For all you feline lovers out there, good news waits around the corner in 2019. affoGATO Cat Cafe, Cleveland's first such establishment, will open its doors on Jan. 2, 2019, in the former Lilly's space in Tremont (761 Starkweather).

What is a cat cafe? Here's their mission in their own words:

We provide a safe home for adoptable cats. You can then pay a small cover charge to relax, work, and enjoy coffee and snacks with these friendly felines. We will partner with several local businesses and artists in order to host fun, unique events and produce food, drinks, and merchandise.

We’re more than a cafe. We strive to be the heart of our community by bringing together cats, people, and businesses for the benefit of all. As such, we also hope to expand to additional community services and outreach programs in the near future.

And here's the grand opening announcement, with exactly as many cat puns as you'd expect:

We are happy to announce that affoGATO Cat Cafe will open on Wednesday, January 2, 2019!

Thank you so much to our family, friends, and community! We have accomplished so much thanks to your support, and we are excited to finally open our doors.

We’re moving cats in tomorrow, so keep an eye on our social media (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter) for some pics and videos of the big event! We will also update our cat profiles once we get to know our new friends!

GoFundMe donors, keep a close eye on your emails for the next several days, we will be sending some important info about getting your final purrks! We will also be launching public reservations for everyone starting sometime next week, and will make an announcement here on our blog and on social media.

Finally, if you’re still looking for the purrfect gift for the cat-lover in your life, we have gift cards available online, which can be used for coffee, snacks, and merchandise in the cafe, or to make lounge reservations once they’re available.

Enjoy your Pawliday Season, and we’ll see you in the Mew Year!
Make a reservation and find more info at their site.

We’re keeping you informed…
...and it’s what we love to do. From local politics and culture to national news that hits close to home, Scene Magazine has been keeping Cleveland informed for years.

It’s never been more important to support local news sources, especially as we all deal with the ramifications of the coronavirus pandemic. Almost everything Scene is about -- our stories, our events, our advertisers -- comes down to getting together. With events on hold, and no print distribution for the foreseeable future, every little bit helps.

A free press means accountability and a well-informed public, and we want to keep our unique and independent reporting available for many, many years to come.

If quality journalism is important to you, please consider a donation to Scene. Every reader contribution is valuable and so appreciated, and goes directly to support our coverage of critical issues and neighborhood culture. Thank you.
