MeowWow's Shop Announcement

Welcome! Here you'll find fun items for cats, with homegrown catnip, and sometimes other items (for us humans) made with cat fabric.

My other shop (BarkRiverBoutique) has children's aprons (lined and reversible), full adult aprons, hot/cold rice packs for kids and adults, sachets filled with my own homemade potpourri, and other handmade items. If you're interested in those, please visit:

My catnip mats and some of the larger toys are refillable. Refilling instructions are included. Fabrics are very gently washed before use, to remove any excess dyes which can cause allergy problems for some kitties.

We grow and dry our own catnip, so it's always fresh and fragrant. And we hand pick only the best leaves and the tender buds that cats find so delectable. You'll never find any other substances added to our catnip. . So that you will receive the freshest catnip possible, I wait until my items are sold before filling them with catnip and/or filling any accompanying catnip packets. Then they are packaged to keep the catnip scent fresh and fragrant.

If your cat DOESN'T enjoy catnip, I'll be happy to make a cozy, catnip-free mat or toy for your kitty.

My catnip items usually have two layers of polyfil quilt batting inside. The batting layers are stitched tightly to the fabric around the edges. Why? Because not only does it make them much softer and more huggable, but it keeps the catnip inside from becoming "clumpy" after kitties have played with the toy or mat for an extended period of time. And poly batting is used because my vet told me that some cats like to chew cotton batting and occasionally some will ingest it (not as safe).

Shipping: I'll gladly combine items for multiple orders. Please contact (convo) me and I'll recalculate the actual shipping amount for you . OR, if you prefer, you can just go ahead and pay through etsy checkout if you're ordering multiple items, because I will always send you a shipping refund inside your package, to the nearest dollar, if the shipping amount you paid at etsy checkout is more than it should be.

I get delivery confirmation on each order in the U.S. so that I have a way of tracking what's been shipped. (This doesn't apply to books.) Insurance is extra, if you'd like it, especially for orders totalling over $50.00. If you would like insurance on any of your purchases, please contact me before making payment for your items, so you'll have an accurate total.

International shipping: Please contact me first before purchasing if you live outside the United States,, since customs laws in some countries do not allow sellers to send handsewn items. And that way, I can tell you what your shipping cost would be ahead of time. Any additional fees charged by your country's customs are your responsibility . I usually ship by first class international, because it's much less expensive for the buyer. Unfortunately, there is no insurance or tracking, though.

Custom orders: I have well over 50 different cat fabrics on hand. If you'd like a catnip blanket, carrier pad, or a play mat custom-made and listed for you in a certain fabric and/or size, please feel free to fill out an etsy custom order.
