北美第一家猫咪咖啡馆开业了!

City-dwellers and tourists alike flocked to the Purina ONE Cat Café in the Bowery on Thursday morning for their chance to spend some quality time with some furry friends, while caffeining up on the pop-up's signature Cat'achino, a cappuccino with a foam feline on top。

Feline fanatic Dennis Cote, 30, pounced at the opportunity to spend the morning with cats, commuting in two hours from his home in Farmington, Conn., to play with the shop's 16 fuzzy felines。

30岁的丹尼斯是爱猫人士,他没有错过这个机会,跟猫咪们度过了一个上午。他从法明顿市的家里坐了两个小时的车,来店里和16只喵星人一起玩耍。

"I have three cats at home already," said Cote, who works as a Starbucks barista. "My parents said don't come back with a fourth."
