I brought in some wood for the stove this morning, and one of the pieces had a sprig of pine needles on it. Pumpkin loved it, chewed it up. Pine needles? I mean I know catnip, but is pine a god winter catnip?
He is total garbage! Quick! Hide him on my trailer (Petstorejunkie).
My folks' cat takes a yearly chew on the blue spruce Christmas tree and then gets reminded why it isn't a good idea to chew on the tree with a prompt up-chuck.
Olives, especially black olives (kalamata), have a similar ingredient to the pheromones cats spread around when they rub their faces on things. If they react to catnip, they generally have a similar reaction to olives. I cannot bring a black olive into my apartment or even cook with olive oil without one of my cats going ape like she does when I give her fresh catnip.
Pine is really toxic to cats so I wouldn't give your kitty anymore. I did some research on this awhile back because I used to use Pine-Sol in my litter boxes, and the thought occurred to me I wasn't sure pine oil was safe for them, and it turns out that pine is really, really bad for kitties.
