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. KC

    Got these to try and give my cat something better to chew on than our cords. Not sure if it’s curbed the problem as we just got them, but both cats LOVE them! They both went nuts as soon as I gave them each one. My cat immediately started rubbing his face all over it and my roommates cat bit my finger on accident in her excitement lol.

    It definitely made them rowdy and hyper, but mostly fixated on the stick. They seemed to enjoy it at least so far so we’ll see!

  2. Kat

    My cat is such an energetic guy. So these are great for keeping him busy. He lays in one spot and rolls around enjoying his vines. He absolutely loves them! 100% satisfied catstumer.

  3. Paula

    My cat loves them! And having a resealable package is a bonus

  4. kristine

    This product is awesome my cats go crazy for it!

  5. oceans

    I really had my hopes up for a special treat and dental health. Notta…nothing no interest in chewing or even licking. My Ragdoll batted the stick around a little.

    CATS ARE NOT ALL ALIKE, MY CAT LOVED IT AT FIRST, THEN/NOW HAS LITTLE OR NO INTEREST. MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR HAS TWO CATS, MALE AND FEMALE, AND THEY SEEM TO STILL LOVE IT. GIVE IT A TRY, IT’S NOT EXPENSIVE, AND IF YOUR CAT DOES NOT KEEP ON LIKING IT, THEN YOU HAVE SOME HOLIDAY PRESENTS FOR YOUR FRIENDS CATS. IN MY SMALL WORLD OF CATS, 2 OUT OF 3 CATS LOVE THEM.

  7. Tillie

    2 of my 3 cats enjoy them

  8. Amz. Customer

    Kind of expensive, but she does like them a lot. I purchased them because she keeps biting off twigs from our decorative plants. I wish there were more in a pack because they keep disappearing under appliances and what not. She likes to knock them under furniture and retrieve them, but obviously she can’t always get to them, so we run out quickly.

    Cat loves these

  10. Amz Customer

    My cats go crazy for these things. 4 out of 5 cats love them (the 5th is just too dignified to play with ANY toys)
