    Default San Francisco's First Cat Cafe Is In the Works

    Get excited San Francisco, you're getting your first cat cafe. Eater SF reportsthat KitTea will be part teahouse and part cat playhouse, with some 10 cats living at the cafe at any given time. Apparently inspired by similar cafes in Asia and Europe, owners Courtney Hatt and David Braginsky are currently scouting spaces and navigating DOH regulations before getting the cat cafe up and running for a Summer 2014 opening.
    Unlike the Pets Deli that recently opened in Germany, KitTea is not exactly a cafe for cats. The basic idea is that while patrons enjoy their tea and snacks, they can also interact with the cats that live at the cafe. KitTea is hoping to also be able to facilitate cat adoptions, should a patron decide they'd like to take a cat to go. No menu has been set yet, but as of now Braginsky and Hatt plan to serve "a streamlined menu of organic teas from a local provider" and "a combination of Asian and American snacks" like mochi and chocolate truffles.

    Half of me feels bad for the cats, half of me wants to go there immediately.

    They opened a cat cafť in Paris in September/October, but it's so difficult to make a reservation, I still haven't had time to go.

    I hear ya. But we've given up worrying about cat-ass-trophy in our house, it's beyond any human ability to control at this point. Hey, we're still alive!

    I do wonder how the health dept. will handle this.

    I can only imagine the smell of cat piss wafting upon the air when it opens. And I'm okay with cats (don't love them, but don't hate them either). But then again, I hate when people bring their dogs to outdoor patios at restaurants, so I'm obviously not in the target market for this.

    A good odor absorbing litter and perhaps a sprinkle of litter freshener combined with regular changes and you won't smell a thing. If you can smell pee then someone is being a lazy sod and not taking care of things, just the same as if a human went three days without flushing after using the loo.

    Kathie I've given up too lol. I've woken up with cat butt in my face, paws dangling in my mouth, getting my nose rasped when they decided that their hooman needed a wash... Hell, I've probably eaten enough cat hair to be in danger of hairballs and if smoking it could get you high I'd be in a permanent haze.

    Fair enough. Just my overactive imagination talking. I know plenty of cat owners who keep their houses very clean and regularly change the litterbox. I've also been to houses (often ones for sale) where you can immediately tell they keep animals without even seeing them.
