Summerville, SC – A new cafe in Summerville has encountered the best possible type of problem, a shortage of their main attraction…cats! The Mews + Brews Cat Cafe, which features adoptable cats from the nearby animal shelter Dorchester Paws, opened its doors on January 6 and the response was incredible.
Days after the grand opening, the business let everyone know that they were “suffering from success,” with a shortage of adoptable cats.
It is a wonderful problem to have. Cait Cox, the cafe owner hoped that the business would help homeless shelter cats get adopted, but she did not expect so much success right out of the gate. Cox told the Post and Courier:
“I was hoping we would have maybe two adoptions in the first week. I was like, ‘That’ll be good. That’ll show that there’s interest, if we get two, I’ll be happy,’” Cox said. “We had two our very first day.”
April Howard, director of operations at Dorchester Paws, is thrilled to be partnering with Cox. She tells the news agency:
“Those type of cats’ personalities don’t get to flourish behind kennel bars,” Howard said, “so having somewhere they can literally relax on a couch and just be themselves is really awesome.”
