These plump acorns are perfect for frolicking as they roll and bounce across the floor, or dangle from a cat tree!
Catnip Confections Acorns come stuffed with nothing but your choice of freshly dried whole Catnip leaves, Honeysuckle wood shavings, or whole Silvervine leaves. They are sold individually and in sets of 3. If your cat craves variety, choose a Mixed Set that includes one of each flavor!
Each hand-crocheted acorn is approximately the size of a fat mouse (1.5 inches in diameter and 2 inches long, plus a half inch stem). The acorn body is crocheted using undyed Foxfibre Colorganic cotton yarn. The yarn is spun from organically grown cotton varieties that naturally produce colored fibers so no dyes are needed to create the naturalistic acorn colors. The acorn cap is crocheted with undyed wool yarn spun from the fleece of dark brown sheep raised on a biodynamic farm.
Catnip Acorns contain 100% freshly-dried, whole-leaf catnip (Nepeta cataria) that is grown with the simple power of sunshine, water and compost. It has a distinctive cat-nippy aroma so Catnip connoisseurs are sure to be impressed!
Honeysuckle Acorns are fully stuffed with freshly shaved honeysuckle wood. Honeysuckle (Lonicera tatarica) contains a compound similar to the active ingredient in catnip. Some cats that don't respond to catnip will respond to honeysuckle. A few cats that respond to catnip may not be impressed by honeysuckle, but many lucky cats love both!
Silvervine Acorns are filled with freshly-dried whole silvervine leaves. Silver vine (Actinidia polygama), also called Japanese Catnip or Matatabi, contains two cat attracting compounds not found in catnip. Studies have shown that up to 80% of cats, even those with oriental ancestry that don't respond to catnip, will respond to silvervine. Cats that love catnip may not always appreciate the subtle attractions of silvervine, but many enjoy its novel fragrance.
Single Acorns come wrapped in tissue made from recycled paper before being tied with a leaf shaped tag. Sets of 3 Acorns are packed in a handcrafted acorn shaped box topped with a leaf shaped tag. All acorns include a brief information sheet describing the filling(s).
As with all Catnip Confection toys, these acorns are stuffed right before shipping for maximum freshness, sure to please even the squirreliest of cats!

Wonderfully made, very sturdy. While my cats didn't show a catnip-like response to the honeysuckle, they love batting it around all the same. Very nicely packaged. Would definitely recommend!

I have bought these cat nip acorns a few times for my cats and as gifts for other cat friends. They are made from high quality materials and come beautifully packaged. The seller is very kind. In the gift I sent recently, she included a note I had requested. The receiver of the gift absolutely loved it and their cat "Bubs" went crazy for the toys.
