This bookstore in Canada is filled with kittens and people can adopt them

One Canadian bookstore has found an innovative way to find new homes for orphaned kittens in its community.

Otis & Clementine's Books and Coffee outside of Halifax, Nova Scotia houses a bunch of furry friends among its shelves in the hopes that residents coming to pick up a few books may leave with a rescue cat, too.

They live in the store round-the-clock and provide endless entertainment — not to mention cuteness — for patrons. Visitors are encouraged to cozy up on one of the store's couches with a good book to read and a kitty to play with.

The felines serve as a sort of mascot for the shop, greeting and often surprising those who walk in in the door. And we must admit that the business model is genius — because who wouldn't love to visit a dreamy indie bookstore-slash-coffee-shop filled with adorable baby cats?

The store seems like the perfect place to spend a few hours for anyone who finds themselves in the area.
