A cafe in Australia gives diners the chance to play with up to 15 cats while waiting for their desserts and it has helped more than 80 cats find a home.
The MeowMe Cat Cafe in West Lakes, Australia, partnered with volunteer group Paws & Claws Adoptions to help find caring homes for displaced cats.
“We want to try and help the rescued animals as much as possible,” cafe owner Yvonne Wong says.
“In the cafe, we have a lot more traffic than a lot of these adoption shelters so it is much easier to get people in to meet the cats.”
Since opening its doors, more than 80 cats have been adopted.
“People are able to really interact and get to know which cat they want to adopt as they have more time with them,” Wong said. “We don’t want people to commit to adopting a cat just by a picture, actually come in and get to know them.”
