So, each plush comes with a little booklet. I had to go get some more printed today. The guy asked me about what they were for and I explained.
He implied that he wanted a Mr.Fancy for his wife, then rang me up for my really expensive printing job for … $12?! Normally it would have been like $80.
So I came back and gave him a Mr.Fancy! It was great that we were able to save some cash!! Printing is expensive… It’s double sided, then we trim them and staple to the booklets ourselves.
Each cat has their own unique book :) Just wanted to share that lucky break I got!!

I finally got my order in from thetinytabby ! They’re so cute, I can’t wait to get more! Maddie seems to approve of them too (after she stopped trying to eat them, anyway). It’d be so great if you guys can support them, too! They raise awareness for cats that are considered “less-adoptable” and half of the proceeds go to actual animal shelters! (I’m secretly hoping they make a cat with feline leukemia, the disease Maddie has) You can check them out here ! 

I’d love to do a feline leukemia kitty :)

I was really impressed with ourselves that we made about 70 plushies in the past week! But then I went to grab some more fabric and found a bag of completed cats that I had stashed away and forgot about! So now that means we sewed nearly 100 cats last week! phhewww we’ve still got a bunch more to make, but I guess we are lightning fast plushie makers now! We are only two girls (with day jobs) so I think that’s pretty dang impressive >:D
In addition to my normal massive Friday kitty mailing, I’ll be mailing even more on Saturday! I haven’t gotten a chance to email the people who had theirs mailed today, so stay tuned for that :)

Just FYI

I’m not responding to the messages with name suggestions so they can all remain nice and neat in my inbox for easy scrolling. But, I did read them and thank you for all of your submissions so far! It’s going to be a hard choice because there are so many adorable names! Just wanted to make sure you knew I wasn’t ignoring them :)

The Tiny tabby - FAQ

What’s the deal?
We are a small business based in New York that donates 50% of our plush sales to cat related non-profits such as animal shelters and rescue groups. We focus on the “less-adoptable” cats, and encourage people to be more open to the idea of adopting an adult cat or a “special” cat.
We used Indiegogo to raise our initial funds.

I contributed to your Indiegogo campaign. When will I get my perk?
We are trying really hard to have them all mailed out by the end of July or early August. We are currently sewing like crazy! Please understand that some aspects are out of our control (like the time it took to get our custom fabric printed) and we are mailing them as fast as we can make them!

I missed the campaign, when will your store be open?
After the Indiegogo perks are all mailed out. So, end of July or early August.

Will you make a cat with this disability/condition/etc ?
I have a lot of designs in mind, but please feel free to send me a note with your idea!

I heard you mention guest artists, what’s the deal with that?I already have two guest artists lined up. I’m not 100% sure how we will be handling the process, so I will let everyone know how that will work later on. One thing at a time :)

Can I make a suggestion on where you should donate next?
YES. Email me at admin@thetinytabby.com

Can I help?
Spreading the word is extremely helpful! For the other stuff, we’ve got it under control!
