While seeing cats on catnip—a product specifically designed for them—can often be amusing, it’s less funny when they come in contact with something they’re not supposed to have. Felina the cat somehow managed to eat two extended-release Adderall pills, and for a portion of the day, she walked around in circles and chased her tail.

Fortunately, Felina is fine—after what YouTube user SiriusCJS describes as “a pretty scary 24 hours”—but chances are the Adderall pills will now be far beyond the cat’s reach.

Remember: If your cat ends up eating human medication, you should take it to a vet.
