The location was previously a cat café, but many visitors said they wanted to also spend time with kittens. So the space closed and is reopening as Crumbs & Whiskers.
“When people go to shelters, there’s so much guilt…because they see cats in cages, whereas here, they’re living this fabulous life and you just come hang out,” said Kanchan Singh, who has also opened a pop-up kitten lounge in Washington, D.C.READ MORE: Strong Santa Ana Winds Prompt Dust Advisory
