Meet Lisa and Rich Jackson

Updated: Jul 23, 2021

Skinny Pete's Gourmet Catnip is an American company based in Rochester Hills, Michigan. We were founded in 2017. Our mission is to bring high quality, hand crafted catnip gifts to market. We also have a unique collection of cat lover related apparel for both men and women. You will not see these designs anywhere else!

So what exactly is catnip?

Catnip is an herb in the mint family. It contains a chemical, nepetalactone. It is this chemical that triggers the amazing response many cats have when they encounter catnip. It is a fun treat for cats and their owners!

What makes Skinny Pete's different?

Our catnip is 100% Organic, completely free from pesticides & herbicides and home grown right here in the USA. Each of our gift sets is carefully hand-crafted and undergoes a thorough quality inspection before it can receive the "Paw Print of Approval".

What are you currently working on? We are doing a lot with video and graphics. For Skinny Pete's Gourmet traffic, we are currently shooting some fun TV commercials that poke fun at overly "artistic" perfume commercials. We are coming out with some new 11x17 cat themed posters, too!

Anything aside from the Skinny Pete line that you are working on?

We are in pre-production for a feature length documentary on human trafficking. This film is a follow up to another film we produced/directed called "Stuck in Traffic".

What are your goals for the future? Both artistically and in life.

We hope to grow Skinny Pete's Gourmet Catnip to the point that it can support us. Since we design and create all of the products, packaging, and advertising ourselves, the company is a great way to get our creative fix too!

How about some of your favorites...

Color? Blue Pet/animal? Cats and rabbits

Season? Spring Movie? Fight Club Board game? Risk Holiday? Christmas Cup of coffee? Panera Bread

You can see more from Skinny Pete's Gourmet Catnip at Yellow Door and online.
