Chief Pet Comfort Specialists
JaFiMa was created because we adopted three (yes 3!) kittens – sisters and litter mates.. We became frustrated with the range of pet products available in the chains and even in the “natural” pet stores. We just weren’t able to find what we wanted for the girls.
The actual idea for the company came from my experience shopping for a bed for the kitties – I remember it vividly. I looked at most of the chains and the local stores and wanted something soft and cozy for them to sleep it. Everything (and I do mean everything) was petroleum based. Cozy, fuzzy looking beds were made of nylon, polyester fleece and filled with foam. Now, I have a very sensitive nose, and my sniffer can’t hold a candle to that or a dog or cat, but these stank! I mean that throat burning, nasty chemical smell. Not exactly what I was looking for. Yes, there were then, and are more so now, soft pet beds out there made from recycled bottles and this is better, but since they will be chewing on their beds – not happy about it, just a fact – do you really want your pet to eat shredded plastic bottles – even recycled ones? I didn’t think so. I know we don’t want our girls eating plastic so we decided to create a better option.
And JaFiMa was born…
Now, please don’t think that we are getting holier than thou here on you; we live – in a twenty-year old home in the city that was certainly not built as green as it could have been – not a bubble. And we are not suggesting that you or your pets live in a bubble. But since you are going to be investing in beds, furniture and the like for your pets anyway, wouldn’t it be better if the ones you brought into your home were better for you and your pets to start off with? After all, isn’t that why you brought them into your home to begin with? To give them a better life and to make yours better by them being in your life? So why not take it one step further and make your home and theirs healthier? That is what we created for our lives and now we want to share it with you.
