Paw through them

KC is the (unofficial) city of dogs, but cats aren’t just rolling over. You can find hardworking felines in cat cafés across the metro, filling orders for a latte scritches — with whole milk only, no substitutes please.

Stop in these cafés to work from your laptop while enlisting furry lap warmers as coworkers. Good news: all these shops feature adoptable cats, so the paw-ty doesn’t have to stop when you leave.
