SAN ANTONIO - Calling all cat lovers! The San Antonio Cat Café will officially be opening its doors in October.
The San Antonio Cat Café announced on its Facebook page that the grand opening will be on Sunday, Oct. 29.
Located on the north side at Broadway just outside of Loop 410, the café will be holding several sneak peek soft opening events before the grand opening. They wrote that people can visit their website or click the Book Now button on their Facebook page to lock in a reservation.
Owner Casey Steuart hopes the café will be a place for cats to show their personalities. Ultimately, the non-profit feline social lounge aims to get ‘adoptable cats and kitties’ into new homes. Steuart said it’s difficult for cats to get adopted in over-crowded, tense animal shelters.
In 11 months, Steuart has raised a little over her $20k goal through a Gofundme page to get the café off the ground. The Cat Café will be filled with cats from various rescue organizations and shelters around the state.
“It's a simple idea to get more cats and kittens socialized and adopted into loving homes and out of our overcrowded shelters,” Steuart posted to the Gofundme page.
Prospective adopters can come to the lounge and spend time with the cats in a cage-free, relaxed environment.
You’ll have to pay a ‘small entry fee’ according to the website. The owner said all proceeds will go to supporting animal shelters and rescue missions. The café will also offer social events and classes throughout the week where patrons can interact with pet experts and vendors.
