What's a good age for a kitten to try catnip?
Scully has her Caturdays of catnip and Mulder also known as Bonkers seems to be very curious about it I haven't given her any because I'm not really sure if there are age risks (I don't think so but still better make sure).
She's 4 months (almost 5 ) http://www.addemoticons.com/emoticon/cat/AddEmoticons00947.gif

No age risks with catnip. However, most kittens don't really become receptive to the effects of catnip until they're a little older. My 2 didn't react to it until they were about 4 1/2 months, but it varies with each cat. Try it and see!

:laughing::laughing::laughing:, We gave Sweet Pea's litter of kittens (7 of them) some catnip at about 4 months old and it was just :crazy::crazy::crazy:. They went wild :crazy: and we had to separate them because they were getting too rough with each other :laughing:

Just an FYI - I have some cats now who could care less for catnip. Even in their adulthood. Probably 3/4 of my cats will express great interest in it. The other quarter sniff and walk away. Dart, my youngest, goes absolutely mad for it and has since he was around 3 months. Slobbering, the whole messy bit. :rolleyes:

Well I tried it like 3 mins ago and she liked it but she sneezed most of it again :laughing: I had to give Scully a tiny bit. Now they're wrestling :lovestruck: haha
Another question how often is healthy to give them catnip. I've heard once a week and that's what I do, I only pinch the catnip and give it to her (well now both)
How much do you give your kitties and how often?
