About

Time spent with cats is never wasted

I still remember those dark winter evenings, when in my childhood mother and sister sat down in the warm kitchen to knit socks and mittens, while father was making the yarn from just washed and dried wool, which we got from my grandfather. Those long conversations, jokes, the smell of wool and that sound of needles still bring me that peace, where the time stops... As I grew bigger, so did my first tryings to knit, later - to crochet. Starting from simple things like scarfs, eventually I started to knit also socks and mittens, crochet various serviettes and decorations. And even when I left my parent's home and went to college, crafts always stayed as one of my biggest passions and most comfortable way to both relax and express myself.

But the idea of making cat clothes didn't come to me until the mid 2013. I was always a cat person and often appreciated their company more than people's. So you can imagine, how hard it was for me to study and not be able to own a cat. But in 2013 I saw the most adorable sphynx kittens and my heart melted. At that very moment I knew, that no matter what, I want them. And so everything worked out just perfectly, and two adorable sisters came to live to my home and my heart.

And here comes the crafty part of it. Because Finland is quite famous for it's cold weather, it was obvious, that those naked babies will need clothes. I knew, how to knit and didn't lack ideas, so decided to try to make everything myself. I paid especially careful attention, that all the details wouldn't be dangerous for cats (something, that they couldn't swallow, choke, etc.) as well as the sweater itself would be comfortable and warm. And with constant experimenting many beautiful comfy sweaters were born and kept my kitties warm from autumn to spring.

Creating is like a game to me. A game, which I enjoy a lot, because I am the one, who makes the rules. By saying that I mean, that no matter what kind of a wild idea I'd come up with, I can do it. I never look at it as if it was my job to make these sweaters to all the beautiful kitties. It's my hobby, which I enjoy to the fullest. That's why the sweaters I make can be very different from each others, but they all meet simple and at the same time very important criteria: safety, comfortability, warmth, uniqueness and versatility. And by saying versatility, I don't mean only the appearance of the sweaters. Sometimes they can play not only the important part of providing warmth or sun protection for your kitty, but also preventing the cat from licking/scratching the wounds on the belly, back, neck, etc.

I believe that as much as it is important for us to wear something, that we like and feel comfortable in, it is also very important to give the same criteria for our furry or naked friends.

Frequently asked questions
How do I know which size will fit the best for my pet?

There's a size chart in every listing that has the neck & chest measurements of all the sizes offered in my shop. Please always measure your pet before placing an order to avoid the wrong fit. Even though there's a size chart in every listing (usually it's the 2nd picture), sometimes it might be hard to choose the correct size due to every pet coming in different shapes just like us humans. If you took a look at the size chart, but are still not sure about the size, feel free to message me over here on Etsy! I can always help you to decide on the correct size based on the weight/measurements and will also gladly make a custom size sweater for your pet.

I like a certain style sweater in your shop, but don't see the color I like. Can you make it in different color?

Absolutely! As much as I love making sweaters that are staples in my shop, I thoroughly enjoy doing something new! If you have any ideas, suggestions or would like to make some adjustments and personalize your order, simply message me and we will create an amazing custom clothing for your precious pet.

I placed an order, but noticed that the shipping address is wrong. What should I do now? / Can you ship the item to a different location than my Etsy address?

If you noticed that the shipping address is wrong, please contact me immediately and provide me with the correct shipping address. If you didn't notice it or noticed too late, I cannot be held responsible for lost packages as it is customer's responsibility to provide me with the correct address. For this reason please always check the address when checking out! If the item you buy is a gift and you want it to be shipped straight to the gift recipient, please write the address you want the package to be sent to in the Note to seller when checking out, send me a message over here on Etsy or write an email: purring.pyjamas(at)gmail.com. Thank you!

I saw a sweater in your shop that I like, but it has sleeves and my cat feels the most comfortable wearing sleeveless shirts/sweaters. Can it be made sleeveless?

Absolutely! Every single sweater in my shop that is made to order (it says in the listing's description whether it's made to order or is already finished product) can be customized the way you want it. Even though the sleeves that I make are adjusted specifically for cat's anatomy (you might've noticed my cat sweaters aren't just tiny copies of human clothes) I understand that sometimes cats love to have their legs uncovered. Or maybe it's the look that you prefer? Then go for it! When checking out, simply write to a "Note to Seller" that you'd like the sweater to be sleeveless.

I like a sweater in your shop, but at the moment I don't have opportunity to buy it. Can you keep it for me until I am able to purchase it?

Yes, of course! If you want a sweater, but can't purchase it immediately, simply send me a message over here on Etsy or email me at purring.pyjamas(at)gmail.com and tell me which sweater you'd like to book. I can keep the sweater in stock for you for up to 7 days.

I ordered a sweater, but it's too big/too small for my cat. What should I do now?

If you accidentally ordered the wrong size item, no worries - simply message me over here on Etsy or email me at purring.pyjamas(at)gmail.com and we will find the best solution! You can always exchange the items for bigger/smaller size or send them back and get a refund. (Custom made orders are non-refundable as I work with you individually on the sizing and style for the best fit prior to making and sending the item.)

I received an item, but do not like it./I've been waiting for over 30 days and the item still hasn't reached me. What should I do now?

If for some reason the item doesn't meet your expectations or you haven't received the item you ordered, always message me first before leaving a review. I am always willing to work on the best solution that would be good for both of us.

Are your clothes meant only for cats, or can they be worn by dogs as well?

My sweaters can be worn by both dogs and cats. :) If your dog is a certain size/breed, simply message me, and we will create a custom sweater for your precious pet. I made quite a few custom dog sweaters in the past, and I always love taking onto new projects, so if you would like a warm knitted sweater for your pup, don't hesitate to contact me! :)

Can I leave my pet alone while he/she is wearing your pet clothes?

Generally, you should not leave your pet unattended while he/she is wearing any kind of clothes, collars and other accessories. While my sweaters are made to be as safe as possible, things still may happen as pets are not humans and don't know what they should/shouldn't do while wearing something. So, in any case you should not leave your pets completely alone for longer periods of time while they are wearing pet accessories & clothes.

What happens to the sweaters that get sent back?

If the sweater gets sent back, it goes straight to the sweater heaven - it is washed and then remade into the yarn again, which I use either for my gardening or trying out new patterns. Nothing gets resent to someone else due to hygienic reasons, but nothing gets wasted either! :)
