Description

KONG catnip Naturals Premium Catnip is North American grown catnip of the highest quality. KONG catnip is harvested at the peak of its flavor, color and fragrance and field-dried. KONG’s premium leaf and flower cut gives you minimal stems and seeds and more of the essential oils that cause a reaction in most cats. Use as a stand-alone treat or in KONG refillable catnip toys.

KONG Naturals are ecologically responsible cat products. All ingredients and oils come from natural, renewable resources. These products are designed to appeal to the natural instincts of the indoor cat, providing fun with a purpose.

Catnip refers to a herb from the genus Nepeta, usually the plant Nepeta cataria. It is a member of the mint family and grows widely in Europe, Asia and North America. You may see it in the wild or even growing in people’s gardens.

The leaves and stems of the catnip plant contain an oil called "nepetalactone." When cats smell nepetalactone, it stimulates special receptors that sense chemicals called "pheromones." The result is a kind of chemical reaction that gives the cat a sense of euphoria or overwhelming happiness.

When a cat smells or eats catnip, nepetalactone enters their nose and activates sensory nerves. These send signals to the olfactory bulb of the brain for processing. This information is sent to the amygdala that controls emotions, and the hypothalamus that regulates body functions. We think that nepetalactone from catnip acts like a pheromone to cats, which is why their behaviour is similar to a female cat during heat!
