Merlin and Rhiannon Valerian Toy Testimonies 

Hey, Rhiannon, check out this owl valerian toy I got from the Katzenworld Shop sent all the way from the UK! (We live in NC, USA) Let’s see if you like it.

What’s this interesting smell?

Aw, this is nice.

“Hey, whatcha got there,” asked Merlin aka The Bruiser.

Mine, all mine!

I think I purred and gone to heaven…

Testimony from Merlin and Rhiannon’s human slave – Merlin isn’t allowed catnip as he becomes very naughty and wants to bite and scratch Rhiannon or me. He behaved very well with the valerian owl toy and I ordered more from the Katzenworld Shop. Perhaps, it will calm him down on his next dreaded vet visit?

Dirk vs. our new Premium Cat Wrestler

English Post | German Post

Dirk vs. the 4cats Premium Cat Wrestler

4cats are working on a new premium range toys and Dirk was one of the lucky cats that got to test the new toys! He loves his old 4cats toys so how about this new range?

This look says it all, right?!

This Cat Wrestler is a really great toy for him. Dirk loves kicking and hugging it. It has catnip inside – as you will have read in Renegade’s review the versions with the blue and green strings contain catnip. It’s not too much catnip that drives him nuts, but it’s enough to get him curious about the toy. The fabric is soft and quite strong, strong enough to withstand his kicks 😉

Dirk is not too interested in the tassels. As far as he’s concerned these tassels make it easier for me to take his toy away and he does not like that! However, I do like them as it makes it easier for me to play with Dirk and the Wrestler – not taking your toy away Dirk just trying to have fun together 🙂

Dirk is an only cat so the concept of sharing is alien to him. But then, most cats – whether they live alone or share a home with other cats – don’t like sharing anything anyway. If you live with several cats with strong hunting/kicking skills then I’d do the same as what’s recommended with litter trays: 1 for each cat + 1 extra, then there’s never a fight over who gets to wrestle with this toy 😉

Stavros trials our 4cats catnip toys

English Post | German Post

Hi everyone,

Please find below a lovely review by Jordan Catell from the UK. In this review he trialled our large crinkle cushions:

Stavros is my cat, he is a sullen, silver boy with the most charming personality. Over the past two or so years that I have owned him, I have tried all manner of toys and nothing seems to pique his interest, he seemed to ignore catnip, having a small sniff before carrying on with his business. He’s not a miserable boy, he will snuggle if he has to, and he loves a bit of fuss, but present him with a toy and you’re sure to be greeted with a derisive scowl.

I like to think that this lack of interest is because he is a sophisticated feller, I kid myself that his human counterpart would be a multilingual, Nobel prizewinning physicist with a penchant for the finer things in life, whereas the truth is I’m just the owner of a slightly grumpy boy! So I am sure you can imagine my delight when I found a catnip toy that he just couldn’t leave alone.

P1030286

When I introduced Stavros to the 4cats catnip pillow the results were unexpected to say the least! As you can see he was apprehensive at first, but soon the ‘nip took hold! He was rolling around, dribbling and purring without a care in the world. I’d never saw him behave in such a way, I saw my grumpy man turn into a playful kitten before my very eyes!

P1030305

When Stavros began to relax he wouldn’t let me get anywhere near his new favorite toy, my grumpy boy was back! It’s safe to say that he loved his experience with the 4cats catnip pillow, I’m happy to have finally found a toy that he loved, and and am over the moon now that I know what to get him for Christmas!

Renegade trials our new Premium Toys

English Post | German Post

Today we would like to share with you a little preview of our new premium cat toy range!

These will be available shortly and in the run-up to their official launch we’ve sent some of these to “testers” around the world.

The first one to be featured is Renegade who lives in London with our friends from Katenworld. Those of you that follow both blogs may have seen his mischievous adventures already. 😉

In this first review we are testing the catnip version with him. You can identify the filling of the new toys by their string colours, blue and green strings contain our special 4catsnip filling. So what does Renegade think of them?

He immediately fell in love with them! Especially with the tassels on the durable strings. 🙂 The interesting thing about Renegade is that he is more of a hunter which is very common for exotic breeds such as the Oriental cat.

In addition to the tassels / strings providing a brilliant engagement factor on the toys he also very much liked kicking and shredding our large Cat Wrestler!

But our favourite moment has gotta be the sneak attack he performed!

Let’s make the toy think it’s safe by looking cute… followed by…

… a deadly sneak attack from above! 😀

As you can see our new toys are not just brilliant for cats that like to lick and get excited about valerian and catnip but also provide top environmental enrichment for the little hunters. 🙂

Thanks,

Marc

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.
