My sister, Amy, was out of the country over the New Year, so I visited her Ragdoll cats, Ash and Addie a few times. Ash and I have a routine where I give him a pinch of catnip on his cardboard cat scratcher when I visit….usually when I visit by myself and Amy is out of town. Several weeks ago, I came to visit Amy, not the cats, per say – and after I had been there for 15 minutes, we heard something fall in the living room. Amy and I both looked at each other wondering what it was – went into the living room and there Ash was sitting by the tub of catnip, next to the scratcher. In other words, he was trying to tell me he’d been waiting for his pinch of catnip. HA! Smart cat. So now, I definitely have to do it when I go over – and this was one of the times – but we were in the basement (I had scooped the litterbox and started a load of laundry). Here they are with a tub of organic Yeowww! Catnip. You can buy it on Amazon for $8.65.
Do your cats like catnip? Do you give them loose catnip or only toys like the Yeowww! Catnip Banana that has catnip inside of the toy?
