Gift guides, Goodbyes and Great Buys!
Updated: Jul 15
Hello again furriends! This week has been another busy one here at Kitty Café, especially since we received the exciting news of our possible reopening in May.
Speaking of reopening…
The timing of our latest collaboration with Protohype couldn’t be any better! Kitty StyleSHIELD is the pinnacle of 2021 fashion. As we head into a new chapter of this pandemic here in the UK and things start to get back to being somewhat normal, we’ll be out and about more and more often over the coming months. While freedom is on the horizon, it’s unlikely we’ll be parting ways with the face covering just yet, especially when entering indoor premises like our cafés. But thanks to Kitty StyleSHIELD, one thing we can say goodbye to is that classic problem we’ve all related to this past year… forgetting to bring your mask.
Once again, we’ve teamed up with Protohype to bring you an exciting, innovative product, and this time, everyone can get on board! Cat owner or not, we can all admit that this is the ideal solution to a very ‘2021’ problem. Kitty STYLESHIELD is a comfy hoodie available in a huge range of colours, with custom details such as a cute cat face design and sequin ears. However, what truly sets it apart from any other standard hoodie is that it comes with a built-in, matching face covering! Forgotten masks can officially be a thing of the past with this clever garment. Its handy compartment in the hood means you’ll always have a face covering on hand and you can easily tuck it away when it’s not needed. The project is live on Kickstarter right meow and if you pounce quickly you’ll have access to exclusive and limited early bird offers. What are you waiting fur? Get your paws on a bargain!
On the topic of Kickstarter...
If you missed out on our Cat Climber project the first time around, here’s your second chance! We are now LIVE over on Indiegogo which means now’s the time to treat your kitty to the ultimate piece of cat climbing furniture. You can well and truly put the days of scratched furniture and threadbare carpets behind you. Let your cat climb and scratch to its heart’s content with this high quality climbing frame. It’s also available in a range of colours and the best part is they match our Kitty Bowls purrrfectly!
A fond farewell
As you already know, part of our mission is to find our cats the forever homes they deserve, and while saying goodbye to our feline friends is always bittersweet, we always wish them nothing but the best for life beyond Kitty Café. Last week we said goodbye to Luna from our Birmingham Café. She’ll be greatly missed by us and all of our lovely customers but we’re sure she’ll have a pawesome time with her new family!
If you’d like to adopt a cat through us, please check our rehoming site regularly. This is the only channel for official applications, meaning we don't consider requests made through social media. Unless featured on this page, our cats are not currently available for adoption and we won't be able to provide a time frame for when they may be ready. This is due to a number of factors but we primarily take into account what is best for the cats. Please also note that some of the cats listed on our site are being rehomed by the general public or other organisations. To enquire about any of these cats, please use the contact details provided to get directly in touch with their current carers.
Mother's day is just around the corner
Along with the beautiful spring sunshine and warmer weather comes the annual panic we all get when we remember Mother's Day is rapidly approaching… and we still haven’t got a gift. If chocolates, wine and flowers aren’t your cat-loving mum’s thing, we’re sure we can give you some hints on how to get into her good books.
First things first, Mums love afternoon tea. And don’t worry, we’re not suggesting you should whip up a batch of scones and stick the kettle on. We have a much simpler and better solution: gift vouchers. For just £33.95 you can treat your mum to afternoon tea for two when we reopen. We’re talking cakes, scones, sandwiches- the lot. If you’re lucky, maybe she’ll even invite you. So if you think about it, it’s really a gift for yourself!
If you want to go down the more tangible route, slippers are always a good shout. Every mother talks about how she hasn't sat down all day… her poor feet must be suffering! We sell a huge range of comfy cat slippers to help your mum relax at the end of a stressful day. And if you’re wanting to push the boat out and really impress, why not add a pair of cosy pyjamas? We have plenty of styles to choose from.
Next up we have homeware. If your mum is a natural homemaker, she’ll love our home decor. We have something for every room of the house, from oven gloves and cushions to bath mats and bedding. Here are some of our top picks for homely mother’s day gifts:
And that concludes this week's blog post! Now that we've filled you in on all the latest gossip from the café and done you a MASSIVE favour in the Mother's Day department, you may want to do us a favour and give us a quick follow on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest. Seeing as you've read this whole post, we have a feeling you'll enjoy our content on our social media platforms. Plus it will tide you over until next week's catch-up, where we'll be discussing all things cats!
