It’s nothing new that San Francisco is three steps ahead of far-flung Seattle. Here’s a look at what is coming next for us, by the way.
It goes to follow that in a city environment where simple joys like cleaning your own personal cat box are harder and harder to find, Seattle will soon follow on this planned San Francisco cafe, too:
Christened KitTea, founders Courtney Hatt and David Braginsky describe their venture as “part ‘gourmet tea house’ and part ‘cat and human oasis.'”
The goal is to provide homeless cats a place to call home. Also, to bring humans and cats together in perfect harmony. According to the website, the cafe plans on opening this Spring. What’s important to note is that, as of now, it’s all in the preliminary planning stages.
UPDATE: Purrfect timing. E Pike venue Ltd. Art Gallery is planning a CATZ! art show.
UPDATE 3/4/14: The fundraising campaign for KitTea — “San Francisco’s first cat tea house” has launched with a $50,000 goal.
