Stuff about Catnip other than the fact that it attracts cats

Stuff about Catnip other than the fact that it attracts cats. It actually attracts only 50% of cats!!!!!!
Usually its the smell that attracts them and usually it repels cats under 7 months of age!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Moving on to the stuff thats actually cool...

  1. Its known to be a cockroach repellent!
  2. Ever wonder why bug repellent often fails to work? Its because it doesn't contain but repellent!!!! OMG! Its true that catnip kills pesky mosquitos better than most bug repellent!
  3. Catnip speeds up the healing of paper cuts and other tiny but painful annoying cuts.
  4. Repels mice. Probably because it contains the same kind of chemicals as male cat pee. Thats why if your cat is a male and uses the litterbox, there would probably fewer mice in ur house that are alive :-) This is also the reason why female cats are sometimes more attracted to catnip than male cats.
