    • LOL you basically contradicted yourself. MOST cats love it. Not all. It’s clearly stated by you and the article lol.

  1. That's why the article says cats, not cats and kittens. It's implied that only adults get enjoyment from it. Also, the reason kittens aren't affected is because their brain and nervous system isn't mature yet. Once a kitten is 7-8 months old, on average, they will start to feel the effects of catnip.
