Houston Wants a Cat Cafe and YOU Can Help
Houston, we hear you and are thrilled by your support! El Gato offered a cat cafe pop-up and you pounced at our sneak peak. We underestimated the demand for tickets and this left us with a pawsitive dilemma. "How do we give Houston a larger cat lounge in the pop-up cat cafe?" "We rent this space next door" and that is exactly what we did! It was a rainy Sunday evening and you still came out to meet the Houston Humane Society Cats and to socialize with the cat-loving community over coffee and ice cream.
Bringing the pop-up cat cafe to life was a dream come true and we can't wait to open a permanent location. We do need the support of the Houston community to help us open sooner and also to ensure affordability of the cat lounge cover for all El Gato guests. We have $27,649 to raise over the next 2 weeks. we could meet our goal if each El Gato Facebook follower donated $14* each.
*for a $14 pledge you get a community pack reward on Kickstarter - reward includes an EL Gato Koozie, 3" vinyl El Gato brand logo decal, an El Gato logo pin, a thank you email from the Houston Humane Society Cats AND bragging rights as a founding El Gato supporter. or become a founding member of el gato for $175 and receive 30 free visits in the cat lounge and 2 guest passes.
