Not all cats are affected by catnip. The common behaviors when cats sense the bruised leaves or stems of catnip are rubbing on the plant, rolling on the ground, pawing at it, licking it, and chewing it. Consuming much of the plant is followed by drooling, sleepiness, anxiety, leaping about and purring. Some will growl, meow, scratch, or bite the hand holding it. Some cats will eat dried catnip; often eating too much can cause cats to be aggressive, typically making them hiss.
In Humans catnip is a mosquito and fly repellent.
Catnip has soft aromatic leaves with purplish-white flowers appearing in clusters at the end of the stems mid-summer. Hardy clump forming perennial that cats enjoy rolling in. Plant in window boxes or as a ground cover.
