One Canadian bookstore has found an innovative way to find new homes for orphaned kittens in its community.
Otis & Clementine’s Books and Coffee outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia houses a bunch of furry friends among its shelves in the hopes that residents coming to pick up a few books may leave with a rescue cat, too.
Though some local bookshops are known for having a resident cat, this business fosters multiple adoptable kittens from local rescue South Paw Conservation Nova Scotia at a time.
They live in the store round-the-clock and provide endless entertainment — not to mention cuteness — for patrons. Visitors are encouraged to cozy up on one of the store’s couches with a good book to read and a kitty to play with.
The felines serve as a sort of mascot for the shop, greeting and often surprising those who walk in in the door. And we must admit that the business model is genius — because who wouldn’t love to visit a dreamy indie bookstore-slash-coffee-shop filled with adorable baby cats?
Otis & Clementine’s also hosts Spanish classes and other events for the neighborhood in their charming space, but understandably, the kittens serve as a huge draw.
The store seems like the perfect place to spend a few hours for anyone who finds themselves in the area.
