Bushycat

Hey does anybody have Bushycats e-mail or anyway to contact her? I paid in advance for a pair of fox ears back at MFM 2008 and never got them. She was supposed to mail them but it has been over a month now. I've tried the e-mail address on her website twice now and still no answer.

This is apparently a common problem with her. She's been posted about before. :\

Can I ask if the images in your original post have been reuploaded somewhere else? The links are broken and I'm curious to compare your ref sheet to her finished product. If they're removed for a reason that's cool.

She's always at FC and AC, so if worse comes to worse, confront her there or have a friend do it if you're not going to either con.

Wow, Sinabu I read the link you posted. I kinda got the impression she was rude but I was not expecting that level of nastiness. Very unprofessional.

I kinda got a bit ticked at her when I was purchasing my ears and tail. I was standing there talking to her about different tails and such (I had said that I would buy one) and nobody else was up there. She responded with an abrupt "Well, if you want one, you're going to have to let me know now!" like I was some dumb oaf standing there wasting her precious time.

Later when I was giving her my information for mailing the ears, I spelled out the name of my street, because believe it or not I have had people misspell "Davies" before. She snapped "I can spell!"

I figured she was just a bit rude, I wasn't expecting her to be that rude and unprofessional.

I do hope that you get the item you paid for in the end, but maybe for next time pay attention to those rudeness-red flags as a sign of trouble and someone not worth supporting.

Now devils advocate is if the person behind the table was having a bad day - but in that case if you're selling behind a table and snap on someone, its a matter of shaking it off, apologising and explaining that to the customer.

I'd never heard of this person until all the posts about her popped up and it seems few and far between have something nice to say sadly.

I do hope it works out for you whether ears or a refund.

Hi, I've got Bushycat's e-mail. I'll send you an lj-message with the addy. I believe that Bushycat had some health issues which delayed her from sending out commissions and such, or she may have just forgot. All I can say is that I commissioned her for a badge and artwork in the past, and both times she's mailed the items to me. I had to wait quite awhile for them but Bushycat made sure that I got every item that I paid for ^.^

took me 9 months to get a simple commission that shouldn't have taken 24 hours. not only that but you can tell her heart wasn't in it. She is a definite beware and has been posted on here several times before. Make sure you don't message her more than Once a month or you may never see them from what i have been told.

YoroidenGi@aol.com However, as you see I've had problems with her (still do) and am out 45 bucks... health issues or not... it's been 2 years... so you can try, but I haven't gotten anything back from her... not even an email saying 'oh hi, I'm sick' or anything like that.

If you have noticed, she has even posted on FC2009's "Travel Assistance" board needing help for a ride there ( http://www.furtherconfusion.org/fc2009/policies/travel-assistance ). [Grammar errors fixed.]

Rebecca Frey (BushyCat)

"After 10 years of hitting every Further Confusion event, I am in jeopardy of having to skip this one. Coast-to-coast travel has become too expensive, with the average Greyhound ticket rising by 40% over last year's prices. Air fares are pretty much out of the question. I would love to be able to make FC again... I've been to so many I'd hate to miss this one. It's always a sea of Fur, Love and Silliness. It's an opportunity not only for selling my furry wares and artwork, but for enjoying seldom-seen friends and communing with kindred spirits. Many furs look for me in the dealers' room every year.... and their imaginative requests for unusual-looking commissions keep me on my toes artistically. It's as much entertainment as it is work. Here's hoping I will be able to share in the fun and friendship again this year."

I remember getting my tiger tail from her back in 2001 (it was already made), so I never had an experience with her doing a commission. If all these stories about not doing commissions is true, I am surprised she still shows up at conventions without being harassed by people wanting their stuff.

I've noticed if it's something that's already made or done... there aren't any problems. Anything that isn't, seems to be where the problems arise.

I hate to say this but I wouldn't hold your breath on this one, we've had so many people come in with the same or similar stories about her that her reputation is that she's a particularly rude artist that takes money but often doesn't give anything back except abuse.

Don't try to bug her too much because then she'll juts get rude to you and push you to the bottom of the cue.
