Axum Coffee Joins Orlando Cat Cafe

The Orlando Cat Cafe is proud to announce that Axum Coffee of Winter Garden, FL has partnered with them to operate the Cafe.  “Axum Coffee is the purrfect partner for us” quips Sandra Cagan, Founder of the Orlando Cat Café. Their vision statement really says it all – ‘Inspire people and generate resources to restore hope in hard places. We’re passionate about excellence in every cup and every opportunity to serve’.

Cagan met with owner Renaut Van Der Riet late last year to present her vision of the Cat Café and the two immediately clicked. “Axum has done so much good for people and this is a chance to expand that outreach to animals”. The two met with members of the Southlake Animal League just before the New Year and it was clear that the synergy of the group was overwhelmingly positive.

The Orlando Cat Café is scheduled to open in late Spring of 2016 and will include a cozy coffeehouse with comfortable furniture, premium coffee, and 12 to 15 cats roaming freely. But if you want to grab your coffee and go, that’s fine as well. The cat café will have its own entrance to comply with any health and food safety compliance guidelines. Between sips, customers will be able to pet and cuddle the critters at will. The area will consist of a 750 square foot cat lounge, a hidden room for litter boxes, with the separate space where Axum baristas prepare coffee and snacks. Plans to serve wine and beer are also in the works.

For more information or to make a contribution to the Orlando Cat Café’s, visit www.orlandocatcafe.com or stay up to date on the café’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/OrlandoCatCafe For more information on South Lake Animal League, visit www.slal.org.

On Saturday, January 14, a group of artists met at the Cagan Crossings Studio of the South Lake Art League to paint Treasure Boxes to bring a smile to the face of a sick child. Some of these “artists” had never painted before, but wanted to contribute to this special project. Instructor, Kathie Camara, provided the painting lesson. Once painted, the boxes were sealed by members of the Art League and a label was attached to the inside of the cover with the Treasure Box Artists name. Then the boxes were transported to one of the many Shriners Hospitals to be given to a child who is in the hospital due to chronic illness or surgery. The Shriners put small toys and trinkets inside the box for the children, and the kids will have a special treasure box to keep their belongings in, thanks to the generosity of a group of Treasure Box Artists who donate their time and talent to bring joy to a child. You, too, can participate in this worthwhile program. For more information and pictures and the date of the next Paint Party, check the Treasure Box page at www.SouthLakeArtLeague.com.
