I've got 2 Cats and both must have the gene that determines if they're into Catnip. The stuff you get at the Pet Store is like schwag. I found a brand called "Cronic" on the web. The first time I opened the jar it was like opening my bud jar with dank buds. It smelled really good, was mostly ground buds and it only took a few minutes before both cats were all over me trying to get at the jar. I let them smell the jar with the lid cracked, then my Bengal started acting like a wild cat, pawing and clawing the jar trying to get her mouth inside. Both cats acted so funny just smelling the jar. I dumped a little bit on the carpet and they started licking, rolling and drooling over it. Eventually they ate every bit and started running around the house chasing each other. It's pretty obvious they loved this stuff. I let them have it about 2X/week. Now all they need to hear is me saying "CATNIP"...and wherever they happen to be in the house, they'll both come running to get some. It's like Kitty Buds.....they love it. My friend has a Female DSH Cat, and she could care less. I guess some cats just love it like mine, some don't. Let's hear about your Catnip Stories, and what brand you use. Cosmic is my favorite along with a bag of whole intact buds I got from Amazon. That stuff was pricy but looked so cool I had to try it. It's pretty good but Cosmic is cheaper. I took the whole buds, then added them to the jar of Cosmic which is ground up buds. It's funny how people see it sitting on my shelf, with the Stoned Cat logo from Cosmic Catnip Co....and think it's weed. Well...it is weed...for Cats.
