When you have a cat curled up in your lap while reading a nice book, the experience is even greater. The same is true the other way around.
As a result, Otis & Clementine’s Books and Coffee is our ideal bookstore. There is nothing cozier than the marriage of kitties and books.
The Upper Tantallon, Nova Scotia–based bookstore has partnered with the animal rescue organization South Paw Conservation Nova Scotia to help shelter cats find loving homes and give their customers somewhere to read. This is a wholesome post and we bet you that you are going to enjoy reading it so don’t forget to scroll till the very end.
Kittens from the rescue organization are given a temporary home inside the bookstore while being assisted in finding their forever homes.
The bookstore allows the adoptable kittens to roam about freely, and you can find them lounging around on comfortable seats or sleeping idly in bookcases.
The adoption rate at the shop is currently 100% with over 30 kittens already adopted.
The bookstore’s owner, Ellen Hemke, stated that “all the kittens are in and out rather rapidly, as they get adopted,” in an interview with Narcity.
The adoption fee, which goes toward the kitten’s medical costs, is 255 Canadian dollars (about 195 US dollars), if you wish to take one of the kittens home.
To ensure that the kittens are going to good homes, you must also submit references before being approved for adoption.
We’re thrilled that this amazing project is succeeding so well and that this innovative collaboration has helped so many cats find their forever homes. We hope that other bookshops adopt Otis & Clementine’s idea and assist even more homeless kitties.
There isn’t a finer feeling than leaving a bookshop with a brand-new book in one arm and a cherished new family member in the other.
