Plague rats are a whimsical catnip and valerian cat toy that cats love.
Valerian creates a more mellow playtime than catnip alone, and cats seem to prefer it. However, the Plague Rat has a strong odor that some humans don't like. We store our ratsies in the freezer when we aren't playing with them.
The cover is a rough-textured cloth that the cats love, but it doesn't stand up very well.
All that being said, we always have at least one Plague Rat in the house. We bring it out when we have visitors, particularly if they are history buffs, Monty Python fans, or CDC employees.
