West Columbia, SC (WLTX) - A new business is helping combine coffee and cats to help get the four legged friends adopted.

On Friday, Andres and Maria had the grand opening of "Catitude" Cat Cafe along State Street in West Columbia.

The coffee shop has two floors. On the bottom floor, it's the same as any other normal coffee shop. Upstairs people can drink coffee and hang out with the cats.

The goal of the business is to help get cats adopted and find forever homes.

To go upstairs to spend time with the cats, it costs $15 and includes a drink. The business also does offer discounts to college students and public service members.

The Grand Opening brought packs of people but also brought surprises along the way. Watch the video to see what they are.
