But Boots could care less. He seems to fall into that small range of kitties that catnip (at least the commercial dried kind I have) doesn't affect.
Has anyone here had luck with catnip alternatives? I'd like for Bootsy to have some fun too.
Chacho is around I think 7 months old and he just recently started showing more interest in cat nip toys. I had gotten him a cat nip cigar when I first got him and he paid no attention to it. Now he goes beserk. I also got little kitty catnip tennis balls and he goes crazy just licking them. They look like neon yellow pom poms now because him licking them all the time. So I'd say give him a few more months. Like others have said, a lot of cats don't really get affected back cat nip until they're older.
