     So, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of a “cat café” by now… right? A cat café is exactly what it sounds like – a coffee shop, with cats! 

     This & That with Cats will be a kitty lounge that houses free-roaming, 100% ADOPTABLE cats. They will be provided to us by a local rescue center and they will be vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and have a clean bill of health! Although it is very similar to a cat café, we have a twist…

     This & That with Cats won’t exactly be a cat café. (Then what on earth is it?!) Yeah, coffee is cool and all, but we wanted to create something even MORE meaningful than cats being adopted with a side of latte. Here is where the “This & That” part comes in. At set times during the day, we will let local artists utilize our space so that they can teach their talents. From jewelry making, to yoga, to live painting, to sewing/knitting, you name it! We want to provide artists of all kinds with a platform that will help them grow their own business doing what they love. So although This & That with Cats won’t have the coffee shop aspect, we are happy to say that we will be supporting local artists in our lounge.

     We will also have super cute kitty products for sale! You'll have the opportunity to bring home an all natural, hand-made toy to your furry friend!

      Okay okay, you’re right. We need to have some kind of treats for our humans. That’s why we are going to team up with a local bakers to provide sealed baked goods to our awesome humans! We look forward to offering yummy options like cookies and macaroons. And don’t worry, all food items will be produced and sealed in a separate facility. You won’t find a cat hair in your cookie!

     We will invite local artists to utilize the lounge to teach their craft. We want to help give them exposure for their passion and hope we can do this by letting them share their talent! (With this being said, feel free to reach out if you are an artist interested in teaching at This & That with Cats!)

     Now for the not so fun stuff - numbers. Below is a spreadsheet of the main expenses and bare minimum approximate amounts it will take to open our doors. This does not include other things like kitty toys, cat litter/food, furniture, decor, rent, utilities, etc. We are setting our Kickstarter goal at $32,000, but we want our guests and cats to have the best experience possible, so we are aiming to exceed this goal!    


     This & That with Cats is something to be excited about because it is a place of opportunity and love. We give these shelter cats the opportunity to break free of a life in a cage. We give these kitties the opportunity to find their forever home. We give local artists the opportunity to spread their talent and share their dreams. Loving and supporting each other (both animals and humans alike) is so important in today’s world. This & That with Cats can’t solve all of the world’s problems, but it can definitely make many lives better and brighter.

     We are excited to have new supporters on board, and to those who have already shown love and support, thank you. We cannot create This & That with Cats without all of you, so we are grateful for each and every one of you!
