It may not seem like much to dine at a café that's filled with beautiful cats but in reality you're being part of a movement.
The Cat Lounge's founder, Dr. Waheed Mohammed, who told Arab News that his purpose behind the café is to promote a cultural shift toward animal care and welfare in the region, where many cats are abandoned, often on the streets without food.
Dr. Mohammed wanted to allow for an interaction between people in the Kingdom with cats in hopes of shifting local perspectives about animals and teaching people to properly treat animals.
