Changes coming to DC cat cafe

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- It's going to be a little tougher to get into D.C.'s only cat cafe. And when you do, it will hit your wallet a little more.

Crumbs and Whiskers announced Monday that they're implementing a number of changes, including reducing the number of people in the cafe and increasing the cover charge for entry to $15.

The cafe, which opened two months ago, allows customers to sip coffee with cats in need of a home. In those two months, the cafe says 23 cats have been adopted from the cafe through their partnership with the Washington Humane Society.  

However, the cafe says overcrowding has been a problem. Hence the change from allowing 37 people in the cafe to now allowing a maximum of 24.

Another change is the ordering system at Crumbs and Whiskers. The cafe says they will now offer complimentary coffee and tea (included in the cover charge). Macarons and Croissants from a local bakery will also be sold.  

The cafe says they will also be adding more chairs and benches.
