We source these fun cat toys and snacks from Meowy Janes!
An all natural cat toy containing two naturally occurring cat attractive oils!
Silvervine is a great way to promote play and relieve stress and anxiety in your cat. Give them dried fruit and watch them play! Many cats will play independently, batting the fruit around, however you can also encourage play by tossing and batting around with them!
What does it do and how does it work?
Typical behaviors of cats on silvervine include rolling, chin and cheek rubbing, meowing, drooling and licking. Some cats will become kitten-like playing with toys and catching a case of the zoomies. Others will be more relaxed and will chill out in a dreamlike state.
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!
Only the gall fruit contains sufficient amounts of the olfactory attractants to trigger the euphoric reaction in cats. The other dried fruits from the plant (a more oblong shape) have shown to have much less of a reaction.
What’s in the bag?
Each bag contains approximately 15 whole dried fruits weighing ~1 oz in total. It is safe for cats to consume bits of the fruit but they should be used as a supervised playtime toy only. When not being enjoyed, store in a sealed bag to maintain the freshness. Each fruit can be played with many times until it eventually disappears under the couch, bed, or other furniture!
Please note that not all cats will respond enthusiastically to silvervine.
