Toronto's first cat cafe opening next month

In a few weeks time we'll finally declare a winner in the race to open Toronto's first cat cafe. And, it's run by a feline-friendly team that pounced up from behind us.

Despite the crowd-funding campaigns that put Smitten Kitten/Kitty Cat Cafe and Pet Me Meow on our radar, TOT the Cat Cafe quietly marked its territory on a storefront at College and Spadina.

By mid-September, cat enthusiasts will be able to stop by for a warm beverage and a snack before entering a glass enclosed space to play with a bevy of furry friends. "If no one wants to interact with cats, it's still a cafe," assures company spokesperson Brian Best.

While the details aren't firmed up yet, Best says TOT's owners hope to act as sort of a foster home for cats and they want to use the cafe to help raise awareness for the Toronto Humane Society.
