I've also encountered a couple housecats that went absolutely wild-aggressive on the 'nip. So much for bringing the feline a housewarming present...

Sometimes I look at what dog people are doing 'for their dogs' and I wonder if they really do love their dogs.

An older gentleman used to be an attendant at a nearby parking lot and would occasionally bring his dog with him. He had promised his late wife in the last coherent conversation they had that he would care for the dog as she would have. The dog didn't like being alone, but the man at least had the sense to leave Pooch at home in an air-conditioned house when sitting in a parking lot with no shade would be unpleasant or actually harmful. He admitted he was actually a cat person, but the dog didn't like cats, so that would have to wait.

One of my cats (now gone to Gooshy-Food Heaven) was a mean drunk. After the second time I didn't give her catnip any more. She honestly didn't seem to enjoy it, she just got weird and aggressive.

Their channel is awesome.

Household cats also react differently to 'nip. I had a couple of cats who would spend hours stoned out of their little minds, and others who looked at it like 'Meh' ...

An acquaintance of mine, who lived in a relatively small community, said there was one house not far from here where catnip (somehow) grew wild. She said it looked like a crack house for cats; you'd drive past and there'd be passed-out cats all over the lawn.
Some cats are simply unaffected, I've heard numbers ranging from 10% to 30%, but I'm inclined to lean toward the former. An old boss of mind told a tale of a cat he'd known, who was one of the immunes... and whose owner's back yard contained the neighborhood catnip patch. He became kind of the catty neighborhood by luring the other cats into his catnip patch, waiting for them to get stoned out of their gourd, and then beating the *$&)* out of them...

I had a little orange one who was complete unaffected. But then he was crazy enough without catnip.
