Default Opposite of catnip?

Is there anything that is essentially the opposite of catnip?

My recently adopted (about a month ago) 15 week old kitten has for the
past two weeks been acting like she's high on catnip about half the
time now. I'm certain she isn't, because she's an indoor cat (whether
she likes it or not) and the catnip is sealed in an airtight container.

There are other things that may cause your cat to act that way.
Clorine bleach smells do it for my cat. He literally attacks my bath
towels. He also goes crazy for my dirty clothes sometimes. He loves
me, what can I say?

In this case, age is the best antidote: she'll outgrow it. Kittens,
like most children, are somewhat hyperactive at certain ages.

Don't know about an 'anti' catnip, but I am curious about your B5 quote....
Is it in reference to 'Bester'? The lovely cheif of the psy-cops?

It is alleged that Ted Davis claimed:

Yeah, I know. But meanwhile, I would like to be able to get her to
just chill out sometimes.

It is alleged that kaeli claimed:

;
; How so?

For no apparent reason, she'll just go wild. Running around the condo,
trying to climb me or just running up to me and giving my leg a "claw
hug" and then running away, attacking the bottom step, etc. All with a
wild look (eyes wide, pupils dilated, ears pulled up and back). And
usually when I'm either trying to work or I'm too achy or tired to play
with her.

This then also results in her not being in the mood to play when I'm
available to play with her.

I'm not a stranger to cats, but the last kitten I had was when I was a
child, some 25~30 years ago.

Nope. B5's own terror bomber Robert Carlson. Season three, episode
two. http://www.midwinter.com/lurk/guide/046.html
