Merging craft coffee & cats

-- Cat & Craft Brings Artisanal Coffee to the Cat Café Concept
Cat & Craft will be the home to North County's first cat café —
one with a craft coffee twist. Opening January 8, 2019, Cat & Craft will be the first cat café in San Diego County to combine a full 1,500-square-
foot café with a side of frolicking felines in a lounge separated by a glass wall.
Owned by wife and husband team, Caroline and Andrew Vaught, Cat & Craft was inspired by their love of cats as well as local handcrafted food and beverages. The café features artisanal and craft coffee, tea, and pastries for discerning palates, while the lounge provides a comfortable, cage-free environment for personal interactions with adoptable cats and kittens, provided by local non-profit, Love Your Feral Felines (LYFF). All foster cats are fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered and microchipped, with one hundred percent of the adoption fees going directly to LYFF.
"We created Cat & Craft because we wanted to provide a place for the community to connect with each other and animals who are in need of a loving family to call their own," Caroline Vaught said. "We knew this was our calling after realizing Andrew's coffee expertise would pair perfectly with our shared love of cats. It was our previous volunteer work with LYFF that lead us to create this space for the community. The city of Vista has been so supportive, so I believe we've landed where we were meant to be."
Cat & Craft will house art by local artists and plans to host various events from cat yoga to private functions in the near future.About Cat & Craft
