Oh, and raynbow - those toys sound cute, but my feline is oddly immune to catnip. I have a packet of it and I was thinking of making toys if anyone was interested...but i've got plenty of other stuff, I don't need to make them. Elvis mostly like to play with mice & bugs...and bite plastic baggies, for some reason.
That cat looks like it wants to rip your head off. hehe
The 3 out of the 5 cats I live with love the nip. I've started calling it cat crack instead.
My mom had a Siamese cat that wasn't interested, her vet said some breeds are just immune. I was curious, so this is what wikipedia says: "Approximately two thirds of cats are susceptible to the effects of catnip, as the phenomenon is hereditary."
