We all know that most cats go crazy for catnip, the irresistible, mint-like herb that’s known to perk up even the most standoffish of felines.
Catnip releases nepetalactone, a chemical that acts as a pheromone to cats, and while not every cat will react to it, under most circumstances, cats seem to get “high” and exhibit a range of behaviors, from silly-looking rolling and tumbling to flat-out discombobulation.
Let’s face it, these days, animals getting goofy and enjoying themselves, entertaining us in the process, is exactly the kind of thing we all need right now.
So without further ado, let’s look at some of the best catnip and catnip-based toys you can buy online today.
