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
