Let your cat near this plant and you’re both in for a good time. Your cat might lick or rub against it, and the results are almost immediate! Catnip may cause hyperactivity or even drooling – but is it dangerous? Well you may need to give your cat a little extra room, and get ready to see them run around the house like mad. Some cats may even get a little sleepy or pass out completely!

The effects of catnip are temporary and usually wear off within half an hour, and your cat will become immune to the effects for a little while. But have you ever noticed how young cats will be affected less than older cats? Let’s unpack all of this and find the truth behind catnip.

If you’re looking for the perfect way to up level your cat’s nutrition and turn any food into a nutritional powerhouse, look no further than Nutra Thrive…
