Ever wonder how all those kitteh selfies got on your iPhone? Wonder no more.

Chia Pets are usually something to run into CVS late on Christmas Eve to buy, for someone you guess you have to give a present to. (Either a CP or…a Whitman Sampler.) But I tell you what- I will take one of THESE Chia Pets any day of the week!

Most doggehs like to go on walks, or flop over for belleh rubs, stuff like that. Chubs, however, has something BETTER in mind.
A.J.M. has alerted us to a new Cat Café (that’s their name) in Southern California! “Just wanted to let you know my locale now has a Cat Café, one of the few in the U.S. This fearless C.O. investigator will be on the prowl Monday to submit a hot off the press report with pictures and maybe some video. [*Note: That will be Part II.) Here’s a link to an article in our local paper that alerted me to this wonderful news.”

The cats are adoptable, with the fees going to the San Diego Humane Society, the kitteh supplier.
Standard CC layout, with coffee and muffins on one side, and the kitehs on the other, so the Board of Health doesn’t get cranky.
“We’ve only had our adoptable cats in here for two weeks and we’ve adopted out seven already,” CC owner Tony Wang told C.O. Friday. “The last three adoptions were for cats who had only been here a day. Two were black cats and one was a senior cat, and those kinds of cats are the toughest to adopt out.”
“I’ve been stunned by the traffic we’re getting in here. I planned for a gradual, slow ramp up but we’ve gotten so much business that I’ve had to adapt to a lot higher level of business than I expected!”
“The adoptions are really what make me work hard. I could make a lot more money with a lot less work doing something else, but it wouldn’t be as rewarding as finding homes for adoptable animals and literally changing lives!”

Boy, I’d love to snorgle this furball. If you’re in the area—what about you? “Meet George, a very handsome adult male who is available for adoption. George is currently staying at Pet Supplies Plus in West Chester, PA. He is available through Forgotten Cats. George is a volunteer favorite. He is cheerful and playful, gets along well with other cats, and he loves to be held!” -Anne M. (Forgotten Cats volunteer.)
