How It All Began
As someone who has shared her home with cats and dogs since childhood, I found myself trying to purchase toys that would keep my feline family members consistently active and interested in play. As anyone who has a cat knows, this is a near-impossible task. The importance of mental stimulation and physical exercise for indoor cats is something we are just beginning to research, though many cat lovers have long understood this concept.
Knowing that cats never get bored with the real thing, I set out to create toys that look and move like my cats’ favorite prey. I took a very intentional approach in designing the toys to satisfy a cat’s desire to hunt and an owner’s desire to have a safe, fun, and consistent outlet for interactive play. Every aspect of Nekochan’s product is purposefully chosen to create a toy which is as attractive as possible for cats while sourcing materials which were not harmful, like using a minimum amount of water-based, non-toxic glue, and clips and strings which will not catch on a cat’s pads. In addition, each toy is extensively tested by the members of the Nekochan family, and their feedback is used to improve each toy before it reaches your hands.
The Nekochan commitment to high quality products has continued over the years as we’ve expanded our line to include our award-winning Neko Nappers. I am now happy to introduce the new Neko Birbug and Telescoping Rod. I could not be more excited to share our new products with you. They have truly been a labor of love, and I think you will find these to be the most creative and highest quality cat toys you or your kitties have encountered.
