Help Us Build The Most Epic Cat Fort Ever!
We found ourselves staring at a large, empty building and thought, "What should we do here?" 7,000 square feet of possibility in front of us and we decided to do what any self-respecting cat lovers would do: build the biggest, most epic cat fort ever!
For two months, we'll be working with volunteers and members of the community to create this Epic Cat Fort. Local artists and artistic volunteers will help decorate the Epic Cat Fort, and we're putting our whole hearts into this project!
But we need your help! We've got the venue in Tarentum, PA, and some building supplies (namely cardboard) donated by Construction Junction, but we need cold, hard cash to get this Epic Cat Fort off the ground--literally!
A community effort, we'll be working with the local Historical society and animal shelter, along with community members, to make the unveiling of the Epic Cat Fort an event to remember. While we hope some lucky cats will find happy homes as a result of this project, the real goal is to build a truly amazing, incredibly epic, possibly Guiness World Record-worthy, Epic Cat Fort.
Help us realize this feat of awesomeness when you enlist in the Cat Army with your donation to the cause!
Risks and challenges
As we all know, cats are animals. And animals can be unpredictable! The unpredictable nature of cats--as well as the diseases cats can give one other through biting and scratching--are some of the challenges associated with this project. We wouldn't be bringing more cat joy into the world in the form of an Epic Cat Fort if we didn't love cats, so we will be taking every precaution to make sure the cats frolicking in the fort are healthy and safe.
To do this:
- The Epic Cat Fort will be rigorously tested before the event to make sure it is structurally sound and safe for the cats.
- During the event, healthy cats with up-to-date vaccinations from the local animal shelter will be exploring the Epic Cat Fort.
- For those cats who may be anti-social, some sections of the cat fort will be built so they can be partitioned off from the larger cat fort.
Another challenge related to this project is the occupancy limits of the venue. We will be limited to 100 simultaneous visitors in the main building during the event. To address this potential challenge, we will host tables and other activities in a nearby building on the same property if we anticipate a large turnout.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
