My rats loved the first one so much that I had to order another one, it is the one shape that they don't try to nibble through!

The fabric is adorable, and the fleece is super soft. The product is great quality for the price!

About

Alma Rodentia - For the Love of Rodents

The name comes from the latin word 'Alma', which means nuturing or mother, and Rodentia, the family that our domestic pet rodents belong to. My name is Lauren Paul and I'm a long time lover and advocate of the often overlooked pet rodent.

Almost a decade ago I founded North Star Rescue, a California non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and welfare of pet rodents who had nowhere else to go. From a small beginning of a few animals in my small apartment to an organization that helps animals all over California and beyond, my hobby rescue grew into a fantastic group which I have always been proud to work with.

Recently, I moved from California to Missouri and went from handling the day to day operations of my rescue group to helping the organization from afar with supporting technology. My days that were once filled with cleaning cages, medicating sick animals and socializing the shy became quiet and I continually thought of how I could find more ways of supporting my much loved rescue group back in California.

Here came the idea for Alma Rodentia, a place where I would sell hand-made products geared towards small animals and their human companions. Profits from sales on Alma Rodentia help the animals of North Star Rescue, helping to fund the care costs for the rescue animals while they wait to find homes.

While the products here have been made based on my years of experience with pet rats, guinea pigs, mice, hamsters and chinchillas, small animals of many stripes and types will enjoy the products here including sugar gliders, ferrets, hedgehogs and more.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I'm happy to put together custom orders including custom patterns, colors, sizes, etc.

Please keep in mind that when you see a fabric pattern in the store, I generally don't have more on hand since it's been made in to all of the products that you see. I'm happy to re-order a specific print when available but ask that you be prepared to order more than one item in that pattern.

The lead time for custom orders varies depending on the piece and materials used, contact me and I'll gladly give you an estimate.

Care instructions

Hammocks are sent out brand new and are not pre-washed, you may choose to pre-wash your hammocks before putting them in to use with your pets. I recommend using cool or warm water on a gentle cycle with a pet-safe laundry detergent when washing hammocks, and drying on medium to low.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Items are shipped with a tag showing price, dimensions and care instructions, as well as a packing slip with your order details. If you are ordering an item as a gift and want the price tag and packing slip omitted, please shoot me a message before your order ships.

Hammocks typically ship in protective plastic mailers while resin jewelry or other items may ship in bubble mailers or other protective packaging depending on the type of item.

Wholesale availability

Wholesale pricing is available for retail re-salers, and bulk pricing is available to non-profit animal rescues working with small animals. Please contact me at almarodentia@gmail.com for more information.
