If you don’t know what Gatos and Beans is, here’s a quick explanation. It’s the brain child of Kelli and Stephen Steward who decided to create a show that featured a cat adoption center as well as a cafe with food and drinks. Learn more.

According to a post on Gatos and Beans’ Facebook page, no sweet kitties were harmed during the event. Relief!

But, after such an eventful night, these lovable cats could definitely use a cuddle sesh. So be sure to pay them a visit and give them some love.

So back to what went down during the night of Saturday, October 5. 

During the break-in, the door to Gatos and Beans’ was shattered, along with extra security reinforcements. The repairs will cost $3,000. 

Oh dear! That’s definitely a lot of money, but oh-so worth it to keep this shop and its shelter cats safe.
