Valerian root and leaves are a cat attractant similar to, and as safe as, catnip. Valerian contains the cat attractant actinidine.
Cats react to catnip and valerian for different reasons. Cats go crazy for catnip because of a chemical compound called nepetalactone. In valerian root, the compound they're reacting is most likely actinidine… or it might be something simply called valeric acid. At least one study has shown that valeric acid acts like a cat pheromone, which may explain why some cats react to it and others don't. You can also blame valeric acid for the potent smell of valerian root! A bit like smelly feet!
Sprinkle a little on a cat toy or his scratching post, and watch the fun start!
The powder will arrive in a 25g resealable bag. Please keep it sealed when not in use, and don't leave it lying around, you might find the bag in pieces and the contents gone, and your cat will have a glazed look in his eyes ;)
