Cats absolutely love catnip! So, without a doubt, catnip toys make a wonderful gift for your cat. Here you will find several ideas to help you find the perfect catnip toy for your furry companion.
It is well-known that catnip causes an exhilarating reaction in cats. Everyone who owns a cat has seen how cats respond to catnip.
Most cats go crazy when given catnip… they eat it, they rub it, and will roll over it in excitement.
So, what is catnip? Catnip is a type of grass native to Europe. It contains the chemical nepetalactone, which triggers the “catnip response” in cats.
It is no surprise that kitties also enjoy catnip-scented and catnip-filled toys. Catnip-toys provide your cat with both entertainment and the amazing effect of catnip.

Toys your cat will enjoy
A catnip toy will definitely provide lots of fun for your kitty. Here are some ideas:

- Refillable catnip scented-toys
Has kitty gotten bored with her toy? Do you think that maybe the scent of catnip has worn off? You can always refill kitty’s toy with fresh catnip. What a great idea!
- Catnip balls
