America’s First Cat Café Opens: Drink Coffee Alongside Adorable Cats

Yesterday, America’s first cat café opened in New York City. Cat lovers, you now have only three more day to sip coffee and eat pastries alongside adorable cats! Purina One teamed up with the North Shore Animal League, the country’s largest no-kill shelter, to create this pop-up café that’s the temporary home to rescue cats. While the concept of a cat café has been around for a while, with Asia and Europe leading the way, this is the first time one has opened in the United States. Two permanent cat cafés are scheduled to open in San Francisco this year.

The concept is simple. Visitors pay an hourly fee or cover charge to sit and lounge with cats. This one, on 168 Bowery, is free. Sixteen cats roam the premises and you’re welcome to pick one up and snuggle with it. If you fall in love with a particular one, you can even adopt it! (Read about each individual cat, here. Looks like “Sushi” is featured in the photo, above.) To get your feline fix, stop by the store from 10a to 7p each day till April 27. If you’d like to learn a little something, you can listen to different cat experts talk about cat health and behavior. The store’s capacity is limited to just 65 people, so you may have to wait in line.

big cats and wolves are the greatest because they act like house cats and dogs respectively and it’s adorable

like they’ll be on the prowl and there’s no prey around, so then all of a sudden it’s time to play

big cats even like boxes.

although really i do think sansa - considering the events of the second half of sos and the events of ffc - could find herself on the iron throne, once all is said and done

if only because the people who would put here there would know that she’s really well-suited for the role of queen: she’s kind, compassionate, strong, brave, sociable, and a proper lady (which is actually really important here).

petyr is teaching her how to play the game - and play it well - and he could very well orchestrate it so that she ends up on the iron throne (i don’t think she could really get there on her own, but if she does get there, she could definitely hold her own at this point)

and i mean let’s face it

with everyone else vying for the crown, the people would love someone like sansa on there

okay so apparently they didn’t have an extra spot in this exchange so if anyone drops out i’ll be given the spot (which y’know, if it happens at all, will happen in like fuckin’ august or something)

but like

she said this like “well i was going to tell you if they’d gotten a spot” and it’s like no???? i don’t care that it’s not really news; i should’ve been told this sooner???? jfc

no but actually because dragons are a symbol of the lord of the light and white walkers/Others are supposed to be like minions of the god of darkness

it could actually end up with all humans dead

and idk the whole “Others can only be killed with the power of a dragon/volcanic rock” thing

and i mean amarielah said it could very well come down to a battle between the two, and another one of my friends said that he thinks the series will end in a showdown between the lord of the light and the god of darkness

basically grrm is going to do something completely random and fucked up to end this series but i hope it’s dragons

i mean they would bide their time and then when the number of humans is dwindling, just kill the rest of them as vengeance for the extinction of their species at the hands of humans.

and yeah there you go

you could also have jon and dany as the last humans alive and in that case you know grrm would have jon secretly be a targaryen so there could be weird incestuous sex while the dragons and white walkers battle it out for the fate of the world.

i really would not put it past him

oakttree:

This is a list I made for YALSA’s The Hub on the wide range of YA literature featuring LGBTQ characters. See the full post and a downloadable pdf here

i’d add

  • what happened to lani garver
  • empress of the world
  • born confused

still confused as all shit as to how perks qualifies as “historical”, because it was set four years before it was written??? and it’s the 90s?? so it’s not even like it was written intentionally to be set twenty years ago???? (also i would not recommend that book for lgbtq characters because there are exactly two (i think) - one secondary-to-major and one tertiary at best (maybe there’s another mentioned in passing) - and their histories (spoiler: like everyone else in the fucking book) are shrouded in sexual assault and physical abuse soooOOooo)

i liked will grayson will grayson though
