SUPPLIERS OF CAT LUCK
The best cat toys in the Benelux produced on a daily basis in consultation with cat experts. We are proud of the brand and that translates into our commitment to a full premium product.
We distinguish ourselves by obsessively working on quality toys in combination with unremitting service and advice so that cats are happy with our range. With us, the cat is central!
All natural by-products such as pheasant and goose feathers used to make Tabby Tijger for the manufacture of toys originate in Europe and the United States and are 95% manufactured from A to Z in our own Tabby Tijger Studio in Antwerp.
We then personally test all products against some strict criteria before we launch them in the market. We do this because we believe that safe and high quality products should have priority over cheap and unsafe toys from Asia or other countries where animals are mistreated for their feathers or fur.
We are committed to the Convention on the Conservation of European Wildlife and Natural Habitats. That is our guarantee!
WE USE AS FEW COLOURED FEATHERS TABBY TIJGER TOYS
AS FEW COLOURED FEATHERS AS POSSIBLE.
Only for the Standard Bird Deluxe we use marabou feathers and vegetable-based dyes only - without heavy metals and other toxic components that are unfortunately often found in most cat toys. Working on a vegetable basis does make the colouring process is much more difficult. The result also depends on the biological structure of the feathers. And this can vary according to the condition of the birds when we collect their feathers, the time of year, their diet, etc. Therefore, in 99% of the cases, you will usually find the natural colours in our toys.
CHEAP TOYS FROM "THE SPECIALIST SHOP"
COMPARED TO THE HIGH-QUALITY TABBY TIJGER GAMES.
For the well-being of your cats and animals in general, it is important to be aware that in 90% of the cases other brands offer Blood Feather Refills that are manufactured or obtained in an animal-unfriendly manner. This goes completely against our principle! Even worse, you can often buy them at the corner of the street in the so-called (pet) friendly 'pet shop'.
The Tabby Tijger Cruelty-free' pheasant and goose feathers, on the other hand, are collected during the moulting season in the countryside of North Brabant (NL). Therefore, all the toys in our range are unique and often one-of-a-kind. Our quality model ensures that every year we thoroughly assess every supplier according to the Tabby Tijger manifesto.
Moreover, we are not the only ones to share this view. More and more people are thinking carefully about what they offer their cats:
"Cruelty-free feathers are much better quality. Commercial craft feathers are sold by the ounce because that's a faster way to sort them, rather than examine and count each feather separately. But if you look at those bags of feathers, they are often of rather poor quality, very uneven in size, sometimes even broken, and are usually "blood feathers," which means they were not fully-formed on the quill end and pulled from a dead carcass, probably by a machine. Cruelty-free feathers, on the other hand, are fully-formed, naturally-shed, and hand sorted. They are usually sold by "count" rather than "bulk" and yes, they cost a lot more per feather. You just can't get that quality with commercial machine-packaging."

OUR COMMITMENT AND ENGAGEMENT.
We determine the success of Tabby Tijger by fulfilling our mission. By advocating the right way to live with cats, we want to inspire all cat owners to become change agents in their own right.
We are therefore proud to support some initiatives that owe their existence to this mission.
