25 Photos Of Cats Who Found Catnip And Went On A Serious ‘Nip Trip’

Sharing is caring!

I believe that every cat parent can agree that catnip is a magical herb when it comes to our feline friends. It can transform our cats into wild and crazy jungle cats or cuddly furballs after just one sniff. But, why is that so?

Catnip (Nepeta cataria) is a common herb that belongs to the mint family. Its leaves are usually used to make tea, but the herb is also a main ingredient in some natural bug sprays.

Now, what effect does catnip have on cats?

Catnip’s leaves contain an oil called nepetalactone that can cause behavioral changes in cats after they sniff the herb. 

The herb mimics feline sex hormones, so cats usually display behavior similar to a female cat in heat. This includes affection, relaxation, and happiness, but some cats may also display aggression. 

Generally, catnip has a positive effect on cats. It helps them reduce anxiety, and stress, and relieve pain, which is why vets often recommend using catnip if the cat is facing previously mentioned issues.

It’s also important to note that not every cat will respond to the catnip herb, and each cat will react differently, you can also see it for yourself… Here are 25 cats who found catnip and went on a serious ‘nip trip’!
