About

Gabby & Roxy's EmPURRium (The EmPURRium) was born in my one bedroom apartment in January 2010 when I started using some fleece scraps to make catnip toys. In March of 2010 I used my measly tax money (only about $200) to buy the materials for collar making. I love to spoil my cats and I could never find cute collars in pet stores for cats.

I have 3 cats; Gabby my tabby is 10.5yr, Roxy is all black and will be 5 in May and my tortie kitten Star who will be 6months old in April. I also have a 3 year old brindle boxer mix named Diesel whom my husband had when we met.

I live in Springfield, Ohio and I was born in Canton, Ohio. After going to Miami University in Oxford, Ohio I met my husband, Dereck. We have an adorable baby boy named Dominic who will be a year old on June 15th.

My collars are all…

My collars are all made with nylon or polypropylene webbing and then the ribbon is sewn on. I use top quality buckles as well to finish off the collars. Within the last few months I got colored buckles for my cat collars and they have really added a special touch to them.

I hand sew every item by myself, mainly at night after work once my baby has gone to bed. Sometimes it's hard to find time to get orders out, but I love doing this. My main goal is that in 5 years I will be able to live off of The EmPURRium and be able to quit my full time job.

The EmPURRium is based out of my bedroom on my tiny desk and in a few plastic storage containers. I'd love to have a studio some day just for creating collars and toys.

I love making collars and I'm always on the hunt for new ribbons, as I write this I have about 25 new partially made collars sitting on my desk, not courting about 25 more ribbons I have waiting to be made into collars. I love the variety I have in my shop and I try to have a little bit of something for everyone.

I am always taking custom requests - I LOVE them! Last Christmas I had a request to make 6 cat collars in different and specific colors, a month later I got the cutest picture of the collars sticking out of stockings that matched the colors.

In addition to collars and leashes I also make catnip mats, catnip toys, and recycled t-shirt tug toys. I'm currently getting ready to start making martingale collars and harnesses for dogs. I also have a few ideas for new cat toys.
