At both their Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles locations, people visiting Crumbs & Whiskers throughout the month of February can pay a $5 donation to write the name of their ex in a giant litter box. Guests can choose whether their donation goes to Stray Cat Alliance or Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, so all of the ex bashing is actually supporting two very worthy causes. If you don’t live locally, you can still send the café the name of your ex, and they’ll write it in the litter box for you and send you a photo of it.
Valentine’s Day can be a wonderful holiday, but if you’re single, it can also serve as an annoying reminder of that fact. While there are plenty of places to go to celebrate the romantic aspects of the holiday, there aren’t a lot of outlets for the bitter and the scorned, so one cat café is doing the best thing to help people let out their frustrations.
A while back, Kanchan Singh, founder and owner of Crumbs & Whiskers cat café, and her team were tossing around ideas for events they could host at the café for Valentine’s Day. After talking to a bunch of their customers, they realized that doing something traditional may not be the way to go, and soon came up with the best idea.
“A lot of our customers were saying that there are so many places to celebrate who you’re with, but there’s nowhere to sh** on your ex,” Singh told The Dodo. “One customer literally said cats should sh** on an ex’s name.”
