What caused the shut down?
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
In November of 2019, my investor/partner was hospitalized with a serious bacterial infection and nearly died. Upon discharge after 7 weeks in the hospital, he and his wife decided it was time he focus on family and made the decision to shut down Creative Product Development dba CatsOnDeck. Since the modular concept was mine, I did not want to see this product fade away. After all, we sold over two million dollars worth of kits to over 1,380 customers. AND, not one complaint! So I cut agreements giving me total rights and control regarding product, name, methodology and patent. I set a course to raise investment funding and restart operations. There are no outstanding debts to Creative Product Development or the original investor.

I started almost immediately to establish a new company (CatsOnDeck llc) legally, develop the business plan and financial projections, aplus many many weeks researching the the thousands of Venture Capitalists, Angel Investors, and financial loan groups to select those with preferences that best matched our posture. Covid hit at the beginning of this in April of 2021 and slowed everything to an absolute crawl. I'm happy to say that I have been sending out info in batches, and just now starting to receive messages from some who have expressed interest and asking for more information.

That's kinds hard to answer. I've been down this road before with other entreprenurial efforts. Sometimes it happens quickly, and other times it take a lot longer than anticipated. You just never know because so many things can effect timelines. In this case Covid was a big factor on slowing the process. Who knows if something else will occur that could put another bump in the road. .

Will there be additional pproducts?

Absolutely! We intend to take our patented modularity into enclosures for other animals, and develop other unique products for the pet marketplace.
