Celebrate the love you have for your pet guinea pig, hamster, or rat with a stuffed animal replica that looks just like them. We can take any picture of your pet and make a look-alike stuffed version based off the photo. Our talented designers and seamstresses can capture everything from their adorable big dark eyes to their tiny little ears.
Sure, you could get a $10 stuffed animal from your local toy store, but it doesn’t provide the same emotional connection as a 100% handmade custom stuffed version of your pet. Your custom Petsies plush will be an excellent way to remember your pet forever and always.

When were small mammals domesticated?
Guinea pigs were domesticated in 5,000 BC. So, they’ve been around for a long time. Even Queen Elizabeth I had a pet guinea pig! Hamsters were domesticated in 1939. They were first bred in Jerusalem with the original breeding colony exported to the USA. Pet rats didn't come until more recently,
Why were small mammals domesticated?
Guinea Pigs were originally domesticated for food. Yet others were worshipped and depicted in art. Eventually, they became good pets and garbage disposals as they would eat all the leftovers! Rats were domesticated for by biological researchers to ease handling of their experimental subjects.
How do these pets differ today?
Although the ancestors of today’s hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs, rats, mice, rabbits and chinchillas were wild animals, the “pocket” pets we keep in our homes today are captive-bred and completely dependent on human caretakers for food, care, company and protection.
We can create a custom lookalike of all kinds of pets, big and small, no matter how exotic they are! Check out some of our most popular animal plushies we've made.
We'll send you a reminder as promised.
