Living Cat Nip
Cat nips produce the chemical nepetalactone which acts as a natural mood enhancer that some cats go crazy for and fresh growing plants have a stronger smell than dried. Cats enjoy the stimulation and will rub, sniff, lick and occasionally eat the plant. Some cats will appear extremely relaxed. In some cats, catnip can make them exhibit aggressive behaviour and even agitation, so they may play a little rougher for a while. The effects are short-lived and usually last 10 to 15 minutes.
