Catnip toy question

joyce58December 6, 2011

I do craft shows and now have quite a few small ( good quality) catnip toys left over from my last show...Since I only do holiday shows, can I keep these toys (in an air tight bag) until my next group of shows...This may be next October...Will the catnip loose its potency in which case I will just give away to everyone I know who has a cat!

I don't know about potency, but you cold always donate/gift them to a shelter or rescue group. I volunteer at a nearby no-kill shelter, and we could always use more toys for the cats there. :-)

I think the potency would be okay. I have this plastic container of catnip that must be about 10 years old by now. My cats still open the cabinet door and dig that thing out and play with it. One of them recently dragged it around for three minutes trying to get it open - captured on video.
