Something about strings excites my little one. She loves to pick a toy up by its strings and toss it around, so it didn't take long for this toy to look a lot worse for wear. Overall, I'd recommend this toy for a cat that likes to play rough. And I didn't notice any adverse reaction to the catnip or the silvervine.
Some cats are highly sensitive to Silvervine, which is becoming a popular stimulating ingredient in cat toys - either alone or blended with catnip. If your cat loves these toys but is left jumpy and not themselves even hours after putting the toy away, they may be sensitive to it. Safer to stick with catnip only. / Some cats do not appear to be sensitive to catnip. It’s possible they could be less sensitive to Silvervine as well, but I can only share from my experience.
I was hesitant to buy this toy because the "cheese" strings are the kind of thing my cat with pica usually likes to eat, but I'm glad I tried it! All three of them play with it, and the string pieces are a different kind of material, nylon rope almost, that she hasn't shown any sign of chewing on. My more toy-crazy female LOVES it and entertains herself grabbing it by a string and flinging it across the room to chase. Even the special-needs cat has taken a turn rolling around on it (loves the silvervine!) and using it as a pillow. It's held up great so far with no indication of the strings being pulled out or fraying and seems very well made. Highly recommended!
