Everyone knows than catnip can drive some cats crazy. In fact, people have tried to get high from catnip at various times, assuming that since it affects cats it should also affect humans (it doesn’t).
That might be a reason why the manager of a health and nutrition store in New Jersey got arrested after police found dozens of bottles of a cat sedative linked to bizarre behavior in humans. The bottles were labeled as “Catnip Cocktails” although they didn’t contain any catnip.
So give your cat catnip and stay away from anything suggestive of human consumption. Your cat will thank you for your discretion.
