In Japan, there is an age-old saying that goes: “Neko ni matatabi, jorō ni koban” which translates to: “Silvervine to a cat, a coin to a prostitute”. This popular Japanese saying means to put someone in a good mood by providing that which they most desire.
The rare Silvervine powder has got to be (paws down) the most powerful cat herb of all.
Silvervine is also known as Matatabi or Japanese Catnip and is the prefered treat for cats in Asia. MUCA’s Silvervine is wild grown and harvested seasonally from the mountainous regions of Japan. The Silvervine plant contains not one, but two cat attractant compounds. The choice parts of the Silvervine plant’s leaves and fruit is used to create this extra fine, highly concentrated powder. Silvervine’s effects are much like Catnip but tend to be stronger, longer lasting and more appealing to all feline personalities. This also makes Silvervine Powder the ideal choice for cats who are bonkers about their herbs and for owners who have more than one cat to consider. The delicate consistency of the powder is easy to rub into objects and surfaces.
Silvervine Effects: A little goes a long way. Silvervine’s effects will vary from cat to cat. Results will vary from drooling, purring, licking, eating or rolling in the powder, frolicking around and chasing invisible prey. The gaga effect that Silvervine has on cats is known in Asia as the Matatabi dance. Cats make Silvervine powder look so fun, you’d want to try it yourself.
