Explaining How Cats Get High, and Other Cat-Related Chemistry Lessons

Like, meow, man.

Why do so many cats completely lose their marbles when they’re introduced to catnip? Why does cat urine smell like the worst thing ever in the world, except when it’s in kitty litter? And why are they always rubbing their faces up against stuff? Youtube’s Reactions: Everyday Chemistry wants you to know that the answer to all of these questions is “chemicals, duh.” Dang, I had my heart set on “cat magic,” but that makes more sense.
