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 d ozens 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.

    My girls love this stuff. It sits on the coffee table, and every night when I get home from work, I sit on the couch and the girls jump up on the coffee table and give me subtle hints (i.e, knocking the container onto the floor) that they want some. I give them both a pinch each, and they spend the next 20 minutes enjoying their “treat”! Great stuff! Always fresh.

    I originally ordered another brand, my cat won’t touch it, so I called Chewy customer service and of course they not only switched my order to this FANTASTIC cat nip, but credited me the original order. My kitty, Freddy, LOVES this cat nip! ALWAYS FRESH, ALWAYS a hit. Thank you.

  • 3 cats love it!

    By on Top 25 Contributor

    This is one of the 2 brands of catnip that all 3 kitties love. They eat it, roll in it, chase each other around the house and finally take a long, relaxing catnip nap. They are picky about their catnip and some brands they totally ignore. According to them, there is a BIG difference. This one is at the top of their list of favorites.

    My gang love their organic catnip and it soothes over the occasional outbursts from having a multi-cat household. I sprinkle/rub it on their scratch pads and toys and they are in heaven.

    This catnip smells fresh and looks great, but my cat has a very ho hum attitude toward it. I don't know why since she does like catnip.

  • Crazy for Catnip

    By on

    Overall, I like Smarty Kat products. They're toys are especially fun and trendy. I decided to try the catnip (for my cats, of course). Both kitties love catnip and they go crazy over this! I also like this particular bottle as the cap allows for sprinkling. That comes in handy as I always like to sprinkle catnip on and freshen up their toys which are kept in a basket for them to take and grab. I recommend this product.

  • 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.
