RATS and cats aren’t famous for their strong friendship, however this New York cafe en’tails’ peace and harmony between the furry animals. The Brooklyn Cat Cafe located on Atlantic Avenue has recruited two rodents, Emile and Remy, to help care for young orphaned kittens.
Cafe Owner, Anne Levin says that it started when a kitten came in who tested positive for leukemia. That kitten couldn’t be around the rest of the cats, so they brought in a rat to act as a surrogate to keep the kitty company.
Though the young kitten passed away, the rats were such a hit that the cafe decided to bring in more. They make great companions for the kittens, and give the nursing mamas a break from all that kitty playtime.
Even if you aren’t a fan of cats, you have to admit this is pretty darn adorable. Take a look!
There are cats of all ages at the cafe, and most are adoptable. Not sure if the rats are up for adoption, but I’m glad they’ve all found a place in Brooklyn to call their own.
