The Brooklyn Cat Cafe in Cobble Hill is run by volunteers from the Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, but I think it may be powered by cuteness. People Magazine reports that the group opened over a year ago, and though they've gotten plenty of attention for the wonderful work they do with rescued cats, a recent video of interspecies love introduced the world to their innovative techniques.

Kinda makes sense. Kittens look a lot like rats, actually.
