Waiter, there's a cat in my coffee!

Bloggie friends!

Best news of the past week? London MAY be getting a Cat Cafe!! 

I mean cats + aspiring writers = inspiration and a great cup of catpuccino! Yay! 

Maybe even Charlie and The Gumster may apply for jobs there! I think they'll look super cute in waiter outfits! 

The Gumster says: I blend into the background.


Charlie says: No you don't.


But seriously - this particular Cafe has a serious message and will give shelter cats a place to stay and roam as free as possible! A win win situation! But maybe not for woofies. Ahem.

I promise to catch up with all your gorgeous wonderful lovely blogs asap but do forgive me if I slacken a little! Work is super busy! Have a great week!

The shelter sounds like a great place!
And what Gumster?

Mark said...

That is some wonderful stealth skills there, and excellent news about the cat cafe. I wonder if it will function like an actual Japanese cat cafe though, where people go to spend time with cats.

Best. Idea. Ever.

Fee Roam at the cafe ! Plus free food as well ??
tee...heh...sorry I can only think about FOOD !!!

Cheri Wildcatwoods said...

I would be at the cat cafe everyday!!!! Don't work too hard.

Jemi Fraser said...

What a cool idea! It would be very popular with all kinds of writers!!! :)

mshatch said...

What a great idea! I wish there were more businesses like that :)

Charlie is so clever.

Brian said...

I think Charlie would like to be top cafe cat fur sure!

Rick Watson said...

Charlie would make a great Cat-ista at a coffee house.
Sounds like a great coffee house. You Brits have all the luck :)

Julia Hones said...

Wow, what a great cafe! I'd love to visit it.

Jackee said...

A cafe to help cats. Lovely! London has so many amazing places. No worries about blogging--work takes precedence. Best of luck with it! <3

Manzanita said...

Oh My Goodness, a cat cafe. I wonder if that means you can bring your cat there but cat's don't like to travel, do they? I forgot that cat's are home bodies. Mine won't go outside yet.
The pictures are cute. Gummie hiding behind the flower pot but Charlie isn't shy. It looks like you have buds on your plants in the pots. Getting to be that time again.
Love, Manzie

At least a cat HAIR in your coffee...what FUN!!!

Prancer Pie said...

This is so exciting! Please keep us informed of this, and we would love photos. Have a happy week! xoxo

The Chair Speaks said...

This cat cafe sounds great! Both of you enjoyed the garden outing. Purrs!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

May your work ease up on you. For me, I am facing 11 days in a row as a rare blood courier! Whew!

Love the news about the cat cafe and Charlie looks as bemused and aloof as ever. :-)

Helena said...

What a lovely idea for a cafe! The article is so inspiring I can only hope more cat/ pet cafes pop up everywhere. And if this helps to place shelter cats into homes, all the better.

I hope your job doesn't overwork you this week, Kitty darling.

What a wonderful idea - a cat cafe :-) x

Fuzzy Tales said...

I love the idea of a cat café. It would be fabulous if the idea would catch on in our region too. :-)

Have a great week...I hope busy doesn't mean chaotic and stressful.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Every city needs a Cat Cafe! :)

Hannah and Lucy said...

We love the idea of a Cat Cafe and are sure it will do well - there's nothing more soothing than a purring cat on your lap.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Avalon Cat Cartoons said...

A cat café in London?! What great news! Let us know when it's there and I'll hop onto the Eurostar immediately.

Stephen Tremp said...

What a great idea. In Germany people can take their dogsnin restaurants.

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, I LOVE that idea! I wonder if that's legal in the states. I know some businesses have a pet, but I don't think it's allowed if they serve food. Still, yes... writers and cats and coffee...

Theresa Milstein said...

A cat cafe sounds cute.

We have so much snow here. Where's your snow???

Charlie and Gumpster seem happy without their own cafe.

Good luck during your busy week.



Rene said...

Oh that's so cool--I have heard of cat cafes before. I love the photos of Gumtree and Charlie! Gumtree has to work on his hiding skills!

Debbie said...

Sounds purrfect to me.

Clarissa Draper said...

Cat Cafe sounds fantastic! I wish I could. I would just need to get a cat... and move to where you live...and allergy medication.

Well, have lots of fun!

Lydia Kang said...

Will there be catnip lattes?

Tamago said...

Wow cat cafe! It will be very nice especially for shelter kitties if they are hired! I am sure Charlie and Gumtree will look super cute in waiter outfits :-)
I hope you don't get too busy at work. Have a great week!

Marilia said...

In the first photo I can´t see any cat!!! =)

klahanie said...

Okay, a 'Catfeteria'! Seriously, a good idea behind it all. Even Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar and yes, the next 'Paw Minister' of Britain, concurs.

All the best,

Gary

KarenMcG said...

We're excited for you all that you may be getting a catfe for the kitties.

Looks like someone is getting ready for summer planting!

Norma Beishir said...

A cat cafe--what a great idea!

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

Cat Cafe - what a fantastic idea! Perhaps someday they'll be a 'dog diner' :)

Carol Kilgore said...

A cat cafe is an awesome idea! Don't work too hard. Hi to Gumtree and Charlie :)

William Kendall said...

The kitties look entirely too cute, of course.

We've got a cafe here close to home that caters to pet people. It's a cafe, but mostly for pet supplies and such. Four legged critters are more than welcome inside...

Lynda R Young said...

Oh my gosh!! a Cat Cafe!! How cool!!!!!!! I love it!

ABBY said...

A cat cafe would be so awesome.
Hello Charlie and Gumtree.

Happy Mooooonnnnday!

Madi and Mom said...

Charlie, gum tree and mom
It was very nice to meet you all today and we thank you for stopping by to say hi,

Hugs
Madi and mom

Eileen said...

What an interesting concept! It reminds me of the restaurants in Saint Lucia with resident cats - it's the norm there, not so much here.

Hope work isn't too crazy busy for too long!

April McLeod said...

I've heard about cat cafe's and I think it is a quirky yet fun idea! We're there's a will there's a way for those want to adopt a cat or two! Very interesting! Hope you post pics of the cafe when it opens!

meowmeowmans said...

Oh, man, if we had a cat cafe, we would be there ALL THE TIME. MOL!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

A cat cafe? That's new to me! Sounds like a lovely idea :D

Cezar and Léia said...

Amazing idea! =^.^=
I love the pictures, a feeling of "Spring"is coming soon! :)
purrs and love
Luna - WE LOVE LUNA

LTM said...

Oh, I LOVE the idea of a cat cafe! That's fantastic! I could use a cappuccino right about now... :D <3

Romance Book Haven said...

Yay! For the cat cafe! Sounds awesome to sit and write there - spend some lovely time!

Melody said...

So nice to meet you Charlie!
The cat cafe sounds really neat!

Pk Hrezo said...

Aw that sounds purrrr-fect! lol I know I'm such a geek. *hangs head in shame*

Patsy said...

The cat cafe sounds like it would be a great place for cat lovers who don't have their own pet.

Samantha Vérant said...

Ah, ah, ah! I can just imagine the cat fights... if people brought their own cats in! It is, however, a great idea.

Medeia Sharif said...

I think cat cafes are a great idea. That article is right, there are many people who are unable to have pets. This seems like a solution.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

The cat cafe sounds wonderful! Sorry I haven't been around much, lately...I'm in the final phase of getting my manuscript ready for submission. :)

Marg said...

Oh, that is so exciting about the Cafe, especially since the shelter cats get to hang out there. Do take some pictures for us. Charlie and Gumtree's tail, it sure is good to see you.

Susan Fields said...

Wow, what a cool idea for that cafe! Have a great week, Old Kitty, and I hope work lightens up for you!

Summer Ross said...

<3 your kitties! They are such characters.

The cafe sounds interesting.
I hope you have a terrific Friday!

Katie Isabella said...

I could not be happier to read this and I only wish there were more and more of this type of cafe. Win-win indeed. How wonderful.

C. Lee McKenzie said...

We need one of those cafes in our neighborhood. Can it be franchised? Ask Charlie and see what he says.

The Golden Eagle said...

A cat cafe is an interesting idea--I've never heard of them before. It sounds like it could be a great boon for cats who would otherwise be stuck in cages or euthanized.

Deniz Bevan said...

I wish I was nearby and could visit with you at the Cat Cafe!

m.q said...

hi Charlie n Gumtree
sorry we didnt visit you guys

Tracy Jo said...

A cat cafe! That would be so cool. I love it!!! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

penandpaints said...

That sounds like a brilliant idea! xx

We are said...

That sounds wonderful!!!

I love, love, love that I get to stay at home and write with my fur babies around me, but I'd definitely visit a place like that, too, if we had one! :)

Sandra Cox said...

A cat cafe, how cool is that?

This is EXCITING news indeed!!!
We wish we had one here.
; ) Katie

Katz Tales said...

I love cafes with cats. Love them.

Jennifer Shirk said...

A Cat Café? How cool would THAT be?!

Janet Johnson said...

What a fun idea! And Gumster IS a sneaky one. :)

Sandra Rose Hughes said...

Wow! I live in a rural area in the US- we don't have fancy things like cat cafes. We would be lucky just to have a cafe! We do have an animal shelter, though, and lots of animal lovers in our area. Glad to hear those aristocats in London will be well taken care of.

susanjanejones said...

Bet you'll be in there every day Kitty if you get chance, and Charlie and Gumster of course.

susanjanejones said...

Bet you and Charlie and Gumster will be in there as often as you can Kitty. Don't work too hard.

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

This sounds like a wonderful idea, Jenn. There are so many feral cats in need of shelter
