*What is the product you are making?
Custom made pet houses
-All houses are made with cozy fleece and have a fluffy bed base and are made to order, so people can choose the color they’d  like.

*What made you want to make these?
I wanted a comfy cozy house for my own kitty to sleep in and he loved it so much I thought other kitties would enjoy them too!

*What sizes of animals do you make them for?
Manly cats and small dogs, I’m trying to make a pattern for medium/large size dogs as well!

*What is the pricing like?
A cat/small dog  teepee is $40 I’m projecting a medium/large sized dog teepee will be $100.

*If someone wanted to order one how do they do that?
Email me at

*If someone wanted to order one how long would it take to make?
It should normally take about 3 days (maybe less, if they don’t have any color preferneces and I have some pre-made :)) but depending on color choices and what I have available it could take up to two weeks.

*As I know you work for the FMSPCA, what is the most rewarding thing about your job?
There are so many rewarding aspects of my job! Working with the animals and seeing the progress they make while their with us amazing. For instantance helping an extremely shy cat come out of their shell, we ‘ve had some nervous nelly’s who’ve come out of their shell and they’re the sweetest most loving cats! And of course the best part of my day would be seeing them go to their furever homes! There is really nothing more rewarding than seeing the bond between a pet and their human and knowing their going to a warm and loving home. :)

*Anything you want to add??
I’m working on a couple of patterns for animal beds so maybe I’ll have a few new styles in the future! And people can feel free to email me with any questions they might have aswell! :)
