Crumbs and Whiskers, D.C.’s First Cat Cafe, Opens to Paw-sitive Reception in Georgetown

Cat lovers, rejoice! Crumbs and Whiskers, Washington, D.C.’s first cat cafe, officially opened its Georgetown doors June 20 after months of anticipation.

For a $12 weekend cover charge and signature of a waiver, customers can spend an hour cuddling and mingling with furry friends in the mellow yet modern dwelling, located at 3211 O Street NW. The three-story site houses 20 vetted and vaccinated felines, all of which are up for adoption through partnership with the Washington Humane Society.

The cats are primarily between 1 and 3 years of age, and while some are a bit older, all are equally friendly, loving, and curious.

Crumbs and Whiskers caters to keeping both kitties and customers comfortable by supplying an array of throw pillows and cushions among the cat houses to allow for easier interaction between the two, as well as being stocked with as many mouse toys as there are lint rollers to keep both felines and humans happy.

Patrons can enjoy a selection of light refreshments from coffee and tea to shakes and cookies, which are prepared by Gtown Bites across O Street and delivered to Crumbs and Whiskers upon ordering.

Owner Kanchan Singh believes her business will be a success in finding forever homes for the cats who roam the cafe. The 24-year-old began her initiative as a Kickstarter campaign, which raised more than $35,000 by 700 backers.

Crumbs and Whiskers is open daily and online reservations are encouraged.
