The lounge is ready for cats and we are currently working with some local shelters and rescues, identifying kitties that will be good candidates for the lounge’s communal living environment. We were hoping to open in May – and we may still be able to! – but it all depends on having kitties who are comfortable and ready for visitors. We’re currently exploring the possibility of having limited hours and fewer visitors at a time if we aren’t at the capacity of kitties we’re hoping for. So we are looking at more of a “soft” opening until we can have a more “grand” opening. The mission has always been to help rescued cats and kittens find safe, loving, permanent homes, and we are definitely getting closer to being to do that with the lounge!
Pandora and her four kittens are still in foster with us. Pandora will be spayed on Monday and then go home to her furever home. She is a delightful, loving, playful cat and we’re so glad that she will have a loving home. Olive, Filo, Fig, and Honey are also already spoken for and will be getting spayed/neutered and then going home the first week of June. They are growing and developing perfectly and couldn’t be more fun! We will miss having that kitten energy around. We’ve been fostering basically nonstop since just before the covid shutdowns began in March of 2020, and the house will seem much quieter once we say goodbye to these sweethearts.
There is a video showing off the lounge on Facebook. We’ve made a few changes since then including a screen door between the lobby and the lounge and a slipcover for the white sofa, among other things.
We had a very generous donation come in and are so appreciative of all the support we’ve had for our future kitties. If you would like to contribute anything, food and litter will always be great! You can make a financial donation too and it’s tax-deductible. Our Support page gives all the details.
Looking forward to welcoming visitors to the lounge just as soon as we can!
