There are some cats who aren’t affected by catnip. They’re just not interested. How to make them happy? Matatabi, or Silvervine, might just be the way forward.
Its scientific name is Actinindia Polygama, it is a deciduous climbing plant that grows well in the mountainous areas of Japan & China.
It's the most popular cat treat in Asia.
The effects usually last 5-30 minutes and cats have been observed in returning to Matatabi/Silvervine within 20 minutes. The product appears to invoke a more intense euphoric response in cats than regular catnip.
