Pawsonify exists to enliven the relationships between pets and their geeky humans. We seek out beloved anime and games, capture the spirit of those stories and characters in our designs, and transform them into comfortable and durable pet accessories that your pet can wear every day. Our team of pet lovers works out of a small production facility in California where virtually all of our products are assembled on site.

Founder, CEO, Creative Director

Vensy March

Vensy was a veteran of the cosplay world as a model and high-end costume designer when on a trip to Japan she fell in love with the country’s beautiful, elaborate pet collars. Thus began her vision to merge her love of animals with her love of anime and video games. With a sewing machine and a small work desk in her parents’ apartment, Vensy started making her first cat collars in 2018 and Pawsonify was born. She is the lead designer, product manager, and overall creative leader for the company. A dedicated cat mom, Vensy provides her two Scottish folds with homegrown catnip. Yes, it’s the good stuff.

A long time brand leader at Riot Games, Kevin now runs the business side of Pawsonify. He loves connecting brands with enthusiastic communities, having done so for League of Legends, Disneyland, Dreamworks, and Tony Hawk, and is excited to do this with anime-loving pet lovers. Kevin is a habitual cat fosterer and compulsive dog pic upvoter.

Operations Lead

April Bermel

April met Vensy back in 2008 when they both cosplayed Yoko Littner at Anime Expo. Their friendship grew during their very brief careers as Maid Cafe maids and years later April pitched in at Pawsonify’s first con in 2018. Today she brings her wealth of fabrication, customer service, and QA experience to Pawsonify. She last worked on Aion and Call of Duty. Press F. (Fun fact: April grew up the daughter of what some would call a “crazy cat lady” who at one point had 27 cats!)


Kathy Vo

Kathy started her crafting career by selling her own origami creations for 25 cents each to her classmates in middle school. After college she co-founded anime accessory-maker Artistsan Studio and relentlessly exhibited at anime conventions. Kathy has gone to over 100 cons, either as an exhibitor or attendee. Achievement Unlocked! She makes many of our collars and leashes and in her non-convention time she loves unwinding through naptimes with her black cat..
