OMG, San Francisco Is Getting a Cat Cafe

Very important cat news: San Francisco is apparently getting a cat cafe, cleverly named KitTea. Try not to crash Kayak booking your plane tickets all at once!

SFist says the founders (both from the tech world) want to create a space that's "part 'gourmet tea house' and part 'cat and human oasis,'" where people can "interact with cats and other cat enthusiasts." They plan to adopt from local shelters, and will cap the number of cats present at any time at 10.

The goal is to open in 2014, though the founders are still searching for space: "We are hoping to lease a minimum of 1,600 square feet, this would allow 30-35 people in the cat space at a time, the space will never be crowded, or chaotic." There will also be a cats-only room for the feline entertainment to retreat to—maybe that's where they'll stash the litterboxes to avoid trouble with the health inspector?


In the meantime, I highly recommend following this cat cafe on Instagram. So not the same, but it'll have to do for now.

Cat cafe! My friend visited one in Japan and said it was weird, but amazing. It'd be cool if they were shelter cats or something and people could contact the shelter to adopt one if they bonded with a fuzzy.
