  • Handmade
  • Materials: Matatabi

A great alternative to catnip that also helps maintain healthy teeth! Packed into our Matatabi Sticks are natural essential oils that drive cats wild.

Gently rub off some bark of the stick to release the scents from the natural oils- then give to your cat to enjoy. They will play, roll, rub, and have a blast!


==What's in the bag?==
+ The resealable bag is stuffed with 7-9 Matatabi sticks (depending on individual vine segment thickness).
+ All sticks are dried, unprocessed, and untreated vine segments.
+ Each stick is around 5 inches long and safe for cats to tear bits off during play.



==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 it 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!

110% would recommend this shop! I cannot believe how quickly this shipped. I was legitimately confused why I had a package! Oh, and the kitty sticker inside was so much fun! The product is top notch! Catnip doesn’t work on my black cat Wednesday, but she is OBSESSED with these sticks! She was a stray/feral cat, so she is SUPER picky about what she plays with. If you have a choosey kitty that also loves to chew your pencils, this product is definitely more than worth it!

Any pet owner knows even if a product is amazing your animal might think its boring. This product is NOT the case. BOTH of my cats loved this so much. My husband took it from them cause he thought "it looked like something the cats shouldn't be playing with" cause it just is a stick. But heck, they love it! When we run out I will definitely order more.
