So today we bought a little cardboard thing for our three cats. It was called a Super Scratcher and well it was "laced" with catnip. As you may already have guessed the cats were swarming all over it.
Catnip or Nepeta Cataria is a plant found in Europe and North America. When a cat consumes it the effects include anxiety purring drooling and sleepiness. Not all cats are affected by this kitty drug on 1/2 to 2/3 of cats are affected.
Cats are not the only critters that can benefit from catnip. Humans originally used it in tea or juice. It was uses to treat nervous headaches, hysteria, and insanity. The oils that can be isolated from catnip effectively repels bugs.
So educate your cat and keep it drug free. Cure your insanity and get rid of bugs all thanks to catnip.
