Back when I first decided I wanted my own club, I decided to name it Stray Catz Club. I had bought things for the club, set it up, but never officially launched it. Every place I moved after that, I brought Stray Catz with me, with new appearances for each location it moved to. I never had any DJs for it, and I didn’t know how to stream music, so I never really got it off the ground.
I did have periodic events for friends and family, but there was no DJ for it, just dancing to whatever stream we decided to play. Only one time did we have a live performer as a special event for my birthday. Aside from that, it was just friends getting together to dance and have a good time.
Then, in June of 2016, I started looking into becoming a DJ myself, and trying to get my club going again. My wife and Mistress, Lola Darkwolf, gave me the extra kick I needed to get things going, and I rebuilt Stray Catz as Darkwolf Lounge. I started small on my sim, with a handful of regulars. There were times it was empty and times that we were nearly to capacity. No matter what the crowd size, it was always fun to do my Saturday afternoon sets.
It wasn’t until moving to Chi Tau City that things really began to pick up for the club. I tried to keep the atmosphere mostly the same as I wanted back when I first thought of having a club, but being located on a sim devoted to sex, there were bound to be some significant changes along the way.
Unfortunately, one of those changes was the breakup of myself and Lola. While we are still friends, there is some discomfort there with the association of Darkwolf to a sim as heavily focused on sex as it is. So, it was decided to return the club back to a variation of its original name. This time, it is known as Stray Cat Lounge.
It isn’t easy to change everything, as we would want to get the membership of the group switched over, so we are still making announcements in both groups, and hoping to transition people over over time. It is a disappointment to have to do it, but at the same time, returning to the Stray Cat name does seem like a good idea overall.
