ENRICHMENT

Matatabi has a similar effect on cats as catnip, but it is even more dynamic and a higher percentage of the cat population is attracted.

Most cat owners have tried using catnip and we all like to see cats rolling around in elation.

Cats love catnip, but about 50% of cats only react to catnip Well what about the 50% that seem to pay no attention to catnip

Well now there's Matatabi.. or if you just want to give your cat a different awesome treat.

 Matatabi is a plant that grows in the mountainous areas of Japan and has the scientific name Actinidia polygama. Matatabi has two ingredients that get cats excited; actinidine and dihydroactinidiolide. The leaves are also used to make tea for humans.

A study published in the BioMed Central Veterinary Research (source) comparing the effects of Matatabi, Tatarian honeysuckle, valerian, and catnip on 100 domestic cats.

Almost 80% of the cats responded to Matatabi. This was the largest reaction to any of the stimulants used, showing that Matatabi has some genuine effects.
