Snowbound on Beacon Hill

Kathleen O'Donnell watched her kitty watching the snow on Beacon Hill this morning.

Catarina Maia took a look out her window and realized immediately she wasn't going anyplace any time soon in this most historic of historic Boston winters. We could get 18 inches out of this snow, but with drifts, God, who knows?

A cafe where you can pet and gaze at cats while you sip your latte, not a place for cats to enjoy mouse smoothies, that is.

I'm a young entrepreneur looking to start a cat cafe in the U.S. I'm very serious about this and determined to have be created by the end of 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts. I've had this idea for a while now ever since learning about them through the internet a couple of years ago.

Cat cafes are a type of small restaurant originating in Japan where patrons can eat meals and have beverages in the company of felines.

And then, once it's up and running, somebody could open a puppy cafe.

H/t, David Harris.

Neil the roving UHub commuter e-mails this account:

Last night around 7:00pm I get off the Orange Line at DTX and see some frantic ~20 year old kid frantically running around and asking the janitorial staff questions.

I try to be helpful so as we're heading down to the Red Line southbound, I ask him what's wrong or if he needs directions.

He says, "Oh man, I just left my cat on the train!"

I ask if it was in a carrier.

Yes, he was bring in back from the vet's after being neutered.

Strollercat

Robby snapped this photo of a cat on the Red Line this evening. A cat in a stroller. A big-ass stroller, apparently. He tweeted:

What's wrong with this picture? Many things ...

Another commuter, AH, also took to Twitter, around 6:20 p.m. and was more specific:

Lady with a cat in full-sized/meant for children stroller preventing me and 8 other saps from going on T. #wtf #catbitch #mbta

Ah, but the cat owner tweets, too. In fact, Coco Koh has blogged about her adventures on the T with Jacoby the Abyssinian. So she tweeted right back:

FYI snippy woman on the Red Line: cats (& dogs) ARE allowed on #mbta as long as they're properly contained!!!

MzKeating chimed in:

[H]ave you ever tried to get a cat to walk on a leash?

Robby answered:

No, that sounds ridiculous. That was her rationale as well, along with cat does not like the escalator. ... Let's recap, cat, stroller, peak hours, capacity train. No, still not reasonable. Thing was gigantic.

Keep up to the minute by doing a Twitter search on #strollercat.
