The idea of Cuddle Clones was born when Jennifer Williams was sleeping, cuddling Rufus, her pet Harlequin Great Dane. This dog had unique markings that she simply adored. It suddenly struck her as to what will she do, if her dog was to pass away.
She was certain that it’ll be impossible to find a replacement for Rufus in a pet shop. That thought stuck in her mind and, when her pet dog did pass away, she honored him with a memorial by making his life-size replica, fur and all. This provided her great solace and led her to think there would be others like her suffering in the absence of their lovable pet dogs.
While doing MBA from the University of Louisville, Jennifer came in contact with Adam Greene and the two together founded Cuddle Clones. Both had realized the importance of pet dogs among those who have to stay away from their homes, such as those traveling, deployed in far off places in the defense forces, shifted out from hometown for studies and such like people. What Cuddle Clones does is to fill the void of absent pets by means of their plush replicas.
The procedure adopted by Cuddle Clones is really simple. All you need to do is to upload the photos of your pet dog on its website, provide information regarding its unique traits and choose which position you want it in – standing, sitting or crouching. The replica is made in the form of a stuffed animal and is 100 percent handmade. It admirably captures the physical details and personality traits. What’s more, every purchase provides three meals and a toy to a shelter pet through GreaterGood.org.
Little wonder this idea became an instant hit with dog lovers. It comes as no surprise that Cuddle Clones enjoys a following of over 97,000 fans on Instagram alone.
