WHO WE ARE
Convention can be boring. Actually, it's almost always boring...but that’s why we're a cat cafe. We believe cats don't need to live in cages or lose their lives just because they don't have a home, and you sure as hell don't need to be a weird "crazy cat lady" to enjoy some cat cuddles. In fact, we believe crazy cat ladies are cool, rebellious, and fun (yes, this includes crazy cat dudes), and it's time for that stereotype and traditional adoption practices to change.
Enter us. We're a place to snuggle and adopt rescue cats, but with your favorite latte and book in hand. We’re the new-comers to the scene, and, much like your younger sister, the parents are still pretending we’re going to turn out just fine. We probably will, but until then, we’re hoping to rewrite the traditional rules of animal rescues & cafes, overturn common practices in company culture, redefine what it means to be a "crazy cat lady," and re-think adoptions as a whole.
And do it all in style, of course.
