MY CAR PET inspiration
The inventor, Shaun Kruse, created the MY CAR PET carpet creature by accident. Shaun was walking to his car after a long day of work while reading a coupon book. Upon glancing at an ad for a carpet cleaning service, Shaun was confused as read their website's address realcleancarpets.com. As he broke the words down in his mind, he read "real" "clean" "car" "pets." After laughing and realizing that the word "carpet" is spelled "car pet," it occurred to Shaun that it would be funny to make a pet for your car out of carpet. It was at that moment that the idea behind My-Car-Pet.com was born.
Each MY CAR PET carpet creature is hand crafted with love in the United States of America from retro color shag carpet, wiggle eyes, foamboard, pipe cleaners and ScotchTM brand clear mounting squares. Also, every carpet creature is signed and dated by the inventor/artist. I guess you could say that each one is a original piece of artwork. Accept no substitutes, buy one or two or three now!
