Risks and challenges

In order to stay open and obtain all our working permits, we have to build a wall separating the cat lounge from the boutique and front door. The cost of this is has been given to us by our contractor and is estimated to be $10,000. We also have to complete updates to our bathroom, blinds, and need additional funding for operations.

Because we Temporarily opened in May without everything being completed, we have not been able to catch up or finish the project.

Without the funding to complete the construction, we will not be able to stay open until the funding is obtained.
