Catnip is an iconic plant forever linked to cats even though only fifty percent of cat’s enjoy it. I like it fresh but there are many types and ways you can get it. Cooper boy prefers it dry but River?
My River boy thought it was foolish any way you tried it.
Due to its popularity with cats, catnip is infused in toys, sold growing and sold dried in such a vast assortment you can buy a new one every payday and never run out. The effects are in a chemical of catnip oil, called nepetalactone. Catnip sprays are less potent because there isn’t enough of this chemical in it and since nepetalactone is part of the oil, it can be short lived, so you’ll want to freeze unused dry catnip to extend its lifespan. Fresh or still growing seems to be best way to keep it potent.
However you get it, you have a 50% chance your cat will think it’s the most awesome thing in existence. Now for the fun part!

- Kitty City Catnip Corrugate Scratchers – Okay, okay, technically a scratcher, but the nip in this one made Cooper hilarious! Generally I recommend to just throw added catnip away because there’s no telling how long the scratcher hung about before purchase but man! That was the stuff!
