in separate rooms. It's a lot of work but I don't have kids for a reason. I want animals. There's a lot of stuff going on at my house.

 

  Before we could figure out what was wrong with her, we were taking her to acupuncture and that seemed to help. She really liked it. We tried to do everything natural with her and at some point, for her own sanity, we had to put her on some drugs and that's fine. Whatever's going to make her happy.”
