PS: cats seem to love & react to valerian in a similar way than (to) catnip

But seriously- if you buy mass produced catnip for your cat- make sure it is organic! Meaning- it hasn't been sprayed with pesticides to maximize crop profits.If it can kill bugs- it can kill your cat.

Its easy enough to crow your own, to be sure of that.

Cute video. I let catnip grow wild around the edges of the yard. There seem to be some plants the cats go for more than others. When it's fresh my 6 prefer that I pluck the leaves off the stems for them and mush them between my fingers to get the oil stirring. Yes, I am their obedient servant.

My cats go insane for this grass. In the spring i plant lots of this kitty fav round my garden and it works like a charm as they leave the other plants and flowers alone!!!! I just gotta say they totally act like possessed dino's but very cute indeed!!!

I've been forced to grow and dry my own to accomodate my six junkies! The commercial kind is just too expensive to keep feeding their habits. I'm starting to wonder about kitty rehab............
Thnx, Cher, this was really cute!

Like most cats mine love fresh catnip and it 's good to be reminded that only fresh and organic cat nip should be purchased. Or just grow your own.

I use the "nip" sparingly; it makes my ten year old briefly nuts.

I've heard that some cats don't react to catnip, but I haven't met one yet.

For an evening's entertainment, rub fresh or dried organic catnip between your fingers then drop into open cat-sized paper bags or boxes and lay them on the floor. Your house may looked trashed after this party, but it's worth it! Good times...
