A Very Valerian Christmas and Giveaway

A Very Valerian Christmas and Giveaway

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and then we have Black Friday, one of the biggest scams shopping days of the year. Christmas will be here before you know it. In the condo we've had our Christmas lights lit for a few weeks (really!) and are in full ho-ho-ho mode. We're not the only ones celebrating early. The new line of holiday cat toys is now available at the Bavarian Cat Toy™ company and they sent me some really cute samples. Later I'm gonna give four winners a chance to win toys from their holiday line.

Disclaimer: I received compensation in exchange for my fair and honest review. Bavarian Cat Toys is not responsible for the contents of this post. Stunning Keisha only shares products and information that I believe are of interest to my readers.

You might remember Bavarian Cat Toys cos I gave away some of their goodies, er, toys, a few months ago. Allow me to give you a refresher course on our sponsor. The Aumeuller-Korbwaren family hand make these toys in Germany for Bavarian Cat Toys. The toys, sold throughout Europe and now available in the U.S., feature Bavarian-grown ingredients such as valerian, lavender, and anise. Natural spelt filling gives the toys shape and assures long-lasting quality and fun.

Some may find valerian too, er, pungent but not this kitteh. Valerian root contains the chemical valerinone which is similar to nepetalactone in catnip. While catnip has to be really good to grab my attention, the aroma of valerian gets it right away. After all, this is still the dawning of the age of valerian!

TW agrees that these are the cutest toys ever! I received a cute owl pillow named Lilo, adorable Cat Face Willy, Santa mouse and festive red "I ♡ my cat" kickeroo. If you can't find Bavarian Cat Toys in your local store, you can purchase directly from their website.

Now I'm gonna give four readers the chance to win one of these Bavarian Cat Toys. They've graciously offered to send a toy to four winners cos I told them humans seemed to be overwhelmed by a valerian overload. We cats can get overwhelmed too as we figure out which toy to bite on first.

Those are some of the cutest toys we've ever seen, CK! We're really liking this age of valerian. Thank you for sharing, and for the chance to win!

Mariodacat said...

Thanks for the offer of a giveaway CK. We will enter. Valerian is not my favorite, butt I do play with toys that don't have any smell, so M is sure I would play with those too. They do look like fun. Happy Thanksgiving you and your family.

Henry said...

I completely agree...all these holidays are sneaking up on us! I'm pretty sure I started hearing Christmas music by the end of October this year! lol

Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the rest of your day :)

Linda Szymoniak said...

I think my kitties would like the Christmasmouse the best, although they'd love ALL the toys. My baby kitty - Kotoha - turned six months old yesterday. I found her when she was just two weeks old and had to bottle feed her. She just LOVES toys, as does my daughter's cat, Arata.

Those toys look like lots of fun! Valerian is my favourite, but my mum says it smells like stinky feet.

pilch92 15andmeowing said...

That is a nice giveaway, but I am going to pass because I can't stand the smell of valerian- don't tell my kitties though. I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving!

Peaches and Paprika said...

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Pawsome giveaway! We especially love the cat face.

The Island Cats said...

Those are some really cool toys, CK. We love valerian.

Lola The Rescued Cat said...

I don't react to catnip, but I never tried valerian before. I wonder if I'll get tipsy? Happy Thanksgiving!

Robin Mudge said...

What a great prize! This is the best type of kitty Christmas present out there. I think that Manna and Dexter would like the kicker the best. That kitty face looks pretty fun too. We've never tried valerian, so it would be fun to give this a try!

When we were in Germany, we loved our Valerian toys! We wish we could find them here in Canada. All of those toys look great, but the Christmouse is very cute!

meowmeowmans said...

Those are such cool toys! There's a valerian pillow at the shelter, and many of the cats think it's da bomb! :)

meowmeowmans said...

Oh, and we like the kicker toy the best. :)

Thanks.

I think my cats would like the cat kicker the best.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

The Human does NOT like me to have Valerian in the house because it grosses her out, but *I* like it!

momsbusy said...

Wow! It's better than catnip? My cats will love this new "drug"! First choice would be the kicker toy. It's a great way to get those back legs moving to stay in shape! ;)

Lily said...

These toys look like fun! We love valerian root!

LauraJJ said...

Oh they are all so adorable, but I will say the Christmouse is my favorite!

BeadedTail said...

OMC! We love valerian! We'd love to win any of them but probably the kicker the most! Thanks for the opportunity CK!
