Rodney Rat is an association toy handmade from natural sheepskin and sisal and he helps kitties understand that this is their cat furniture to play and sleep on.
Cats find sheepskin extremely relaxing that's why we use it as our bedding on Sophisticated Scratch cat trees.
Sheepskin is cool in the summer and warm in the winter and great for pets of any age as its fibres breathe to act like a natural thermostat.
Rodney Rats body is handmade from sheepskin which contains lanolin and one popular theory about lanolin and felines is that cats love the scent and taste of the lanolin in the wool fibers because it reminds them of their mothers.
The lanolin in the wool also acts as a natural moisturiser, keeping your pets coat glossy, and it also deters bacterial growth and other irritants (like bugs) it is often used as key ingredient in flea / tick control sprays.
Rodneys tail is made from natural sisal and allows a cat's claws to slide through the material, shredding as they go. Cat's love this because they feel as though they are leaving a visible mark for other cats to read, plus it feels great to them
Rodney Rat is the most natural cat toy you will find and only available from Sophisticated Scratch.
