Melchett the cat loves catnip and his owner loves to take pictures of him and other cats. The other cats in the neighborhood also visit them to get their “fix”, like Benji, Tommy and Bob.
Melchett also has a brother, and between them, they only have 1 eye. Melchett had to have one removed because of cataracts and Gertrude lost both, because of cataracts too.
Nepeta cataria, known as catnip, is very attractive to cats. And not only for domestics, other cats like lynx, leopards, servals and cougars, and sometimes even some tigers and lions, enjoy the recreational effects of catnip. In general 2/3 of the cats feel a natural attraction to it. The most common effects are rubbing against the plant, rolling on the ground, licking it and chewing it. If they overdose, they start drooling, or become irritated or sleepy, they meow, grunt, purr and scratch a lot. But other than that, it’s harmless and fun and relaxes the cats.
