Folks who had their hackles up over a lawsuit involving a cat bite at the Denver Cat Company earlier this month can retract their claws: owner Sana Hamelin announced today on the cat cafe's Facebook page that the lawsuit has been dropped. As reported by 9News.com on May 11, Amanda Jamrogiewicz filed the suit on behalf of her mother, Sue Hodges, after Hodges was bitten by a cat named Morpheus.

Hamelin, who was once a corporate litigator, never denied that the customer was bitten, but points out that there are notices posted in the cafe warning guests that bites and scratches do happen, explaining to Westword last week that "I don't want to shove a waiver in people's faces when they walk in. I chose not to do it because the café is a very happy place."

Here's the Facebook post from Hamelin thanking her customers for their support, along with a photo of one of the cafe's kitties — not behaving badly:
