cat cafe


Edmonton might soon be taking a page out of the book of Montreal and Vancouver and establish a cat café in the city. Toronto’s cat cafe attempt has kind of fizzled out … due to health code concerns.


Chanel Lethbridge, who’s actually a former humane society employee, says she wants to open a cat café with either a downtown or Whyte Avenue location to help bring the cats to the people.

Lethbridge says she got the idea to start a cat café after she wasn’t able to have an pet in her rented apartment. Some of the health codes in Edmonton might prove to be a bit of a road block for a feline friendly coffee house, but Lethbridge is pretty confident she can work around it.
