An all-cat store has opened in Vancouver, and we’re feline pretty good about it


Cat lovers, listen up right meow: Vancouver has a brand new store that is all for cats. Well, specifically it’s for their humans to get stuff for their cats. Happy Cat Feline Essentials has just opened their doors on Fraser Street.

Dedicated solely to the needs of the superior* four-legged house pet, Happy Cat’s cheery space features everything you need to cater to your kitty friend(s), including gear, food, grooming tools, toys, treats, litter, and more.

You can file “gifts” under more, which is stuff for humans who love cats – think items like magnets, jewelry, pins, artwork, and tote bags – the whole kit and caboodle, basically.
