Made in the USA Cat Toys
As you navigate pet store aisles or read the fine print of online product listings, it becomes clear that NEARLY ALL cat toys are made overseas.
Most cat toy brands prioritize mass production at low costs. Their factories (primarily in China) churn out millions of cat toys cheaply by using inexpensive materials and manufacturing practices. This impacts safety and durability!
In my quest to give my cats, Bella and Lewie, the best, I would rather spend a little more on cat products that are safe, long-lasting, and made in the USA.
However, while shopping, I found the absence of cat toys made in the USA both astonishing and frustrating! That’s when I had an idea… I was going to create a company that makes made in the USA cat toys.
Since then, thousands of cat parents searching for "made in the USA cat toys" have found us – Americat Company. We are a cat-loving, woman-owned, small business founded in 2016. We make cat products right here in America from safe, durable, U.S. materials.
In this article, we are sharing:
1) Why it’s important to know what goes into your cats’ toys
2) An in-depth view of the materials and manufacturing processes that make our made in the USA cat toys safe
Know What Is in Your Cats’ Toys
Picture a mouse toy for cats… synthetic fur, eyes, ears, tail, and stuffing. That’s at least five different materials that cats put into their mouths.
Alarming as it is, the cat toy market is unregulated. Therefore, ask the following before buying toys for your cats:
- Are the materials safe?
- Are the pieces choking hazards?
- Are the glues safe?
Learn more about which cat toy materials are unsafe and pose choking risks in this prior article we wrote.
Also, check what kind of glue is in your cats' toys. According to the Mount Sinai Health System, certain glues contain hazardous chemicals (ethanol, xylene, light aliphatic naphtha, n-hexane, and toluene). Even the names sound dangerous, and they are! Worse yet, these chemicals produce dangerous fumes that can be poisonous to your cats and even to you.
Choose Safe Materials
Americat Company sources all our safe, non-toxic materials from within the United States. We believe using American-made materials adds an extra layer of security, protecting our cats and giving cat parents peace of mind.
Safe, Non-toxic Ingredients
We diligently researched safe, non-toxic materials in order to create our made in the USA cat toys.
Our cat toys are made from only 2 materials! – Both of which are impeccably safe:
1. Corrugated Cardboard: Derived from trees, cardboard is a safe, chemical-free material.
2. Non-Toxic Glue: The glue we use is certified non-toxic with FDA-approval for indirect food contact. This type of adhesive is often used to make wooden serving platters safe for human use.
Also, our glue is vegan. It DOES NOT contain any animal products. Furthermore, its production line is isolated, eliminating any chance of contamination from animal products.
Choose Safe Manufacturing
Made in the USA
Americat Company cat toys (like all Americat Company products) are proudly made in the USA. We ensure fair compensation, safe work environments, and follow U.S. labor, safety, and environmental regulations. Additionally, we believe in supporting our local economy.
