Life gets stressful. So why not slow down, take a “paws,” and have a little purr with your coffee…

Paws & Purr will provide a fun, nurturing and comfortable environment for homeless cats to reside in instead of a traditional shelter setting, and give animal lovers a calm, happy space in which to relax with a great cup of coffee and cuddle adorable felines. Sounds pretty purrrrrrrfect, right?! Yeah, we thought so too. Paws & Purr is excited to be partnering with Kitty Kare Feline Rescue, a not-for-profit organization that saves cats from the City of Thunder Bay Animal Services that are at risk for euthanization. Kitty Kare will ensure that all cats have received veterinary examinations and clean bills of health before being placed with us at the cafe. All Paws & Purr felines will be available for adoption and will enjoy the comforts of the cafe until they find the perfect home. So, you can come in and get your caffeine ‘n kitty fix right meow, and if you fall in love with that purrfect kitty, you can give them their furever home. We are SO EXCITED to be bringing this ameowzing foster/adoption concept to Thunder Bay when we find the purrfect location, and we want to include our community in what is sure to be a fun and exciting journey to opening the city’s first cat cafe! Please explore the website to learn more about us and our plans, shop your heart out in our online store, sign up with your email address to receive future announcements, and please follow us on social media for updates and sneak peeks, kitty cuteness, and an endless supply of cat puns (seriously, we can go all day).
