Frequently asked questions
What animals are your products made for?
My items are mostly aimed at rats (I keep rats myself so I started out by making hammocks/beds for my own before Furrykind Creations).
However, they can also be used for other small animals (my items have also been purchased for hamsters, guinea pigs, chinchillas and hedgehogs!).
Please ensure that any item you purchase for your small animal is safe/suitable first.
What are your items made from?
I mostly like to use polar fleece to make my items.
I use multiple layers of fabrics which adds more thickness for extra comfort. I also sew extra stitching which adds more support and durability to the items.
Occassionally I do use other fabrics too such as cotton, polycotton, hessian, linen, etc with fleece add further support & structure (wadding is sewn inside of the shaped bags).
Where do you send your items? And what is the cost of postage?
As of now I just send my items in the UK (online website shop and occassionally at shows).
2nd Class Standard (small parcel) delivery via Royal Mail is £3.20 up to 2kg. Items can be sent 1st Class on request if the cost is covered (price depends on weight).
This is my hobby (small business) and I don't have a team for help, so I don't make a huge amount of items to warrant it. I'm aware that this may dissapoint some in other counties that would like some of my items but it's a decision I made due to the limited amount of items I make at one time.
How do you hang the items in the cage?
All hammocks/beds are made with either D-rings or eyelets attached, depending on the item.
These allow for a clip or link to hook through to hang in the cage from the bars.
Personally I like to use shower curtain rings or baby links.
They don't come as standard with the hammocks/beds but you can purchase them seperate in my shop.
Do you take custom orders?
My custom orders are not permanetely open but I do occasionally open slot spaces for customs (look out for post updates on my social media pages).
I mostly like to make items to have available on my website shop.
I started Furrykind Creations as my therapeutic hobby to help with some personal life struggles and stress, where I could make whatever I fancy when I fancy - then list up on my website. Keeping to this way will help me maintain my own balance.
Can I have/do you sell patterns of your shaped beds and bags so I can make them?
No. My shaped beds and bags are my own creations (I like to think they’re the item that comes to mind first and most when Furrykind Creations is mentioned). I'm proud of my creation and love working on them.
I have taken much of my own time and effort with the original design to get it right. Lots of tweaking. Lots of perfecting. Lots of extra steps and extra pieces. And each new design/animal I come up with is then more time and effort to perfect.
I appreciate if people respect someone elses work and don't attempt to copy.
