Why do so many cats not like catnip?

  • The ability to react to catnip has a genetic component.
  • If cats do not inherit that gene to take in catnip, it does nothing for them.
  • Of the third of cats that don't react, majority are females.

What Makes Our Catnip Different?

Catnip and Valerian Root use by The Luminous Pets

It's more than catnip...

...we blend in valerian root!

Valerian root elicits a similar effect, but it is stronger and longer lasting.

Cats that do not respond to catnip, tend to react to valerian root. This is because it doesn't require a genetic component to react.
