Honey, the Cat's Dipped the Nip Again ( Catnip Tea )

"I intend to spoil my cats for as long as they’ll let me. You can substitute chicken broth or chicken soup for the bouillon and water if you choose. Just to clarify... THIS IS FOR CATS."

    This was a winner with the kitties. <br/>I just used water, so this is a great way to get them to drink more liquids.

    My cats went crazy over the smell but seemed much more interested in playing in their tea then drinking it. They kept dipping their paws in the tea and then slinging it all over the kitchen. They licked up quite a bit of tea from the floor after slinging it there and my cat Smokey enjoyed rolling on the damp floor.

    I have 3 cats, and only 1 was crazy with it. One smell it, and went away. The other one licked it, but was not crazy with it. Thanks for posting this recipe Sandi :) Made for all you can cook buffet

    My kitties enjoyed this tea, but it is very,very messy!!! I will only make this for them on a day that we can go into the 3 season porch. Thank you for posting! Made for Comfort Cafe.

    This was a no go for my gizmo. I`m not sure if instant broth (high salt)is the best. I will make again with real chicken broth next time I cook up a chicken.
