My 12 year old cat discoverd valerian root the other day, after OH bought some valerian root herbal tea to help he get to sleep. The cat kept trying to lick the cup, so we poured out some into a saucer. The cat rolled her neck fur and ears in the saucer, then rolled about on the floor, eyes as black as coal. Very unlike her. She is normally very sedate and dignified. Hilarious to watch.
Googled and found that although it is a sedative for humans, valerian root is a stimulant for cats, just like catmint.
