@sirenstarlite goblin’s first experience with cat nip lol #fyp #cat #catnip original sound – sirenstarlite
Catnip can be a heck of a drug for our feline friends. Cats have all sorts of different reactions to the ‘nip, but Goblin, the kitty in the video above, can barely stay upright, even in the litter box!
The funny cat is using the potty, and the catnip is kicking in hard. Goblin tries to stay awake, but it looks like this feline is zoning out and about to drift to sleep as their head gently leans against the toilet. Hopefully Goblin finds a comfier place to snooze before entering dreamland.
Share this funny video with someone who could use a smile today! And if this video has you wanting to try some catnip with your kitty, here are a few tips for doing it safely.
How Can I Safely Give Catnip To My Cat?
Catnip comes in many forms, including dried catnip, fresh catnip plants, and various gels that can you can administer to your cat.
With dried catnip, you can sprinkle some on your cat’s favorite sleeping spot or cardboard toy. In some cases, rubbing the dried catnip between your fingers can help make it smell more appealing to your kitty.
If your cat prefers fresh catnip, you can leave a catnip plant out for them to snack on at their will. You can easily grow catnip yourself.
While catnip is generally safe for cats, too much can result in a few unwanted side effects. Some of the most common side effects include vomiting, diarrhea, and upset stomach. Keep an eye on your kitty if this is their first time trying catnip.
And did you know some cats don’t react to catnip at all? Luckily for those felines, there are a few catnip alternatives that you can try. They include valerian, silver vine, cat grass, cat thyme, or tartarian honeysuckle sawdust.
All of these alternatives have their pros and cons, so read all about them here!
