VANCOUVER—Vancouver, B.C. cat cafe Catfé has temporarily closed because all of its cats were adopted and it couldn't stock more. Vancity Buzz reports that most of the resident cats come from northern British Columbia, and winter road conditions have slowed the influx of cats. They hope to reopen soon when more cats become available. [Vancity Buzz]
