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

Just did some dish shopping so look for MORE NEW Upcycled Cat Dishes to be added soon! Some were recently added and are going pretty quickly--remember they're one of a kind--no two will rarely if ever, be identical, unless I find the matching set that I do occasionally.

I am looking into adding multi-colored jingle bells as an option. I will still have the gold and silver but will add the color option soon.

***Inflation is hitting everyone hard, but I am trying hard to hang on to my prices and not raise anything right now. Even though shipping has gone up, fabric and supplies have gone up, Etsy is raising their seller fees, everything is going up--except Luna Bugs Designs prices--we are staying put as long as we can make sure Etsy gets their part, you, the customers, get a good price, and Luna Bugs Designs is fair to ourselves.***

Look for new *fur* options 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

*Note: 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.

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 5-8 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 3/8 in wide collar on the regular kitten size--choose the kitten options for the collar and the ex sm kitten buckle which will only be in black--that way I will know to make the collar narrower**
**At this time, these ex small buckles are only in black. If and when they get different colors in--I will definitely add them! They 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. I am just now adding these to the MANY listings I have, so if you need one and it doesn't show up yet, contact me!***

Luna Bugs Designs has added Small Dog/Puppy Collars in 3 sizes for the Littles--Small, Ex Small and Mini and they have the same options as the cat collars--gold or silver and colored buckles.

LUNA BUGS DESIGNS Supports Animal Rescue. Luna is a rescue as are her two 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!
***I wish ETSY had a HEART icon on the reviews section, so I could show each one of you how much I appreciate your business and wonderful comments. Thank you all so much!***

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.

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.
