California dreamin' just got a lot furrier.

The state's first cat café, called Catfe, is opening in Los Angeles's Chinatown neighborhood in October, according to the LA Weekly – and it sounds like the service there is going to be cat-tastic.

Besides coffee, tea and other drinks, there will plenty of felines to pet and even adopt if you're older than 18, says the magazine.

Catfe is the brainchild of Carlos Wong, who created a Kickstarter campaign earlier this year in hopes of bringing coffee and cats to the masses in the United States. According to the LA Weekly, he partnered with Chinatown BID and Best Friends Animal Society L.A. for the venture, which will also feature costumed maids and deejays.

There's the Super Bowl. And then there's the Su-purrr Bowl.

If you don't know your Cowboys from your catnip, we're going to assume you're just as excited as we are for this year's Kitten Bowl, which airs Sunday, Feb. 1, 2015, on the Hallmark Channel (and is hosted by animal advocate and North Shore Animal League America spokesperson Beth Stern).

In one of the new spots available on YouTube (and there are many more should you need a break today!), a group of seemingly annoyed cats sit at a table wearing Pizza Hut hats, waiting for their pizza delivery.

There are lots of things to be sad about these days (example: We're not having Ryan Gosling's baby) but Pixie the cat isn't bothered by any of them.

This 2-year-old feline, who resides in the U.K., has the eyes of a girl who just spent hours crying over a broken heart. But she's really as happy as a mid-nap cat – meaning her looks are purely for the benefit of others, like us.

"She's happy most of the time," the Persian cat's owner, Sophie Batt, says in an interview with the U.K. Daily Mail. "She's always playing or eating."
