It’s a new day and a new year!  The vaccines are getting into arms and the new president has been inaugurated peacefully. Take a deep breath and give thanks that 2021 is now underway and we are moving beyond 2020.

Kitty Pause is making good forward movement, too. Right before Christmas we submitted revised plans to the City of Mesa and received feedback from them soon after the first of the year.

We are now in our final review with the City and look forward to getting a renovation permit in the coming days!  We are also in conversations with four contractors and should have their bids submitted very soon.  As soon as we pick the contractor, renovations to the Kitty Pause suite will begin.

Our fundraising campaigns on Indiegogo and Facebook have moved along steadily.  Between them and with other donations, we have raised the funds we need to contract for the building and installation of the Kitty Pause building sign!

The designer’s rendering of the sign looks great, doesn’t it? It will take a couple of months to build and should be ready to install not long before the completion of the renovation.

You can donate by going to our donation page on Facebook.  The Facebook campaign goes through Valentine’s Day.

OR, you can mail a check made out to Kitty Pause Kitty Café to 1837 W Guadalupe Rd, Mesa, AZ 85202. No expiration date on mailing checks.  😊

Please continue to donate and ask friends to join you as well!

If you have already donated, THANK YOU for joining the Kitty Pause Kitty Crew!  Every donation makes a positive difference in how soon we can open.

As soon as the renovation starts, I will begin posting regular video updates of how it is progressing including an initial video post of how it looks before we get started.

I hope that you have taken the 3D video tour of the design for the suite.  It’s going to be a great space for felines and friends!  THE place to pause and play with feline friends!

Assuming progress continues on a steady pace, we are looking to open sometime in April!

Thank you for making Kitty Pause happen!!
