When cats smell catnip, you’d notice their behavior changes. They may rub their heads and body on the herb, jump, roll and salivate which is similar to their behavior when they are in heat. This reaction only lasts for 10 minutes. But why do cats have this kind of reaction with catnip?
According to The Humane Society Of The United States, “The most intense catnip experience is an olfactory one—your cat smells the herb and promptly goes nuts. Researchers aren’t sure what the neurological explanation is, but it’s thought that catnip mimics feline “happy” pheromones and stimulates the receptors in the brain that respond to those pheromones. When eaten, however, catnip seems to have the opposite effect: the cat may become very mellow.”
In this video, it shows cats that have just had a dose of catnip happiness! Their reaction also made me dizzy and twirly and whatnot. Hahaha!
