    Some friends of mine planted something in a flat, about 2 feet by´╗┐ 3 feet. The plant looked like grass growing. Their cat loved to lay in it and sometimes he rolled around on it. I thought they told me it was catnip, but obviously it wasn’t. What plant could it have been? Their cat loved it!

    Cats like many different herbs and of course grass. Grass is actually good for them! It helps their digestive system, supplies them vitamins and chlorophyll´╗┐ Here are some other plants they may like and are safe, Valerian, Cat Thyme, Cat Grass, Spider Plants, Lemon Grass, Cat Mint, Mint and Goldenseal. Be careful as some house plants are dangerous to cats….there is a long list of´╗┐ house plants toxic to cats…see user.xmission.com/~emailbox/pl┬ş┬şants.htm for´╗┐ the complete list.

    first yr I grew it outside I miscalculated on all the cats it would attract. Many times I would find cats going crazy on it; to the point they would get “drunk” and literally be staggering around the´╗┐ yard. So now I grow it on my deck. and what do you know,every once in a while, some cat will figure out how to scale up a post. But my cat loves having his own stash.

    That is great! Ours is inside a fence in the backyard but I do see a cat now and then out there. I bet the catnip is attracting them! But then again,´╗┐ most of our cats were rescues from outside our yard!

    I´╗┐ did not know what you were referring to however listening back to the video I was laughing. That is my Amateur Radio (Ham radio) It does sound weird and kind of scary, especially if off frequency from the transmitting station. It will sound kind of garbaled and very strange. I have other videos which show one of my radios and how to work various controls, etc. If you view them you will hear the same noises when I am operating it.

    follow your method for the catnip on the cookie sheet but set the oven´╗┐ to 175f, dries in 30min-1hr. no risk of burning at this temp

    Thank you! For the first time in several years my catnip plant did not come back. I wonder if my yard people sprayed and killed it? We will have to get another catnip plant and be´╗┐ sure it does not get sprayed. Plus I certainly do not want it sprayed and the kitties eat it.

    I keep planting seeds in pots, keeping them watered, in my sun room, and none of´╗┐ the seeds have come up! What am I doing wrong?
