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.
PLEASE NOTE: Cat teeth are NOT designed to chew on any kind of wood stick, including honeysuckle sticks. Most cats do not deliberately bite down or chew on honeysuckle, but if they do they should be gently discouraged. Bare wood toys are best avoided if your cat is a known wood-gnawer.

One of my kitties is interested in this cute stick, the other not so much, so far. I love the little leaves on it, so cute! Nicely sanded, no rough edges.

Although it did say at the very bottom of the description that it’s not safe for cats to chew on, It wasn’t obvious to me that it might not be good for kittens. I’m sure this item is wonderful and well made. Maybe I can use it when my pets get a little older. The shop owner was kind in getting back to me with suggestions and the offer to return it.
