4cats visit to the Orlando cat cafe

English Post | German Post

Hi everyone,

Earlier this year we were on a business trip to Orlando and while there decided to also checkout the local cat cafe!

And we brought them an extra special present, some of our new and upcoming premium toys selection! : D

We wouldn’t want to be the person / at that tries to take the toy of this little fella… The looks most definitely say “this is mine and I shall NOT EVER part with it!”

We thought that this black and white chap was especially adorable! And he got super lucky as he got to try out our new premium rustling cushion AND our new premium cuddly cushion. 🙂

Ginger cats will always have a very special place for us here at 4cats so plenty of pics had to be taken. 😉

One of the best parts of the Orlando cat cafe is that most of the cats are available for adoption to find their forever home! This type of cafe certainly seems to be a lovely improvement to the older rescue centers with limited space for the cats until they find their forever home.

The cafe didn’t just feature furniture for the humans but also the very important environmental enrichment for the resident cats! Plus this little one decided that the backpack looked tasty haha!

So if you are in Orlando and need a few hours of tranquility with cats away from the crazy Theme Parks why not check out this fantastic cafe on the outskirts of Orlando? More details about the Orlando Cat Cafe can be found here. Bookings are strongly recommended as only a limited amount of people can enter the cafe each hour to ensure the cat safety. The cost is $8 per hour, per person which in comparison to other cat cafes we’ve been to is excellent value for money!

Thanks,

Marc

International Cat Care Street Cats photography Winner – Mei Catherall

English Post | German Post

icatcare banner

Good Morning everyone,

The charity we work with International Cat Care run an amazing competition this year on street cats and we thought it would be nice to share with you who their winners were.

2017 ‘Street Cats’ photography competition winning image – photographed by Mei Catherall from the UK

“I was in Sousse, Tunisia, just after the Arab Spring. I found myself alone down a seemingly abandoned alleyway when I was startled by the appearance of this cat. As I explored the area she kept an eye on me, as if tolerating my presence in her domain, popping up at a safe distance at every turn.

This was the last look back over her shoulder before she disappeared deeper into the labyrinth, daring me to follow her but somehow knowing that I wouldn’t and that she could go back to her streetwise lonesome scavenging, never being sure if she could have trusted me but having shared a moment with me that I still treasure.”

The judges felt that this image reflected the hot and tough life of many street cats and the need for us to care about their welfare.  They also loved the composition of the photograph and the direct gaze of the cat.

Mei’s winning image features in the 2018 Street Cats Calendar which will be sold to raise funds for International Cat Care’s cat welfare work.

To find out more and to pre-order your copy of the calendar for just £5 click here.

Cat Body Language

English Post | German Post

Hi everyone,

Did you ever wonder what your cat is trying to tell you with their body language? 🙂

Well we found a super cute little graphic for you that will give you some insights into this. 😀

We hope you found this as cute and adorable as we did! And of course do your cats do the annoying laptop blocker as well?

4cats toys travel around the world and meet Matilda the Algonquin hotel cat in NYC

English Post | German Post

Hi everyone,

Towards the end of last year Marc from Katzenworld travelled to NYC with some of our toys.

He left a few of these toys as very special presents for a very special cat called Matilda at the Algonquin Hotel in NYC.

Matilda very much enjoyed our square cushion with our special 4catsnip filling.

As the hotel is of course very busy they took Marc and they toys to one of the storage rooms so Matilda had some peace and quietness to enjoy her toy. 🙂

This iconic hotel in New York has had a “Matilda” living with them 1986 and each Matilda has been the most important resident of this hotel.

As you can imagine a cat in charge of an entire hotel’s guests well being has quite a busy schedule and so it’s not surprising that she has a personal executive assistant, Alice de Almeida.

If you happen to be in New York you should definitely pay this hotel a visit and say hi to Matila and Alice. 🙂

Thanks,

Marc

4cats Zoo Enrichment Project – Not just house cats like catnip & valerian!

English Post | German Post

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a very special post for you! A while back our company did a little experiment / study with the big cats in the Zoo in Cologne.

As you can see it’s not just house cats that are interested in Catnip and Valerian toys. 😉

But for most seeing one of the Tigers and other large cats play with an over sized version of our toys is quite something!

Environmental enrichment is something that is very important for large and small cats alike as after all our house tigers are descendants of their wild ancestors and their hunting instinct needs to be kept occupied. Ideally with a toy or two instead of a human’s foot. 😉

We hope  you liked the photos and video and will be back again soon!

Thanks,

Marc

Giveaway Winner Rose and her Kitties Review our toys

English Post | German Post

Hi everyone,

We hope you are having a great week?

As some of you may know we are currently running a series of giveaways with our partner Katzenworld and from one of the recent ones we got some lovely photos sent in.

Please find below the little Review post kindly provided by Rose and her cats:

Just a quick post to say Thank You Very Much for our 4Cats giveaway win. The kitties were really excited to receive the parcel, and enjoyed helping me unpack the box.

4cats toys

“Hey Onni, look at this box full of things. It smells great!”

155 img201704261743414640

“You’re right Pepper, these things smell great! I think they’re for us kitties. I hope Mum hurries and unpacks the box.”

144 img201704261740550520

“Hey! What are you two looking at?” mews Naja as she saunters down from the cat tree. “Oooh yes, I’m sure these must be for us, you know how much Mum and Dad love us. And Mum said we won a prize recently”

152 img201704261742130101

“I love this smelly Valerian! It smells a bit like Dad’s feet and smelly cheese!” says Pepper, as she’s playing with the Dolphin.

“You’re right Pepper, the Dolphin is fun. This Cat Nip pillow is fun to rub on too. Smells great!” says Naja.

“This Valerian pillow is keeping me amused” says Taivas. “It’s purrfect for wrestling with!”

143 20170421175016

“I prefer to just lie and gently rub on the Valerian pillow” says Sweepy

137 20170421144036

“I like to have a good roll and rub on it” says Flash

141 20170421134247

“Hmm, none of us are quite sure what to do with this one, but I just like to rub my head on it” says Pepper

139 20170421134113

Everybody loves this Dolphin. Here are Onni and Taivas with it.

As you can see, our cats are extremely impressed with their 4Cats toys. I’ve only given them these four shown so far, saving the others for another time.

You can smell the quality of the Valerian and CatNip in these toys yourself – our cats are fussy about cat nip, and won’t play with inferior nip. So judging by their response to these toys, they’re obviously high quality.

Our kitties give 4Cats toys a 5 star recommendation, and I would buy them in the future.

Sadly Cookie was outside whilst gathering photos, but she has given her approval to these toys too.
