Does your cat love Cat Thyme?
This option to add Cat Thyme to a toy is provided for the enjoyment of cats who love the smell. Not all cats respond to the scent of Cat Thyme.
If your cat would like some freshly dried Cat Thyme (Teucrium marum) leaves added to the filling of any Catnip Confections crocheted cat toy, simply mention which toy (or toys) you want with Cat Thyme added in the "Note to Seller" section when placing your order. I am also happy to create a custom listing just for you.
Cat Thyme plants are native to Spain and other Western Mediterranean areas. Although it looks very similar to thyme, Cat Thyme is not a true thyme but is instead a type of germander. Its pungent scent has long been known to have a catnip-like effect on cats. Some cats seem to prefer it over catnip and will flatten plants if they find them. Other cats are completely unimpressed and ignore it.
Because of its strong scent, Cat Thyme is not suited to be a stand alone filling and needs to be mixed with something else when stuffed into toys. In Catnip Confections crocheted toys it can be mixed with organic cotton fluff or alpaca fluff for a single scent experience, or with another cat herb or combination of cat herbs as an enticing accent.
Not sure if your cat likes Cat Thyme?
The Catnip Confections Cat Thyme Survey is an ongoing survey that is attempting to estimate how many cats enjoy the scent of Cat Thyme. So far, 30% to 40% of the cats who completed the survey reported a catnip-like reaction to the scent of Cat Thyme. Of those who reacted, about half had a strong attraction to and fascination with the scent. In comparison, about 70% of domestic cats respond to Catnip.
If your cat would like to sample a sprig of freshly dried Cat Thyme and be a part of the Catnip Confections Cat Thyme Survey, please send me a message with your US mailing address requesting to participate (no purchase necessary). If you have more than one cat who would like to try Cat Thyme, don't forget to mention the number of cats who will be giving their opinions so I can mail a sprig for each. There is no charge, but in exchange you will be asked to complete a short survey about your cat's reactions to the Cat Thyme.
Please request the Cat Thyme only if you intend to complete the survey. Thanks!

I wasn't sure if my cat would to respond to this, but she did! I would definitely recommend trying it to see if your cat likes it. The shipping was right on time and everything was perfectly packaged.
