Catnip Banana

July 9th, 2009 · No Comments · Cat Treats, Catnip

catnip teaHave you ever watch your cat go crazy, role around the floor and then make you one of his faviorte catnip dube so you can taste the aromoa of fine catnip. You should know even though your cat drugged around their catnip all over the house, it’s really not a drug. It’s actually an herb that belongs to the mint family and When the leaves are broken it releases a certain chemical that most cats respond to.

All cats respond differently to catnip. Some of them walk away cuz they couldn’t care less, but others go ape. The cats that do go crazy are responding to the active ingredient in catnip called Nepetalactone. The reaction to this chemical is caused by the organ that operates a cat’s five senses (touch, smell, sight, sound and taste.)

Those cats that do react will eat it or lick it; some roll in it and others just sniff it. The catnip reaction is inherited so not all of them respond. If your cat’s behavior doesn’t change around catnip it’s nothing to worry about.

Catnip is completely safe and isn’t addictive to cats so give your feline friend a treat like our 100% Organically Grown Catnip. every now and then. The most amusing thing about giving cats catnip is the behavior change. Although it’s safe, keep in mind you can have too much of a good thing. Give your cat a catnip banana today.
