Saving Cat Cafe Mad

$4,850 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 151 people in 1 month
Cat Cafe Mad, in Madison, Wisconsin is in jeopardy of closing, due to the Monroe Street construction for the next eight months. Help save our foster cats from being homeless by helping us pay our rent. Our revenue has fallen to less than 50% and construction hasn't started yet: only parking restrictions have started. We need the funds or we will lose our lease. Our lease is up for renewal April 15th. If we do not have funds to supplement our revenue we will have to close our doors.

While this would be sad for the community, it would be devastating for our cats. We would be so grateful. Our Shelter: Community Cat would be so grateful. Mostly, our dear cats and the hundreds of fosters that we facilitate adoptions for, would be eternally grateful.

Even small amounts are appreciated: every dollar helps us save cats. Our cats via Community Cat are saved from kill shelters. So our adoptions save lives.

Please come by Roast House for a cat themed drink , great food, fabulous cocoa, fabulous music and support our cats.

We've started a monthly sponsorship for Sebastian. As many of you know he is our special needs wobbler.

Thanks again we so appreciate your support.

Hi Everyone,

So far reducing our expenses during the week with Reservations at specific times and having open times Friday, Saturday and Sunday has worked to increase our revenue and reduce expenses. We still need lots of help because we cannot cover our rent.

We've had three adoptions in the last two weeks. We're so happy for our fur babies have found their forever homes. Check our facebook page for pictures of the adoptions.

Please continue to come in and visit us and taste our wonderful crepes. Remember reservations are needed on weekdays but we're open at 3 PM on Fridays and all weekend. Here's our scheduling link for appointments: https://CatCafeMad.as.me/

We're looking forward to scheduling a Kitty Time event as soon as the kittens are born and ready. We have an offsite venue for this. It will be announced later this new month.

We'd like to wish you all a great Holiday weekend. We will be closed Sunday (don't worry the kitties will be taken care of). We thank you all for your help in keeping us open.

Love and peace for the holidays,

Team Cat Cafe Mad

Thank you all for your contributions. With your help we are open through March. We are revisiting our status for April and continuation of our lease April 15th. We're also looking for new space: so far, no one will take cats. Or there's space we can't afford. Our best bet is to find the lease money to stay until the construction is over in October.

We do have a potential space for Kitten Time: were we to close or even if we don't we'll use the potential space for Kitten Time starting in May.

Traffic update on Monroe Street: Please park by Trader Joes or on the side street or streets parallel to Monroe. Monroe is now a one way street and so are the buses. Buses on Regent is the best bet back to the UW-Mad.

Please stay tuned to new ideas. Right now, we had to close weekdays: except for feeding time and Thursday and Friday evenings starting at 5PM. We need 8 people in to break even with staff costs. We are open to walk in traffic on weekends: 9:30 am to 10PM Saturday and 9:30AM to 8PM Sunday. Please watch for events Thursday or Friday nights.

Hit event of the week: High Tea: yummy food, we will repeating this every other week on Sundays.
