Playing is at the top of almost every cat's list of favourite things to do. This means that toys with valerian are always a good idea as a Christmas present for your cat.

A valerian toy provides variety so your cat will leave your Christmas decorations alone. We have many fun toys that your cat won’t be able to get enough of, meaning its attention will be turned away from your Christmas tree decorations.
Why do cats go crazy for valerian?
Valerian is one of the plants that cats love. Valerian has a euphoric effect on most cats, which is the opposite to the calming effect that this herb has on humans. A toy with valerian inside will capture your pet’s interest in a big way. The scent of valerian encourages cats to play and tumble and roll around. This means that fun is guaranteed at Christmas.
