B.C. cat cafe temporarily closes after running out of cats

It seems as though a unique Vancouver café is a victim of its own success.

Catfé, and establishment that's part café, part foster home for adoptable rescue cats, has temporarily shut down after running out of cats.

"Due to the overwhelming success of adoptions in our first few weeks, we have run out of cats!," reads a message posted on Catfé's website.

Within three weeks of opening, 11 cats were adopted to new homes.

The cats come from the B.C. SPCA and Catfé owner Michelle Furbacher said poor weather and road closures during the holidays delayed the delivery of new cats.

"These are some growing pains we're trying to work out," Furbacher told CTV Vancouver.

Catfé is expected to reopen on Friday with a new selection of adoptable cats.
