Default Catnip

Quick question!
I ordered some new Acana cat food online, and they gave me a gift with it.
A catnip ball.
It’s as big as a golf ball, if not smaller. It’s 100% catnip, so now I was wondering, can I put it Igor’s cage? Will it interest him? Is it poisonous to him?

As far as I can tell, catnip toys are safe for hedgehogs. Coco has a couple toys that have catnip in them, and she's never reacted overly-hyper to them like my cat does whenever he ventures into the room to rob them. So I dont think it makes them 'high' like it does for cats, but it's not poisonous to them either.

Ok, thank you very much. I’ll put it in cage and see what happens!

I have heard that catnip can overwhelm hedgehogs if it is too strong and irritate their respiratory systems, but is he does not eat the catnip, he should be fine. I hope he has fun playing with it!
