Most of you have seen the excitement going on at the  Purina ONE Cat Café in NYC where tons of visitors are learning more about cats and cat owners are signing up for the Purina ONE 28 Day Challenge. Did you know that at the Cat Café by Purina ONE visitors can also enjoy a “cat’achino” as well?

The Purina ONE Cat Café  is located at 168 Bowery and will be open through Sunday, April 27 for people to drop by for coffee and cat-focused conversation. Experts will be on hand to talk about different topics related to cat health and behavior. Additionally, adoptable cats from North Shore Animal League America (NSALA) will mingle with guests.

Carrie Ann Inaba, a judge on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and founder of The Carrie Ann Inaba Animal Project, was the featured speaker on the first day of the café. Carrie Ann is a passionate pet advocate and has seen remarkable changes in her cats, Mimi and Blizzard, since taking the Purina ONE 28 Day Challenge by switching their food to Purina ONE. “I had no idea the difference the food I selected could make in both my cats’ bodies and activity levels.
