Cats and Catnip!

Did you know that cats can get high?

That's the effect catnip has on your kitty!

Catnip is a herb which is also a proud member of the mint family. And, it can turn the laziest kitty to a crazy active one!

And that's probably why Catnip is used in so many cat toys!

So, let's find more about cats and catnip, shall we?

  • Catnip sensitivity is inherited which means that some kitties aren't really affected by catnip at all!

In fact, only 50% of cats are sensitive to catnip. The rest just treat it like any other herb! 
  • Smelling catnip gets the kitty high and active

Smelling Catnip can sure get a kitty experience a 'high' and make the kitty active and playful---somewhat like an excited dog!

  • Eating catnip mellows the cat!

  • Smelling and eating catnip actually do have different (and opposite!) effects on the kitty. 
    Eating catnip can make a kitty lazier and a different kind of 'high' altogether! If your cat's drooling, chancer are that she found the catnip inside her toy and ate it!

  • The effects of catnip lasts only a few minutes

The good thing about catnip is that its results only last an average of 10 minutes. After that, your kitty will be indifferent to it as she is to everything else...
  • Catnip even affects other members of the cat family--like Lions, Tigers, etc.

Its not just the small cats that are affected by catnip! The bigger cats like lions, tigers, jaguars, etc. are also able to feel the effects of catnip!
  • Catnip is non-addictive

  • If you're worried that your cat may get addicted on catnip then I've got some news for you: Catnip is non-addictive. So, bring on those catnip toys!
  • Your kitty can't overdose on this herb!

  • Another good thing about Catnip is that your kitty can't overdose on it! This means that you really don't have to worry about this herb much!
