The acknowledgement of your order page will give you our mailing address and your total, including shipping fees.
Check-Out Status
As you go through check-out, you will see a status message telling you which stage (1-4) you are on, so you can quickly check your progress through this process.
You can shop by browsing our Site Map that lists all our product categories, and the products in each category. If you see something you would like or if you want to see a detailed description and a photo of the toy or treat, you can click on the product name and it will take you right to the item in our store.
Or you can enter our store directly by clicking on Shop or Store Front. Once you have entered our store, you may — browse our store by clicking on any of the categories — search our store by putting in a brand name or descriptive words (i.e.”Old West” or “feather teasers”) — or view our entire product list.
If you wish to save time, you may set up an account, an option once you have entered the store. Your information is kept private & secure, never sold or shared! Once your account is set up, your information is stored as a cookie (Not one that allows us to track where you have been or where you are going, just one that recognizes you) and you will not have to type in your name and address etc. each time you shop.
Or, you may shop without setting up an account. It is your choice.
Shopping Tip!
If you wish to buy more than one of an item, the easiest and fastest way is to click on the product to go to it’s product description. You will see a box where you can adjust the quantity of that item you wish to buy up from 1 to what ever you wish.
Shipping/Account features
You can now store, as part of your customer account, multiple shipping and billing addresses and choose from a drop-down menu of those addresses, during Check-out. You can choose “Advanced Shipping Options” during Checkout to choose multiple shipping addresses for each order, choosing for example to send a Gift Basket to one friend, and to have Kitty Kaviar shipped to yourself. You also have the option to choose a different shipping method for each address being shipped to
**NOTE:If your order qualifies for free shipping and you are choosing multiple shipping addresses for that order, you will only receive free shipping to those addresses where the products (exception: all gift baskets are shipped free) total $50.
For example: You order a Plain Brown Box Dozen of Kitty Kaviar and other items totaling $60 to be shipped to your home address, and a second Plain Brown Box Dozen (under $40) to be shipped to a friend. The products totalling $60 will be shipped free, because the products going to the second ship to address total $40, you will be given shipping options (either parcel post or priority mail).
Mini-Basket
While shopping, you will notice a “mini-basket” along the left hand side of your screen. It shows the contents of your basket – listing the name of each item you’ve added to your basket, along with the quantity. It automatically updates as you add or remove items. There is also a “Recently Viewed Items” button that you can click on to see all the items you’ve viewed while browsing or shopping. When you are ready to check-out, you can just click on the “check-out button” on your mini-basket, or use the “check-out” button on the menu bar at the top of your screen as usual.

If you wish to be notifed when an “Out of Stock” product is back in stock, just click on the “Wait List” link – located on the product’s description page. You will receive an email notifying you when the product is back in stock.
Coupon Options
Each product has a place for you to type in a promotional code – to see if a product has a current promotion, click on the name of the item (which will be highlighted as a clickable link) to go to the product description page for that item. This is for special limited sales, and surprise unadvertised sales! We also have sales or specials which may require a coupon code to be used at checkout time for the discount to be applied and your sub-total adjusted. See our What’s New page for each months current sale or special! **Be sure to scroll down if the checkout page does not completely show on your screen during checkout, so you will not miss the prompt for the coupon code.
Tell A Friend!
If you have a friend you think would enjoy our site and our toys and treats, use the “Tell A Friend” link, located above your Mini-Basket. Clicking on this button will bring up a screen allowing you to put in your email address and name (so your friend will know who has referred our site to them), and you can list up to 3 friends email addresses, click “send”, and they will receive an email with a clickable link to the page you were on.
