Wild at Heart are Kim and Darren, two animal-loving crafters who decided to leave the rat-race in 2018 to establish their own small
business selling lovingly hand made gifts, all with an animal theme.

Both of us grew up in animal-friendly households with dogs and cats. Darren has rescued 16 homeless or stray cats over the years and worked for a number of years at Animals in Distress in Irlam in Greater Manchester. When Kim and Darren met 5 years ago, she knew
it was the cats she had to impress more than the parents! She passed the test with flying colours and the current three cats (Milly, Jarvis
and Polly) follow her around all day long, especially now that we’re working largely from home. They help/hinder us as and when they can
be bothered.

Since meeting, we have fulfilled lifelong dreams of seeing lemurs in Madagascar and orangutans in Borneo. When deciding on the theme
for our business, it seemed like the natural choice to make animals the stars of the show!
