  • One of my cats had never reacted to catnip and was never a big fan of toys. I was given one of your catnip sacks and he loved it! They have been a constant in my house ever since.

    - Kyrie Sawicki
  • All of my cats loved them! I would travel almost two hours to get them!

    - Beth Moore
  • I love Dr. Pussums there is no other! My cat went crazy rolling on the invoice, since I had to hide the box for Christmas.

    - Stephanie Wilking
  • My cats have been loving Dr. Pussums for years! They have the bigger squares and kickers and are often seen cuddling them. The owner takes in elderly cats and loves them like she had them forever. Thank you Dr. Pussums

    - Lisa S
  • Dr. Pussums catnip is the best catnip out there! I have purchased other catnip toys from big-box stores as well as from smaller shops on Etsy and nothing compares. My cat goes absolutely wild for their catnip, so it has been my go-to for the past few years. I was especially thrilled when I found the ‘kicker’ long catnip pillow, as my cat loves to kick. These catnip pillows are made to withstand even the most rambunctious playtime. Not only that, but the packaging and colors they come in are adorable. Love the seasonal items!

    - Jennifer & Milky Way
  • I love Dr. Pussums because my cats and my dog love them so much! Only toy all three of them will play with! It is very amusing to watch a pup, play with a cat toy! Also the quality and durability is fantastic.

    - Alisha Marie
  • I have purchased cat toys several times from this company. My five cats love them! Out of all the catnip toys I’ve ever bought, the toys from Pussums are their absolute favorite! The toys are filled with catnip and no fillers and come in so many different sizes and colors. I don’t live close enough to visit their retail store but ordering online is easy and shipping is always prompt

    - Suzanne K
  • My cat Chloe was actually chewing the package before I got home. If you love your kitties get them some Dr Pussums and they will love you for it!!

    - Brenda B
  • Best catnip ever!! I’d gotten my cats the small bags in the past. I ordered the new Wicked Kick-Ah nips and my cat CJ went bonkers over it! I swear I thought I heard him say “I love you” to his tie-dyed kicker.

    - Brenda Barth
  • The sacks keep them busy for a long time! Marinated mice are a favorite for a evening snack! The nickel bag is great for spreading cheer around on the cat scratchers, and trees!

    - Beth M
  • My cats LOVE the stuff. I have been a customer for many years, and I love the nightshirts, and the kitty pads!

    - Sharon felton
  • We have more cats than is reasonable or sane. Everyone has their specific likes and dislikes and the only thing they agree on is Dr. Pussums. They can smell it through the bag. 

    - Shanna O
  • This is absolutely THE BEST catnip. It’s so strong smelling – and it lasts and lasts! I have given it to friends who have cats and they all said they never saw their cat go so nuts for catnip! Now it’s the only catnip they buy too.  Plus, I love that I’m supporting a small business in Maine run by the nicest people who give back to their community.

    - Tanya D
  • Our older cat won’t touch any catnip that isn’t Dr. Pussums! She’s almost nine and has really slowed her pace, but when she gets a pillow she’s once again a crazy kitten. It’s so much fun to watch.

    - Trishea S
  • The bags last and last because there is no filler or fluff.

    - Shanna O
  • My cats love them! They can smell the nip through the box! They act like kids on Christmas morning when a box arrives!

    - Beth M
  • I’ve tried all brands of catnip toys, nothing compares to Dr. Pussums. Years ago we were on a trip to Canada and stopped at an artists co-op, they had catnip toys and we wanted to grab a few for the cats. They absolutely loved them, in fact, after 4 years they still enjoy them, periodically I spray catnip oil on them. But nothing has ever compared to Dr. Pussums, well worth the reasonable price. Highly recommended !!! Just ask my cats ❤️

    - Iris C
  • My cat is going crazy over these fun catnip filled items. I ordered the Wicked Kick-Ah and the Kick Nip. My cat is 14 years old and is acting like a kitten.

    - Audrey M
  • I highly recommend Dr. Pussums for your fur family. So much better than the ones you find in the stores.

    - Audrey Murphy
  • I still will only buy Dr. Pussum’s catnip for my kitties. I especially love that it’s not only made in America but made in Maine…my home state! I always recommend it to all my cat loving friends because it’s pure catnip – no dangerous fillers.

    - Mary Jo Hinkle
