Leaping lizards! If your cat loves honeysuckle, this handcrafted wood toy is sure to be a favorite.
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 love both!
Catnip Confections Honeysuckle Wood Lizards are handmade from select slices of raw, Canadian-grown honeysuckle wood that are sanded and tied together with sturdy, unbleached organic cotton twine. For added realism, two beady eyes are gently burned into the wood. The head, body and tail also swivel into different poses for more fun.
Wetting the lizard with water will further enhance its enticing aroma, but some cats take care of that themselves by drooling. The wood can also be periodically refreshed with a light sanding to give your cat many years of enjoyment.
Honeysuckle Wood Lizards are approximately 5 inches long and 1 inch wide, but each one is unique and the exact size and appearance of your cat's little lizard will vary.
Every lizard is freshly sanded right before shipping to maximize its scent, and will arrive inside a ventilated pillow box with a short summary of honeysuckle use and care printed on the back.
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. ***
Shipping from United States
Items are made to order to ensure that they are as fresh as possible. New orders are currently shipping out within 3-5 days of order placement. Large orders may take longer. If you have specific time requirements for receiving your order, please be sure to let me know!
Standard shipping is via USPS 1st Class Mail. USPS Priority Mail shipping is available as an option during checkout for US deliveries. High value orders ($200+) will be sent with Signature Confirmation. If your cat is impatient, expedited delivery by Express Mail is also available by request. Please contact me for a quote.
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).
As of January 1, 2019, Canada Post collects import fees/taxes at delivery for orders worth more than CAN$20 and Royal Mail collects import fees/taxes on standard shipments worth more than £15 and on gift shipments worth more than £39.

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.
