Saving Cat Cafe Mad

$3,660 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 115 people in 18 days
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.

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.

Thanks to all of you, we've had a great start. We need to last the next 8 months during the Monroe Street construction. Or find a new location where our customers can get to us. Please share our campaign. We save cat lives by working with Community Cat who brings us cats from "kill shelters" to foster. We get them adopted and new and great lives. Please help.
