That's fine, since the cafes supply their own cats.

'I'd rather not,' the Cat remarked.
'Don't be impertinent,' said the King,
'and don't look at me like that!'
He got behind Alice as he spoke.
'A cat may look at a king,' said Alice.

I was afraid we'd lost you.

somehow, I can't help but suspect that cafe has a constant run on their dairy products.

Portland, Oregon can be added to the growing list of cat cafe locations to spring up in North America.

Purringtons Cat Lounge wants to be the first cat cafe to open in North America, ahead of San Francisco's KitTea, Oakland's Cat Town Cafe, and Los Angeles' Catfe. Owner Kristen Castillo plans to partner with the Oregon Cat Project shelter in Lake Oswego and offer three rotating beer taps, tea, coffee, and “a limited variety of snacks” such as popcorn, pickles and beef jerky.

The cafe will feature 10-12 adoptable cats at a time.

“Tokyo has like 100 cat cafes," Castillo says. "They charge you like $10 and you can only stay for an hour and they put a sticker on you so they know how long you've been there. I don't want to do that."

Purringtons Cat Lounge will have a cover charge but visitors can stay as long as they'd like. The lounge is still looking for a location.

Cat Town Cafe Opens in Oakland After Crowdfunding Campaign
posted on 2014-11-04 17:00 EST by Lynzee Lamb

More kitty restaurants planned for Portland, Seattle, Denver

Cat Town Cafe found its permanent homes in Oakland, California after raising US$40,695 via IndieGogo this year. Cat Town has the distinguished title of being North America's first cat cafe. Founders Adam Myatt and Ann Dunn are running what they describe as "an elaborate play area" where customers can order drinks and spend quality time with up to 12 adoptable cats.

All cats are sourced from local shelters, and Dunn herself works with the Cat Town rescue organization. The foster-based organization's focus is to find homes for the "least adoptable" cats.

The IndiGoGo campaign raised US$40,695 of the project's US$60,000, however Pet Food Express stepped into donate an additional US$20,000. Visitors seem excited about Cat Town. Since opening on October 25, the cafe has booked straight through the next three weekends.

More kitty cafes are lined up to open across the U.S. soon. Seattle's Meowtropolitan is looking for a permanent location in the Capitol Hill area with plans to open next year. The "fantasy-themed" cafe plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign next month. Portland, Oregon's Purringtons Cafe found a location with plans to open in January. KitTea was successfully funded and its location in San Francisco is under construction, and Denver Cat Company is also opening soon. Los Angeles' Catfe didn't meet its goal but is still operating as a pop-up restaurant.
