Local Cat Café Closing & Needs Help

It's with great difficulty and a heavy heart that we write these words. After 5 wonderful months of helping find homes for the cats of Berkeley County, we must close our doors.

Owning and operating a small business is not an easy feat, and we put our blood, sweat, tears, and personal finances into making this dream a reality. Our doors are closed effective immediately, and cats will return to BAC while we are packing up to vacate by August 31st.

Our last ask is, if possible, the community can help one last time. Bills due by September 1st equal $6000, and we need help covering it.

Kate has picked up overnight, weekend contract work as a Licensed Veterinary Technician at Veterinary Emergency Hospitals, and Tyler works full-time in Florence for Red Bull Distribution.

Friday, his car was hydroplaned into a guardrail at exit 196 off I-26, and although he is fine, the car sustained damage. Of course, this happened a month after collision insurance was removed to save costs on an older vehicle. We were not anticipating his promotion to a position in Florence, or us selling our home and buying one in the Summerton area to split the commute. And we certainly were not anticipating the closing of our new business.

Whatever funds are raised will be used for:

Rent: $2500
Utilities: $900
Business Loans: $1,120
Ending Contracts: ...?

Windshield repair: $429
Frame Assessment: ?
