The fish has a varying effect on my cat. Dribble reacts mildly to the spice mix (perhaps because she is already naturally quiet). She smells the salmon, sets her teeth in it a few times, and then falls asleep next to the cuddle fish. I haven't noticed the wild peddling yet. I haven't figured out which herb (catnip, valerian or matatabi) triggers my cat the most. The fish itself is large, and for my cat personally that is detrimental since she is afraid of larger things. I therefore have to offer the fish inconspicuously. Finally, I wanted to say that the three available fish are beautifully manufactured. Such a fish in a large sealable jar really has a nice decorative value.
