Many cats react to Matatabi (the vine of the Silvervine plant) even if they show little interest to catnip - a 2017 study found that 80 percent of cats enjoyed Silvervine while 1 out of 3 did not respond to catnip. It also found that they played longer and returned after a shorter time.
- What is Matatabi? -
Matatabi is a popular catnip alternative in Asia!
Although lesser known in the United States, Matatabi is more popular in Japan and China than catnip! The plant is native to the mountains of Eastern Asia 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.
