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

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

    - Beth Moore
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • The bags last and last because there is no filler or fluff.

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

    - Sharon felton
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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.
