Description

SmartyKat Organic Catnip gives kitties a burst of energy with premium organic catnip. Cats in the wild get all the stimulation they need from tracking down prey, but indoor kitties might need some motivation to bring out their hunting instincts. A pinch of this irresistible catnip goes a long way. Sprinkle it on scratchers and your cat’s favorite toys to spark a round of playful exercise.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is catnip?

Catnip is a natural herb that is related to mint. It contains a chemical compound called nepetalactone, which induces a harmless physiological reaction in some cats. Please note that not all cats react to catnip, and most kittens will not enjoy the effect until they are 6-9 months old

What is in your catnip?

Our catnip is 100% pure organic catnip. It is grown and processed without pesticides or chemicals in accordance with National Organic Program regulations.

How do I use catnip?

Catnip can be used on toys, scratchers, bedding or by itself as a treat. Rub it into the surface of a scratcher or bed to entice your cat. Sprinkle it on wet or dry cat food to encourage picky eaters. There are also dozens of refillable catnip toys on the market (we suggest the SmartyKat® MadcapMouse™) as well as toys, scratchers and bedding that have catnip hidden inside. Tip: Put a fabric toy and some catnip in a sealed plastic bag overnight. The catnip aroma will permeate the toy and create an irresistible treat!

Can my cats eat catnip?

Yes. Cats enjoy eating catnip as well as playing with it. Unless they have a rare allergy to catnip, it is safe for them to ingest.

How will catnip effect my cat?

The effects of catnip vary from cat to cat. Some cats become excited, hyperactive or aggressive. Some will become lethargic and fall asleep, while others may exhibit a dizzy or drunken effect. However your cat reacts, remember that catnip is not harmful to your cat, there is no way to overdose on it. Most cats know when they have had enough and will stop playing with it.

Will catnip harm humans or dogs if consumed?

No. Catnip is a harmless herb. While SmartKat® catnip is not intended for human consumption, some people believe that catnip has a calming effect when brewed as a tea. Similarly, catnip will not harm dogs if ingested, but they will not experience the effects that cats do.

  • Catnip Junkies!

    By on

    My babies LOVE this product, even the ones who aren't usually catnip kitties. They hear me open the container and come on the run. My biggest catnip junkie is always trying to either put her head in the jar, an impossibility and/or reach in with her paw and pullout as much catnip as she can!

  • Not very potent

    By on

    Pro: The quantity you receive was a good value for the price. Most stores only sell .5 or 1 oz. packs. Con: Not very strong. My pet loves this brand, but when I put this down he would not touch it. It barely has a catnip smell, even after shaking it and trying to crush it up a little bit by hand.

  • Crazy for Catnip!

    By on

    I opened the container of catnip and the smell of freshness was wonderful to even me! My cats sit up straight hoping to be the first to have a little catnip sprinkled by them. They love to smell it and roll in it. They are really hysterical. their excitement never gets old . . . I love it!

  • Great fun!

    By on

    I've used other catnip and found suspicious pieces of gunk or things that just looked too sketchy to give to my cats. This brand is continuously high quality. Definitely the best I've found!

  • Not a welcome change

    By on

    I used to buy the Kong brand and my cat is used to that. I wasn't aware that even catnip would probably smell different to my cat because she doesn't like this one.

  • None of my cats liked this

    By on

    I've got three cats and they all LOVE canip. I just take the container out and they know what it is and come right over. One cat eats all he can get and the other two just roll around in it and wrestle with any toys that happen to be around. What I noticed when I first opened this is that it doesn't smell like standard catnip. To me, catnip smells a lot like alfalfa hay and this was nothing like that. With this stuff, they got all excited cuz they recognized the container but when I put it down they didn't want anything to do with it. They kept hanging around me wondering where the real catnip was. This stuff has was set out a couple days ago and it's been left alone, and that's not normal I've got three cats and they all LOVE canip.

  • Cat's get a "high"

    By on

    It is so funny watching the cats get their "fix" of the cat nip. After they roll around in it, they get up and have a look on their face like, "This is the best stuff around." Then they go running off for a few minutes "loosing" their heads and then come back and get rough and tough with their fur toys and rolling in the cat nip again.
