We have 4 delightful cats in the lounge now and have increased our available hours. By mid-June we aim to offer regular days and hours for both reservations and walk-ins, and we hope to be able to bring in more rescued kitties for visits and adoptions. Right now you can come meet Bettie, Michael, Missy, and Mittens. All four are friendly. Missy isn’t a lap cat but the other three definitely are. Bettie is the shyest of the bunch but loves human attention. All four are estimated to be between 3-6 years old and will make wonderful companions to their lucky adopters. In the meantime, they are happy in the lounge and being well taken care of. You can what availability we have at any time by going to the Reservations page and checking the calendar at the bottom of that page.
We will be scheduling some volunteer orientations later this month. Once you’ve gone through an orientation you’ll be able to volunteer in the lounge and will receive access to our online sign-up. If you’ve already submitted a volunteer application you’ll be getting an email about the orientation sessions. Volunteering in the lounge as a host will involve socializing with the cats, welcoming guests, answering questions, gently but firmly enforcing policies when needed, cleaning litter boxes, cleaning/sanitizing the lounge, and anything else that might need to be done. If you volunteer to help open or close additional duties will be involved such as heavier cleaning, feeding the cats, taking out trash, etc. If you want to help in other ways (photography, marketing, special events) we will have opportunities for that too.
Hope to see you at the lounge soon!
