My cat cave have wrinkles on it, what should I do?

At Cattasaurus, we offer 2 options for shipping the cat caves. There are the folded package - in which, the cat cave will be pack in a smaller box to save shipping cost for customer - and the original package, which is bigger and have a much higher shipping cost. Both have the same quality, but the folded package will cause some wrinkles to appear on the cat cave.
If your cat cave has wrinkles on it, there are a few things you can do to get rid of them, and it a relatively easy process.
Here is a step-by-step tutorial on how to remove dents and wrinkles from a felt cat cave:
  1. Start by cleaning the felt surface of the cave with a lint roller or a lint brush. This will remove any debris or dirt that may have accumulated, and make it easier to spot and remove dents.
  2. Use a steamer or a damp cloth to apply heat to the dents and wrinkles. The heat will help to soften the felt and make it more pliable, making it easier to smooth out the wrinkles. Be careful not to overheat the felt, as this can cause shrinkage or damage to the material.
  3. Gently massage the dents using your hands to reshape the felt. You can use a pet brush or a wide-tooth comb to help smooth out the felt and remove any wrinkles.
  4. If the dents are particularly deep or stubborn, you can try using a baseball or tennis ball wrapped in plastic wrap or a cloth. Place the ball inside the cave and press it against the dent, gradually working the dent out.
  5. Once you've removed the dents and wrinkles, let the felt dry completely before using the cave again. You may reshape the felt while it's still damp, if possible, to ensure that it retains its new shape when dry.
It's important to avoid using chemicals, scissors or harsher methods on the felt as it's a delicate material, and the use of such methods can cause damage.
The above-explained steps are simple and easy to follow and they can help you remove dents and wrinkles from a felt cat cave in no time. Or you can zip the cat cave together, push it into the original shape, the wrinkles will go away in 1-3 weeks depending on the moisture in your house.
