CHICAGO (CBS) — The City Council has cleared the way for a so-called “Cat Café” to open in the West Ridge neighborhood, as part of a new animal shelter.
Ald. Debra Silverstein (50th) said the permit for the Tree House Humane Society shelter at 7225 N. Western Av. would allow the facility to include a coffee house to help bring in people who might adopt pets.READ MORE: Ed’s Driveway: Toyota Sienna
“The food preparation is going to be in a totally separate room, but the adopters can take their coffee and go into an observation room, and sit and have their coffee and look at new perspective animals,” she said.
