New Paris cafe offers drinks and purrs

PARIS (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Parsians are lining up to experience a new cafe--offering coffee, croissants, and a side of purr therapy.

About a dozen stray cats weave between the tables or curl up in customers' laps at Cafe de Chats, in Paris.

The idea is to give animal lovers who are unable to keep pets due to cramped city-center apartments the chance to cozy up to a furry friend.

The owner says there are health benefits as well, claiming that purring produces vibrations which relieve arthritis and rheumatism.
