15 Crazy Cats Who Hit The Catnip A Little (Okay, Way) Too Hard

Cats love catnip, which is notorious for making cats excited and "stoned," much to the delight of Redditors who posted hilarious pictures.

I’ve always been a cat person, and I love my two kitties more than anything in the world.

They treat me like I’m the queen of their world, so why wouldn’t I do everything humanly possible to make them happy? That includes, on occasion, giving them catnip. If you don’t know about catnip, it’s basically a (totally safe and vet-approved) substance for cats that makes them act kind of crazy. For some cats, that means laying around “stoned,” and for others that means running around like a maniac. Regardless of which kind your cat is, the pictures of kitties getting into their catnip stashes are totally hilarious. Here are 15 of them that will make you laugh out loud.

1. This cat was caught red-handed, but she’s never gonna stop hitting the catnip.

2. “Who are you? Where am I? What the catnip is going on here?”

3. I can’t get over his face.
