Does catnip really attract stray cats?

TikTokers were all about this video, with one quipping, "My catnip brings all the cats to the yard." Lots of other users said they were ready to try this method of attracting cats themselves.

Catnip, or Nepeta cataria, contains a compound called nepetalactone, which makes cats go wild or chill them out if ingested.

"Cats love catnip because it makes them feel good," animal experts at Purina noted.

This TikToker wasn't the least bit upset that her daughter attracted a glaring of cats to their backyard, as in the comments, she admitted she might use this trick more often!
