An alternative to catnip that combines play and dental health!

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 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!

What’s in the bag?

  • Dried, unprocessed and untreated vine segments
  • The resealable bag is stuffed with 7-9 Matatabi sticks (depending on individual vine segment thickness)
  • Each Stick is around 5 inches long, the perfect size and length for play
  • Safe for cats to tear apart during play

***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!

  1. lwhite

    The cats went crazy for these!!

  2. Jacob

    Great product! The cats love them. The sticks are thick enough for them to really gnaw on and knock off plaque. The resealable packaging is just big enough for the uniform sticks.

  3. Amz. Customer

    Thought that these would be fun to try out per a friend’s recommendation.

    I have three cats, one likes to chew on the sticks (a) and the other two like to bat them around like a toy (b and c).

    Reaction-wise, cat (a) is not really affected and shows minimal interest, but cat (b) becomes more wired and cat (c) starts rubbing everywhere and rolling around.

    The sticks are very durable and the packaging is cute too.

  4. Alyssa

    My cats love these sticks. They do not chew them as I intended them to do for their dental health, but they love to roll around on them and smell them. If nothing else, it has an entertainment value.

  5. Lisa

    Cat sniffed it but did not give in

  6. Ragnarok

    My 4 month old kittens love playing with this stick. I throw it when they’re chewing wires so they attack it instead.

    Cons: Little pieces of bark come off and they eat them and I’m not sure if it bothers their stomach. It also gets lost easily so you might want to pick it off the floor and put it away when they stop playing with it

  7. Deb

    My cats love these things and delivery was fast.

  8. BlueSkyDay

    My female cat loves these and gets very excited when I give one to her. She likes to nibble at it and roll on it and pick it up with her paws.
    My male cat squints his eyes closed in disgust when I offer him one. He also hates catnip so this was not a good alternative for him. Apart from my cats having differing opinions on this product, it came packaged well and with full explanation as to what it is. I do make sure to wash my hands well after handling it. I once did not do so and I touched my eye area and my eye hurt for hours!

  9. Tommy Y

    My cat sniffed it and walked away. That’s all.

  10. Andrea

    My cats really like the smell of these, but they will not chew them. They bat them around and play with them, but that is the extent of it..
