Catnip for pain relief

Caitlin from Northland

Hi all, a friend of mine has a beloved cat that is on “cage arrest” for the next month due to surgery not being possible to fix a fractured leg. While they were at the vet they noticed her cage was stuffed full with catnip and when questioned the reply was that it was a great natural pain relief.
This cat is a trooper but we can all see she is still struggling from time to time so I’m writing in hope someone may be growing catnip or even have a few seeds that we can plant ourselves.
I personally would be more than happy to provide finance for anything that could be given but of course donations will be welcomed with open arms.

Cheers, Caitlin.
