Catnip, Honeysuckle or Silvervine Acorn, Crocheted Cat Toy

$8.00




These plump acorns are perfect for a little fall 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 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!

Payments

Payment can be made online by credit card, debit card, Etsy gift card or PayPal, through the Etsy mobile app with Apple Pay or Android Pay, or by mail with a USPS Money Order. For help with making your payment, please visit the Etsy help guide at http://www.etsy.com/help/article/339

As a gift to California customers, I pay California sales tax to the state on any orders shipped to California addresses. I do this to encourage local California kitties to enjoy more Catnip Confections. This means that you do not have to worry about reporting or paying California sales tax on Catnip Confections.

Etsy automatically collects and remits sales tax in states where it is required (Connecticut, District of Columbia, Idaho, Iowa, Oklahoma, Minnesota, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota and Washington State). Except for orders shipped to those states, sales tax is not collected on orders shipped outside of California (but, depending on your local laws, you may still owe it).

*** International orders shipping outside of the United States will owe any applicable customs duty fees and taxes at delivery. ***

For Canada and the United Kingdom:

Delivery time for International First Class Mail is approximately 2 weeks but can vary widely because delivery may be delayed by inspections when entering your country. Customs forms will report your package as containing "cat toys" categorized as merchandise (not a gift), with item values listed.

*** Any applicable customs duty fees or taxes will be collected by the delivery agent in your country (Canada Post or Royal Mail) at delivery. ***

If your order is a gift being sent directly to the gift recipient, please select the option during checkout that indicates your order is a gift. The order value will still be listed as required on the customs form, but import fees and/or taxes may be lower or waived (depending on the laws in your country).

Additional

CatnipConfections are made to be played with by cats, but they are not indestructible. Always examine your cat's toys and replace any that show signs of wear. Do not leave your cat unattended with toys, especially when he or she is under the influence of catnip!

I am happy to customize any confection for you. If you prefer, items can be stuffed with organic cotton or alpaca fluff instead of catnip, honeysuckle, silvervine or valerian.

At this point, our cat (and our family) love these acorns so much we are buying them as gifts for friends with fur babies. Great quality.


Oh my word, this was shipped Really fast. As usual, my 4 special needs cats love these toys. They are really good quality. They can take a beating and not even fray, which was something I was afraid of when I first bought some of Catnip Confection's toys. I wasn't sure how my carpet sharks would react to the silver vine, but they like it. The honeysuckle got a 2 cats love out of 4 rating. The silverthorne however got a 4 out of 4. In fact, my scruffy little blind cat has been carying one of these acorns around since they arrived. It's adorable. Thank you catnip confections! My cats have forsaken their store bought toys... all 900 billion of them. >.> lol


Just received these today, and my girl went right to them. She especially loves the catnip filled one. Plus these are super cute! I will definitely order more, when needed. Thank you so much.


Don’t hesitate about ordering these. My cat doesn’t always respond to catnip but she adored this trio. She actually started attacking the packaging as I began to unpack it. If that isn’t a sign of fresh ingredients, I don’t know what is. Absolutely darling!


I think this is Alfred's favorite toy. Definitely reccomend.
