About Our Premium Milled Organic Catnip:

"Catnip" is the common name for a perennial herb from the mint family. Catnip naturally aroused your kitty's feel good senses.

Catnip provides a natural “feel good” experience for kitties. When offered to your kitty an amazing reaction* generally occurs! Your kitty will rub it, roll around in it, kick at it, and generally go nuts for about two to three minutes. After that, most kitties lose interest and walk away.

(*We say generally because not all cats have a reaction.)

Because there really isn't any scent that causes this sort of giddy reaction in humans, catnip can be hard for most people to understand.

Although no one that we know can explain exactly what happens in the cat's brain, it is the chemical nepetalactone in the catnip that triggers the response.

Catnip is considered safe, natural and non addictive. CityCats.biz uses only premium, organic, milled catnip. Our catnip is free of pesticides and bugs that could be found in other brands of catnip.

Catnip is fun for you and your kitty.

The oil is locked in the dried herb, so when you offer it to your cat in a toy or loose leaf rub the catnip between your fingers or squeeze the loose catnip or toy to help release more of the oil.

Some research suggests that the catnip response is an inherited gene that not all kitties have. So in some instances your cat may not have a reaction to catnip.

Caution: If you’ve never used catnip before, and you have more than one cat, it is a good idea to try it out on each cat separately before introducing it all at once to the entire group. Catnip may affect some cats with a slightly aggressive behavior rather than the general playful behavior enjoyed by most cats.

It is also possible that some cats may develop a tolerance to its effects.

The catnip effect lasts about 2 to 5 minutes. After that, your cat will likely lose interest and just walk away from it.

Make your own catnip toys with our Organic Catnip

Here's an inexpensive way to create your own catnip toys. Use our catnip to fill the toe of an old sock, knot the sock, and give it to kitty.

Here's another great tip. Keep a few fuzzy toy mice marinating in a container filled with our catnip so they'll be ready to go when it's time to party. 

Catnip (Nepatia cataria) is a plant native to North America. Fresh leaves of the catnip plant have a mint-like scent. Contact with this plant causes a peculiar reaction called the catnip response. The primary active compound in catnip is nepetalactone.


Catnip is commonly incorporated into cat toys. It may be applied to the surface of scratch posts to attract a cat’s interest.

Catnip is available in dried form and marketed as a cat treat. Catnip may be grown outdoors or in indoor gardens.
