The Catcade In Chicago Is The Coolest Cafe/Arcade We've Ever Seen!

Welcome to Chicago's Catcade! The Catcade, according to their Instagram is, "45% cat cafe. 45% cat rescue. 5% arcade. 3% cat hair. 2% black t-shirts. 100% non-profit = 200% the best hour in Chicago. Cats > math." And 100% pawesome. The Catcade is the coolest arcade around because it is an "arcade-themed" cat rescue, and lounge. Creators of the Catcade, Christopher Gutierrez and Shelly Casey, orchestrated an environment where the cats can roam-free and interact with humans, instead of being locked up in cages. We simulate a home environment where instead of being in cages, the cats get to interact with friendly humans in a free-roam living room atmosphere.

Mama Cat Adopts Four Orphaned Baby Squirrels And It's The Sweetest Thing

Pusha is a cat who lives in a park in Bakhchisaray, Crimea. She came across four young squirrels who'd lost their parents, and rather than going back to her usual cat business or pushing them away like they were pesky mice, she decided to look after them. See? Cats are wonderful.

Two Young Sisters Create Haiku Book All About Cats In Order To Help The Cats At Their Local Shelter

These young ladies are incredible! Ella, 10-years-old, and her younger sister Erin, 6-years-old, volunteer weekly at Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue in Germantown, Ohio. 

Their mother Emily had this to say about her extraordinary daughters, "my daughters are constantly thinking of ideas to help raise money since the shelter is pretty small (currently 10 cats, 3 dogs (plus 1 in foster who just had 13 babies), 2 guinea pigs). Ella, my 10-year-old, orchestrated a shoe drive in her classroom as the shelter collects shoes for a non-profit, and once they get a certain amount, the non-profit makes a donation. She also started making homemade slime to sell on Etsy to raise money (ebslimeshoppe)."  

When a tiny tornado ripped through their little town last year it completely damaging their animal shelter. Thankfully, all the animals were safe but all needed fostering. When the shelter re-opened and supplies arrived, the young girls helped sort through the containers and helped set the shelter back up! 

Then they came up with a beautiful idea to create a haiku ebook, all about cats. The e-book can be found here on Amazon, and all proceeds go towards Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue.

Thank you, Emily, Ella & Erin, for all that you do for the animal community! 

All animals pictured below are available for adoption at the Robyn's Nest Animal Rescue:

Devastated Women Forced To Surrender Her Fur-Babies To Shelter Leaves Heartbreaking Note

This story is a tear-jerker, make sure you have that tissue box near and ready! The owner of two beautiful 16-year-old Birman cats was forced to accept the fact that she will be moving into a nursing home and would not be able to bring her beloved cats with her. The most difficult part of making this decision was because she was worried about her loves and to make matters worse, her family was unable, and unwilling, to take the cats in. She was left with one choice, return them to the shelter.
