The Story

Since opening in January 2015, The Cat Cafe has sent nearly 200 cats from San Diego Humane Society to good homes. We limit the number of people who can be in our cat playpen to 16. With no more than a dozen cats present at any one time per guidelines from the ASPCA, we do this to make sure the animals don't get stressed or overstimulated.

This means during peak times, many people need to wait outside. To increase their comfort and to allow those who aren't interested in interacting with the cats to relax in a more comfortable way, we're building a sidewalk cafe.

This is not cheap. Simply obtaining the permits from the City to build the sidewalk cafe is likely to cost $2,000 to $3,000. Labor and materials is estimated to add another $1,500 to $2,000.

For a business less than two years old, we have been successful. But we need help with the capital to pursue this, and that's why we're coming to you!

Please help if you can. No donation is too small and both we and the cats we're able to help because of you appreciate it!

It's been a while since we updated you but we want to thank all of you who have contributed. We are now less than 20 percent away from our goal of $5,000. And if you had any doubt as to whether we would need all of that funding, take a look at the invoice from the City of San Diego! Just to get the permit costs nearly $1,200.

We are so grateful to all of our generous supporters. Thanks to you, we have hit the two thirds mark for our goal. Let's keep the momentum going. Please share our campaign so that we can push past that goal!

Wow! The generosity of our supporters is truly wonderful! We received a number of contributions yesterday, including two big ones that took us from around a third of our goal to more than half of it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

If you haven't contributed yet, please do and if you have, please share! We're getting close, everyone!
