Dear folks and felines! I'm sure rumours are going around already, so here's some big news, officially now:
- Cat shop will have to move. Due to the ongoing beach clearance, Egoiste will need all the space they have on the other side of the beach road to move their restaurant. Therefore we need to move. This was expected so not a big surpice. And the cat shop is still here and open normally, until further notice. We are super grateful for everyone at Egoiste for having us here for these past years! Purr purr purrr!
- There will be a new cat shop right next to Gili Golf. Owners of Gili Palms Resort have given us a piece of land to use for a new cat shop building and they will also help us to build it. The building will have separate rooms for shop and clinic. This way we are all ready to go if there comes a day we have enough funds to hire a vet to work here permanently. (just dreaming here....) And the new shop will have more space for more cat stuff as well as room for some Horses Of Gili merchandise too. We love all animals, after all, and are in this together!
- We desparately need donations to help us cover the costs of the new building. Not sure yet how much it will cost in total, but any donations will help for sure.
- If anyone has any extra building materials, please donate to us! We could use wood, buiding bricks etc. Anyone have any doors they don't need? We need 3 doors! Aircon units (2 needed)! Some furniture (table and chairs)! Shop display stuff!
- We will organize a fundraising event on February 19th at Gili Golf. There'll be a golf tournament, yummy food etc. More info will follow soon.
- restaurant owners in Gili Trawangan: for our fundraising event, we'd like to have great prizes to give. If your place can donate dinners for 2 or such, please contact us asap.
- anyone willing and able to help with building, fundraising etc, please contact us.
- Businesses here in Gili islands: if you want to give a donation to help us get this done, hooray! Contact us for bank account details or if cash, let me know and I'll come collect it!
More detailed info will come soon!
