Tucked into the corner on the second story of a shopping mall between Gastown and Chinatown in Downtown Vancouver, there sits a cat cafe fittingly called Catfe.
Catfe opened its doors as Vancouver’s first cat cafe back on December 14, 2015. According to their website, “Catfe is part cafe, part foster home for cats, and a community gathering space for cat lovers of Vancouver in need of some quality kitty time.”
Since opening about a year and a half ago, Catfe has already adopted out nearly 400 cats! All cats at the cafe are from the BC SPCA.
Have you ever visited a cat cafe? If you’re a cat lover, the answer may very well be yes. But have you ever visited a mobile cat cafe? I’d like to introduce you to Moon Cat Cafe, the first ever mobile cat cafe!
Last year, I shared with you Episode 6 from the “Shelter Me” series, which I thoroughly enjoyed watching. So, I was excited when I recently had the opportunity to watch the latest episode of the national PBS show “Shelter Me: Community Matters”.
On a picture-perfect, clear blue sky day, with the aroma of kettle corn filling the air, a young child runs up to a book display, pointing at the book cover and shouting back to her parent in tow – “A kitty, a kitty!” This scene played out numerous times this past weekend, where I had the privilege of attending the Orange County Children’s Book Festival with my friend, author Jaimi Ilama.
Jaimi was stationed in an author booth, where she sold and signed her book, The Upstairs Cat, for her new adoring fans, and I was Jaimi’s steadfast booth buddy. But I brought more to the table than just my payment processing skills. I provided signs for the children to hold and pose with in front of…you guessed it…cats and kittens!
Remember Me Thursday takes place this year on September 22, 2016. It is a day to remember that there are orphan pets in shelters and rescues who are waiting for their forever homes – and also to remember those who never made it out of the shelters.
Here at Three Chatty Cats, we strive to promote and support cat rescues and adoptions by highlighting rescue groups, sharing adoption stories, and showcasing individuals who do their part to help cats in need. So, we want to do our part in supporting this special day, Remember Me Thursday, by continuing to bring attention to shelter cats waiting for their forever homes. Now, let’s learn more about Remember Me Thursday! Continue reading “Let’s Shine a Light for #RememberMeThursday”→
