Catnip contains the feline attractant nepetalactone. Nepeta cataria (and some other species within the genus Nepeta) are known for their behavioural effects on the cat family, not only on domestic cats but also other species of cats.
With domestic cats, N. cataria is used as a recreational substance for pet cats’ enjoyment, and catnip and catnip-laced products designed for use with domesticated cats are available to our petparents HERE. Common behaviours cats display when they sense the bruised leaves or stems of catnip are rubbing on the plant, rolling on the ground, pawing at it, licking it, and chewing it. Consuming much of the plant is followed by drooling, sleepiness, anxiety, leaping about and purring. Some growl, meow, scratch or bite at the hand holding it.
The main response period after exposure is generally between five and fifteen minutes, after which olfactory fatigue usually sets in.
Not all cats are affected by catnip; roughly 33% are not affected by the plant. The behaviour is hereditary. Order now to try out catnip on your feline friend today!
