Vancouver's first cat café has opened its doors, and to roaring (er, meowing) success.
Catfé is part coffee shop, part foster home for about a dozen felines in the International Village Mall in the city's Chinatown.
The cats spend their time hanging out with customers, or they climb scratching posts and shelves to their heart's content.
When the animals need a break, they can pop into a cats-only back room for some refuge.
They've been so busy, that staff — known as "purristas," naturally — are recommending reservations for anyone planning a visit this month.
In cat news (because that's the news we all really want), a cat cafe is opening Monday. In other news, life is good. pic.twitter.com/0CGCFA8lRf— Kamil Karamali (@CBCKamil) December 13, 2015
