A fun alternative to catnip! Meowy Janes Valerian Root is a perfect alternative for cats who don’t react to catnip. For cats who love catnip, it can be a fun way to switch up a regular playtime routine!Each resealable pop top bottle is stuffed with 7.5 fl oz of Valerian Root which is enough to last for over 25 play times! Just use a pinch of Valerian Root in place of catnip inside the refillable toy- your cat will love it!
Valerian Root contains two naturally occurring chemicals- actinidine and valeric acid. Valeric acid acts similarly to a cat pheromone, while actinidine is structurally similar to the nepetalactone in catnip. It causes a similar reaction!
Cats will find the stinky cheese, hint of mint, wet earth-esque scent of Valerian root irresistible. It’s smell can be a little pungent at first, but up close it smells nice! Your cat will especially think so.
Our handmade cotton refillable mouse toys with a Jute tail make it easy for your cat to enjoy their valerian root, and even more fun!
– Flip the mouse ‘head’ open, put in a few pinches of Valerian Root, then fold the ‘head’ back over- your cat won’t be able to keep their paws off!
– The refillable toys are great fun for individual play, but they make the perfect bonding playtime toy too- we love to slowly drag it along by the tail and watch as they stalk and pounce!
– The refillable mouse toys do not have to be fully stuffed- a little valerian root goes a long way!
We have tons of different mice patterns including many not pictured! Specify girl, boy, unisex for pattern options and if you have a color preference, let us know too!
***NOTE*** Not all cats react to the essential oils of each cat attractant plant in the same way. Which they prefer is based on genetics, their mood, the day, and how they like to play. Just like catnip, most cats LOVE valerian root, but there is a small percentage of cats who don’t react to it. Each product we offer does have a different appeal to different cats, and the majority like most- but just like us, they have their preferences! If you are unsure what your cat likes, the Sampler box is an awesome way to try it all and see what your cat prefers!
