Some herbs make cats happy, and therefore they also carry the word "cat" in their names. The effect of valerian and catnip on cats is very well known. Presumably this is due their ingredients having similar properties like cat urine.
Although not every cat responds to this plant in a similar way, some wallow in them so excessively that they all but destroy the plant. If you're planning on growing cat herbs from seed, you might want to consider pre-culture in pots and protect the young plants accordingly, so that they can grow large enough to survive these hardships.
In this category there are also plants which are suitable as indoor plants for domestic cats and which are safe for cats to eat, and some scented plants which keep cats away from certain locations in your garden, such as wormwood.
