On October 25, 2014, Cat Town Café will become the first permanent cat café in the United States. Operated by the Cat Town rescue group in Oakland, California, the café will adhere to US standards by having the cats and the actual café in separate rooms. Visitors can hang out with the kitties by either making a donation ($10 per hour) or making a purchase at the café. All the cats will be rescues available for adoption.
The Cat Town group has traditionally focused on harder-to-adopt animals, but states that their goal here is to help animals that might not be harder to place, but would otherwise be competing for space at the open-admission Oakland shelter. They hope that through this method, the cats that are at the main shelter will also be helped, as individuals receive more attention and care from shelter volunteers and staff.

It’s October! Black cats are often associated with being spooky, but this means they have a negative stereotype associated with them.
Some people take the color of the cat into heavy consideration when looking for a new companion. This also goes for dogs! It’s a sad fact that black dogs and cats have a hard time finding homes.
To celebrate the awesomeness of black kitties, we would like to do a little showcase of black adoptable kitties! We also want to adopt to some shelters that are taking care of black kitties!
If you would like to nominate a kitty, please reblog with a link, or email us at email@example.com
