They’re springing up all over the world! Cat Lounges, or Cat Cafes, a place where cats can live in peace and harmony, often times with a good book or a cup of tea.
Heather Staggs, Winchester, Indiana entrepreneur, and owner of Home Health Angels, visited Japan last year and came home determined to start her own lounge for cats in need of a home. Using the building at the front of her health care business, she was only one of 33 Cat Lounges in America when she first opened her doors and today that number has risen to over 120.
Staggs says that in Japan people consider cats to be lucky but because houses are small cats are often left at cafes so they can be enjoyed and cared for. Some Cat Lounges are so popular that reservations need made to even go in for a snuggle! Imagine!
What an ingenious and loving way to handle the unwanted cat population in the world. Have a cup of tea, or glass of wine, grab a book and cozy up with a kitty that needs some TLC. It will be good for both of you!
If you’re interested in learning more about Winchester’s Cat Lounge make your reservation now for an evening with me, and some gorgeous cats, on September 25th at 6:00pm. I’ll be discussing my latest release in the AMI Series, The Greysons, plus there will be a Question & Answer and Book Signing opportunity afterwards. All 3 books in the series will be available for purchase.
The kitty’s and I look forward to seeing you on the 25th!
Until we read again…📚
