    He’s passed his catnip sobriety test (touching his nose), so he’s able to consume more.

    Bobbygee has it in one.

    I made some catnip tea the other night to taste it and my cat ran into the room, sniffing all over the place and then jumped up and stuck her head in the cup. Catnip is strange stuff.

    Great infographic here to help you understand catnip: http://www.catnipsum.com/sciency_stuff.html

    It’s a natural drug for cats - has no detrimental effects on them, it’s just an alright high. :)

    @ 3 - That website has all sorts of wonderful positive information about catnip, but not a single shred of evidence for the claim that the stuff is entirely benign. I naturally assumed that Rach and Ben were dealing to all those happy feline addicts, but there didn’t seem to be any sales pitch, just positive propaganda.

    It’s been years since I tried giving catnip to a cat, but I distinctly recall that it has an odd scent, and after a while I started wondering whether it was having some effect on me, as well. Nothing psychotropic, but I had the feeling that it was starting to give me a headache.

    It’s genetic. 50 % of cats get turned on by catnip, the other half don’t react at all. To cats that do react non-catnip things like valerian root, oregano, a date’s shoes (thanks, kitty, way to make me look good!) all smell good enough for the cat to act like a stoner.

    Cats tend to get more attracted to catnip as they get older. I don’t know why.

    My last few cats had zero interest in catnip. I think my current one has poor sinuses or something.
