Yes, you should do that I will order more seeds from ebay soon. If my cat wont react to this either, then I will consider making tea of it, hehe. You're lucky to have the seeds there, I don't think we have them in Norway.

Btw, I've heard that some of the cats that don't react to catnip, do react to the plant honeysuckle. You can also get toys with honeysuckle in them instead of catnip. I've ordered a few of those toys. I am excited to see if they work. Maybe that's an idea for you Crystal and also Irene?

Yes, it is okay if they eat it. The only difference between any nip, whether store bought or home grown would be in potency.

Some is very strong, some seems to ahve no affect at all, and everything in between!

From the article linked earlier:

Quote:
Some cats like to eat the leaves, and this is usually safe for most cats. If your cat is one with a sensitive stomach and vomits or has diarrhea as a result of eating the plant leaves, then you'll want to give your cat a toy with the leaves inside, instead of directly giving him the catnip.
I think fresh leaves would be more delicate.
