Milwaukee cat cafe proprietor strategies rescue return from Lebanon

Two dozen cats. 6 thousand miles. Many several hours put in on cellphone calls that expense $2.50 for each minute. 

On Aug. 26, Sip & Purr Cat Cafe owner Katy McHugh will ultimately return from Beirut, Lebanon, accompanied on the flight by 25 cats.

McHugh, who launched Sip & Purr in 2018, has been in Lebanon for the earlier week on a rescue mission to deliver at-possibility cats back to the United States to be adopted.

She has documented the rescue tales of many precise cats, and the cafe’s Instagram web page is full of photos of Lebanese rescues.

Her most significant problem, although, was Qatar Airways’ refusal to enable the cats on her return flight “owing to aircraft form,” according to an Aug. 15 write-up. 

Attempts to get to McHugh for an job interview had been unsuccessful as of Thursday afternoon.
