When do cats start to react to catnip?

i bought my 5 month old kitten some catnip and she doesn't like it... sooo i know that some cats dont have any reaction to it, but i'm just wondering when do cats start to react to it if they do like it?

I believe I read it to be around 9-10 months, but I could be mistaken. Callie just turned 9 months old a few days ago, so out came the catnip.....he got a little excitement over it, but not much. However, it's the most I've ever gotten out of him. He's well on his way....I can't wait! They're so funny on the stuff.... Bailey still couldn't care less...he's still got a couple months to go.

Most often, I read that they will not react to it unitl they are about a year old. My older cat could care less about catnip until she was at least 2 years old. My four month old kitten has already shown an interest...(she smells it and licks it and rubs all over on the floor when it's around).

I think it depends on the cat, but your kitten's reaction is NOT uncommon. Some cats never grow to like it, but usually it just takes time.
