Charlie enjoys an early morning chai
How would you enjoy drinking coffee, tea, hot chocolate and/or any other variety of hot beverages from a cute cup, while also doing a solid for the environment? Lauren Pears of Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium recently sent me The Cats' Whiskers KeepCup, a sustainably sourced, re-usable, and recyclable coffee cup alternative that can be used up to 1,500 times, or about the equivalent of four years of every day use.
The adorable 8 oz. BPA free cup is the purrfect size for taking your cup of joe on the go, and even has a little line inside delineating the 8 oz. mark. The top snaps on so you can sip while keeping your tea toasty, but my favorite feature is the bewhiskered silicone band that prevents your paws from getting burned.

The cups are available in three colors: Plum/Cream, Plum/Black, and Black/Black - and if you think I agonized over which combination to get, you would be quite right.
Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium is scheduled to open later this year in London's East End, and promises to be a warm, comfortable place where patrons can play and cuddle up to one of their many resident cats.
The project made headlines in January after Pears started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to turn her dream of opening a cat cafe into a reality. She managed to raise an incredible £109,510 (over $170,000 USD) to open Lady Dinah's Cat Emporium, which will be the first facility of its kind in London.
Visit Lady Dinah's website, or follow them on Facebook for more information on the progress of the cafe, or to buy a KeepCup of your own.
Disclosure: I received a Cats' Whiskers KeepCup for review, but all opinions and pensive pussycats portrayed in this post are my own.
