Here's the Vital Cat Cafe Update You Know You Wanted

It might not be one of the most anticipated openings, but fans of felines asked us to check in with Tony Wong, who was endeavoring to open North America's first cat cafe right here in San Diego.

Wong originally intended to open his cat cafe earlier this summer, but was stalled due to permitting delays. Now, it looks like Oakland's Cat Town Cafe, which is scheduled to launch in September, might take that distinction.

The Cat Cafe is still in the works downtown; Wong says he'll take possession of the 1,200-square-foot space in October and put in the walls that'll separate the coffee cart from the cat play area. Once the main attraction (the cats) have some time to get used to their new digs, The Cat Cafe should soft open by late October.
