ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis is about to get its first “cat cafe.”

KMOX Radio (https://cbsloc.al/1IeLZ8F ) reports that Mauhaus Cat Cafe and Lounge will allow patrons to enjoy feline companionship while they sip coffee or tea. The cafe is expected to open next year, but a couple of events are planned for later this year to set the stage.

The cats will come from Tenth Life Cat Rescue, whose director, Elizabeth Frick, says the cats will spend time in a foster home to make sure they’re friendly before they are placed in the cafe.

Cat cafes started in Japan and have spread to other cities. Frick says they are ideal for people who can’t have cats at home for various reasons.
