3 Fun Catnip Toys for Your Favorite Feline Valentine

It’s no secret many cats enjoy catnip, whether it’s dried or a living plant to roll around in. With that in mind, toys containing catnip make wonderful gifts for your putty tats regardless of the time of year, so why not get them some for Valentine’s Day? Surely you weren’t planning on not acknowledging them on the sweetest day of the year?!

If your cat(s) are among those that react positively to it, then here are three natural cat toys made from recycled or recyclable products for you to consider. But first, did you know…

Catnip & Cats

According to the Humane Society, “Catnip is one of the approximately 250 species in the mint family and has a leafy green appearance. Nepetalactone, the essential oil in catnip, can turn even the laziest couch potato into a crazy furball — if said furball happens to have inherited the sensitivity to its effects. The trait doesn’t emerge until a cat is between three and six months old; until then, a kitten will not have a response. Sensitivity to this herb is hereditary — an estimated 50 percent of cats have no reaction.”
