  • 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!

we are going to introduce two new kittens to our household and we have a resident senior cat whom we adore and wish to placate as he adjusts to the new roommates. the foster Mom suggested silverine, and I wanted to try some. while the product was nicely packed and shipped quickly, Gus was unmoved by the product.

I have two cats, one special needs almost blind kitty, and one very lovey-dovey very vocal kitty. The special needs kitty has not warmed up to these yet, but she usually needs extra time with new things. But my talkative kitty just loves them! I scraped off some bark as instructed, and she gnawed, tossed, chased and altogether enjoyed them.

It arrived in perfect condition and just as I expected. It is for my kitten who is 4 months and 3 weeks old. Today he thinks they’re great sticks to bat around, but he doesn’t realize they are special. I’ll have to wait until he’s a little bit older and try again. I’m sure he will eventually love these.
