Cat Community Stunned by Surfboard Theft
by Ashley Welter, FluffPo Correspondent
Two San Diego cats were excited to hit the waves this past weekend, but the only wave they experienced was one of depression when they discovered their surfboard had been stolen. 
“They had been practicing their tandem routine in hopes of qualifying for the upcoming Meow Mix Pro Competition,” their publicist, Annabelle Rowland told The Fluffington Post, “but now they’ve been left with nothing but an empty surfboard bag.” The cats haven’t left the empty bag since their devastating discovery — not even for canned food. 
The surfboard heist is the latest in a string of incidents targeting cats that have taken place throughout San Diego’s coastal neighborhoods. Just last week, a Pacific Beach tabby had his favorite laser pointer nabbed right off his front porch, and the scratching post of a calico went missing a week before that.
No suspects have been identified at this time, but police suspect the notorious “Woof Kings” dog gang could be to blame.

Cross-Eyed Cat Scores Big With Hand Knit Crafts Business
by Ashley Welter, FluffPo Correspondent
Oregon residents are raving about a cat named Teva whose entrepreneurial spirit has made waves in the local community. Her company, Cross Stitch — a quirky play on her eye condition — features an array of different products including blankets, scarves, mittens, and beanies. 
Andrea Wixler, a local resident and mother of four, told The Fluffington Post, “Cross Stitch makes the coziest mittens. My kids have a pair in every color!” Wixler is just one of hundreds of loyal customers who swear by Teva’s products. 
The kitty’s line was recently picked up by Angie’s, a clothing store in downtown Portland.  “We pride ourselves on supporting local businesses,” said owner Angela Langley, “so we’re thrilled to have Cross Stitch products on our shelves.” 
Before starting her company, Teva worked in the competitive gaming industry, but excessive play with a laser pointer left her cross eyed. After the incident, she took a leap of faith, abandoning the high-stakes, big money world of the “red dot” in order to pursue her true passion: yarn.

Major Catnip Bust Rocks Local Community
The DEA announced that, in partnership with local law enforcement, the agency has successfully closed a six month investigation into major catnip trafficking syndicate based in the small town of Gibbs Falls, North Dakota. The operation ended with 12 arrests and the seizure of over 2,000 pounds of catnip. Street value: $1.4 million.
"We’re happy to get all that nip off the streets," said agent Monica Payne, who lead the undercover operation, posing for months as a catnip buyer.
The cats involved in the ring were importing the illicit substance through Canada. Most of it was destined for Midwestern cities like Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago and Detroit. But what made this ring so dangerous, said Payne, was that they were also “cooking” the catnip into a highly additive designer drug known on the street as “scratch.” 
"Scratch has ruined a lot of lives," said Payne. "And cats only get nine."
