What Every Cat Owner Should Know About Catnip

Catnip is a natural herb, similar to mint, that used to be used as a relaxing tea, but these days it is mainly used for cats. There are many ways to give your pet catnip, whether it be in toys, in a spray, or simply by eating the herb directly. Catnip affects each cat differently, either ramping them up or mellowing them out. It can often put them in a calm and playful mood, leading to many seeing it as a recreational drug for cats. This only lasts about 10 minutes or so and they generally won't react to catnip again until an hour after the effects have worn off. It is possible for a cat to have too much catnip, with symptoms ranging from dizziness and trouble walking to diarrhea. However, catnip is generally non-toxic, so eating or smelling too much will not cause any long-term damage to your pet's health.
