BaristaCats Café Is Relocating! Help Us Keep Auckland’s Only Cat Café Going.

Project 2020-01-24 22:47:14 +1300

BaristaCats Café is a cat café right in the heart of Auckland's CBD. We are home to 13 resident rescue cats as well as several foster cats with a particular focus on older cats and ones with special needs.

Bryan

To spend time with our colourful clowder of cats, we charge an entry fee which goes directly back towards the cats' care and running of the café, their forever home. We have been open since 1 December 2015 but on 1 October 2020 the lease at our current premises comes to an end.

While we are very proud of where we're at coming in to our 5th year, the location and space has its challenges so consequently we are looking to move to premises that is more conducive and supportive of having a cat café in the area.

Fosters

Our hope is to be in a space that will allow us to have more foster cats, establishing ourselves as a central adoption centre for our partner rescue Franklin Cat Rescue. In addition we would like to change up the layout so that the cat and dining areas are separate, dedicated spaces which we feel would refine our day-to-day operations. We would also ideally like to be in premises that are on a ground level so we can accommodate guests with accessibility needs.

Above all else we are committed to continuing to be a forever home to our furry family as well as being able to provide a space for people who can’t have cats, who are missing their cats back home or simply love cats, a place to be able to get their cat fix. This is where YOU come in. To achieve all this, we need your help!

Goldie

Moving is stressful and expensive at the best of times and is even moreso when moving a business with 17 cats in tow. Consequently this is why we have set up this crowdfunding page - to help us raise much needed funds to help with this mammoth task.

All pledges will contribute primarily towards the fit out of the new premises, overlapping rent and temporary accommodation for the cats and to say thank you, each pledger will receive a reward. There are different tiers of rewards - the more you give, the more you'll get! In addition every single pledger will have their name on our thank you 'wall of fame' at the new premises.

We have set the target as the minimum we would need to help get us on the right track; in actuality ideally almost double of this would go a long way to helping us afford other things on our 'wish list'. Every little bit helps though so any donation, big or small, will be so very much appreciated.

Help us keep Auckland's only cat café going - pledge meow!
