Also, I'm looking for buckwheat. I've had it in bag form but wanted to also try this in loose form.
My cat has a 2 lb stash. No, she won't share!
Seriously, you can grow your own catnip (many pet stores like PetsMart have it or start with seed or get it from Walmart in the spring
) or you can try to get organic catnip for cats. The organically grown catnip I have is from http://www.kittybags.com/
and it's premium stuff. My cat loves it.
I, personally, don't like the smell of catnip, but I know plenty of people who do like it. Catnip is a member of the mint family and has relaxing properties for humans when drank as a tea.
BTW, cats must have the "catnip gene" to be affected by catnip. Young kittens are not affected by catnip. And when cats are done going bonkers, it relaxes them like it does us.
