Catnip As Behavior Tools

Most scientists agree that catnip provides a harmless recreation for cats. Certain types of honeysuckle shrubs prompt a similar reaction. For cats who respond, catnip can be a wonderful training tool.

Catnip builds the confidence of some shy cats, and it can be used to “spike” the legal scratch objects to help lure kitty to do the right thing. Catnip can help take the cat’s mind off of the scary car ride-or at least induce a catnip snooze so she doesn’t care anymore.

You’ll find catnip toys, herbs ,at local retailers. Be aware, though, overindulgence may “wear out” your cat’s response to the plant. An occasional treat is plenty.
