Is there anything that is essentially the opposite of catnip?

My recently adopted (about a month ago) 15 week old kitten has for the past two weeks been acting like she's high on catnip about half the time now. I'm certain she isn't, because she's an indoor cat (whether she likes it or not) and the catnip is sealed in an airtight container.

There are other things that may cause your cat to act that way. Clorine bleach smells do it for my cat. He literally attacks my bath towels. He also goes crazy for my dirty clothes sometimes. He loves me, what can I say?

In this case, age is the best antidote: she'll outgrow it. Kittens, like most children, are somewhat hyperactive at certain ages.

How so?
It's pretty normal for them to be very active at that age.

Oh, yeah, after I clean the bathroom (with a product that contains bleach), Rowan goes apeshit for my hands. I have to wash them really good or she gets all crazy and nibbles too hard.
Funny, though, she's the only one who is affected by it. The other two don't seem to notice.

Never mess up an apology with an excuse.

Don't know about an 'anti' catnip, but I am curious about your B5 quote.. Is it in reference to 'Bester'? The lovely cheif of the psy-cops?

Yeah, I know. But meanwhile, I would like to be able to get her to just chill out sometimes.

For no apparent reason, she'll just go wild. Running around the condo, trying to climb me or just running up to me and giving my leg a "claw hug" and then running away, attacking the bottom step, etc. All with a wild look (eyes wide, pupils dilated, ears pulled up and back). And usually when I'm either trying to work or I'm too achy or tired to play with her.
This then also results in her not being in the mood to play when I'm available to play with her.
I'm not a stranger to cats, but the last kitten I had was when I was a child, some 25~30 years ago.
