How do I know you’ve got an understanding about my pet’s appearance?

From the information you provide, I’ll incorporate key elements.  For example, Mike W. told me his golden retriever, Lucy, had beautiful, soft brown eyelashes.  He wanted a mat that would keep water off his new kitchen floor.  Lucy’s likeness has her unique eyelashes and there’s a light blue glaze where the water might be on the mat after she’s finished satisfying her thirst. She’s a female living in an all-male home, so there are soft pink dots and smudges on the big bone in the mat’s...

Can you match the color scheme of my room and cut our mat to a unique size and shape?

Absolutely—on both counts.  It takes more time, but I’ll match materials samples, or we can talk by email or phone to determine colors.  Special shapes are fun and I’ve made triangles, flowers and circles, so the sky is the limit.   I can make the mat go around a corner or notch it to fit around a built-in.  Special shapes and  sample matching are additional charges.  Shipping in North America is...

What if I have more than just one pet?

Lucky you!  If you feed them in the same area I can make a “doublewide” with their names placed under their bowl locations.  If you feed them separately, I’ll coordinate the mats so they look related.  For example, Suki and Sakura are two black cats.  The center portion of their mats are pink and blue to relate to the girl and boy, as requested by their...

What if I need multiple mats?

Wonderful.   I cut and paint each mat individually, so they are priced without a discount unless you have a large order. After four mats we offer a ten per cent discount on additional ones if they are the same, except for names, and if they are all shipped to the same...

What are your mats made of?

We choose previously unused vinyl flooring and coat the underneath surface with two to three coats of artists’ canvas gesso, painting it with water-based paint free of lead and other toxics, and finally apply five coats of acrylic floor sealer to the painted top and sides of the vinyl.  The back of the mat looks like a vinyl floor sample.  They are not designed to be reversible.  Our Pet Food Mats are made in the USA and, unlike many toys from China, our products and paints are completely...

Do you make other types of mats other than pet mats?

You bet!  We love the drawer liners in the kitchen and bathroom because they are so durable and easy to keep clean.  Have you seen those big square trays on top of the new leather cube coffee tables?  I made one to coordinate with new sofa pillows.  Nat’s (Pet) Mats are heat resistant and cold drinks don’t leave a hard-to-remove ring.   Perfect on counter top spaces that support scratchy activities, the attractive, customized mats protect your...

What makes Nat’s Pet Mats a “green business?”

No new vinyl flooring is manufactured to fill our needs; we create Nat’s Pet Food Mats from unused product remainders.  This is called re-purposing, or re-use. and is a great way to be creative and “green” at the same time.  You may know that in terms of effectiveness in reducing waste, not creating it in the first place is the best goal.  We also minimize packaging and avoid plastic whenever possible.  Our mats are shipped in re-usable, recyclable cardboard that was manufactured with recycled paper, so we know we are helping to close the...

How do I care for my Nat’s Pet Mat?

Nat’s Pet Mats are very durable—vinyl flooring is long lasting and resilient.  We recommend wiping them clean with a damp cloth; do not soak them in water.  Also, avoid puncturing the pet food place mats with high heels or sharp falling objects because the painted design will dimple.  Each mat is sealed on the top and sides with at least five coats of acrylic floor sealer—this is more coats than new wood floors typically receive, so again, your mat is durable and has a life expectancy of several years.  Also we recommend that you don’t let your pet chew their...

What’s your refund policy?

I’ll replace any mat damaged in shipping.  I guarantee a match to colors if you send a fabric sample to me via snail mail before we begin painting your mats.  For an additional charge, I’ll provide you with color samples to approve before we paint your mats.  My mats are guaranteed for five years to be durable when wiped clean regularly, so if there’s any problem, contact me and I will make another mat when I receive your damaged one.  How do I know how durable they are?  The first prototypes are still sturdy and colorful outside in the garden, after several winters of rain and...

What makes Nat’s Pet Mats different from those mass-produced food mats?

My mats are produced especially for you (or your gift recipient), custom made to reflect you and your pet’s individuality. They are not mass-produced in some foreign factory, so you can count on the fact they are pet-safe with lead-free paints. Your mat is a work of art on the floor, similar to a handmade rug.  These mats have rich, deep, vibrant colors (which won’t fade) and feel smooth and soft.  The portrait of your pet is created from photos you provide and will be unique and fun to see.  Your pet’s name on the mat guarantees you have something that no one else...

What is a Nat’s Pet Mat?

Nat’s Pet Mats are place mats for your pets.  Cats and dogs benefit the most from them, because their food and water is usually out on your floor or on the counter.  Maybe you currently put the food straight on the floor or on top of newsprint or on a towel—Nat’s Pet Mats are better because they are attractive and easy to wipe clean.  Also, because they are customized just for you and your environment, Nat’s Pet Mats can coordinate with the floor or match your pet’s fur.  Other pets enjoy pet mats too.  You can put any cage on top of a custom Nat’s Pet Mat that protects the surface effectively, has the...
