What is Matatabi?

The plant is native to the mountains Japan and China and grows like an ivy on trees and rocks. It is officially named Actinidia Polygama, but is commonly called Silver Vine for the distinctive color of its leaves.

Many cats react to Matatabi (the vine of the Silvervine plant) even if they show little interest to catnip. A 2017 scientific study found 70% of cats had a reaction to catnip, however over 80% of cats had a reaction to silvervine, with many cats enjoying both!

While Matatabi/ Silvervine is slowly becoming more well known here in the United States, and is more popular in East Asia than traditional catnip!

***NOTE*** Not all cats react to the essential oils of each plant in the same way. Which they prefer is based on genetics, their mood, the day, and how they like to play. If you are unsure what your cat likes, our variety box is an awesome way to try it all and see what your cat prefers!

Fast shipping but my cats do not love these like they do catnip. No fault of the seller.

My cat loves these things! The veterinarian I work for recommends Matatabi stick for feline dental care and I decided to give it a shot. They freaked out!
