Cat­nip Help­ing Cats

The high you can feel good about: in­dulge in the ‘nip that helps cats in need

Modern Cat - - The Scoop -

While your cat en­joys the high from Colorado Kitty Pot’s or­ganic cat­nip, you can feel great, too—one hun­dred per­cent of the prof­its from your pur­chase helps pets and ser­vice an­i­mals in need.

Colorado Kitty Pot was cre­ated to sup­port Harley's Hope Foun­da­tion, a non­profit ded­i­cated to keep­ing low-in­come peo­ple with their pets. The foun­da­tion’s laud­able goal is to pre­vent pets from be­ing sur­ren­dered or fall­ing vic­tim to eu­thana­sia due to a lack of money for treat­able con­di­tions and be­hav­iours.

David and Cyn­thia Bul­lock started Harley's Hope Foun­da­tion in 2010. Need­ing a way to raise funds for their char­ity, the cou­ple grew cat­nip on their Colorado prop­erty and oc­ca­sion­ally sold small bags of the herb at spe­cial char­i­ta­ble events.

“I was ready to let the plants go to seed. Then mar­i­juana was le­gal­ized here in Colorado so we jumped on the pot band­wagon and the name Colorado Kitty Pot!” says Cyn­thia. Within a few months, a na­tional chain was sell­ing their prod­uct; the Bul­lock’s now pur­chase cat­nip from an or­ganic farm in Wash­ing­ton State to meet the de­mand.

“We now have a full line of cat­nip toys called Kitty Pot munchies that looks like hu­man food but is clearly la­belled ‘not for hu­man con­sump­tion,’ says Cyn­thia, laugh­ing. The cou­ple’s foun­da­tion also of­fers a lim­ited, free sup­ply of cat­nip to ap­proved in­di­vid­u­als strug­gling with cats in need of vet­eri­nary care or be­havioural train­ing.
