June 4 Update
Lots of things going on here with The Cat Cafe. On Monday, I met with the San Diego Humane Society. I shared the business plan for The Cat Cafe, and they’re going to have the executive team review it and figure out how best to proceed. Already, they’ve been helpful. They had some feedback on what I should name the place where the cats will be. I was going to call it the Cat Sanctuary but they advised against it.
As you can guess, I’m not the most creative of all people. I’ll be turning to you to ask for help in naming the area where the cats will be housed. I’m sure one of you will have a much better name than I can come up with.
After we were done talking business, I got to take a tour of an amazing facility. The best part of it was getting to see a part of the facility that’s not open to the public. I got to see the kitten nursery. It was a cuteness overload!
This was taken the next day, when some people from the ASPCA came to visit the facility and see if it was something that they could take nationwide.
I also got a call from the casting team at ABC’s Shark Tank.
It’s going to be a lot of work, and my friends at NBC San Diego might be a little upset with me if I go on a competing network after they were kind enough to write such a nice article about The Cat Cafe.
But the opportunity to have the sharks grill me for 20 minutes about my business, even if no investments come in, is an amazing one. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot, even if I get ripped to shreds by them.
