Do you know why Lions
and our sweet little old cat like the catnip plant?It excites them because it contains a chemical that resembles an excretion of the dominant females urine.

And I planted it for our cat ever year, just about all cat toys have it in them.

I didn't know that info either - - but are female cats drawn to it, too?
