About this project

Puss N' Books is a used book shop and cat cafe. We have joined forces with Cattails Feline Rescue to dream up the perfect scenario: A cat cafe that allows the cats to find loving homes, and provide people with the relaxation that felines are known to provide. We are setting up here in Bloomington, IL, near Illinois State University. There are a lot of students around here constantly missing their feline friends at home, we believe this is a chance for students to get away and enjoy the relaxing environment. 

People will be able to stop in to play with the cats, grab a coffee, purchase a book, adopt a cat or a combination of them all!

The money we are raising is going towards the complete start up costs:

  • Registering as a company
  • Permits
  • Supplies
  • A location
  • Cat-ifying the location
  • Marketing

We plan on making this happening, hand in hand, with Cattails Feline Rescue. They will be our source of cats and kittens. Dr. Reid is a vet who will make sure the cats are happy and healthy. Once they are rescued and cleared by Dr. Reid, they will find sanctuary with us until finding a great home. 

Risks and challenges

The biggest potential obstacle to our project is gaining permits and a location. We have done extensive research about this potential obstacle, and believe there should be no problem. If, however, it does become a problem, we are prepared to make it a used bookshop and a cat cafe using pre-packaged goodies instead of on-site production.
