I have been buying this for about 7 years. The last 3 I bought have had large sharp twigs. I tried to crush it with my hands and was pierced by the twigs in there. I have read on different sites of people saying the same thing so I don't know what is going on with Smartykat but they need to rectify this before someone's cat gets hurt.
Got this stuff as a Christmas present for my cats and I am happy to say that it seems like all nine cats absolutely love this stuff! The last time I bought catnip I bought the Frisco brand and my cats liked it, but not all of them and they didn’t go crazy for it like they are for this stuff!! All in all I am extremely satisfied, and as long as this is in stock, this is what I will be buying from now on!
We have a stray cat for about a year now and this has been a helpful product for her adjustment to being only an indoor "pretty kitty". thank you
Have tried other Brands and my Guy puts his nose up to them? SmartyKat Organic is the only brand he likes.
My cat does not get excited from cat nip like other cats, she just likes at it. Ordered smarty cat because it is organic. It is full of twigs or stems but took a chance and gave her some. She caughed and choked on it. Through it in the garbage. From the field brand is the way for me to go. Not saying other cats could tolerate smarty cat, just not mine
Buy for special occasions to give ALL THE CATS a treat. Don't buy toys with stuffing cats tear them apart. They love rolling in this.
This is the only catnip that I buy for my cat and he loves it!
For years this was my catnip of choice due to being 100% Certified Organic (& reasonably potent despite occasionally being over-ground) but the last couple of 2 oz jars (& their replacements) came in packaging marked only "100% catnip" instead, no longer certified organic in any way. Unfortunately Chewy was unaware & lacked an explanation, & still hasn't seen fit to update the listing info/pics to reflect the change in the weeks since, & I'm awaiting a response from SmartyKat to provide details about what pesticides/herbicides might now be present before giving it to my cats, & explain why this change came about. Regardless, because this product is apparently no longer pesticide/herbicide free despite the listing, seems prudent to put it out there so folks might be made aware. Truly unfortunate that the manufacturer & a distributor are so slow to explain or update their information, & that I can no longer feel confident about what isn't in it before giving it to my kitties. Pic shows the new packaging on the left compared to the old.
This is a great product for cats. It is not too strong or not to low. My cat is one and half years old. and loves it.
I ran out of catnip and decided to give this a try. Cat didn’t like it, just sniffed on it and moved on. I tried to get her to try it the second time the following day and she still didn’t care for it. Placed a treat on top of it, ate the treat and ignored this catnip. Will have to buy the catnip she has tried before.
