Scarborough’s first Cat Cafe

£250 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 12 people in 6 months
I am raising money to make my dream possible to set up and run, a ‘Cat Cafe’ in Scarborough.  A therapeutic  space, where people can come together and enjoy and share my group of beautiful cats. See below for a list of rewards on offer for donating. 

This will be available to the local community who love and adore cats, and benefit people who don’t have the privaliage of keeping their own. Also to people who  maybe struggling with loneliness, with  their mental health, and disability. Whilst visiting they can  enjoy stroking cats, while relaxing with a nice cuppa and/or snack. 

Spending time stroking  cats is great for your health and well-being. Studies have shown that the act of stroking pets releases feel good hormones, which can  lower blood pressure, help with low self esteem, confidence building and  aid relaxation, plus so much more .

The cafe will  be set up under my current company Pet Assist Animal Care Ltd, for which I am Director, which offers local pet care  and Counselling  & Animal Assisted therapy. This company will be contributing toward some of the costs, however to make it fully accessible to disabled people the premises needs some alterations and needs fully furnishing, and so money is greatly needed, hence my reason for setting up this page.

I have premises in mind  within a central location in Scarborough, which will be in easy reach for people, is on a bus route and will be fully accessible.

The main purpose of the cafe is to give people a Cat Experience, which will be realistically and fairly priced. This also creates a Cafe different to other cafes many of which are already in the area.

People will be able to book in online, or walk in and take a seat and while there buy refreshments. Monthly or weekly passes will be available to purchase  which will enable users to come more frequently.

Reward for your  donations:
Donate £5 for your name written on our supporters wall in the cafe
Donate £10  for two admissions  and get a 3rd admission visit  free.
Donate £15 get unlimited free entry for 1 week.
Donate £50 get unlimited entry for one month and 1 free tea or coffee per visit.
Donate £130  get unlimited entry for three months and 1 free tea or coffee per visit.
Donate £250 get unlimited entry for six months and 1 free tea or  coffee and a scone  or cupcake per visit.
All donations will be gratefully received and put to good use to enable the Cat Cafe to open (if for any reason the Cat Cafe does not go ahead and open, all donations will be fully refunded).

Once  the cafe is up and running Profits taken from entry fees will be put back into the business and go toward the cats welfare.

There will be oppertunitys  to sponser a chosen cat and receive a photo in return.  I would also like to link with other cat  charities and hopefully provide more cats with a possible re-home service.

Job opportunities will be hopefully created as well as supported working opportunities for disabled people. Volunteer opportunities will also be available.

A survey has already been completed by Local people giving fantastic results, showing a lot of interest in attending  the  cat cafe  once open  and  many from facebook group ‘Cat lovers in Scarborough’ who’s members are as cat mad as me. Much appreciated. 

Now let’s make this Cat Cafe happen in reality!
