Do you have a cat who could care less about Catnip?

I'm just curious, Pippit is just over a year old now and she has absolutely no interest in Catnip.

I've tried all types, shapes and interesting little containers to peek her interest, but nope, she just does not care for it.

Give her an empty box instead, now that is fun....

Does your cat enjoy catnip?

In reality about only 75% of cats are affected!! I always thought the percentage would be higher. I have 4 cats and they are so so on it. I think they have to be in the mood for a little partying :)

Gee--let me think.....YES, Zac LOVES catnip! KeyZo, Fuzzy, and Skizzy also like catnip, but aren't as crazy over it as Zac is. Chetzer, as usual, is the "oddball". He definitely shows little/no interest in catnip, and I used to attribute this to him being the "designated driver". In reality, I don't think Chetzer has the catnip gene. (Some cats simply do not.)

My two indoor cats love it, one likes to roll on it only and the other one loves to eat it. I grow it for them outside and snip the tops and bring in to them. They like it fresh only and pay no attention to the dried.

My youngest cat murphy loves catnip,
doesn't go bonkers over it , (depending on what brand you give him)
my oldest cat kado, doesn't really care for it all that much anymore...
but then he will be 19 years old in november...
he will enjoy it a little and then leave it alone

I heard everyone raving about catnip -- but, my cats are not impressed either. Go figure! Winnie, on the other hand, loved this one straw ball that supposedly had catnip on it -- i don't know whether it was the actual straw ball that she loved, or the catnip smell (by the way, i don't know what catnip smells like).

I think the experts say that 1 in 4 cats have no interest in catnip. The current clowder that live with us breaks down to: Ditto has no interest, Nine and Seven are major crazy about it, Dash really likes it and Smoke and Tweak enjoy it.

Get Cosmo organic or a specialty catnip. It makes a world of difference.

I have had many indoor only and outdoor cats that absolutely loved it! And other cats that could care less. It's all in the individual cat's taste.
