Big cats + catnip = this cute video

Big Cat Rescue video
Cute is normally not my thing (or at least I don’t post a lot of cute), but for once I thought I had to pass on a video that definitely belongs under the “Cute Overload” category.

Finally we get the answer to the age-old question: what happens when you give catnip to tigers, leopards, and other big cats? (The answer is of course just as cute as any kitten, but you’re going to want to stand back a bit further.)

Check out the video below from Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, Florida, which is a non-breeding sanctuary for over 100 varieties of felines — both big and small.
