Our physical store is closed
Our last day open at 1325 Portage Avenue has ended.
We will still be on line!
What happens next, which you need to know:
Our online store will be browsable, but purchasing (add to cart) will be disabled. We are moving everything so everything will be in boxes until the new online space is set up.
November 1 (fingers crossed), the online store starts working as everything will be unpacked and organized, and we will be able to start shipping again.
Until then, we will answer emails, and do updates on social media. We will also be doing some ordering so expect good things.
Coming Soon – US Shipping
You will soon be able to order from and ship to the continental US.
We have taken an on line US order, packed it, shipped it, and had no issues. It is not available yet – that was a bit of an experiment. An announcement will be made when it goes live.
You may see some small changes in the products and checkout sections, such as flag icons showing up. These do not mean anything yet and can be ignored. If anything behaves badly, please send an email and tell us about it.
Step 1: Products which can be shipped to the US need to have a tag added, weight and size checked, and a shipping class added. Not all products are allowed to cross the border.
This could be incremental. Day 1, maybe 40 products are available, a week later, 100.
Step 2: Code snippets will be added to the product displays. They need to put up the correct flag icons (US and CA or CA only).
See the mockup pic of the catnip mouse, an item we do stock in the store https://onespoiledkitty.ca/product/handmade-catnip-mouse/
Step 3: Code to detect non-shippable products in the cart if a US destination is specified, and block final checkout until they are removed.
Step 4: UPS shipping module integration into the checkout process for US destinations.
Note that US shipping will be weight and destination based. When you check out, the UPS shipping code contacts UPS to calculate the cost live.
We may at some future date do the same with shipments in Canada and enable UPS or Canada Post shipping to Canadian destinations. But that will be a seperate project and announcement.

Winnipeg local business
As Winnipeg re-opens, we ask you support local and small businesses. Its not just because we are local or small, but because local and small businesses are your neighbors, and they are the people who give this city much of its character. We don’t want to lose any part of it.
We deliver from Ontario through BC of course. And do free delivery nearby. If you are in the area, stop in to our shop and our neighbors shops too.

Cat Lifestyle Support
We do not take orders for stock we do not have, so you don’t need to worry about your order getting delayed for lack of supply.
Want to know if a collar or harness fits your cat? You can bring your cat into the store, in a carrier please, and try them on.
Web Store Local Pickup
Many people have wondered why its so hard to get the Local Pickup option. You had to unclick [x] Ship to another address, but who knew that?
Now that is unclicked by default. Once your home address is in, the option will appear in ‘Your order’, on desktop or mobile.
Your local pickup can be in store or curbside during our regular hours. If you want curbside, put that as a note in your order, then just phone when you get here.
Small and local businesses need your support. Visit us. Visit our neighboring stores. Together, we cover a lot of ground and provide great products and services, online and off.
Craig Street Cats
Craig Street Cats requires your help. They do awesome work with feral cats. But how to help?
- Consider trading in a few days of buying Starbucks or Tims coffees for a donation.
- Did we say coffee? Sadly, we have not been able to get Craig Street Cats “THE CATS SASS” coffee. Another reason to donate to them.
- Foster a cat or kitten.
- Drop off some food, litter, or other supplies (see their site for the kind they most need). You can drop off with us, or with them. As we remain open, its easy either way.
- If you come in, drop some money in the Craig Street Cats donation can.
- You may find yourself with a lot of time off now. Craig Street Cats may have a few things you can do with that time.
CSC alumni Curious and Ninja thank you.
