Police in Italy say that believe they caught a cat high on cocaine while raiding the home of a suspected drug dealer.

The Italian publication Il Mattino reported that police found that cat during the raid of an apartment in the northeastern town of Villorba.

According to a translation by The Local, police said that they noticed that the “very large” feline was “behaving strangely” because it was furiously licking white powder residue on the floor.

Antonio Diaz, a suspected Columbian drug dealer, was arrested, and 250 grams of cocaine was reportedly seized during the raid.
