Happy cats built this shop
I spent a number of years in the U.S. Army as a bandsman (bands-woman? bands-person? ugh!) I liked working with soldiers, but the work itself was often unsatisfying and frustrating -- for me the job was a paycheck, not a passion.
My last year in the Army, I made a couple of toys for my cats. Even though the toys were a bit crude-looking, the cats loved them. It made me happy to create something with my own two hands that resulted in such joy for my kitties. So I made some more, and set up a shop here on Etsy in the hope that other folks' kitties would like them as well.
I've learned a lot since I started in 2011 -- I've made dozens of toys (some designs better than others). I closed up shop for a while to earn my bachelors degree (thanks, Austin Peay!)
When I came back I made some upgrades: stained oak handles, better quality feathers and added some one-of-a-kind toys. Now I'm working at my dream job -- making beautiful things that cats love and that (hopefully) help people be happy too.

Frequently asked questions
If your cat won't play with a toy, let me know and I will refund your money--you don't have to mail the toy back or prove anything. I can do this once per customer, for orders under $75 (US dollars.)
Custom and personalized orders
I can make toys in variety of colors (though it may take a little longer.) I can also attach jingly bells if your cat prefers a toy that makes sound.
I am very willing to make wholesale orders. Please contact me for pricing.
Returns and Exchanges
In most cases I will not accept returns or exchanges because I can't resell a toy that may have been chewed on. If there's a problem, please contact me--in many cases I will return your money.
