It’s not flashy or expensive, but a very humble and completely natural offering which has cats literally drooling over it. But what is it? It’s a simple but very fragrant piece of wood. Not any old wood, but wood from the Tatarian honeysuckle shrub. When cats smell the aroma, they can't help but lick it, drool on it, hug it, rub it on their chins and cheeks; roll with it and rabbit-kick it with their back legs. These are all behaviours seen by cats that enjoy catnip. However, whether a cat likes catnip or not is something that is genetically determined, which is why one in three don’t respond to it. This makes Tatarian honeysuckle wood a great alternative. Anxious cats in particular may find their stress levels reduced by some uninhibited play with Tatarian honeysuckle wood. It might even help in specific situations such as taking your cat to the vet and providing enrichment for shelter cats. Tatarian honeysuckle wood makes a wonderful natural toy for cats and the great thing about it is that it can be enhanced and refreshed. For those cats that like a stronger scent wetting the wood will intensify its fragrance and sanding it to remove the top layer of sawdust when it starts to look a bit jaded will bring it back to life! Despite tens of thousands of pieces of the wood having been sold as cat toys in Canada, it's never made it's way to the UK, until now. www.honeysucklecattoys.co.uk is the only place in the UK where you can buy this unique cat toy. Why not see how your cat responds?
