Crumbs and Whiskers is the brainchild and enormously famous cat café of QUEST alumna Kanchan Singh (Q17).  The result of a trip to Thailand, where Kanchan volunteered in an elephant sanctuary and visited a cat café for the first time, Crumbs and Whiskers has burgeoned into a cultural phenomenon in the DC area. Praised for its ambitious approach to social business, Crumbs and Whiskers began as a Kickstarter campaign with the message, “Cats shouldn’t live in cages. Cat lovers shouldn’t miss out on the joy of cats. Two problems, one solution.” Now in its second month of business, Crumbs and Whiskers has enjoyed coverage from the likes of the Washington Post, The DCist, The Georgetowner, and (of course) The Diamondback.

    I had a meal there last week. It was purrrrfect!

    All jokes aside this is a very interesting concept. I think I’ll take some friends down there after the Airshow.
