Max-nip™ brand catnip was named for our daughter’s 18-pound gray-striped tabby and is the treat of choice for our beloved office felines. After reading about the pesticides used in commercial catnip, our youngster was concerned about catnip coming from unknown sources. “Max” was consuming catnip while playing and she wanted only organically grown herbs for her precious friend. In light of this, we made arrangements with a certified grower/supplier from the days when we owned a herb farm. Both Max and his sidekick, Bruce (our gray and white, part-Siamese stray) showed much more interest in Max-nip™ than in any of the pet store brands, because of the freshness of the herb and our storage techniques.
We have sold this popular, pure blend of chopped leaves and buds (no sawdust filler) at the flower shows for many years and our then-young child learned about “product evaporation” early one morning, long ago, when a couple of rather “stoned” kitties were amidst a sea of leaves and torn bags. (Catnip should be kept securely away from tooth and claw in the fridge.) For those of you who have been receiving our print catalogs for several years, "Max the Cat" was featured on the front cover of our Fall Reference Guide in 2002.
Kitty needs catnip right away? Please add $3 for postage & mailer for 3 bags in an advance shipment, otherwise we'll simply enclose it with your bulb/peony order at no additional cost. 1/3 oz. net wt.

How to Use:
Sprinkle small amount of 100% Organic Max-nip™ on scratching post, carpet or favorite toy. Put a tablespoon into an old sock along with some "crunchy", crumpled paper, knot the end, and watch the fun! Seal bag in recycled glass jar to maintain freshness and to keep kitties from helping themselves unattended. Each bag, 12 gr. net weight, is about one-half cup in volume.

"Thank you for a fantastic product. I was barely in the door when all four of my cats appeared to see what had arrived in the mail. They tried to open the box before I could get to it. When I opened the box I was amazed by the absolute wonderful fragrance of the enclosed bags of catnip. I instantly thought it would make a refreshing cup of hot tea.
Each cat reacted a bit differently to his share of the booty. Magic delighted in rolling about and covering himself in the leaves. Sunnie pawed furiosly into the carpet with his share. BigFella almost inhaled his as he chewed up his share, and Tygrr sniffed and pushed and rubbed his face into his share.
This is perhaps the very best catnip I have found and I thank you for a great product at a price that is less expensive than a quality locally produced product.
I would use it in a dish of potpouri, but I know the dish would never last on the table as the boys would knock it to the floor for their personal indulgence.
