Catnip Toys for Cats

Keeping your kitty entertained can take a little effort at times. There are feathered cat wand toys, scratching posts, interactive and electronic cat toys, even cardboard boxes—and catnip, of course. Catnip is a plant in the mint family popular in herb gardens and even more so with any feline friend in your house.

FAQs About Catnip Toys for Cats

If you want to let your kitten experience elevated moods with a natural catnip toy, you might be worried about their safety. Luckily—when used correctly—catnip is not typically harmful to kittens. However, most felines don’t react to catnip toys for cats until they’re a little older—typically from 6 months to 1 year of age. There can be exceptions, and some kittens may be able to get catnip happy, but normally their sensitivity will increase with age.

Whether you are buying bulk catnip or have given your kitty a catnip cigar cat toy or catnip mouse toy, there is a point where catnip will lose its potency. Most often, catnip can last for around six months, depending on how it’s stored. If you’ve noticed that your cat no longer reacts to its catnip toys, it may be time for a refresh. Petco sells refillable catnip toys if your cat loves their toy and you don’t want to keep buying new ones.

In general, catnip can potentially elevate your cat’s mood. It can also be used to encourage play sessions to help them be more physically and mentally active. For some kitties, it can sedate and relax them. Finally, it can be used as a tool for training to promote positive reinforcement for good behavior.
