    Cat nip is just a herb - looks a bit like a small leaved mint - that has the effect of making cats go a bit loopy :crazy: Not all cats are affected by it and I wouldn't spray all of your cats' toys with it.

    Jumpy luuuuuuuurrrves it!!!! None of my other cats have loved it that much though!! :D

    Mind you, he doesn't seem so keen on the spray, it must be quite weak! He loves the catnip bubbles and any catnip toys! :)
