Catnip is to cats as pizzas are to computer engineers, so it’s a wonder it took so long to exploit the fact in an intelligent way. Give a cat a catnip ball, so the saying goes, and you can have them freaking out for minutes, but grow them a catnip patch and you’ll have them ecstatic for life.
Cue the Catnipbom. This little bundle is actually a fully formed growing package, which you lob onto a suitably sunny patch in your garden (or your neighbor’s if you want to make a new friend). You need to soften it with water first, so it breaks down nicely for the seeds to do their stuff, but after that you eventually end up with a totally home grown patch of moggy heaven. Yes yes, a catnip patch to be precise.
The rest, as they say, is up to you, kitty and nature. The best time to do the throwing is apparently in the spring, and it’s all made from nicely biodegradeable materials, so you don’t have to worry about ruining your organic radish patch. Priced at $16.39 / £9.99.
