Here, kitty, kitty! Yesterday we told you about Sana Hamelin, an attorney who wants to follow her dream and open the city's first cat cafe.

Says Spotted Dick:

How about feeding the thousands of hungry, poor children in Colorado before you feed some fucking cats ???????
Says Steven:
I like cats but I don't think I could eat a whole one.
For the record, the goal of Denver Cat Company is not to feed cats or serve them to customers, but to create a gathering place where real social animals can sit and sip and love them some cats. Which inspires the best advice, from Keith:
Don't wear black!
Would you visit a cat cafe?
