Our Kitties at the shelter said to tell you that they LOVE their kitty slings and being carried around in a warm snugly place is lots of fun!
I designed these slings after one of our volunteers discovered that carrying the kittens and sick and scared cats inside her sweater helped the cats and kittens to bond with people and reduced their fear. That was is the winter and when summer came and it was too hot to wear her sweater I designed a sling for her. I never intended to make more than one but first the other volunteers and staff asked for them and then the new adoptive parents wanted them so we began offering them for sale in the shelter to help support our over 250 cats and kittens.
Now I am making them available to you. 100% of the proceeds will go to Cat Welfare.
Cat Welfare Ohio is a no-kill cat shelter that opened in 1945 designed specifically to help the many stray and abused cats in the Columbus, Ohio area. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that's objective has always been to promote better care and understanding of cats while providing for the physical welfare of homeless cats and kittens. http://www.catwelfareohio.com/
The slings are made of fleece. Fabric patterns vary. Current patterns are displayed in pictures above and correspond to options 1 thru 9 when you are ordering.
Slings are suitable for small dogs up to 10 pounds. If you would like a sling for a dog please request a custom
order for fabrics suitable for dogs.
I ship within 1-2 business days using USPS 1st class shipping whenever possible.
When I find that the shipping charged was higher than necessary I will refund the overage.
Shipping for Pleater Needles US customers
Needles are shipped in a heavy cardboard envelope to prevent bending. While this would seem to increase the shipping cost actually USPS charges the same rate for 1, 2 and 3 oz. 1 oz is the smallest weight I can use.
Based on this I have set a flat shipping rate of $3.00 for up to 80 pleater needles shipped in 1 package within the United States.
Shipping for Pleater Needles International customers
I am happy to ship Internationally but must calculate the shipping. Please request a custom order so I can add the appropriate postage for your country.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Damaged items can always be returned.
Cut fabric can not be returned or cancelled.
Non fabric sales can be canceled but if the shipping label has been printed the shipping cost will not be refunded.
When items are returned the postage will be paid by the buyer. Refund will be for the cost of the item only.
No. Fabric purchases can not be cancelled or returned.
For even yards specify the amount in the quantity field.
For fabric amounts not listed or not a multiple of 1 yard , for example 1 ½ yards, please enter a custom request and I will gladly cut it for you.

This is perfect for carrying one of my foster kittens who needs a little extra comfort. It keeps my hands free for working and doing other things while keeping her close to my chest and heart to sooth her.

Nice product and good delivery, I'm just not sure the sling is actually big enough. You end up carrying the cat much higher than I thought.
