Get ready for a cuteness overload.
The Brooklyn Cat Cafe, which opened last month at 149 Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn Heights, has installed a live, 24/7 kitten cam in its kitten terrarium.
The 5-week-old kittens, named Jem, Rumple and Jelly, will live in the terrarium with mother Grizebella until they’re 8 weeks old and can get their first vaccines. The whole litter will be spayed and neutered once they’re ready to come out.

They’ll then be placed with the cafe’s other cats, who roam freely through the storefront. The kittens will be up for adoption when they’re 10 to 11 weeks old.
Until then, watch them play, eat, sleep and basically be adorable.
“They’re hilarious, they’re at that awkward stage where their bodies aren’t really totally coordinated yet,” said Anne Levin, director at the Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, which operates the cat cafe.
“My favorite thing is when one of them does the sideways dancing when they’re going to pounce. It’s completely comedy.”
Levin said she hopes the kitten cam will help spread awareness of animal overpopulation, and the importance of spaying or neutering pets.
“As cute as these guys are, a lot of them suffer terribly living on the street because they’re not taken care of,” Levin said.
But at the end of the day, she hopes anyone watching walks away with a smile.
“It’s really hard to be sad or depressed if you’re watching these kittens do entirely goofy ridiculous things, and then watching them completely pass out is also nice and relaxing,” Levin said.
Although this litter has just a few weeks to go in the terrarium, BBAWC will look for a new set to take its place.
