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!



4cats Zoo Projekt – Nicht nur Stubentiger mögen Baldrian & Katzenminze!

English Post | German Post

Hallo Liebe Leser,

Heute haben wir einen ganz besonderen Beitrag für Euch! Wir haben mit dem Zoo in Köln kleines Experiment durchgeführt und zwar haben wir ausprobiert was die großen Verwandten unserer Hauskatzen von Baldrian und Katzenminze halten. 🙂

Wie Ihr sehen könnt war das Projekt super erfolgreich da es bewiesen hat das nicht nur Hauskatzen Baldrian und Katzenminze mögen. 😀

Natürlich ist es schon was ganz anderes die großen Tiger mit den Spielzeugen zu sehen!

Das man Katzen genug Abwechslung in Ihrem Lebensraum geben muss ist natürlich bereits vielen bekannt aber oftmals vergessen wir das unsere kleinen Stubentiger von den großen Katzen Abstammen und auch noch einen Jagdinstinkt habe. Und dieser ist gut durch Spielzeuge in Schach zu halten.  😉

Wir hoffen euch haben die Bilder und das Video gefallen und wir werden bald wieder einen neuen Beitrag veröffentlichen.

Special 4cats Toys present for Streetcat Bob at Summer Event 2016

Hi everyone,

Those of you that follow Katzenworld might be familiar with these photos already but for those that haven’t seen them we thought it would be great to share them with you!

Earlier this year our friends at Katzenworld attended a charity event supported by James and Bob (yes the famous streetcat!) so of course we couldn’t resist to make some special toys JUST for him.

Don’t you agree that he looks absolutely adorable with the guitar? 😉


Just about to play a tune or two for us on the catnip guitar! hehe


Of course we made one of our iconic pillows for him as well. 😀

And it looks like Bob is giving them his paw of approval!😀

While the special toys for Bob might have been one-offs we’ve got plenty of valerian and 4cats toys available! If your local pet shop doesn’t yet stock them tell them to get in touch with us by sending an email to marc@4cats.de and we can help them stocking these.
Further details of our toys can also be found on our website for consumers you can also check out Katzenworld’s online shop that stocks a large amount of our valerian and catnip toys.
