This spring I grew a small patch of catnip in my garden for the first time. It is coming up very well and Velvet has been enjoying a nibble here and there. My question is does anyone give their cats fresh catnip on a regular basis? Is there any health benefits or problems that can arise from frequent doses of catnip?
i grow catnip, too... it is such a rip off to buy that stuff. i dont know the specific health benefits to cats, but i do know that catnip is used in human herbal medicine to treat anxiety, insomnia and migranes and can be taken for mild stomach troubles.
