Paws down! Too much fuss. We're sticking with tried and true organic catnip.

@Kat - I was lucky and got my first branches when I lived in Calgary area, and could drive to the store they recommended. They sold nice clean branches with no bark strings or splinters (though I keep an eye on them as they're used). Since moving I ordered new ones by mail, it's a little more $$ but I trust them. I'm sure there must be stores in other areas that are good, too, just takes research online. But it sounds like catnip does it for your guys. Mine seem to like the honeysuckle even better than catnip.

LOL!
Your cats are amzing! Both of them! (hi Pearl!) And you totally caught the typical cat moves in your photos! :D (What's the name of the other cat? -ciao bel micetto!-)

I forgot to add: Patty and Tama (my bf's cats) love empty chamomile bags a lot. They act like they're doped! :) Animals are weird....and talking about weird animals: have you ever seen this?

Haha--I see you really are a keen observer!

Awwww. White kitty totally reminds me of our pretty white kitty, Smudge. We had her for 19 1/2 years. We called her Smudge because she had a little ash like mark on her forehead but as she matured it disappeared.

That cat could give a training session to other cats! But cats are so independent, none of the others would listen (or watch). Cats are like that.

This really gave me the smile I needed today. Our Finn has a rubbing problem so I think she'd love the stuff.

Wow. I'd never even heard of the feline effects of honeysuckle wood. I wonder what my 9 cats would think of it?
