What is Catnip and why our feline friends are crazy about it?
The stuff that drives your kitten crazy goes by the Latin name Nepeta cataria, and it's a member of the genus Nepeta (derived from Nepete, the Italian town where catnip was first cultivated).
When a cat smells catnip it usually licks, chews, rubs against and rolls around on the plant, as well as salivates and meows. This reaction lasts for about 15 minutes, and then the cat loses interest and needs about two hours of "reset" time before it can have the same response.
But why does the plant hold such power over your cat? The secret to catnip is nepetalactone, a volatile oil stored in tiny bulbs on the leaves, stems and seedpods of the plant. When nepetalactone enters a cat's nasal tissue - the magic happens! Just Sprinkle any amount, on your Kitty's favorite toy, bed or scratch post, and watch them purr, roll, meow and play.
