Meow Parlour Fundraising After Vandals Shatter Front Window
Monday night, in the waning hours of Memorial Day weekend, vandals reportedly attacked Meow Parlour on Hester Street. Half the glass window shattered.
“Fortunately, [the window] didn’t collapse and no cats were harmed,” Meow Parlour noted on Facebook. “We are very grateful to our neighbors who alerted us so that we could immediately secure the glass. We are heartbroken but so relieved our cats are OK.”
Ownership now seeks contributions to help repair the floor-to-ceiling front window of the popular cat cafe. As of today, the crowdfunding effort has raised more than $1,800 from dozens of concerned customers.
Meow Parlour was founded in December 2014 by Simon Tung and Christina Ha, also behind the seven-year-old Macaron Parlour. The latter business moved down beside its sister company last summer, having relocated from the East Village.
