If you’ve got a feline friend, chances are you’ve already experienced the wonders of catnip. That stuff can turn your cat into a party animal, am I right?
But let’s be honest, cleaning up those catnip sprinkles from the floor after your cat’s wild catnip adventure can be a real hassle.
So, why wouldn’t you brew up some catnip tea instead? Yep, you read that right – tea for your cat. It’s a fantastic way for both you and your furry friend to kick back and relax together without all the mess.
Here’s how to make it:
Start by boiling around 500ml of water on your stovetop. Once it’s bubbling away, take it off the heat and add 2-3 teaspoons of catnip (always making sure it’s pure and organic).
Let it steep like that for about five minutes. Then, strain out the leaves and pour the tea over some ice to cool it down to a cat-safe temperature.
Now, for the fun part – serve the tea in your cat’s favorite water bowl or a cat-friendly cup, and enjoy the show!
Even if your cat just sniffs around without taking a sip, those catnip aromas will still lift their spirits.
Note: always remember not to go overboard with the catnip tea parties. Too much of it can upset your cat’s stomach, so keep it as a special treat for those extra cozy moments.
Interestingly, catnip isn’t just about getting your cat high. It’s like a super herb that can help ease their anxiety and is believed to work as a mosquito repellent.
Mixing up a mug of catnip tea is a breeze, and besides saving your floors from a catnip mess, this tea can also assist with common cat issues like arthritis, coughs, and fevers. It’s like a little herbal remedy for your furry friend.
Now, I always assumed that once my cats caught a whiff of catnip in the house, they’d go crazy for it.
But, believe it or not, convincing your cat to take a sip of catnip tea might be a bit of a challenge the first time around.
Some cats are a bit skeptical at first, but with a little patience, you might just introduce your furry friend to a new favorite treat. Remember, moderation is key, and this can be your cat’s healthiest treat.
So go ahead, brew up a batch, and treat your kitty to a sip of relaxation. Here’s to happy, chilled-out cats!
