As many of you know, we became grandparents in January, and when our wee grand-daughter's mum returns to work in September, I will be sharing looking after our grand-daughter with her other grandmother. In addition to that, this month, my mum and her husband have moved back to the UK, and as she is not in the best of health, I will also be helping them out.
All of this means less time to sew, and consequently waiting times for custom orders would inevitably rise to what I feel would become an unacceptable length of time for my lovely customers.
For this reason, I have taken the decision that the only items that will be available for custom order from 1st August 2019 will be cage liners and ramp carpets.
Now that I have moved The Sweatshop into a larger room in the house, I have more storage space, so I will be making lots of pre-made items including both individual items and matching sets which I will be adding these to the website (please bear with me whilst I finish the custom orders that were placed in July. There will be lots more pre-made items made once these are all finished). These will be split into two sections on the website - those available for immediate dispatch, and those available for dispatch within three days ( the latter will be items I have cut out, but not quite finished, so may actually be available for dispatch the same day)
If an item is out of stock on the website, feel free to contact me and I can let you know if and when that item will be back in stock.
POSTAGE AND PAYMENTS
As always, pre-made items paid for before 3pm will be posted the same day Monday to Friday. Items ordered on Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holidays will be posted the next working day.
Any items not paid for within 24 hours will be returned to the shop. This is to stop items being put "on hold" which is not fair on other customers. Obviously if you have any problems with payments, (for instance your online banking being down) please email me at the time.
CUSTOM ORDERING OF CAGE LINERS
AND RAMP CARPETS
Due to the huge range in cage sizes, you will still be able to custom order cage liners and ramp carpets after the 1st August, so as before, if your cage liner size is not on the website already, or to get a quote for a ramp carpet, just email me with the length and width that you require, and I will give you a no-obligation quote. I will then add your size to the website if you'd like to place an order.
Thank you very much for your custom so far, and wish me luck with the babysitting duties - it's a very long time since I've had a wee person to look after!
If you have any queries at all, do please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

ABOUT SNOOZIE'S COZIES
Welcome to Snoozie's Cozies. I make a range of fleece bedding and cage accessories for guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, hedgehogs and other small pets. Named after one of my wee Russian Dwarf hamsters Snoozie, Snoozie's Cozies started as a bit of an accidental business back in 2012. I owned a small animal boarding business at the time and also fostered poorly guinea pigs for my local guinea pig rescue. Once they recovered, they were supposed to go off to their new homes - though I ended up keeping most of them!! One piggy (Phoenix) was extremely unwell when he arrived and I needed something for him to snuggle up in, so I made my first Snoozie Cozie. Boarding customers were following Phoenix' story on Facebook, and saw him in his cozie and asked me to make them for their pigs too. Soon their friends were asking for them, and so Snoozie's Cozies was born. I now send my cozies all over the world. And all because of wee Phoenix - who lived out the rest of his life with me (of course!)
I currently have seven pigs who all live togther in the house with us, and have had 23 in total ( so far!) I've done a rodentology course with the Cambridge Cavy Trust, and I'm very keen on guinea pig welfare, so I will not make anything that will harm them (which is why I won't make waterproof cage liners for instance)
The piggy in the Snoozie's Cozies logo is Hamish, who was owned by a friend of mine. He was three days old at the time and is modelling a Hamster Cozie
I do everything myself, so you may have to wait for your order, but this ensures that all items are made to the same high standard.
