When I hear about cats doing flips around catnip and just overall going crazy, I admit that I get jealous. I wish my cats would do that! While they enjoy catnip and love catnip flavored toys, they do nothing more than licking the toys (with the exception of Amber, who “rabbit kicks”, but she does that anyway) and eating the catnip. Still, it’s nice to make them happy (which catnip does!).
