4cats cuddly toys: valerian and 4catsnip

Both fillings have a very special effect on cats. Both valerian and 4catsnip have a stimulating effect on cats that will entice to be more playful. Even older cats seems to regain a new lease of life. The reactions of cats include ecstatic playing, intense licking and ardent rubbing on the toy. Also many cats, which do not normally react to toys, have quite a reaction to both our valerian and 4catsnip toys.

As a long-time producer of cat toys, we have used our years of experience to develop our very own blend of catnip: we call it 4catsnip. Catnip is a very popular filling for cat toys, since it is an irresistible attraction to most cats. Additionally, it is also perfectly suited to distract cats in stressful situations such as when visiting the vet.

Cuddly toys for your cat

4cats Heimtierbedarf are the world's leading producer of stuffed cat toys and strive to provide our customers with excellent products in both valerian and catnip versions. Our items are handmade, filled and packaged in Germany. In the case of our valerian toys, the same, unchanged, formulation has been used for more than 30 years.

Manufactured exclusively in Germany

Our cuddly toys, filled with valerian or with 4catsnip, are designed with love at our company's facility based in Stolberg where they are hand-crafted and then placed in sealed packaging to preserve their potency. We eschew the use of any adhesives, metal parts or other dangerous components.

Our careful manufacturing process uses only selected, certified pollutant-free, raw materials.

This results in a robust, long-life, product which is free of adhesives, plastics, metal parts or components that could detach and be swallowed. Our cuddly toys in both valerian or 4catsnip are the highest quality, versatile, safe and proven. You can learn more about the production process here.

Best quality and safety for your ”house tiger”

We have the most demanding product testers for our cuddly toys: our own cats! All toys are thoroughly tested by them at home. Only if they give their "Ok" are the toys put into production and then made available on the market.

We at 4cats Heimtierbedarf are one of the leading producers of cat toys worldwide. We take great pride in providing our customers with outstanding quality and genuine Made in Germany products. In addition to careful processing and cat-friendly design, we only use selected raw materials. All products have 4catsnip (our own catnip mix) or valerian fillings.
Robustness and product safety for our purring customers is extremely important to us.

Highest care during production

production at 4cats - packing for transport

We deliberately avoid using organic material as the main fillings in our cat toys. The fillings we use therefore do not harbour germs, nor do they provide a suitable breeding ground for mites or mold.
We do not use any metal or plastic parts in the production of our Valerian and 4catsnip toys; nor do we use glue or parts which could fall off or be swallowed. And, of course, we do not use real animal fur in any of our toys!
Numerous well-known pet retailers trust in our products and sell them very happily and successfully to their customers. Our satisfied customers include almost all well-known pet shop chains and chain shops, as well as veterinary clinics and many independent retail shops in the pet supplies sector.
