A temporary kitten café recently opened in Washington, D.C. with the goal of providing relief to animal shelters during kitten season.

The Kitten Lounge was created by Kanchan Singh, who also owns Crumbs & Whiskers, a cat café in Los Angeles and D.C. “Once we opened our cat café, people were asking us for kittens all the time,” Singh told WXYZ.

Twenty-five kittens ranging in age from three to six months, roam around in the space, interacting with paying visitors. The kittens are available for adoption, and in its first week open, The Kitten Lounge received nearly 100 adoption applications.

“The goal of this place is to help locals shelters that are overrun with kittens get kittens adopted, instead of having them be euthanized,” said Singh.

The cafe will be open through June 30, and Singh is looking to expand to other cities. Check out the cute video below and have a great weekend!
