Matt Lai (official title, according to his email signature, is “Cool Cat”) says cat cafe plans are moving along, but still nascent. He and his two partners are about to launch a round of crowdfunding, which will help determine minor details like the location and the space. Still they’re hoping to be open by mid-2015, preferably somewhere on Capitol Hill.
Nascent, crazy cat lady, so just settle down. There’s not even a Kickstarter yet. But there are cafe designs, logos and even merch on the Seattle Meowtropolitan Facebook page. We’ll keep you posted on any signs this project moves beyond fantasy stage — though with several of the city’s best journalists already on the case, we might not be the ones to break this story. We are, however, hoping it moves in next to Purr.
