Catnip, a herbaceous plant, can have various effects on cats. But, can kittens safely enjoy this feline favorite?
Kittens may have a heightened sensitivity to catnip. It's advisable to wait until they're a few months old.
When introducing catnip to kittens, start with a small amount to gauge their reaction.
Observe your kittens for signs of playfulness and excitement. Some may roll, pounce, or frolic.
Emphasize moderation. Too much catnip can overstimulate kittens, leading to restlessness.
Consider providing catnip-infused toys for kittens. These toys offer a controlled catnip experience.
Remember that the effects of catnip are temporary. Kittens will return to their normal behavior once it wears off.
