Catnip Garden

Kitty aphrodisiac en masse - hunting ground for dogs

What happens when you grow catnip in your backyard



Catnip Garden - growing catnip in your backyard

Catnip (nepeta cataria) is a strong-scented mint that contains a
volatile oil that’s easily released into the air. Biting or rolling on
the plant crushes the leaves, and releases the oil so
kitty can get a good sniff.
It doesn’t take much. Cats can detect catnip oil in the air at
saturations as low as one part per billion.

Rather than a simple smell, the chemical in catnip resembles
sedative components also found in the valerian plant, which
may be used in natural therapies to calm pets and people.
Catnip also may be similar to one of the substances found in
tomcat urine - gross to you, but a lovely smell to the cat!
A pheromone in urine often triggers the same sort of
behavioral reaction in cats as exposure to catnip.
