Hello Cats’ Inn family,
We have some exciting news to share!! With the overwhelming demand, thanks to all of you and your recommendations, we have made the decision to expand into a larger space. We have secured the purrfect building for the new location for The Cats’ Inn – TCI 2.0. We will be staying in Belmont, across the street, closer to the train station and just a minute from our current facility. We are diligently working on renovations for the new building and expect to move into the new Cats’ Inn sometime later this year – probably in early November, if all goes well with construction.
We will have many more of the most popular suites available; Villas and Cottages, with lots of windows and sunlight for the kitties to look out from their upgraded suites. We will also have larger, all glass playrooms with many more themes and amenities and climbing activities, including sunbathing hammocks for the kitties to lounge in. We intend to make it the most amazing cattery the Bay Area has to offer! The new facility will be 3400 sq. ft of pure cat Disneyland heaven!
We also plan be adopting two senior house cats from SPCA or Nine Lives, that would otherwise not find a furrrever home, so they can welcome new and current guests, and have so many more feline and human friends shower them with love and affection
Unfortunately, though we have hit a hiccup in the budgeting and available funds from the bank - even after all of our very detailed planning, we have been informed by the city of Belmont that we are required to install a new indoor fire sprinkler system for the new facility. Regretfully, this falls way outside our budgeted loan amount (as this was told after we were funded) and the bank is unwilling to grant us a loan extension at this point. We want to create every magnificent detail that we have planned for all of our feline friends and make it an even bigger kitty wonderland than we have now, but this is a show stopper since we cannot open doors without the new sprinkler system.
After trying to re-work, the budget, we have come to the conclusion that we have no other choice but to ask for your help. So, we are humbly asking for your help to supplement the budget needed for the sprinkler system. If you can find it in your heart to donate any amount of $$ to our cause, we would be eternally grateful for your generosity.
Your Cats’ Inn Family
