Call it cat weed, catmint, or catnip, it’s the stuff that makes cats wacky. And as with any herb, freshness matters. Catnip is an herb related to mint. It’s safe and natural. Catnip works in both dried and fresh forms. All you have to do is put catnip on the floor or on a dish - your cat will know what to do! While most cats only smell and roll around in the catnip, some will eat it, and that is totally ok!
Catnip can be given every other day to cats, but after a few minutes, its effectiveness wears off and your cat will need to be away from the catnip for a while in order to experience a reaction again.
