Reader Christopher M. called my attention to this video, apparently showing a TAME CANADA LYNX (Lynx canadensis) named Max. The YouTube note says this:
I received a mighty large heavy-duty catnip pillow from Mountain Weaver of Averill Park, NY. I know Max loves catnip but he destroys his toys very quickly. I believe this one is going to last!
Look at his huge paws! Hear his mighty purr! Is there any doubt that this animal is showing the classic “catnip reaction”?
