It’s been more than three years since the Ferndale Cat Shelter opened the Catfe Lounge – the first permanent cat cafe in Michigan. To celebrate three years in the community and to maintain our mission for years to come, we’re holding a special Indiegogo fundraiser with some awesome merchandise, apparel, and perks.

When we first opened the Catfe Lounge in October 2015, we were unclear about how the community would perceive us. Since that time, Ferndale Cat Shelter has adopted over 1,000 cats and kittens to forever loving homes! Through the Catfe, volunteers have logged thousands of hours of community service and the Catfe hosts a broad range of activities from exercise classes to art shows to a children’s reading group to meditation therapy.

Here on our third anniversary, we reflect on our accomplishments and look ahead to the future. In celebration of this success and in anticipation of many more adoptions and community events ahead, we are launching a special fundraiser. In 2019, we hope to expand programs that serve our community of homeless cats and the people who love them.

We are offering some brand new shirt designs for Catfé Lounge and our ever-expanding trap-neuter-return (TNR) program that helps community cats. Each perk donor will receive a T-shirt, a sticker for your laptop, and a magnet for your car. It’s a bundle of goodies for you or your favorite cat-lovin’ human.

Check out our fabulous new swag and support the programs you value on!
