NormanLOVES Catnip! He will chew it, eat it, lick it, roll in it and smell it.
After only a few minutes with his favorite treat, Norman becomes very
playful and frisky. He often runs around the house like psycho kitty
terrorizing Kiwi and Kylie and ambushing Penny theBeagle.. Eventually,

true that some cats are immune to its influence.
My cat Norman is obviously NOT immune to catnip. Most of his toys are stuffed with this

Catnip, a member of the mint family, is a harmless "high" for felines. Although many cats

is harvested when this essential oil production reaches its peak, and leaves and fragrant
flowers are carefully air-dried to preserve essential oils at their best.
