Gremlin Protects His “Stash”!
As an example from our own experience, Gremlin normally is not at all aggressive toward our other two kitties, Petunia and That One (yes, that’s really her name!). But, although you don’t see it in this video, he became protective if they approached him while he had his catnip!

The Word On Catnip
Here’s what Wikipedia has to say about how catnip affects kitties:
The common behaviors when cats sense the bruised leaves or stems of catnip are rubbing on the plant, rolling on the ground, pawing at it, licking it, and chewing it. Consuming much of the plant is followed by drooling, sleepiness, anxiety, leaping about and purring. Some will growl, meow, scratch, or bite the hand holding it. Some cats will eat dried catnip; often eating too much can cause cats to be aggressive, typically making them hiss.
