Cats don’t have the same response to catnip. Some can have a ‘catnip high’ while others become more laid back; there also those that don’t react to catnip at all. In fact, about a third of the cat population doesn’t react to the herb.
Most young kittens and senior cats don’t appear to be affected by catnip. By the time a cat is about 3-6 months of age, you will soon know whether they are reactive to catnip or not by exposing them to the leaves or the plant itself.
Fortunately, there is no such thing as ‘catnip addiction’ in cats. For those that react to catnip, exposure can certainly change the mood that they are in. Once a reactive cat gets a whiff of the catnip or after chewing some catnip leaves, pet owners will surely be entertained watching their cats “perform” without any inhibitions.
