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 :)
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 :)
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 email@example.com
Can I help?
Spreading the word is extremely helpful! For the other stuff, we’ve got it under control!
Hoping this will help out with some of the frequently asked questions!
We will have a few different styles of catnip toys when our store opens up (end of this month if all goes well) and you can get them there! We will be revealing what they look like in the coming weeks :)
