Meowy Janes is a New Jersey–based small business that specializes in catnip alternatives. They work with sustainable, family-owned farms to source their natural products.
I recently tried some of these out with my cats, and they were a hit! TBH they’ve never really been super into catnip — they’ll play with it, but they don’t go wild — so I was excited to see they were into these. They bat them around, rub their faces all over them, and ultimately, when they’re done, hide them under a chair or in their cat condo so they can come back to them later.
Promising review: “I have two cats, one special needs almost blind kitty, and one very lovey-dovey, very vocal kitty. The special needs kitty has not warmed up to these yet, but she usually needs extra time with new things. But my talkative kitty just loves them! I scraped off some bark as instructed, and she gnawed, tossed, chased, and altogether enjoyed them.” —Grace Cook
