If all goes according to plan, San Francisco’s first new cat cafe, KitTea, will finally allow the floodgates to open for cat lovers in the city to play with kewt adoptable kittehs.
Like Oakland’s Cat Town, the point of KitTea is to help adoptable cats find their way into loving homes by way of letting the cats and potential owners interact in a friendlier, less stressful environment. KitTea has also partnered with Petco Foundation and local nonprofit Give Me Shelter to make the cafe possible.
As SF Eater reports, the space in Hayes Valley where the cafe will be is still being assembled, but founders Lisa Tsubouchi and Courtney Hatt hope to open it up at some point this April. The first felines in the space will be only kittens (calm down) because consultants believe they’ll adapt to the space easier, but gradually they’ll accept more adult cats in an effort to adopt them out to new owners.
For now, you can sign up to volunteer at the cafe.
No word on if they’ll let you move in there, but our guess is probably not.
