Kanchan Singh lived in Washington, D.C., with a good corporate job that gave her plenty of free time to shop, travel and party. Despite her well-paying job, she felt emotionally unsatisfied.

While volunteering in Thailand to help with elephants, Singh decided she had to leave her corporate job and pursue her dream come true, which is to start a cat cafe. With the help of a Kickstarter campaign, Singh plans to open a cat cafe in Washington D.C.

Given the current political climate, hugging a cat may be the best remedy for everyone.
