Welcome to my shop encouraging cats to jump! In my shop you will find lovingly created catnip filled toys. Some of the toys have a removable catnip pouch so you can wash the toy or replace the catnip when the original one loses it potency. Some toys can be adapted from toys that you cat plays with on its own to a toy that lets you interact by dangling the toy and making your cat jump up for it!
Nepeta, the scientific name for catnip or catmint is a genus of about 250 species of flowering plants in the family Lamiaceae. The members of this group are known as catnip or catmint because of their effect on cats. Nepeta pleasantly stimulates cats' pheromonic receptors, typically resulting in temporary euphoria. According to traditional herb medicine, catnip tends to have a sedative effect on humans, so be careful! Catnip and catmints are mainly known for the behavioural effects they have on cats, particularly domestics. When cats sense the bruised leaves or stems of catnip, they may roll over it, paw at it, chew it, lick it, leap about and purr, or heavily salivate. Some will growl, meow, scratch, or bite the hand holding it. Some cats will eat dried catnip. Often, eating too much can cause cats to be overtly aggressive, typically making them hiss. About two thirds of cats are susceptible to catnip. The phenomenon is hereditary; for example, most Australian cats do not react to it. There is some disagreement about the susceptibility of lions and tigers to catnip. (Thanks to wikipedia for this)
