All felines, from common house cats to lions and tigers, go absolutely crazy for catnip. Okay, not all felines. Only about half of cats show interest in catnip, so there’s no need to worry that there’s something wrong with your cat if they don’t immediately rub their faces in it! This isn’t due to personal preference, but rather the presence of a gene that signals an attraction to catnip.
Even reactions to catnip can vary from cat to cat. While one cat might become super relaxed and cheerful, another cat might become extremely playful or rowdy. Depending on how your cat reacts, you may or may not want to have a stash of catnip readily available.
Thankfully, catnip is super easy to grow! As it is an invasive herb, it’s best to grow it in its own container so it doesn’t take over the rest of your garden. You can typically find catnip at your local nursery or home improvement store’s garden center and the plant requires minimal care.
