Matatabi is a vine that is a member of the same family as the kiwi fruit. Matatabi also happens to be a plant with catnip-like qualities for cats that has been used in Japan for a long time to help soothe anxious cats.

Matatabi mats give the same soothing effects to your cat as catnip, but in a far less messy fashion. These Matatabi mats are sprayed with an extract from the Matatabi plant. Check out the pictures and video to see how cats react to the Matatabi mats.
