Today we are looking at Valerian Toys. These valerian toys are produced by 4cats (click for more details) a German company.
They are filled with Valerian root which is an alternative to catnip and not to be confused with it. While the smell of Valerian at times might be a bit off-putting to your humans us cats sure LOVE it! 🙂
It is said that on average of 70 percent of cats are attracted to this, which is why you may find that your own house tiger doesn’t go mad for it.
Recommendation is that you supervise your cat while playing with valerian toys and ensure to take the toy away once you believe they have played with it enough. If you are owned by more than one cat you may want to put out a few toys at the time. Check out our video what may happen otherwise. 😉
To make sure that your Valerian toys last longer you should seal them into plastic bags after each use. But please don’t forget to let them dry out before doing so! You may want to leave them on the top of a cupboard for that btw… otherwise the drying may not turn out too well. ;P
Oliver: *Sniff* Is this the smell of Christmas?
Nubia: It sure does. 😀
Have you watched the video carefully? Despite my brother Oliver not liking valerian that much something happened towards the end of the video! 😉
