Permits, Planning, and Preparation
Hi, everyone! I wanted to keep you up to date on what is going on here at The Cat Cafe.
First, I want to thank everyone who’s been inquiring about The Cat Cafe and what is happening. A number of you have asked when we will open, what our hours will be, and so on.
Now that I have the needed permits in hand and have taken possession of the space, I can give you more details on what’s going on.
The plan is to have a soft open for The Cat Cafe sometime the week of October 27. There will be a private event for one of the contributors to the crowd funding campaign we ran this spring, which will give us a chance to work on making sure everything is ready for when we open to the public.
Then we’ll have a launch party the weekend of November 1, where our partner agency, the media, and other notables will be present. After that, we’ll open our doors for real.
As far as hours go, The Cat Cafe will be initially be open from 7 AM until 3 PM seven days a week. I’ve had a number of people ask if we could open during the evening, and the answer to that question is we’ll see. If there is enough demand to justify it financially, then I’ll extend the hours.
But for now, I want to make sure that we don’t overextend ourselves and that I don’t get too ambitious too soon.
I know that it’s been a long time and that many of you have been waiting patiently for a while now. I’m going to ask you to bear with me just a little longer because The Cat Cafe will be open before you know it!
Thanks for your continued support. I’m looking forward to saying hello to you in person!
