It was not without drama that our products arrived at the QVC distribution center. We missed a crucial step that we thought the freight company would do--scheduling the delivery. Since we did not schedule delivery in the appropriate time-frame, our products were delivered late and did not arrive in the 5 day window required.
Once they arrived, albeit late, they were put through another quality assurance test. Guess what. We failed--kind of. The instructions that were approved were not the instructions in the box. This ended up being a miscommunication, but we did not know. The instructions had to go through another quality assurance review. The products arrived in July and we did not find out that we passed until the planets aligned, err until the solar eclipse on August 21st. It was a nerve-racking month for us. We went through a lot of emotions. If we failed we would have to pay for the freight to be returned and get fined from QVC, more importantly an opportunity would be lost.
But we did pass and I was able to see WindowKitty® on QVC.com, next to other awesome products!! Here it is below from QVC.com. We are very excited and hope that it is successful! We hope you go check it out, they have neat payment options that we cannot offer.
Brian and I will have a booth at the upcoming Pet Adoption Extravaganza hosted by Rescue Magazine in Belton, TX on September 16. We happened upon the event in Facebook and thought it would be a great opportunity, plus we can check out the pets up for adoption. If you are local we hope to see you there! We will also have our new beds that we made for WindowKitty®, cat ear headbands and toys.
As mentioned above, feedback we received from Kickstarter when we tried crowdfunding was that WindowKitty® should have a fluffy, comfy bed. We tried to find one but they are very expensive and not the dimensions of our unique, one-of-a-kind window cat bed. So what do we do? We started making them. I really like them too. You can even place them anywhere and our cats love them. Its fun making them. Brian and I cut the material together and then I pin, he sews, and I stuff, then he sews a tough border! Here are some pictures.
