Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great summer! For the past month, we've been patterning, cutting out all the fabric and sewing as well as printing shirts and foiling tote bags like crazy! We're now getting to shipping out all your prizes :) Over the past 2 weeks, we have been sending sent out most of the $75 and $25 backers prizes and now we're finishing up the $50 and $150 backer prize packages. Below are some pictures of the process of getting the fabric and making all the prizes! If you want to see more, check out the instagram [ @prettysnake ] and blog http://prettysnake.tumblr.com/

Hi !!! Thanks so much to all the new backers! Today was epic :) I can't believe how fast the time has passed and we're down to the wire and still need to reach the goal of 5000 by midnight tomorrow! I'll be sending about a million emails tonight to make sure every kitty lover has been contacted! If you haven't shared this project with your friends yet, please do and hep spread the word! Here's some more wacky kitty facts!!

Thanks you again!

Love,

Joe

* Tylenol and chocolate are both poisonous to cats.

* In ancient Egypt, killing a cat was a crime punishable by death.

* Declawing a cat is equal to cutting off your finger at the knuckle. :(

* In the Middle Ages, during the Festival of Saint John, cats were burned alive in town squares.

* Using its biological clock, the angle of the sun, and the Earth's magnetic field, a cat can find where its home if it is lost. A cat taken far from its home can return to it, but if a cat's owners move far from its home, the cat can't find them.

* Cats can be taught to use a toilet, come, sit, beg, eat with their paws, heel, jump through a hoop, play a piano, play dead, roll over, open a door, hide food in boxes, shake, and fetch.

* A large majority of white cats with blue eyes are deaf. White cats with only one blue eye are deaf only in the ear closest to the blue eye. (I had a cat named George who had one blue eye and one yellow eye, but fortunately, he was not deaf)

* Lincoln loved cats and had 4 of them while he lived in the White House.

* Napoleon was terrified of cats.

* Recent studies show that cats can see red, green, and blue.

* A cat can jump 5 times as high as it is tall!

* 37% of homes now have at least one cat

* Common plants that are poisonous to cats include: Iris, English Ivy, Philodendron, and Mistletoe!!

We're doing great so far! THANK YOU!

Hi Backers and Visitors! WOW! This project has received a great response so far, and we're well on our way to reaching our goal! Thank you so much to all the backers thus far for jumping in and being true trendsetters with an unapologetic love for crazy kitty fashion! I'm happy to report that our Kickstarter has already been featured on a couple fashion blogs!

I've received a bunch of fabric samples from multiple textile printers and am so excited to work with a company in the US. They create super high quality printing on the most amazing legging fabric. It's going to be great to work with them!

We've raised 1/5 of our goal and have a ways to go, so, I'm hopeful you can help spread the word about this project to your friends! Wouldn't it be so cool if you could rock your Kitty Garden Party leggings with a friend ??? 

Here's a fun fact: Every Pretty Snake item is finished with a woven tag with a hand applied crystal on it! Its my favorite crystal: transparent xilion rose cut with the aurora borealis finish :) See pic below.

THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!
