  1. 240 ml warm water
  2. 3 tbsp dried catnip
  3. ¼ tsp instant chicken broth, powdered


  1. Pour warm water into a large bottle.
  2. Add the catnip and chicken broth to the bottle.
  3. Securely tighten the cap on the bottle to prevent any leakage.
  4. Shake the bottle vigorously, making sure to mix the ingredients well. Continue shaking until the powdered broth has fully dissolved and the water has a green tint from the catnip.
  5. Once the soup is well-mixed, store it in the refrigerator to keep it fresh.
  6. When it's time to serve the soup, gently warm it to a suitable temperature. You can use a microwave or heat it on the stovetop, but make sure it's not too hot.
  7. Measure out only ¼ cup of the soup for each serving. Use a measuring cup to ensure accurate portion sizes.
  8. Serve the warmed soup to your cat, either in a bowl or a cat-friendly dish.
  9. Monitor your cat's intake and adjust the serving size according to their appetite and dietary needs.
  10. Store any remaining soup in the refrigerator, tightly sealed, for future servings.
  11. When ready to serve, thaw the desired amount of soup and gently heat it before serving it to your cat. Always ensure the soup is at an appropriate temperature before offering it to your feline companion.


It's important to use dried catnip specifically meant for cats, as some varieties of catnip intended for human consumption may not have the same effect on felines.
Ensure that the instant chicken broth powder does not contain any harmful additives or ingredients that may be toxic to cats. Check the label and choose a brand that is safe for feline consumption.
When warming the soup, make sure it is just slightly warm and not too hot. Cats have sensitive tongues and can easily burn themselves on hot liquids.
Always monitor your cat's intake and adjust the serving size according to their individual needs and preferences.
If you're introducing the soup to your cat for the first time, it's recommended to observe them for any signs of allergies or digestive discomfort. If any adverse reactions occur, discontinue serving the soup and consult your veterinarian.
Properly store any leftover soup in the refrigerator, tightly sealed, and use it within a few days to maintain its freshness and quality.
