Default How to remove cat nip off Cat Condo

Hi



I have four feral 4 month old kittens living in my back yard. I trapped
them and then took them to the human society / spca last week and got the
tested, shots and fixed. The have been released and are doing great.



Someone donated a cat condo to me, and it seems like the previous owner
might have rubbed or put catnip on the top.



Once in a while a kitten will jump to the top and rub its face into the top
of the cat condo and then start freaking out a bit. When this happens the
freaked out kitten will go up to another kitten and kinda start attacking
it, not sure if they are playing out what.



Is there any way to get the catnip off? Take a damp towel and wipe it down,
or take a vacuum attachment to it?



Thanks

They love it. They are playing! Leave it alone.

Rub a little more catnip, but on different spots. Then they will have
different locations to go to. Otherwise leave it alone, something they
are enjoying is not a problem.

Everyone already said it perfectly. The thing is you mentioned 2
fundamental things:

1. Feral

Even non-feral cats have a pecking order, feral cats I would assume
adhere to it much more strictly especially when they have grown up
together.

2. Catnip

Cats adore catnip assuming:

1. They are old enough to be affected by it.
2. They are affected by it at all.

Is there any way to get the catnip off? Take a damp towel and
wipe it down, or take a vacuum attachment to it?


I really wouldn't worry about this too much. However, I would like
to tell you this -- something to keep in mind. Kittens are a
handful. We have only had our Gabby for almost 2 months or so now I
guess and it has been an interesting time for all. There are times
we have wanted to boot him out the door then he does something that
melts our hearts.

So basically... unless you see an ear come flying off I really
wouldn't worry about their play. Although you should be aware of
their sounds. Low guttural sounds or long drawn out low mewing and
loud sharp short yowls are NOT good. The play MAY be getting too
rough. Just be there to help if things get RIDICULOUSLY out of hand
-- otherwise remember, a little domination is key to a structure.

$0.02 from a new cat's slave's perspective.
