- Product Description
Cats who suffer from irritation, frustration and lethargy may benefit from Matatabi. Puur Matatabi provides distraction and calm in stressful situations such as when travelling, moving house, introducing a new member of the family, a stay in kennels or a trip to the vet. Cats might show excessive stress in different ways:
Key features of each ingredient
The Matatabi tree comes from the same family as the Kiwi Tree that grows in Asia, particularly in China and Japan. The dried twigs of this tree have a very special effect on cats. There is a substance that cats like to eat, which helps them relax. Matatabi contains Actinicine and matatabi lactone. These are alkaloids that affect the nerve stimulation in the brains of felines. It is often the case that cats who are relaxed have less interest in the sticks than cats that are suffering from stress.
Dosage and administration
You can give Matatabi (food supplement) as a toy. Cats enjoy playing with the stick, some chew or bite it to pieces. Many cats will roll and rub on places where the stick or its pieces have been. After playing with it, the cat is calmer and may groom itself or go to sleep. If the bark is removed, it can be even more effective.
There are no harmful side effects. Some cats respond strangely to the sticks. Some owners report that their cat seemed "ecstatic" and some cats drool (a little). This is harmless.
Do not give more than two to three times a week, otherwise the cat will get used to the effect and the sticks will become less interesting. Take the sticks away once the cat is done playing.
Please consult a veterinarian before combining with medications. If problems occur, stop using the sticks and consult your veterinarian.
