In cats, inhaled nepetalactone (a component found in the Catnip plant) stimulates the olfactory bulb, the part of the brain that processes odours. Nepetalactone stimulates a sexual response in cats that are genetically predisposed to sensitivity to catnip. (About 20 to 30 percent of cats don't seem to react to the plant). The Catnip plant is also thought to repel mosquitoes, ticks and mites.
