    Default Catnip

    This might be a stupid topic but..........

    Do you give your cats catnip? How do they respond to it?
    I did some research and found out that up to 30% of cats don't respond to the chemical found in catnip. When I give it to my cat, he goes absolutely crazy!

    Also, do you think catnip is moral?
    Since catnip is a hereditary thing, cats with the gene have no choice but to roll around and rub it. Is it moral to "force" your cat to play with catnip? I think it's okay, because my cat is getting old and needs the exercise. Even so, I still think of catnip as a cat's "drug".

    Catnip is a drug, but cats can't really develop addictions to it since they can't get more junk on their own. Though I think it's better to engage cats in toy-based play (or better yet, letting them out every now and then) instead of doping them up to get them to move. But whatever rocks your boat.

    You aren't suppose to give a cat catnip. I haven't given my cat catnip before and never will.
    My replacement for catnip is catgrass.
    Well technically its just wheatgrass.
    And he likes it a lot.

    My cats go nuts, small amounts get them pretty hyper, but once I had a whole bag of it that my cat found and she just went insane.

    I don't know if it's good or bad for them, as far as I can tell it just gets them excited and they calm down soon after you take it away. I prefer only letting them smell it on their toys or giving them a little.


    I had a cat who really liked the smell of chlorine in my hair too, weird.

    Actually from my research I found out that catnip is harmless to cats, unless the cat eats a lot, which can only result in vomiting or other minor symptoms.

    So, in other words, you saying you should not give a cat any catnip is based upon your own personal (and skewed) feelings, not backed by any empirical data or even a source and thus totally erroneous.

    I say skewed because waving drugs in front of a human and saying "get high" and giving catnip to cats are not comparable. If you think it is .. sort your head out.

    To answer the question: I give my cat catnip haphazardly. I generally believe along the lines of Eris, in that I prefer toy-based play. Every now and then though, I will sprinkle some catnip around and let her enjoy an hour of crazy wonderful fun. I basically use it as "something different" than her many soft toy mice and walmart bags (she loves playing in bags for some reason) as most cats seem to.

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on. Catnip a DRUG!! Oh dear Goddess. Okay, since I am an animal lover and know plenty about them, I want to clear this up right now.

    First, Catnip is completely harmless for a cat. Nothing bad happens to your cat whenever you give it catnip. Catnip is not some addictive drug for cats. It is actually a relative of the mint family and Catnip (its real name is Nepeta) is even used for human consumption. Since it has calming effects, it is often used in herbal teas (check the label). The active ingredient in catnip is a chemical called nepetalactone, which is very effective as a mosquito repellent.

    Nepetalactone is a mild hallucinogen, but it is not addictive nor does it harm the cat in any way (unless you decide to put your crazy cat on a high shelf after giving them catnip and even after that, it would be your fault not catnip). Cats go "crazy" for catnip because of their sensitivity to nepetalactone. Cats have different ways of reacting to it. For some, it has a calming effect; they lick their paws, roll in the leaves, purr. For others, they bounce off the walls. However, the reaction to nepetalactone is very short; about 5-15 minutes. After that, a cat won't react to for another hour or two. Kittens younger than 3 months old and old cats won't react to catnip and since the sensitivity to nepetalactone is hereditary, some cats won't react to it at all no mattter how old they or how much catnip you give them.

    Catnip is perfectly safe to give to cats. The only thing that you have to worry about is your cat vomiting from it, however, it takes an extremely large amount of catnip in order to make a cat sick and since the owner is the only source of the catnip, the responsibilty falls completely on the owner. If you do not want to give your cat catnip, that is a personal choice. However, know now that catnip does not harm your cat in any way, unless you are completely irresponsible with your cat.

    Catgrass, unlike catnip, is not something that is used to entertain a cat (your cat will enjoy the catgrass but it is not a toy). Catgrass is used to give cats nutrients that are not always found in their catfood and to prevent them from getting these nutrients from your household plants, especiallys ones that could be poisonous. While cats are carnivores, they need extra nutrients to be healthy (if they were lions, the would have gotten these nutrients from the guts of a gazelle). That is what catgrass is for.

    It's strange, alot of cats I've seen just turn down the catnip. But they act very strange when they eat it, atleast from what I've seen.

    Do not anthropomorphise cats. While I don't doubt they do have feelings, their different evolutionary path (being stalking predators with a less established "pack" than humans) has undoubtedly left them with a different set of feelings than us. In other words, except for very strong feelings (e.g. displeasure if you step on their tails or happiness if you give them your dinner), whatever you think your cat is feeling is probably not what it is feeling.

    In other words, how I would feel about a situation can not be translated to how a cat would feel about it (and vice versa).

    Catnip is Kitty-Crack.

    I gave my cat a stuffed animal with it inside and he ripped the animal open and ate it.lol

    Ive noticed the same effects occur with dogs and dear feces.

    Catnip is NOT a drug for cats. Catnip does not harm cats in any way and cats cannot get addicted to it. Cats only react to catnip because of their sensitivity to lecetalactone, the active ingredient in catnip, which causes them to either become calm and loving, crazy, or something in between. Lecetalactone is a very mild hallucinogen but does not do anything to the cat other than the above effects. Cats do not "get high" off of catnip.

    The sensitivity to lecetalacone is hereditary. Only cats with this gene will react to this chemical. If they do not have tht gene, the cat will not react to the catnip no matter what you do. Kittens (under 3 months) and old cats will not react to catnip either. So, you may have had a cat that reacted to catnip but once they grew older, they no longer had a reaction to it. Also, the reaction only lasts about 10 minutes; after that, they will not react anymore for about 2 hours. Cats react to the smell (not the taste) of catnip. They will paw at it, roll at it and lick it but usually won't go so far as to eat it.

    Some dogs react to deer feces but not in the same way cats do. Dogs with hunting intincts still intact (herding dogs, hunting dogs, sport dogs, etc) will react to deer feces because of their drive to hunt. Since they smell prey, they want to hunt and chase it and will go nuts of they are not able to chase.
    This is my war face.

    This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.

    Wolf, just trust me on this, don't think - just trust me; don't bother repeating yourself. You will get carpal tunnel before your typical poster here will bother to read previous posts before typing their own. If this thread goes on, expect every fourth post to be something about catnip being crack for cats or something.

    Just ... walk away. Picture the calm blue ocean, chant Serenity Now, go shoot some Nazi's, take down Answerer, whatever, just save yourself the trouble and don't bother..

    Honey, people would definitely do drugs if it was harmless and given to them. In fact, people STILL do drugs when it is harmful AND illegal. I'm sure wild cats stumbled upon some sort of catnip before they were domesticated. Let nature do its thang.

    I give my cat catnip. It dosen't seem to make her hyper at all. Then again she is still a kitten and is hyper when she's awake anyway. Crisp packets seem to make her more hyper then catnip. She'll chase a crisp packet for hours on end.

    I read that a kitten younger than 3 months old would not react to catnip, so we'll see! (unless your kitten is older than 3 months old O_O
