Nine Lives is a new business that combines coffee with cats. Although there have been many cat cafes opening around the world, Nine Lives hopes to offer customers a chance to enjoy a variety of traditional coffee drinks or smoothies made with mostly local ingredients, then enjoy that beverage in the company of cats.

To encourage people to adopt a cat, the business offers a special cat lounge with scratching posts located liberally around the room along with shelves to allow cats to climb and perch. The goal is to give humans a chance to mingle with cats in a homelike environment.
