Win FREE Xtreme Catnip
Keeping your cat active can be a challenge. Most cats won’t agree to be walked on a leash, and letting your cat out to wander alone can be dangerous. That leaves you in charge of seeing to it that your cat gets plenty of exercise to keep muscles strong and limber while preventing weight gain. Playing with cats will help keep them fit, but considering that they sleep 12-16 hours a day, you’ll be lucky if your schedules synch up…and your cat is in the mood. For an easy, fun way to give your cat a little get-up-and-go try Xtreme Catnip, the all-natural herb even lazy cats can’t resist!
What is catnip and why do cats love it?
The scientific name for the catnip plant is Nepeta cataria. It is categorized as a member of the family of mint plants and can grow as high as 3 feet. The catnip plant contains a chemical called nepetalactone, which is the attractor and stimulator that cats respond to.
Most cats react to the smell of catnip with heightened awareness, playfulness, and exhilaration. You will likely see a lot of rolling, jumping, chasing and bunny kicking, especially when the catnip is inside of or sprinkled on a cat toy. However, younger cats and kittens under the age of 6 months will usually not respond to catnip.
Catnip is safe for cats to eat in small quantities, but will have a calming, sedative effect. Sprinkling catnip on your cat’s food may also encourage a finicky cat to eat.
The catnip “high” usually lasts about 10 minutes. Once the catnip wears off, your cat will return to a normal activity level or may become a little sleepy from all the excitement. It is recommended that you only give catnip to your cat a few times per week at most to avoid building up a tolerance to the herb.
