New cafe brings some 'Catitude' to West Columbia

Guests pet cat at West Columbia's new Catitude Cat Cafe.

WEST COLUMBIA (WACH)-Cat lovers have a new place to call home in the Midlands.

The Catitude Cat Cafe opened its doors today.

Its a first of its kind in the midlands where customers can sip on a cup of coffee and enjoy their furry friends.

Owners have partnered with Pets Inc. to give the four legged pets a permanent place to call home.

Jaime Andres Ortega, Catitude Cat Cafe owner, says, "The way this benefits the cats here in Columbia is it helps them find a forever homes. So instead of being outside on the streets or in adumpster on a cold wet rainy day, instead they're going to be here where they're loved and cuddled by our staff and they'll be up for adoption so that way families people can come in here and see the cats and hopefully fall in love with them and hopefully take them home."

The cafe is also looking for cat owners willing to have their pet featured in their 2018 "Cat-lender".
