10+ Funny Pics Of Cats High On Catnip

If you’re a cat owner, having a small bag of green powder in your home means something very different from what most people would think. It’s that magical dust that turns domestic felines into wild jungle cats as soon as they get a whiff of it, and melts them into a motionless puddle of fluff if they lick it up. Enter the wondrous world of catnip, and the stoned kitties who can’t get enough of it.

Check out a list of cats who went on a serious ‘nip trip’ below, and just wish that you were on their level of ecstasy right now.
