Cats on cats on cats: First permanent cat cafe might come to NYC

Written by

Remember that wonderful time in April when Purina One opened a pop-up cat cafe in NYC and made furball fans everywhere melt with delight? Well that, our feline-loving friends, could be permanent! We're not "kitten" you, guys. Little Lion just started a crowdfunding campaign for the very first cat tea house (or should we say "purr"adise?) and if they reach their goal of $65,000, New Yorkers everywhere will be able to enjoy quality cat time on the daily.

Little Lion founder Erin McShane plans to partner with Anjellicle Cats Rescue and Animal Care and Control to take in 10-20 cats and kittens for what would become a New York-based cafe/shelter. McShane told Gothamist she wants to create a safe space for cats in a city so hectic there's often no time for pets, as well as create hub for cat-lovers who (in many circumstances) can't adopt a kitten of their own. If Little Lions reach their goal, we can expect the permanent tea house to open in Spring of 2015. In the meantime, head to a film festival all about cats or continue musing ("meow"sing?) about the perfect adorable cat scenario. We'll leave you with this photo of a cat lying on books (because cats are smarter than you).
