This Bookstore In Canada Is Full Of Cute Kittens That Customers Can Play With And Even Adopt

If you ever wanted to adopt a cute little kitty-cat, your first thought would probably be to go to an animal shelter. However, have you thought of going to… a bookstore?

Otis & Clementine’s Books and Coffee is a bookstore just outside of Halifax in Nova Scotia, Canada, that took an innovative approach to convince people to rescue kittens. When you come in to browse for a good read or have a cup of Joe, you’ll spot something unusual. Unusually adorable, that is.

Kittens! And lots of them! Playing around and napping among the books. And probably reading Dr. Seuss’ The Cat in the Hat when no one’s looking. The best part is, you can adopt any of the cats in the bookstore and give them the forever home they deserve. Cats, coffee, and books. Can it get any better than that?

Welcome to Otis & Clementine’s Books and Cofee where you can play with kittens and even adopt them!

The bookstore owner Ellen Helmke told Narcity that there are several kittens and “usually a mama cat as well” in the shop at any time. But the bookstore kittens aren’t just passersby taken in from the cold. They’re provided by the South Paw Conservation Nova Scotia rescue group.

If you happen to be in Upper Tantallon and visit Otis & Clementine’s and see a feline friend whom you absolutely adore, then you’d better act fast. “All the kittens are in and out fairly quickly, as they are adopted,” Helmke explained.

Over 30 cats have been adopted from the bookstore so far

However, adopting these cattos isn’t as easy as picking them up and going out the door. South Paw Conservation manages everything and it costs 255 Canadian dollars (or 194 US dollars) to adopt a kitten. The adoption fee covers everything, including any medical expenses. What’s more, future pet owners also need to provide references before bringing their gamboling tabby home.

Helmke started the kitten adoption program last year when she realized that there’s plenty of space in her shop for cute cattos. So far, over 30 cats from the bookstore were adopted. And we’re sure that this number will rise.

“People come here specifically to see the cats, and then some people just wander in to look at books and discover there are kittens,” she told Global News. “Either way, the response has been really great—I mean, who doesn’t love kittens, right?”

She added: “We have a hundred percent adoption rate, which is fantastic.”

“I’m so happy to make my customers happy when they come in and they’re just thrilled to see a kitten they weren’t expecting… It’s amazing and makes me happy to come to work.”
