River Kitty Cat Café is celebrating its 700th adoption after opening in Evansville over three years ago.
A kitten named Buttermilk was adopted on Friday marking 700 total adoptions - a welcomed milestone after having to close down operations and halting adoptions when the pandemic first hit the Tri-State.
"Because we did shut down, you know, at the beginning of last year we were at 440 - that was in February," explained Sydney Long, a Cat Lounge Attendant Volunteer at the River Kitty Cat Café. "Now we're at 700. That's even with five weeks shut down."
Volunteers at River Kitty Cat Café hope those adoption numbers continue to climb, with a goal of having 800 cats find forever homes with the next few months.
