What We Do
Kitty Loves Monster is a furry apparel business, based near Seattle, WA (USA). We sell clothing and accessories, designed by furs for furs. There are enough of us out there - it's time to have our own fashion lines!
Our goal is to tap into the incredible amount of artistic creativity within the fandom to create unique product lines of furry-relevant styles. We think the era of furries being timid and embarrassed about expressing themselves needs to come to an end. Let's show the world how awesome we are!
We take pride in producing high quality products at reasonable prices. To this end, all our screen printing is done in-house helping us keep the business within the furry universe whenever possible. Also we believe in instant gratification, so our orders are typically shipped out within one business day of receiving them.

Stripey - Chief Executive Monster
I’m canine with a background in microbiology/pathology (Science Rules!) who's not squeamish about having his paws up to the elbows inside an autopsy. I'm a lifelong furry, obsessive audiophile and generally weird guy. I spend my free time DJ-ing for local furry event producers Fur the Record under the moniker Speakerbarxx, watching excessive amounts of mixed martial arts and completely spoiling my two dogs (the 4-legged variety).
After tiring of a interesting but thoroughly tedious career working in hospital labs, I struck out to reignite the creative spark. In early 2011 I founded Kitty Loves Monster as an outlet to sell my custom welded steel furniture and artwork. Printing furry t-shirts was initially just a side project, but as demand for them grew apparel quickly became the focus of K<3M.
The adventure that K<3M has become has helped me leave behind some of my shyness and meet an incredible group of local (and far away) friends who have helped to build up the foundation of this company. We’ve got a million projects that we’d love to work on, the hardest part has been deciding what to do first. K<3M will always be growing and evolving and I hope you can join us on our journey :]
RØD - The Minion
K<3M Warehouse Folf by day, werewolf by night. I am a friendly dog and all around passionate artist and musician. Whether it’s clothing, costumes, painting/drawing, music, photography, or social networking, I use anything I can get my hands on as a creative outlet.
After growing up in the Bay Area of CA I moved up to Seattle, WA to go to school and pursue a career in industrial influenced music. I started getting heavily involved in the Seattle fur scene, including Fur the Record, and was soon spinning Aggrotech/Industrial DJ sets at house parties and furry conventions as my werewolf/gamer alias, Bloodwiser.
In July of 2012 my good friend, Stripey, hired me as the first official employee of Kitty Loves Monster as a Production Assistant / Wearhouse Folf. I have since taken on the roles of product model and K<3M social network manager. I get to travel to fur conventions around the U.S. and meet what seems to be an infinite amount of amazing people. The opportunity has provided me with skills and experience I’ll use for the rest of my life, and I have never been so passionate working for anyone else.
To me, Kitty Loves Monster is about supporting the furry community and spreading its open, loving culture around the world. We have come a long way since I started here, and there is so much more room to grow. It is so inspiring to see the support, love, and help our friends and fans have provided, which we are ever so thankful for!
Daiquiri - The Bassist of the Band
Outspoken, fun loving, a hint obnoxious, and tragically Canadian, this red panda fell in love with Kitty Loves Monster not only for it's incredible owner and minion, but also for the passion they put into their work. So much in fact that I generally travel from Vancouver, BC to the Seattle area two to three days a week to work for them on top of my current job.
Born in Oakville, growing up in Toronto and moving to Vancouver, I've never felt tied down anywhere in my life. I obtained a job as the senior manager for a rather large footwear company making a decent pay cheque but at the age of 21 was having no fun with my life whatsoever. I quit, and instead began bartending to pay the bills while I traveled around to see and meet incredible new people and places.
In January of 2013, I became involved with K<3M as a sales analyst and customer service rep as well as handling general overall behind-the-scenes duties from up in the frigid North. Now, due to the love and support I receive from both the K<3M crew and everyone that I know, I call Seattle one of my homes. I intend to move down to Seattle, a difficult process but one I can hopefully achieve, to attend school while helping out with the business. We are here for the community and always will be, and my presence lives on here at the Monster Lab even when I’m stuck up in Canadaland.
