Do you like your coffee with milk? Or would you prefer milk on the side — in a saucer, for the 10-15 cats surrounding you? The Japanese sensation of cat cafés, a coffee shop/adoption center, will soon be realized locally. The Humane Society of Huron Valley has announced plans to open The Tiny Lions Lounge and Adoption Center, this winter. Tiny Lions will provide a temporary, human-kitty bonding experience for visitors considering adoption or searching for therapeutic relief. Local entrepreneur, Miranda Bono, is also hoping to open a cat café of her own, The Cat’s Meow, in 2016.
