During kitchen clean-up last night, I noticed Audrey looked bored so I rolled her mouse in a tiny bit of fresh, organic cat-nip and tossed it to her.
She had never experienced cat-nip.
and then it changed.
"EARTH to AUDREY"
Her eyes dialated and she became a little nasty. Ears went back and she growled at the other cats nearby. Luckily, the effects of the cat-nip lasts only minutes.
"What the he** was that?""Better sleep it off, Audrey."
You're in the B category...Best Not Given.
She was back to her normal antics within minutes.
Cat-nip is not for every cat. Some will experience a 'high' to the extent that they will become very kittenish and want to play non-stop. Some, like Audrey. will feel odd and become aggressive. It is best that these cats do not play with cat-nip toys. The only way to know whether your cat is fine with it is to give just a tiny amount under supervision.
