Now catnip is better known on the western side of the great ditch as catmint and is a downy labiate plant, Nepeta cataria, with purple-spotted white flowers and a mintlike smell attractive to cats. Well this jolly Wenrich two step of the same name will certainly intoxicate all ragtime cats. A short piece in a rondo AABBACCA form, it has hypnotic qualities demanding constant repetition. Yes Sir! The title Catnip
is well chosen!
