My name is Jamie, 42 years old and most of my background is in hospitality. I worked in the coffee industry for about 20 years. I was kung fu teacher for a little while. I moved form Australia in 2013 to Dubai. I had been living in Dubai on and off till it just got to the point where I want me and my family to not get trapped inside air conditioning all the time. It was the time for us to move to Bali to have fresh water, a bit of greenery, and some nature.

Me and my wife always thought about setting up a retreat somewhere where people could come like a reset button on their life. We always wanted a place where someone like that could go and just focus on getting healthy and better again. Turns out that Bali is the capital of the world for that, especially in Ubud. That is why we have a business providing for facility to do some retreat in Ubud, Naya Ubud.

My name is Julie and I am from France. I moved to Bali when I was 13 years old with my family. I have always been a huge animal lover. Since I was 13 when we first went to Bali I started picking up animals in streets already like puppies and kittens.

I found puppy first time in a river when I was cycling with my friend. I took her home. Then after that quite often I would find kittens in the streets, brought them home, found homes for them and it’s just something that never ended.

One time I traveled to Japan and visited the cat cafes there. It was amazing and I thought I should open cat cafes here also in Bali. So, I came back and did a lot of research to do it. I was working at that time so I quit my job to focus more on working with animals.

The objective of the café is really a boarding facility for it to run by itself. So I would like to not rely on relations anymore to help the kittens.
