I’m not sure…should I look at it?

Your cat needs to look at it then destroy it.

premium North-American catnip

Pfff. That swill? My cats get the uncut fair-trade stuff fresh from Burkina Faso, ground by lava rocks and dried on a bed of organic banana leaves.

Or something like that.

Came here to ask Mark to reread the boingboing Style Manual.


#6

My cats are just looking at it.


#7

Between my three cats I have had to buy numerous versions of this toy. They do seem to love it the most.


#8

Our cats love this catnip Pollock (available here). I love the scraping sound when one of them licks it.


#9

That’s very tempting, but damn, three times as much for drunken dribbled colors?

Yeowwww! (accept no imitations!) makes a number of shapes of catnip filled toys; in my experience, cats go mad for the banana, to the exclusion of the other designs.

I think partly it’s because that size & shape is particularly conducive for cats to do the “bunny kick” maneuver

Came here to check for this comment, leaving satisfied.

I could sew some feathers to one of these bad boys and my cat would be in heaven for a week.


#13

I’m torn on the ethics of catnip…

Does it cause withdrawal or psychological dependence? I’ve never had a cat that liked the stuff. They always seemed vaguely disgusted by the stuff.


#14

Our cats like some catnip and other catnip they treat like stale oregano. They don’t seem to JONES for it, in the sense of having an addiction that I can identify. But they do get playful when they bite/lick/toss their catnip toys. They also seem to know when they’ve had enough and they will just walk away when they’re done (and they leave the saliva-wet catnip toy in the middle of the floor where I usually step on it and yell: “ew yucky!!”).

It’s vitamins for the brain man…


#16

Don’t know, but three of our cats get, shall we say, possessive when the nip comes out? To the point where each cat must be made a separate pile with several feet spacing the piles out?


#17

Not being told to just look at it produced a very specific flavour of existential angst I’ve never experienced before in my 41 years on this sphere.

In our house, Sojo’s Catnip is the cat’s pajamas.
