When your sweet fur baby shows you love with their head butts, snuggles, and loud purrs, you can return the favor by gifting them with a fun catnip toy. The oils found in catnip act as an artificial pheromone and have the potential to stimulate the sensory receptors in cats older than six months. This can induce an almost euphoric feeling.
Your cat's reaction to catnip can be really entertaining to watch. As they paw at, rub against, and roll around on it. Some kooky kitties will meow, growl, purr, drool, and even go into crazy cat mode as they dash around the house. But don't worry, the effects of the catnip only last for about 10 minutes and then your frisky feline won't be susceptible to it again for at least an hour or so.
Catnip can also be a great tool. Adding just a bit of the herb to a scratching post will help encourage them to use that instead of sofa legs for instance. It can also be used to help lazier kitties get up and get some much needed exercise. The best part is that even though catnip creates an altered state, it is not addictive or harmful to your fun-loving feline.
If your cat is one of the many that is susceptible to catnip, a toy scented with it can be the ultimate in feline fun. With refillable toys that look like animals or cartoon characters, ones that they can chase, and options that let you interact with them while they play, you and your furry friend will never run out of fun.
