Cat Café Pops Up in Chinatown

You have until Sunday to check out the kitties and the coffee at "Catfe."

Went for coffee and think you saw a pussycat? You're probably right.
This weekend in Chinatown, a pop-up "Catfe" is making its debut and conducting a fundraiser through Kickstarter. Aimed at creating a permanent home for the restaurant/shelter hybrid, Catfe was started by Carlos Wong, after he spent time traveling through and living in Tokyo, Japan. 
The purpose of the shop is to benefit the community and allow them to connect with the animals, said Wong. The cats can not only be groomed and played with but also adopted out of the actual shop.
Catfe aims to find its permanent home in Little Tokyo here in L.A. With several sponsors and a fundraising goal of $250,000, it has a ways to go. Catfe will be open at 727 N Broadway until Sunday evening. 

The URL I posted is the actual Kickstarter Link. :)
