The cat that owns me isn't too impurressed by Valarian or Honeysuckle but she does love her catnip which I grow outside. We had other cats that would get 'high' on our old honeysuckle hedges.

Interesting. I do give catnip and assorted to my cats but I also watch for the different degrees of potency. I do not want them drooling and eyes rolled back which happened many years ago and the cat needed to have an emergency visit to the vet. That was my sisters cat. I think too much and too potent isw not safe and can possibly kill them.. I know it. that's my opinion and 2 vets that saw the cat we brought in. I do believe in it though. I just am careful.

That was a very good article and I appreciate the post and also bookmarked it. TY Cher!!
Very good post...

I really find this stupid. Really stupid and insensitive to cats. Give them a little catnip and that's just jolly and harmless, but I could care less about all the other "legal" stuff one can give them to get them high. So why is it so necessary on the part of some people to get their cat high? What's the big deal? Do they themselves wish they could get high, so they give it to their felines? You know darned well that articles like this can always be misused, and you'd think the author would have sense enough to realize that. People put animals through a lot as it is and think it's funny. This is not funny; this is sheer brainless crap against a cat's natural functioning.

Grass for kitties is easy to grow , wheat grass is good, if you do buy the ones growing transplant it in a bigger pot, they love it. Just don't over or under water it it will grow well. The brand called Greenies be careful giving these to your kitties many vets say this is not good at all. Kitties are deathly sick!! Vomiting till you take them to the Vet!! poor kitties!
There are many other treats to give them!!
Thank You Cher

I don't give my cat catnip to get stoned, I give it to him to help with his arthritis in his hips. He's old as hell (16) & has pain/mobility isues, but always seems better after he gets his MCN (Medical CatNip).

For those who recoil in horror at getting your cat stoned (and I assume never had the pleasure themselves!), these natural substances are excellent tonics for aiding digestion and stimulating the immune system.
A word of warning if you "grow your own* catnip outdoors ~ expect many little furry visitors ~ MANY little furry visitors.

I don't like the thought of 'getting my cat stoned'. That says I'm a irresponsible pet guardian and I'm not. Some of my cats like catnip, but I've not tried the others. Not sure if I want to. I thought honey suckle was toxic.
