We believe that plant-cat-aromatherapy, (our Catnip), is also a good way to provide a form of enrichment to your purr-ball. We went on a lengthy search to source high-quality, naturally grown plants to entertain your kitty. Indoor kitties may become bored and stressed more easily than those that get to enjoy the great outdoors. For this reason, it’s important to provide your indoor kitty with stimulation such as Catnip.
Most people know about Catnip. Also known as Cat Mint and Catwort. Catnip is a native plant in southern and eastern Europe, the Middle East, Central Asia, and parts of China. It is easy to grow. It is a herbaceous plant, that blooms from spring to fall. It produces very small fragrant flowers. Good news, it is also deer resistant.
Only about two-thirds of cats are drawn to Catnip. Attraction to Catnip is an inherited trait, although kittens 6-months and younger, may not react to Catnip. Cats are attracted by the iridoid called nepetalactone, which also is a mosquito repellent.
