Kitty Kush Catnip Review and Giveaway
There is little to no doubt that our Murfee likes catnip and I will admit that we indulge him. I have attempted to grow my own for him, but each time something unexpected happens to the crop. The first time we had a heat wave with wind and before I knew it the plastic pot disappeared. The second time we almost had a full crop and then magically it was gone. I am not sure if a neighborhood cat stole it, ate it or the magical catnip trolls took it. This last time life got in the way and I just plain forgot to give it the needed water and love it needed.
We had read that catnip does not affect cats under 9 months old, or until they reach sexual maturity, so we waited until he was about a year old. Ever since the introduction was made, Murfee and catnip are two peas in a pod. I recently came across a new product called “Kitty Kush Catnip” that resembles a salt grinder but grinds cat nip instead!
The basic idea behind this product is that it comes prepacked with cat nip pellets that are infused with essential oils and compacted together. When you want to give your kitty some catnip all you do is turn the built in grinder much like you would turn a salt grinder. A little goes a long way due to the concentrated nature of this product – I literally did less then one full turn for Murfee and that was enough.
In case you are unfamiliar with catnip it is a plant that is from the mint family that when ingested by cats (it does not affect humans and dogs) gives them an almost intoxicated effect. This “intoxication” can include things that range from playful and energetic playtime to the opposite effect of sleep and lethargy. Generally speaking, catnip lasts from anywhere to 5 minutes to 15 minutes.
Kitty Kush Catnip comes in a UV protected package, what this means is that it will block sunlight (which can destroy the pellets potency). Also added is a moisture absorber that helps to regulate the inside of the can. What this really all means is that you can store this package just about anywhere; well anywhere safe from your feline companions. We tried to keep this on the counter, but as usual Murfee was a step ahead of us and spent an evening trying to bust in the package. In the morning the package was unaffected by his efforts and subsequently was been moved in a cabinet.
I do not know what the catnip does to my boys brain or body but it definitely affects him. For the happiness he exudes makes my attempts worth it. Since I am always going to give him catnip I am going to provide the best, freshest and most concentrated products I can find. I can tell you that I am never going back to the dried catnip that has a tendency to spread in places you do not want it – Kitty Kush Catnip is our new favorite cat item!!!

I’ve had several cats over the years and all of them have liked catnip. Most of them got sleepy after.
Both of my cats love catnip. I would say it makes them more playful.
Let’s see I have 4 cats: One just turns into a blob and lays there…one will freak out running into walls and is paranoid..the other two are ok..
This looks awesome! I have two catnip lovers here. The older male kitty just lives for the stuff and loves to roll around and drool all over catnip toys in particular. My crazy quirky black female kitty seems to be more sensitive to quality or picky or something. Sometimes she ignores it and other times she loves it. Her addiction though is foam balls and playing fetch! I’ve actually offered her catnip before only to have her walk off and bring me back one of her fetch balls. Funny, isn’t it? It’s the foam balls we have to hide or she never ever wants to stop and will wake you up even demanding you throw her ball!
Yes my cat Tammy loves the nip. She would love this, and such a cool container. No more accidentally knocking over an open nip container!
When younger, it made them “turn on”, but, now older, it doesn’t do much or for very long.
