Cat Cafes: The Feline Sensation That's Sweeping the Nation

Have you always wanted to go to a cat cafe? Have you always wondered what a cat cafe really is? Well, the time is now for both of those things as these feline-centric coffee shops are popping up all over the country. What is it exactly? Well, it’s just what it sounds like: a café where you can go and play with cats. Some call it crazy, some call it genius. The best part of the whole thing is that, in most cases, these cats are up for adoption and are getting a chance at a new home. This craze started in Japan and came over to the United States in 2013. Below is a list of a few of the cat cafes around the country. Don’t see a location near you? Check out Eater.com for a definitive list of existing and upcoming cat cafes! Make sure to pay attention to the rules of each café, as many have varying age restrictions.

Crumbs & Whiskers: Georgetown, Washington, D.C.

Cost: $10 per hour Monday-Friday, $12 per hour Saturday and Sunday

This is D.C.’s first cat café, which opened only a few weeks ago thanks to an ambitious cat lover and Kickstarter. All cats in the cafe are available for adoption through the Washington Humane Society. While the menu is small, coffee and desserts are provided by Georgetown Bites, a café across the street. On top of that, the shop offers a wide variety of cute t-shirts and cards, with all proceeds going to the upkeep of the cafe.

Puppies do the 'Shake' in Photographer's New, Adorable Book

Hans, Boxer Pit Mix, 12 weeks (By Carli Davidson)

While we're in the midst of all things terrifying and beastly with the live zombie cam and Beastly Nights, we thought it would be good to take a break and feature something cute. And Carli Davidson's new book Shake Puppies is perfect for just that! You can pick up your own copy here, but we've got a sneak peek for you.

The book features about 70 puppies and Davidson photographed about 100 - each puppy requiring about an hour of photo shoot time.

"Shake Puppies was inspired by my friend Hanna Ingrams’s second grade class," Davidson said. "I showed the students a test presentation for Shake the day before it released, and their reaction was so moving that I decided to ask my favorite audience and professional connoisseurs of all out joy—kids—for a critique. What did they want to see? Their response: puppies and colors!"

Too Cute Tuesday: Germany’s First Walrus Pup is Born

 

On June 15, an adorable, whiskered male walrus pup was born at Hamburg’s Hagenbeck Zoo. But this isn’t an ordinary walrus pup.

Why? Because he is the first and only walrus to be born in Germany. The zoo’s website states that this group of walruses (the pup’s mother and enclosure mates) came to them about a year ago from the Moscow Zoo to fulfill the dream of Tierpark Hagenbeck to host the only walrus breeding group in Germany. And their dreams have come true! This little guy doesn’t have a name yet, but it will be decided by zoo visitors.
