Rhi Gladney loves cats so much she wants adopting one to be as easy as ordering a cappuccino. Okay, maybe not that easy. But the idea—a café where you can adopt a cat—came to her after visiting Purringtons Cat Lounge in Portland, Oregon. “They’ve drastically reduced euthanasia rates in Portland by getting so many cats adopted through the café,” she says. Inspired, she returned hoping to bring that model to Vegas with her own cat-and-coffee shop, Meow or Never. Living in one of the only major metropolitan cities in the country without a cat café, Gladney is currently raising money through generosity.com to help Meow or Never land on its feet. Ultimately, Gladney says she just wants to help Vegas’ nearly 200,000 stray and homeless cats find forever homes. For more information, visit meowornever.cafe.
