For confirmed honeysuckle fans, this toy is more fun than you can shake a stick at!
Honeysuckle wood (Lonicera tatarica) contains actinidine, a compound similar to the active ingredient in catnip. Some cats that don't respond to catnip will respond to honeysuckle. A few that respond to catnip may not be impressed by honeysuckle, but many lucky cats enjoy both! If your kitty loves honeysuckle, he or she will want to lick, kick, rub, roll or even drool on this stick.
Catnip Confections Honeysuckle Sticks are approximately 5 to 6 inches long and 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch thick. The wood has been specially cut to reveal more of the extra-fragrant honeysuckle heartwood, and the surface has been smoothed to prevent slivers.
Every honeysuckle stick has two leaves that make convenient handles for paws and claws. The leaves are hand crocheted from green Foxfibre Colorganic cotton yarn. The yarn is spun from organically grown cotton that naturally produces green fibers so dyes are not necessary.
Wetting honeysuckle with water will further enhance its enticing aroma and the scent of the wood can be periodically refreshed with a light sanding to give your cat many years of honeysuckle bliss.
Honeysuckle sticks are sold individually and each one ships in a re-closeable triangular box wrapped with an informative sleeve summarizing the use and care of honeysuckle wood.
Every stick is unique and many are irregular - they are natural honeysuckle wood!
If you are looking for something a little smaller, try a Honeysuckle Twig, which is about half the size of a stick.

The product showed up in time, in adorable packaging with kitty cutouts but my picky kitten wasn’t interested in the stick unfortunately!

Instant hit!! Love this! Backstory; My ragdoll Pixel doesn't have much in the way of a catnip response, but variations hold her interest. She's fond of silvervine sticks and mint scented toys. She also has an unusual obsession with a piece of wood that was originally a foot roller... On to the good stuff!! As soon as I opened the little white box, her nose was going! She rubbed her cheeks all over it, and started chewing on it. I have just spent the last forty minutes playing with her with this stick! This is a sturdy little stick. No bite marks on it yet, so it should live quite a while. There's even little crochet leaves that give Pixel something to grab that she doesn't have with the foot roller. I will definitely be purchasing more!
