Anyone thinking of adopting a kitten or dog usually thinks they have to turn exclusively to shelters and kennels. What if we told you that in Canada there is a café-bookstore that hosts kittens looking for a home ? The enchanted place is called Otis & Clementine’s Books and Coffee – it is located just outside Halifax in Nova Scotia (Canada). The bookshop in question is the perfect place to find the book you’ve been trying to read for a long time, have some tea and…cuddle some adorable kittens! That’s right: kittens…lots of kittens. The best part of frequenting this unique café-bookstore is precisely the fact that you can adopt any kitten at any time, giving it a home for life. As well as lots of endless love.
Welcome to Otis & Clementine’s Book s and Coffee!
The kittens are all provided by the rescue organization South Paw Conservation
According to the owner of Otis & Clementine’s, Ellen Helmke, the bookshop is always full of kittens and “mothers” ready to give them a home.

If you find the feline friend of your dreams, you’d better hurry up with the request, as kittens go away pretty quickly. However, adopting one is not exactly a walk in the park: South Paw Conservation handles the entire adoption process, at a cost of 255 Canadian dollars. When applying for adoption, references will be requested.
Most people come to this bookshop specifically to see the kittens, while others find themselves looking for some titles among the shelves and then realize they are in a place full of sweet kittens.
If you love cats, it will be hard to resist adopting one!
