May is here! So much is happening and all of it is is good!
We have taken possession of the retail space at 1744 E. Main St, in Ventura. If you’re driving in midtown take a look and find where we are. We have started painting and will continue working on that through the weekend. We will also start assembling a lot of Ikea shelves plus some tables and chairs.
Since we started selling masks last summer we’ve sold over 640 of them! That is remarkable. We will continue to sell masks, pouches, cat toys, jewelry, stickers, and such in the lounge in our lobby area. We will also be exploring consignment, wholesale purchasing, and other partnerships.
We have relationships in place for working with other shelters and rescues in the area to identify cats to bring over to the lounge.
There are still things we would love to have donated! We will always need food and litter. We do not have any wand-type toys for the cats yet so some of those would be terrific. You can see all of our wishlists here:
We anticipate a bit of a soft opening in May before we go full-speed ahead in June. Once we have things running smoothly we will share more about volunteer opportunities!
We are SO excited to be so close to opening and can’t wait to welcome everybody to the lounge! =^..^=
