As previously reported in the Jan. 14 Georgetowner, D.C.’s first cat cafe is coming to the neighborhood. Crumbs & Whiskers, owned by Kanchan Singh, has applied for a zoning ruling – “to establish an animal boarding use for cats” – from the Board of Zoning and Adjustment. The feline-focused facility hopes to open this summer in the former Georgetown Clairvoyant Center at 3211 O St. NW. No food will be made at the cafe, which will have food arrangements with nearby eateries.
Crumbs & Whiskers, it promises, “will serve as a foster home for the Washington Humane Society’s shelter cats and as a really fun place to hang out for D.C. residents. The concept is pretty simple. Cats in cages are sad, so we get them out of there. Anyone without a cat is sad (or should be), so we hook them up. Then, we give everybody desserts and coffee and tea.”
