Announcement    "IN A PERFECT WORLD, EVERY CAT WOULD HAVE A HOME AND EVERY HOME WOULD HAVE A CAT..."
***LUNA BUGS NEWS***

Several new collars have been added or will be soon! There is a line of fabrics from Australia that are printed from original Aborigine artwork--the artists are paid a fair price for their work to be used on the fabrics. They have beautiful colors and designs and make great looking, unique collars. Also added is a new Southwestern--the Pueblo Patchwork, Gracie's Pink Camo, Mazie's Starry Night and a couple of new colorful Bee Fabrics.

I wanted to let you know that you are welcome to request any color buckle I have available on any collar, even if it's not listed. I try to choose the best colors that might go with a particular collar, due to space when making the drop down menu--and I know it's still long in spite of that :) But if a buckle color is not listed and you would like it, just leave me a note at checkout. I'd be glad to put it on.

NEW Candy Colored Bells in two sizes--Tiny 10 mm (approx 1/3 in) for kittens and Reg 12mm (approx 1/2 in) for cats.
NOTE: I have discovered since I got the enamel bells in that they do not really jingle much--but they are cute and add a cute pop of color**

These are limited for now, but if they do well, as with the new buckle colors, I will add more. These cost me a little more, so they will be a $1.00 to add to any collar.

NEW BUCKLE COLORS! Just added a whole lot of new color choices for buckles. Not available on all collars, but if you see a color you'd like and it's not listed, just message me when you order. I am trying these out--they all may not stay but it will be hard to decide--so many colors to choose from--I know I make it difficult--but Luna Bugs is all about designing your collar your way! :)

UPDATE: Wow! Almost all the new upcycled dishes I recently added, have sold--I will be looking for new ones to make soon and let you know when they're ready!!!***

EXTRA SMALL KITTEN COLLARS! Even though an 8 week old to 3 or4 month old kitten is tiny, they still need identification! Plus it gets them used to wearing collars early on and they look so cute too :)

These collars are 3/8 in wide--a little narrower than the 1/2 in cat and regular kitten collars. And they have a smaller, easier to break open buckle. The weight needed to break open a breakaway buckle takes more strength than tiny kittens possess, so these new smaller easier to breakaway are perfect for the smaller kittens. And there is also less bulk around their necks with a smaller buckle and a narrower collar. These will adjust from approximately 5-7 in If your kitten's neck measures 7 in, go to the regular kitten collar since there wouldn't be any grow room--these are for tiny kittens***.
Note** If you would like the narrower collar on the regular kitten size--choose the regular kitten options for the collar and add the ex sm kitten buckle which will only be in black--and make a note for me when you check out**
**At this time, these ex small buckles are only in black. If and when they get different colors in--I will definitely add them!
The ex small kitten collars come in all the same fabrics as the cat and regular kitten collars, though since they are so tiny, the prints on some may not do as well as others--though the colors in the fabric will still be very pretty.

NEW TOUGH CANVAS CATNIP TOYS ( Look for new prints soon)

JUMBO KATNIP KITTY KICKERS and SCRAPPY SNAKES now have a tougher option. Made from tough canvas for the tough kitties that rip into the lighter weight cotton! The cotton fabric ones are still available--but for the kitties that think they are jungle cats and rip their toys apart--the canvas ones are a good choice. We won't name names--you all know who they are :)

New *fur* options are coming soon for the Fur Cat Napper Mats. And they are now in a little larger size--17 x 20. These will come later on in the year. They will be a great gift for your purr-babies at Christmas. You can always custom order any time, but the pre-made ones will be available in a couple of months.

SOME QUESTIONS CAT OWNERS ASK:

Should I put a collar on my indoor cat?
Even indoor-only cats should wear collars, because if your cat does get out, a well-meaning person may think your cat is a stray and take her to an animal shelter. With an ID collar, your cat has a better chance of safely and quickly getting back home

Do bells on collars damage cats hearing?
Effectiveness aside, many pet parents worry that a bell will hurt their cat's ears. According to Veterinary PhD student Rachel Malakani, a collar bell will produce sound at about 50-60 dB, but studies have shown cats to be unaffected by sounds under 80 dB

****I would like to add that the bells I use are very quiet. But in the event your cat gets outside or stuck/locked somewhere, you could probably hear the soft jingle of the bell to help locate them. And if they happen to get out and go after birds and wildlife, it would give them a fighting chance to get away from the cat.
With that said, you will always have the option of bell or no bell on any collar you buy. And should you get a bell and not like it, it can easily be removed from the split ring on the collar.

Luna Bugs Designs has added Small Dog/Puppy Collars in 3 sizes for the Littles--Small and Ex Small and they have the same options as the cat collars--gold or silver and colored buckles. Although the dog collars are listed under the cat collars--they DO NOT have breakaway buckles--they have regular dog collar buckles. The buckle colors are limited at this time. If these become popular, I will order larger quantities****

LUNA BUGS DESIGNS Supports Animal Rescue. Luna is a rescue as are her two cat brothers, Indy and Catman and her dog sister, Roxy. Every purchase helps animal rescue. I support a local rescue in Suffolk, VA called Symbiotic Inc.org
Every cat or kitten that is adopted from them goes home with a Luna Bugs Designs collar free of charge. I also donate items for their fundraisers. Your purchases help me to help them!

WHAT MAKES LUNA BUGS DESIGNS COLLARS SPECIAL? *

All Luna Bugs Designs collars are *only* made with safety breakaway buckles. They may look like a regular buckle, but these are higher quality than most breakaway buckles and require a bit more tug to break apart. Not as easy to get lost but will definitely break apart in the event of an emergency.
You may also notice many cat collars are made from heavy nylon or with a heavy bonding material much like what is used on dog collars to give them shape and strength. And many cats dislike wearing collars because of this. It makes them bulkier and heavy. My collars are very lightweight on purpose. This is to keep them from irritating and bothering your cat. And also, to keep them from losing fur around their necks from the friction of a heavier collar. My collars are made from 100% cotton fabric and a lightweight fusion to give it stability and shape and most cats don't even notice they're there. We, as humans may like the weight of a heavier collar in our hands, but cats are not so thrilled with that extra weight around their necks.

I take a lot of pride in being an honest seller. The customer rules as far as I'm concerned--If you're not happy, I'm not happy! Let's fix it!
I am not only a seller, but I am also a buyer, and I know what good customer service means. I treat my customers as I would like to be treated. Should there ever be a problem or any questions, I would greatly appreciate your reaching out to me. I will do whatever I can do to make it right.

MORE INFO:
My Personal GUARANTEE! I stand by all my cat collars with a 6 month guarantee against workmanship. Should an issue with workmanship arise within 6 months of purchase, I will replace with a new collar. Workmanship would be if something comes apart or the buckle breaks. It does not include loss, normal wear or damage done by the pet.

SHIPPING: I always combine shipping of more than one item whenever possible and issue a refund right away after you check out.
***I DO NOT make extra money by gouging the shipping costs.** I even pay out of pocket for the difference sometimes, if I err on the side of low.
I also upcycle and recycle packing materials whenever I can, to offset waste.

About LunaBugsDesigns

How Luna Bugs Designs was born

I have always been a cat lover and I have always put collars on all my cats. I found myself buying LOTS of collars and spending a lot of money for not so great products. They would get fuzzy or fall apart. I was just not impressed. I decided one day, not long ago, to begin making my own collars. After a few hit or misses, I finally got them where I wanted them to be and Luna Bugs Designs was born. I named the shop after one of my rescue cats, Luna. She had a tough start in life, coming into the shelter with her mom at 3 days of age. She spent the first 4 months of her life in the shelter until we met and she came home with me. She is the best kitty model for my creations and loves showing how to play with the toys. My collars are soft and lightweight unlike some of the heavier nylon collars that aggravate some cats and irritate skin. My collars are also riveted, not sewn at connection points. I offer a large selection of 100% cotton fabric and nickel plated hardware. The buckles come in many complimentary colors to the fabric and you have your choice of color.

    Luna--the namesake of the company--has been my assistant from day one of opening. She is a great helper and does such duties as sitting on fabric I try to cut. Sits in front of the sewing machine, steals catnip. I don't know what I'd without her.
