Introducing Catnip to Your Feline

Introducing Catnip to Your Feline

We have heard that some feline parents don’t give their kitties catnip! There was no reason other than they just didn’t think about it! At Kitty Ka-Zoom we understand that cats ADORE catnip and if your kitten or adult kitty hasn’t used catnip, we have ways to introduce them to catnip. He or she will thank you for it!

Catnip can have different effects depending on the cat. Some cats get in touch with their wild side. They nibble or roll in catnip and get the zoomies. Other cats find it relaxing and mellow. You won’t know how your cat will react until they’ve had a chance to get their catnip fix. 

Kitties adore playing as much as they love sleeping. When they aren’t soaking up the sun on top of your refrigerator or a cat tree, they enjoy jumping, pouncing and embracing their inner tiger.

Indoor cats are at risk of becoming overweight if all they do is eat and sleep so it’s up to the cat parent to make sure your furry friend stays active. Whether that's with a cat toy, feather toy, catnip filled ball or a laser pointer to get your kitty up and (ka)zoomin!

How To Introduce Your Cat To Catnip

Don’t rush it. Don’t just buy a jar of Kitty Ka-Zoom, dump it on your cat’s toy and leave. Sprinkle a bit of our high quality, grown in the USA , organic catnip on the toy, call your kitty over and see how he reacts. Does he approach it with caution? Does he pounce on it, eat it, roll in it? How does he react once he’s done? Be attentive to their behavior following.

Turn it into an activity. We have designed toys that are unique and ideal for a feline’s playstyle. Place a pinch of catnip into a toy’s pocket, then toss it to your kitty. Watch how she kicks, chases, and nibbles on it. Your cat may even drag it to her favorite cozy, dark space and relish it in privacy – that’s purrfectly fine!

You can sprinkle a little catnip on your kitty’s food to enhance their breakfast and dinner. Don’t go overboard – just a pinch is all you need! Read the ingredients of our various blends and choose the one that fits your kitty best– a calming catnip or a catnip that inspires zoomies!

We would love to see your Crazy cats and how much they love their catnip! Share photos on our Kitty Ka-Zoom Facebook page
