As the holidays roll around, ’tis the season to spoil your pets! (Well, that season is actually all year long.)

Catnip toys not only help stimulate cats into exercising, they can also relieve anxiety and stress in felines. Check out 7 fun catnip toys for all budgets.
Reminder: What is catnip?
Catnip is a variety of the Mint family that contains nepetalactone, an ingredient that acts as a stimulant on felines. It can also help relieve stress and anxiety in cats. Catnip is safe, although it may cause an upset stomach if ingested in large quantities.
