Moving Through the Process

I know that many of you are anxiously awaiting an update on what is going on with the build out of The Cat Cafe. I’m happy to share some good news with you.

See that? It’s not quite finished yet but it looks a lot different than when The Cat Cafe passed the drywall inspection about a week ago.

You can see that we finished the texturing of the ceiling, painted, and made it a much more welcoming place for both cats and people. We also installed new lighting, which was required by changes in the law. No longer is track lighting, which we had, an option for a commercial facility. The lights that went in use less energy and provide more lighting, which will make visitors and the resident cats here at The Cat Cafe happy.

Another milestone in the construction of The Cat Cafe was passed when the electrical inspector came by yesterday and signed off on the work that was done so that the four exit signs required by code can be installed. We’re working on completing that today.

We’ll put the doors required to separate the cats from the coffee in first thing in the morning tomorrow. And then it’s time to sweat out another visit from the inspector as we get our pre-final inspection done.

Assuming that goes well, The Cat Cafe will have its final inspection the next day. Anything that needs to be corrected in the pre-final inspection will be addressed by then.

And then, once that is passed, our long journey to being the first cat cafe in Southern California will be complete.

For those of you who can’t visit but would like to take a little piece of The Cat Cafe home, you can order a t-shirt. I’m selling those from now until the end of the year at $15, plus $5 shipping, within the United States.
