Big Rock Catnip Mountain

The Big Rock Catnip Mountain

Really, it’s a cliff that’s covered with catnip. Bring your kitties close for a good sniff.

Catnip is a native wildflower in most of the United States—try stopping any mint from growing wherever it pleases—and for some reason it outgrows everything else on this rocky hillside. I guess the local cats are accustomed to it, or they just take on what’s growing at the top.

In order to understand the title, you have to know an old traditional song called “The Big Rock Candy Mountain”. If you don’t, don’t worry!


From health and welfare to rescue and adoption stories, advocacy and art, factual articles and fictional stories, "The Creative Cat" offers both visual and verbal education and entertainment about cats for people who love cats, pets and animals of all species.
