Now how cats react to catnip vary but there is an obvious difference between good and bad catnip. Samhain "plays" with catnip in a different way to other cats I have known, rather than throwing it around like confetti and rolling in it he prefers to eat it. This is quite normal and perfectly safe but his reaction to it is usually to mellow out rather than get hysterical and jumpy.
Today we've been playing with.....
|Happy Pet Pressed Catnip Leaf|
Full review including a video is after the cut....
This product was strong enough for the scent to penetrate the packaging and Samhain was getting super excited about it. In fact he started by licking the packaging while I examined the product. Once I gave it to him he was all over it, licking it, biting it, rubbing himself against it, pulling it about.
Better still, here is a quick video of Samhain's first impression on the pressed catnip;
He wasn't happy when I started to move it away from him but I had to after a while. I left it on our bedside table which meant he was milling around, craning his neck to try and reach his new catnip treat.

Overall I'm impressed and so is Samhain, this is a new way for him to enjoy the pleasures of catnip without it going all over the place.
I picked this up at my local pet shop for a reasonable £1.99
