It is no secret that cats love and enjoy sniffing and playing with catnip. One thing you can always count on is catnip for your kitty. Catnip is a smell good plant that comes from the mint family. Catnip is from Africa, Europe and Asia but can now be found all over North America. Did you know that there are more than 250 species of catnip in the world today. Catnip can grow up to two to three feet with heart shaped leaves. Now if that is not a sign that cats love catnip I do not know what will. Catnip can sprout in multiple different colors like purple, pink and white flowers. When cats smell catnip they will paw at it, rub it or roll all in it. Can make a mess but it’s all worth it to see the joy on your kitty’s face. Some cats can get really strong reactions to it and get frisky, drool and ever purr more than usual.
