What is catnip?
Catnip is another name for the herb Nepeta cataria, a relative of oregano and spearmint.
What does catnip do?
What is probable is the cat is reacting to similar feel-good pheromones released during sexual courtship/activity. However, non-sexual behaviour—including playing, chasing, and hunting—can also be observed. A typical response includes sniffing, chewing, licking, head shaking, and chin, cheek, and body rubbing (in that order). Additional responses may include stretching, jumping and licking.
Is catnip harmful to cats?
Catnip is not harmful to your cat. They won’t overdose on it. Most cats know when they’ve had enough and will refuse any further offers.
Is it safe for kittens?
Short anser: yes. Kittens younger than eight weeks old aren’t able to enjoy its effect; they might actually show an aversion to it.
The sealed bottle keeps the catnip always fresh, but should be kept out of direct sunlight in a dark, cool place such as the pantry.
