australia's first cat cafe

Here's the truth: being a crazy cat dude or dudine just isn't the same when you don't have a furry fellow to call your own. Surfing the interwebs for feline funnies is a pretty excellent way to wile away the day, and donning kitty-themed duds will bare your bonkers-cat-lady badge loud and proud, but sometimes all you want is to wind down after a strenuous week with a cuppa in one hand and a tabby furball in the other.

If your life is sadly devoid of said furball, and you happen to reside in the Garden State, we have a little tidbit that may brighten up your day: a cat café may be opening in Melbourne's CBD very soon. Yup, you heard right. Taking a leaf out of Japan's book, the clever pair Anita and Myles Loughran are in the process of setting up Australia's very first moggy mecca, where you can sip a brew surrounded by rescue cats, any old time you want.

They need a little help to make it a reality, so if a cat café sounds like your dream come true, head over to their crowd-funding page and lend a hand (or paw).
