Some questions you might have:
How much will they be?
Right now, I’m working out the most cost effective way to produce these so I don’t have an answer yet. I am aiming for $15-$20.
Where will the money go?
We are hoping that at least half of your purchase will go towards donations to various cat shelters. We also have to pay for the material, sewing machines, stuffing, website, etc. But our goal is to give as much to kitties as we can.
We would like to donate to many shelters and organizations. There are wonderful people who pull cats out from shelters literally hours before they are put down. Individuals can pledge money to any shelter that pulls a death row cat.
To see this in action: https://www.facebook.com/PetsOnDeathRow CAUTION: THIS PAGE IS EXTREMELY UPSETTING, CLICK AT YOUR OWN RISK. Newborn kittens are put to sleep as well. We would like to pledge money to save these cats lives.
There are also many shelters that are very open to accommodating less-adoptable cats, such as ones that create separate rooms for ones that are infected with FIV. There are also shelters that take care of special/different cats instead of putting them down. We would like to help these shelters financially and encourage other shelters to do the same.
What is a less-adoptable cat?
Take a look at this comic
Less-adoptable mean less likely to be adopted. Physical defect, neurological disorder, elderly, chronic illness, special diet, shy, mean, or black (yes even black cats) are not likely to be chosen to go home with a family.
Will you add more cat designs?
What happens after Kickstarter?
Our first goal is to create awareness for this project! Kickstarter and social media will hopefully get some people hyped! Our eventual goal is to have an online store with new designs added frequently. We will also add other items as well!
When will I know more about this?

Can I help?
Right now it would be awesome if you helped spread the word! We would like to take guest artists to design new kitties, but not at this time!
