Local Growing Operation Leaves Man's New Best Friend Meowing For More

Juggling computer parts by day and seedlings by night, one Kansas resident has grown a business of exotic herbs for cats. What started as an experiment to grow plants without soil led to a search for what makes cats crazy.

PRLog - Feb. 3, 2010 - WICHITA, Kan. -- PR Log (Press Release) – Feb 03, 2010 – Brian's search began when some random googling led to an article on hydroponics. This technique of farming without dirt fills the salad bar at Disney's Epcot Center and will eventually feed astronauts on the way to Mars. Brian's cat Tages was in for a treat when Catnip was selected to be tried first. It grew so well he had more than enough to keep his co-worker's cats occupied.

Brian was curious about what made his cat want the nip and took his search to Wikipedia the public encyclopedia. It turned out Catnip acts on the same receptors in a cat's nose as do pheromones from other cats. These pheromones carry on conversations of cat talk that go beyond a simple hiss or meow. By growing exotic plant types containing these various substances Brian has created a mix he calls Meowie Wowie.

"I give it to my friends and their cats just love it," says Brian. At the end of last year he took the operation online to sell the surplus and offset cost of running the lights. Brian figures people will pounce at the chance to give their feline friend a unique experience. A trip to http://www.nepetacat.com reveals the complete selection.

Brian's basement is filled with the kind of growing operation that at first glance would be a red flag to the authorities. Banks of high intensity lights hang from the ceiling casting a bright glow onto the plants below. Laughing at the comparison Brian remarked, "I didn't  want to keep the neighbors awake so I covered up the basement windows."
