This dried organic aerial catnip (Nepeta cateria) makes a medicinal treat for cats and humans alike. Catnip may be well-known for its ability to promote a calm nervous system, restful sleep, and healthy digestion in humans while producing a stimulating effect in felines.*
Embracing the crazy cat ladies we are, we're scheming up plans to rotate the donations of our proceeds from sales of dried catnip quarterly to various feline-focused non-profits in the Asheville, NC, area. So far on our radar: Mountain Pet Rescue, Charlie's Angels, Mary Paws, and Sister Kitten. Got more ideas? Let us know!
Our focus this quarter is on Mary Paws. Mary Paws Cat Adoptions is a rescue organization dedicated to helping unwanted animals find loving and permanent homes. Working with their strategic partners in Western North Carolina, they have helped hundreds of cats and kittens avoid homelessness.
