Our friends from 4cats and Hamerton Zoo Park are collaborating for a fun event on the 29th of July. The 29th of July is Global Tiger Day which is trying to raise awareness fo the endangered species and many companies like our friends are taking part in raising funds for the global conservation project.
Full Details below:
The 29th July is ‘Global Tiger Day’. Hamerton Zoo Park will be raising funds for 21st Century Tiger’s conservation projects with wild tigers. Throughout the day lots of events will be taking place at the zoo from feeding sessions, talks, to raffles!
And us from 4cats Heimtierbedarf GmbH will once again be working with Hamerton Zoo Park on a very special visitor attraction. Last year we introduced our enrichment campaign to provide the resident wild cats and Big cats with fun supersized versions of our cats toys. And for the special Global Tiger Day we will once again be providing the Zoo with supersized cat toys which will be a delight for visitors to watch.
Many owners already understand the alluring effect of valerian and catnip on their house cats but when people think of Tigers & Lions they often think of vicious hunters that are not much into playing with toys. However, this is totally wrong, just like our smaller feline companions big cats are very playful and intelligent – the only difference being that a playful swipe of their paws could cause more than a mere scratch to humans.
And like house cats, they need to be entertained! For this reason, we developed supersized versions of many of our popular cat toys. These supersized versions are made of strong sisal rope and coloured with vegetable juice such as beetroot to ensure that they are not toxic to the big cats. The toys are filled with a mix of hay and cat attract herbs such as valerian in order to be of interest to the big cats.
These toys are provided by us free of charge as part of our efforts to support conservation projects of endangered species of wild cats and provide Zoos such as Hamerton Zoo Park not just with a great toy for their big cats to play with but also a visitor attraction as many people can simply not believe how much fun the big cats have with our toys.
What many people don’t realise is that the use of cat attract goes back hundreds of years as it’s been used to lure Tigers and Lions long before the pet industry started using it for the toys of house cats.
