I have been creating individual little beasties for years and have a love of all things odd.
I hand sew all my creations rather than use a sewing machine as i don't think i could honestly call them 'hand made' otherwise...and there is nothing nicer than holding something that has been lovingly slaved over for hours rather than churned out in a matter of minutes is there? The thousands of tiny stitches that go into each and every Shadow Cat piece are like little markers of time and ensure that my little beasties are truly individual.

Due to materials and methods used, all Shadow Cat Little People, Animalia and other soft sculptures are unsuitable for young children, plus...they have a tendency to bite!
All creations are produced in a pet and smoke free environment.

If in doubt about anything featured here or in my shop please don't hesitate to convo me - i am always happy to answer any questions you may have.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
You may return your purchase within 7 days of receipt for a full refund less postage costs if the item is returned to me in the same condition as when it left my studio & you notify me of your intention of returning the item within 24 hours of your receiving it. Refunds will only be given after the item has been returned and recieved by me. Please ensure you have proof of postage for the returned item.

If you are unhappy with your item please convo me as soon as possible with full details of why you would like to return your item and before leaving neg feedback. I will always do my utmost to ensure that all my customers are happy with their purchases.

I do not offer refunds for shipping errors ie. getting lost or damaged in the mail.
It is the buyers responsibility to request insurance on packages. If they wish them to be protected against damage and/or loss the customer must pay any of the extra costs incurred for this protection. The customer will then only be refunded when i have been reimbursed by the postal service company for the insured value.

I always obtain proof of postage for all my items whether they be shipped within the UK or to overseas destinations - i am always happy to send buyers a photocopy of the proof of posting document if the buyer requests it.

Personalised/Custom Orders
There is a No Return policy for items that have been custom made/personalised to a specific individual buyer's requirements.

*I have never had a package go missing or suffer damage yet so please do not think that this is likely to happen to your purchase but if you are worried about this then convo me at the time of purchase and i shall do my best to advise you as to whether insurance is advisable.
Paypal payments only please.

All payments to be recieved within 3 days of adding the item to your shopping cart and hitting the 'Buy' button. Please be sure to complete your transaction - thank you.

Any transaction/item that is not completed/paid for within the 3 day period with no contact from the buyer will be cancelled and the appropriate feedback will be left.
Please convo me if you cannot pay within the 3 day period, a time extension may be possible.

UK Buyers
All prices are in US dollars and the current exchange rate is roughly 2USD to 1UKP. When paying by Paypal your payment will be automatically converted from UKP to USD, so no need to worry about making the conversions yourself.
Overseas Delivery:
please allow 2-3 weeks for your purchase to arrive if you live in the US/Canada

All orders will be shipped within 48 hours of payment being cleared through my Paypal account except when an item is made to order, when the buyer will be advised by me of shipping times for these special orders.

All items shipped within the UK will be sent 1st Class Mail - Overseas shipping methods will be depend on value/size/wieght of package but will not be tracked or insured unless the buyer requests these optional services and pays any extra costs incurred. Overseas buyers are responsible for all and any customs charges they may incur.

I use all new packaging materials when shipping items and each and every item is well protected during transit to their new home so the shipping costs also include my packaging expenses.
