The Incredible Catnip Plant Works Magic On Cats

Rumble Catnip is a plant in the mint family, the oil in the plant that affects cats is called nepetalactone. So, when a cat eats catnip it acts as a sedative. However when it is only smelled it acts as a stimulant. Curiosity killed these cats, so let’s see how catnip worked its magic on them!

Afterwards, some cats get very playful, while others just mellow out. It is thought to mimic feline pheromones, triggering those receptors. Even big cats like catnips. Only around 50% of the cats respond. The effects last for 5-15 minutes.

There is reg catnip and fresh catnip, but also other plants like Valerian root and silver vine that have the same effects on cats.

Footage shows all these plants on the floor and two cats are about to decide which one they ‘prefur’. Watch as these curious cats munch into one plant after another, who knows what the side-effects of this delicious treat will be!

There is obviously something contagious in these plants that makes cats go wild about it. Where have you seen a cat going crazy for eating herbs? Is it the smell of it that makes cats go nuts afterwards?

Moments after they feasted on the plants, the two cats engaged into fierce play and went all attack mode and seconds after they acted all lazy and started pampering each other.

In the last footage, we see a cat, utterly confused, wondering where did all go, obviously oblivious. Dude where did my cardboard go?

However, there is no need to worry, these plants are totally safe and non-addictive for your feline pal! Do your cats like catnip?

What exactly is Catnip and why do some cats love it and others have no reaction?
