CLEVELAND — For cat lovers in Cleveland, you're long-awaited wish is coming true in 2019.

AffoGATO cat cafe, 761 Starkweather Ave, is opening on Jan. 2.

First, you're probably thinking: a cat cafe and food all in one space?! Well, not exactly.

Here's how it works:

The affoGATO Cat Cafe has two sections: the cafe side where guests can enjoy cat-themed treats, coffee and tea, and the other side, separated by glass, where you can hang with some of the coolest cats in town. To hang with the cats, visitors will have to make reservations by phone or online. Once you booked a time slot, you will be given a brief orientation on how the lounge works.

The cafe is partnering with local bakeries and chefs to prepare all the food, so there is no cross-hair contamination.

All cats inside the lounge are rescue cats from the Cleveland Animal Protective League. Before you visit, meet the cute feline friends here.
