Catnip is highly attractive to cats. It is a perennial herb belonging to the mint family Labiatae. When cats are exposed to catnip they can react in many different ways such as rolling around on the floor, drooling, rubbing with the chin and cheek areas, bunny kicking, sniffing and licking and becoming very playful and active. The effects of catnip vary from cat to cat. Catnip is not harmful to your cat and they cannot overdose on it, when they have had enough they will move away from it. To keep catnip fresh it should be stored in an airtight container.

Catnip encourages your cat to play, exercise and generally makes them feel good. There are numerous catnip toys now available with various makes of catnip in them. By introducing catnip and catnip toys to your cat they will be encouraged to play and therefore exercise. For overweight or lazy cats catnip can be extremely helpful in getting your cat up and moving, chasing around and playing. Catnip toys will provide a good workout for your cat, they will have great fun and keep fit at the same time.

Catnip is also a useful training aid. By putting catnip on a cat scratching post you will attract your cat to the post and be encouraging your cat to scratch the post and not your furniture and carpets.

Catnip is now available in a number of forms and varieties including sprays and even bubbles. Not all cats react to catnip but for those that do it not only provides great excitement for your cats but a lot of entertainment for us watching their antics.

This is a picture of my beautiful Persian ‘Rocky’ who is 18 months old – he is a real livewire and constantly getting in to mischief but I love him dearly! I think he would make a great cat of the month.
