Dirk playing with his 4cats Premium Motif Cushion

Motif 1

I think this picture says it all, no need for me to tell you Dirk loves 4cats Premium Motif Cushion 🙂

Those of you who are familiar with the 4cats toys will have noticed the green strings on this toy and you will know that means there’s catnip inside this cushion (they are available with valerian filling too).

When it comes to playing with this cushion, Dirk loves to cuddle this cushion. It’s bigger than the 4Cats Cuddly Cushion, but that’s no problem 🙂

Let it go mom, I want it all for myself

Another favourite game is the cat version of tug of war (a game loved by many dogs too). Though in Dirk’s case I’m obviously the opponent and Dirk always wins – well, I let him win 😉

Dirk doesn’t really kick this toy a lot, perhap just because it is slightly smaller than the 4cats Premium Rustling Cushion or their Wrestler Toy. I can imagine other cats won’t be put off by this though and will love kicking the cushion too!

Yeah!! It’s all mine now!!!

Dirk loves rolling around with his toy and sometimes even sleeps on top of it. I might be reading to much into that, but I really think he just wants to make sure I won’t “steal” his toy while he is napping.

Dirk’s version of this cushion has a birs on it, but there are others too and the toy also comes in various colours.

You can order yours with the catnip or valerian filling and pick your own colour too, so it’s almost perfectly tailored to your – or your cat’s – preferences!

This is me with my lovely cat Dirk! Let me tell you something about both of us.
I work as a cat sitter for Cat Care London and am basically surrounded by cats 24/7! I also occassionally walk dogs or board hamsters or rabbits, which Dirk doesn’t seem to care about at all!
Dirk is roughly 8 years old. I got him 6 years ago from a shelter. Dirk is truly the most loving and lovable cat I know. He is very interested in people and loves being cuddled a lot. Dirk spends most of his time relaxing with me or anywhere around the house really. He is also quite playful and loves the games that involve interaction the most.

Renegade: My brother and I got our paws on some of the Minoumi toys early!

Hi everyone,

It’s me Rennie her today the fastest and cutest cat from here to the end of the world! : D

Oliver: I am sure that was meant to read the most annoying cat right?

Renegade: Don’t distract me brother… don’t you see I am making important introductions here?

Renegade: See! We got some super exciting handmade toys from Minoumi in Germany! 😀

Renegade: I like the look of this pyramid… This one shall be mine! You can have the kicker brother. 😉

Oliver: Remind me why you got

Renegade: I wonder what the best way will be to play with this one. 😀

Renegade: This pyramid is just the right size to fit in paws so I can lick and chew on it. 😉

Oliver: Don’t break it… sister wants to have some fun with it too! 😮

Renegade: I never break my toys! Especially not this one. I love moving it around in my paws. <3

Oliver: Right it’s my turn now…

Oliver: I like the fact that these toys have MY colours so they should all be reserved for me!

Renegade: WHAT! No way… I have already laid claim to one of the pyramids and will never hand it over!

Oliver: Fine fine… You can keep that one. 😉

Oliver: This one is just the right size to dig my fangs in annnnnnd roll all over it. <3

Renegade: I guess we should point out what the humans thought of the toys?

Oliver: Yes our readers will want to know that!

Renegade: Ok! Well the humans said that they absolutely love these toys (do humans react to catnip too???) especially since the toys feel more like pieces of art that one wants to have around the house.

Renegade: On top of that they said that these toys are made of extra sturdy fabric and feel very well made ensuring that even I can’t easily rip them apart. (Why does everyone think I destroy toys today!!!)

Oliver: Our humans would also like to remind everyone that there are now mere days left to help make these fantastic cat toys reality for all felines around the world via the Minoumi Kickstarter campaign!

Oliver: We actually did a full post on their Kickstarter campaign a few weeks back here. And the campaign is now ALMOST there. At time of writing the campaign funding had exceeded 7000 Euros of the 10000 Euros target.

Dirk and the Webbox Festive Teaser Wand

As I mentioned in my previous post, Webbox also has a Festive Teaser Wand. I have to admit, this is my favourite of their festive toys as I can actually play with Dirk rather than just watch him play. Granted, I might feel differently after a big Christmas dinner 😉

I really love making Dirk chase toys around the house. There are many “fishing rod” style toys out there and many cats love them. These toys appeal to the cat’s inner hunter, which is great for all cats, but especially those who live indoors. It mimicks their natural behaviour to chase animals (which is why I also love making Dirk chase his treats).

Dirk loves when we play together as the interaction means the toy is less predictable. In the wild, chasing prey is also unpredicatable and from Dirk’s body language and the look in his eyes you can tell he’s very focussed and in hunting mode when playing with this toy. You can add some extra variety to the game by dangling this toy over your cat’s scratching post or your sofa. This means they will have to jump and climb to get to the toy and are a lot more active as a result.

The teaser comes in a festive red or purple colour. The teaser is a tin foil ball with a fluffy tail and also has some gold foil in the tail. The foil makes a rustling sound when you play with the toy, which many cats find very appealing. The fluffy tail looks very similar to a feather tail – I’ve not yet met a cat who doesn’t like feathers!

When you notice your cat is no longer in a hunting or chasing mood you can reward them by giving them the toy. Dirk sometimes drags it along to “his lair” (aka his bed) or he licks the feathers on the spot – much like cats do with their prey in the wild. Dirk has a very satisfied look on his face when he gets hold of the Teaser Wand after chasing it for a while. I’m sure your cat would too!

(As mentioned in the post about the Festive Pom Pom, Webbox toys are sold by many retailers, probably even your own supermarket too)
