Dragon Nippy Catnip Blend || HomeGrown || Hand Blended || All Natural || No Chemicals || Kitty Tested
Our Dragon Nippy Catnip Blend is a specially formulated mixture of two plants that cats just love. We grow both the catnip and the cat mint in our garden with absolutely no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Any fertilizers that we use are mixed by us and we only use other herbs. They are completely pollinator and bug friendly. You can see the honeybee on the picture in the listing working away on the catnip flowers. We love our pollinators. You can trust that our Dragon Nippy blend is 100% safe for your beloved feline. We grow, harvest, dry, and package all of the herbs by hand, on location. We noticed that most of the catnip in the store had formaldehyde warnings on the labels. We love our furbabies and we refused to give them chemicals. That is how we started growing catnip in our garden. Our own cat, Dragon, the namesake of the brand, gets this catnip blend on a regular basis.
This listing is for a package filled with catnip. There is over two cups in each package, or 2 oz by weight.
"The most intense catnip experience starts with the nose—one whiff of the stuff and your cat promptly goes nuts. Researchers suspect that catnip targets feline "happy" receptors in the brain. When eaten, however, catnip tends to have the opposite effect and your cat mellows out.
Most cats react to catnip by rolling, flipping, rubbing, and eventually zoning out. They may meow or growl at the same time. Other cats become hyperactive or downright aggressive, especially if you approach them.
Usually these sessions last about 10 minutes, after which your cat loses interest. It may take as long as two hours for him to "reset" and become susceptible to catnip again. Be mindful of overindulgence though—cats are unlikely to overdose on catnip, but they can get sick if they eat too much. Trust your kitty to know when they've had enough.
A snack worth sharing Catnip isn't just for cats! It's been grown in medicinal gardens for centuries for its sedative effect on humans. Made into a tea, catnip has calming properties similar to chamomile. Concentrated nepetalactone also makes for a powerful mosquito repellent. The only hitch is that it lasts just a few hours." - Humane Society of the United States
