Do your cats like catnip or not? My new cats never had it in their old home, but they seem to like it when I give it to them. Kitt liked it OK, but only in small doses.

It's supposed to be very good for them, it's harmless, aids digestion and helps relieve stress.
Where did you read this? All of the studies I have read on catnip have been inconclusive about this. Not that I have read a million studies -- I can't find a million as it seems not many have been done. But all the ones I read pretty much came up without a conclusion on *what* it does to a cat's brain. They know which chemical in it affects them, but not what exactly it does. They know it makes them act crazy and that they also respond to the aroma, but I have never been able to find a study that said what the function of catnip is.
