Some superstitions say that black cats bring bad luck. Some superstitions say black cats bring good luck. We say that black cats, like all cats, are soft and adorable and we want to snuggle them. When the urge hits, we go to La Gattara Cat Lounge & Boutique. The lounge, which opened earlier this year, is a bright space decorated in cheerful tones of pink and blue. Shag rugs, pillows, and beanbag chairs dot the floor, making it feel like someone's basement rec room — y'know, if that person also had, like, 20 cats. Besides allowing the feline-loving public to just come in and hang out for a small fee, the lounge also holds a number of events, like yoga with cats, cat-themed movie nights, group painting sessions, and even speed dating. The cats and kittens come from a number of local rescue groups and are adoptable, so if you happen to fall in love with one feline in particular (black or otherwise), you could end up with a forever friend. Lucky you.
