Hello everybuddy! Today I would like to talk about catnip. Even though I love my treats, I also have a great fondness for catnip. Did you know catnip is an herb? The scientific name for catnip is Nepeta cataria.
I recommend starting out with a big sniff so you can savor the catnippy aromatic oils. Did you know that 10 – 30% of cats do not respond to catnip at all? I prefer the dried-up kind and usually ignore fresh catnip plants.
I like to get a giant pile of catnip so I can sniff, lick and roll all around in it. Did you know the effects of catnip usually last from about 5 to 15 minutes?
The more catnip you can get stuck in your fur, the better. Whoa! Everything looks upside-down and backwards now!
My Mommeh says I turn into a maniac after I have been rolling around in the catnip. Sorry, Mommeh.
I think I have a catnip hangover now!
Do your kitties enjoy catnip?
