Hi guys. We need to talk about something important. We need to talk about Cat Cafes.

Japan has them. London has one. Germany, Austria, France and Spain all have one or two to their names. WHEN IS CANADA’S TURN??

Well, possibly as soon as this summer if Montreal’s Cafe Chat l’Heureux can get enough interest and funding. After travelling to Asia and experiencing what we can only presume was the pure, raw joy emanating from various Cat Cafes, Clément Marty thought the idea would be beneficial—for people and animals alike—in Montreal. Think about it: animals previously homeless or consigned to life in a shelter would be cuddled and cared for, and YOU’d get to cuddle them! With a latte!

Check out the Cafe’s Facebook page for more info, and their IndieGoGo campaign to donate.
