About Me


Various Pee PadsSo who are CandE Cosies? Well, to be honest "we" is just a WAHM but in full we are a family of guinea pig lovers who have owned and adored guinea pigs for far too many years to remember. We were also experienced small animal boarders and have looked after guinea pigs, rabbits, African pygmy hedgehogs, tortoises, hamsters, rats, chinchillas with many many returning customers.

Over the years we've met some lovely people who have asked where they could get hold of accessories like snuggle sacks, tunnels and cage liners. CandE Cosies became the brainchild of me and using my experience and passion for sewing alongside my love of small animals I designed snuggle sacks in 2012 and started making in 2013. This was followed quickly by the ramp tunnels which are UNIQUE in the UK.

Not long after, my cage liners which use Zorb™ as the absorbent core materialised. I was the first to use Zorb™ in the UK and am still the only one to use it in ALL of my liners. Why do I use it? Simply because it is the best material to use and absorbs more than bamboo, toweling, mattress toppers and definitely more than polyester wadding. These other cores are used by many other sellers claiming to make "luxury" liners. This does annoy me because wadding doesn't even absorb moisture at all! The added bonus is that Zorb™ is lightweight and dries quickly as well.

More About Me

Sewing Machine SilhouetteI am a work at home mum (WAHM) with 4 children with varying ages, the most demanding being a little one who just started school and a toddler. I have always continued to have the passion to supply what I and my customers feel are the best liners and so despite breaks due to pregnancy etc I have always returned to making them. I have been pleased to see familiar faces returning as well as many many more new customers.

I don't exaggerate my achievements or pretend I am something I am not. I am a genuine WAHM who makes everything at my home whilst sharing childminding responsibilities with my other half. Nothing is outsourced except for the fact that Dave helps design and maintain the website and sometimes cuts the fabric as well as being a sounding board when I need another opinion, though he's usually wrong LOL 

It is because of the fact every product is hand made by myself that there is a 7-10 day wait, longer at busier times, on liners though I will always try to make them quicker than this and often do. I am happy to make liners from fabric supplied by you or even completely bespoke sizes for a variety of cages.

If you have any questions about CandE Cosies or the products I make then please don't hesitate getting in touch. Otherwise why not go to The Best Cage Liners and add one or more to your shopping cart.

Thanks for taking the time to read about me and why I do what I do. Simply put, because I LOVE MAKING ACCESSORIES FOR SMALL ANIMALS :)

Kind regards
