Catnip has the ability to drive some cats absolutely wild. Combined with a catnip toy or other fun elements, you have one excited cat on your hands.
A toy is a perfect way to encourage them to get plenty of exercise and tire them out so they get enough rest. Playing can also help them to give in to their natural instinct to hunt, scratch and bite.
Catnip toys will usually be filled with dried catnip. This is a natural herb that around 50% of all domestic cats go wild for. It is the oils within the herb that cause this reaction.
If the catnip is in a toy, the oils are slowly released and linger for up to a few months. The majority of toys can be refilled once this effect wears off. However, catnip sprays are also available if the toy needs topping up over time. So don’t worry – catnip toys can last for just as long as ordinary toys.
These are the best catnip-based cat toys out there, which will guarantee hours of fun for your feline.
