Shop Catnip Toys
Catnip is a common herb that is part of the mint family. It is a grayish-green plant, with sharp heart shaped leaves, and thick stems that are coated in fuzzy hairs. What attracts cats to catnip is the nepetalactone chemical that is released from the bulbs; this can trigger many different responses in your cat. Once your cat smells the catnip, they may begin to rub, kick, chew, and roll in it in an attempt to release the chemical that is trapped in the plant’s leaves. Catnip toys are often used to promote exercise and play in cats, and can also be used as a training aid.
