Nepeta cataria is a perennial herb from the mint family which is also commonly known as Catnip. It is a plant that makes cats exhibit strange but extremely cute behaviors. It is said that the term ‘Catnip’ originated from the response cats usually show after sniffing the plant. They roll, jump, rub their heads and bodies, they literally bathe in catnip. They just love it so much.
