    The chemical compound in the mint family plant that attracts and affects cats is called nepetalactone. ... When a cat eats catnip, it acts as a sedative, but when smelled, it causes the cat to go crazy......... it doesn't have the same affect to all cats it doesn't affect my cat at all, she is not interested at all

    The chemical nepetalactone is the active ingredient in catnip that drives them wild.
