Japan, and now California, are known to have quaint, cozy cafes for people to go and read, drink coffee, do some work and… cuddle with kittens.
Rebecca Gray, an entrepreneur from Austin, has been working towards bringing this kind of business to our very own city and she may just be on the right track. According to Austin Business Journal, Gray received an email from an Lawson Pedder saying they are ready to help her find the right place to open her business.
Gray believes that opening a Cat Cafe in Austin will not only make cafe-goers more happy and relaxed, but that this could be a great tool to linking Austin animal rescue organizations with Austinites who are looking to possibly adopt a cat… or maybe someone who never even thought of owning a cat but won’t be able to resist all of the furry cuteness.
