What is catnip?
Catnip, Nepeta cataria, is a member of the mint family of herbs. For centuries humans have grown catnip for humans, but the herb is best known for its action on cats. The chemical in catnip called nepetalactone is what cats respond to. However, not all cats react to catnip. Kittens will not show the behavior until they are at least 6-8 weeks old.
About 80% of adult cats (including many kinds of wild cats!) react to this intoxicating herb. The catnip reaction is inherited, and some cats are totally unaffected by it, but when they do react – YEOWWW!

Most cats that are 6-9 months and older react to catnip; can see the color yellow; and enjoy the "bearhug" (simultaneaously kicking and biting). All three of mine are banana fans to different extents. One likes to sit and lick it. Eww. Another won't look for it, but if she stumbles upon it will look around furtively and then sit on it...for hours...eventually dragging it to her "secret" hidey hole for a good hour of cheeking. Kitty number three finds the banana to be an aggressor that needs to be pursued, taken down, and detained. Did you know bananas can fly? Cats, too. That catnip is funny stuff if you inhale. Which I do not, obviously.
Some cats simply don't react to catnip at a particular lifestage or at all. They may still have fun kicking the banana around. Or they may look at you like you have three heads.
Yeowww also sells other versions of this toy. Over time I have seen a fish, a lemon, a cigar, and some tiny fish. Skip them all in favor of the banana. The combination of the shape and the color just works...and you will want to replace it (ewww) long before the cats are ready.
A note on imitations: don't bother. I have, in times of need, purchased Yeowww banana knockoffs from my local pet store. Half the price--what could go wrong? The catnip scent wasn't that strong to begin with, and the poser bananas will fail to attract cats within a week. Although I'm all about half-price, it's just not worth it here. Get the good stuff.
I do not work for Yeowww! but my living room often smells like I do. =-)
I have two very large cats: one about 20lb and the other 15lb. Both were strays that somehow made their way into my home without me realizing it. Because they both grew up a little feral, they usually aren't interested in traditional cat toys. They will sometimes show interest in 'realistic' toys, but otherwise are more content to destroy household objects like earphones and electrical cords.
However, the second I unwrapped this toy (minimal packaging - just a ziploc, which I prefer), they went nuts. They played with this for hours and even the 20lb cat was able to kick at this. Even after all of that abuse, the banana didn't fall apart. It has a few bite marks, but no catnip is falling out. The first one I purchased seemed to lose its allure after about a month, so I put it in a ziploc bag with some catnip to infuse it again. That seemed to do the trick and they were very interested again. Vets recommend cycling toys anyway since cats will get bored.
I've also purchased other products from this brand and have been similarly impressed. My boys have also really liked Yeowww My Cats Balls, 3 Balls per Pack and it helps them get a bit more exercise.
Package was delivered. Cats were sleeping peacefully and cared not a bit about me and my activities for the day. I knew what was in the package but just left it sitting out. Within 30 minutes, their cat radar was engaged and they came to check out the package. They normally don't care. Taking turns to rub their faces on the package, I could tell they were in love :)
I opened the package and the 2 bananas were in a plastic ziplock style bag. I tossed the brown envelope to the side and one cat immediately decided she would sleep and love on the package. I "accidentally" just left the bag with the 2 bananas sitting there while I left the room for a moment and the other cat was attacking it. She looked up at me when I walked back in and clearly she was high on catnip. I removed the bananas from the package and I might as well have been holding a big steak for a hungry dog. I tossed the bananas in opposite directions and each kitty followed. They were busy for a long awhile.
I should have learned my lesson the last time I ordered, but managed to forget an important action with this one... I had thrown the packaging into my trash can in my home office. Later in the evening, I found the packaging shredded and strewn about my home office. The catnip is THAT powerful. I would encourage you to dispose of the packaging in a safer way - I really worried about my fur babies ingesting the plastic...
Christmas is coming - and the fur babies in my life will be getting fresh versions of these... I highly recommend! The carrots are pretty great too - the balls are OK. My cats prefer being able to attack the bananas - holding onto them with their front paws and kick at it with their back paws so the shape is better for that.

If you've never seen a catnip-loving cat react to a fresh, intense new catnip toy (like this one) coming out of the wrapper with a burst of aroma, you owe it to yourself and kitty alike. This isn't the cheapest toy, but even just my black cat's (pictured) first ten minutes with this banana was worth the price. Recommended.
