What does catnip do for cats?


1 Answer

When a cat eats catnip, it acts as a sedative, but when smelled, it causes the cat to go crazy. It is thought to mimic feline pheremones and trigger those receptors. Cats may react to the plant by rolling around, flipping over, and generally being hyperactive.
