Cats Love Mint

Cats actually do love a herb from the mint family.  Cats love Catnip.  It's a perennial plant, native to Europe, but now plentiful in the United States.
Cats Love a Mint!

Cat's, as many of you know can have interesting behavior when given the plant. Nepetalactone is the chemical that triggers the wild response in cats.  Even large exotic cats can be sensitive.

Although it is not known exactly why cats respond as they do to catnip, it's definitely a widespread response, and most do! Cat's like mint!

 Marietta veterinarian+Julian Peckich DVM and his animal clinic +Marietta Vet Clinic welcome you and your cat or kitten to the pet clinic for well care or sick care.
