You love cats. You love yoga. You love coffee after yoga.
Then you will simply adore Crumbs & Whiskers, L.A.s first Cat Cafe. Since my daughter declares she is half cat, with her own language and all, we decided to reserve two yoga mats on Sunday.
Yes, you do yoga while Cheddar the orange tabby meanders through your warrior pose, Calvin the catnip lover crawls under your bridge, and Dot dreams about mice in her custom-designed yurt. Then you ‘cuddle cats, drink lattes, and wonder if this is real life’.
Best part? All of the cats are available for adoption! Located at 7924 Melrose Avenue, Crumbs & Whiskers, in partnership with Karma Rescue, have faciitated over 250 adoptions. Owner Kanchan shares,
I had finally found my dream project – a way to intertwine conscious business, animal welfare, and design. I didn’t know if this would work and I was honestly scared out of my mind, but I knew I believed in the idea. I just HAD to give it a shot.
We are so glad she did. A purrfect way to spend a Sunday morning, indeed.
From the Crumbs & Whiskers website:
Improved lives for shelter cats:
Crumbs & Whiskers fosters cats until they are adopted out, which means these cats can be removed from shelters and placed into a comfortable, nurturing, and fun environment until they meet their furrever human. If the cat isn’t adopted, no problem – we’re not letting her return to the shelter. We’ll take care of her for as long as it takes her to find a home.
By reinventing the way people connect with rescue cats, Crumbs & Whiskers helps shelter cats gain more exposure and find their forever homes. By fostering cats, C&W also helps create more space in shelters that tend to be overcrowded, which enables those shelters to help even more cats!
