Crumbs & Whiskers, Washington DC’s First Cat Cafe, Will Open its Georgetown Doors to the Public June 20: All Felines Vetted and Vaccinated by the Cafe’s Partner, the Washington Humane Society

Crumbs & Whiskers, Washington DC’s first cat cafe, will open its Georgetown doors to the public June 20 after a successful Kickstarter campaign raised twice as much as the owner expected.

Owner Kanchan Singh plans several pre-grand opening parties to thank those Kickstarter supporters.

Crumbs & Whiskers, at 3211 O St. NW, will have about two dozen felines in residence at a time, all vetted and vaccinated by the cafe’s partner, the Washington Humane Society.

Why would you go to a cat cafe?

A boyfriend who’s allergic to cats, stress relief or just the desire to enjoy a cat’s company without the responsibility of owning one, Singh’s Kickstarter pitch suggests.

She also says the cats have a much better chance of being adopted in an environment like this than they would in cages at the Humane Society.

Singh signed a lease for the O Street space in April and spent the last two months going through the permit and building process.

The Crumbs & Whiskers Kickstarter campaign had an original goal of $15,000, and raised almost $36,000 from more than 700 backers.
