cat cafe toronto

Now you can own Toronto's first cat cafe

It may not be all warm and fuzzy at Toronto's first ever feline-friendly coffee shop. TOT the Cat Cafe at 298 College Street is for sale.

The 2,200 square-foot space is currently on the market for $280,000. But don't panic. The cafe's still very much open and it's unclear if it's going to be shutting down anytime soon. Although this local hotspot has attracted a bit of controversy since it opened late last year.

In May, the Toronto Humane Society took back TOT's cats. The non-profit organization disagreed with the cafe's business model, namely that it required patrons to make a minimum purchase in order to enter the cat room.

Around the same time, a former employee took to social media and complained about how the cats were being treated.
