In a statement released online this morning Herbert denied any addiction to catnip, either now or in the past! Herbert said, “These rumours started a number of years ago after an online interview misprinted a word. I told the reporter I was addicted to CAT NAPS! And usually had 4 or 5 a day!” He added, “I do enjoy catnip occasionally just like every other cat but it is purely recreational.”
Herbert is looking forward to starting his new job at The Cat Mag, and says he hopes this “tempest in a teapot” can finally be put behind him.
