I don't own a cat, but I do have a stray that hangs out at our house. It's a love/hate unique relationship and sometimes I feed it when it looks sick. I went out of town and my partner bought a tiny cat lounge chair for our front porch, for the stray cat, as well as started feeding it daily. I know,
what's the point of this story, but just hold on.... No matter what, my partner couldn't get the cat to use it's new lounge chair and it really became an obsession of ours to get the cat to use its new furniture.I figured maybe if I tried some catnip it'd entice the cat to at least go near the lounger. I know that some cats don't respond to catnip, so I was taking a chance. However, put a small amount of cat nip on the chair and then looked out my window to find the cat at least acknowledging the chair and curled up around the bottom of the chair, again, not in it.The cat hung out by the chair for about ten minutes hanging out on the ground stretching away, which is kind of unusual for it to be so chill for being an on-guard stray.So, product works, packaging is cool, came as advertised, and we've only used just a pinch of the stuff, not much at all and gotten some pretty strong reaction to it.Photo's: So, the first photo shows cat chilling, second photo is a day later, I guess the cat left some catnip to come back to, and now he's chilling again. He's kind of a lazy bum now who seems to be having a pretty chill day, but, at least he's close enough to take a picture next to his little recliner.Update: we re-ordered recently, thought I'd share black kitty in his chair, he hangs out there now....we put a pinch of catnip on every 2-3 days, it's his new hangout.Add'l Update: Sometimes when I haven't been around, the cat becomes a creeper and stares at me as I open the garage door. Added photo of it glaring at me as garage door was opening until I put out more catnip. I mean, he won't let me pet him and he hisses at me, but, it seems we now have a mildly abusive relationship to his advantage.Oh, and he is in the chair all the time now.Add*l, Add*l update...it's been a few years later, I still order the stuff. I think Black Kitty is the same Black Kitty, it's been up for debate, but he still likes it and will frequent the chair quite a bit. Does he still hiss at me Absolutely. Does he give me any affirmation Absolutely not. Do I still feed him and give him cat nip, and in return does he still frequent our porch Yes. I still haven't had a bad batch that some people seem to reference.
