The Purina One Cat Cafe at 168 Bowery started on Thursday, April 24 with sixteen cats from the Long Island’s North Shore Animal League, all available for adoption. Just as the cats planned, New Yorkers have been eager to welcome them into their homes. The pop-up cat cafe attracted all sorts of cat enthusiasts before it closed up shop on Sunday, April 27.
