*~If ever you are in a tough spot- no matter how many years from now- call the number on this card."~*

Ahri is a young woman down on her luck. Jobless and on the brink of homelessness, she makes a last desperate effort- and calls the number on the business card given to her by the handsome stranger in the park nearly 10 years ago. The call leads her to Cafe 9 Life, a cozy cat cafe with a colorful staff and an owner with no shortage of mysteries.
Taking refuge within the cafe’s walls, her life takes a strange, fateful- and maybe even a bit magical- turn.

Characters:

Ahri
--A kind-hearted, sleepy eyed girl--
A young woman in a rough patch, who finds help and a home at Cafe 9 Life. Hardworking to a fault, but can be a bit hot-headed.


Yamato

--The laid back cafe owner--
A calm and casual man, and the owner of Cafe 9 Life.
Has somewhat of a lazy nature, and is often described by the staff as air-headed
and forgetful. He however, shows an uncharacteristically
serious side when it comes to helping Ahri.


Miel

--The confident and flirty former housecat--
A stylish and self-assured young man with a playboy demeanor.
Exceptionally kind to women, and has quite a fanbase
among the female customers of the cafe as a result. 


Amande

--The Tiny But Mighty pastry chef--
The youngest of the staff, but the most capable in the kitchen.
Always trying to prove himself to Yamato, and to outdo those older
than him. His small stature and baby-faced looks are a point of great aggravation.


Lait

--The ferocious former stray--
A wild-eyed man who lived many lives as a stray on the streets.
An intimidating figure with a formidable reputation among both humans and cats.
Has never really had a home, and is a bit awkward around humans.


Ciocco

--The cheerful but immature older brother--
The moodmaker of the cafe, an excitable young man with a voice twice as big as his body.
Outgoing and touchy-feely, even with strangers.
He claims to be able to tell a person’s entire personality after one conversation.


Vanil

--The stoic but kind younger brother--
A young man that never seems to smile, though he is never short on kind words or helping hands.
Due to his unapproachable aura, he harbors a deep loneliness and some envy towards his more outspoken brother.
Greatly enjoys flower arranging, and is knowledgeable about plants.


Noisette

--The cute but clumsy waitress--
A cheerful and friendly girl with the heart of a romantic. Greatly enjoys being a waitress at the cafe,
but her clumsiness often makes her more of a liability than anything. Easily swept up by a sad story or kind words.


Featuring:
-Nameable Protagonist
-5 Love Interests (+ a secret route!)
-A story of love and wishes, unfolding over the course of 9 chapters

*More will be added as development continues!

Author's Notes:
I'm extremely excited to start putting some work into my very first major project here on CloudNovel! As far as progress goes, I'm not very far along at all, so I'm excited to have lots to post in the thread to keep things interesting. For now, thank you for reading, I'm sorry if my images are way too large (this always happens), and I'm always open to feedback, advice, opinions, everything! ʕ •ᴥ•ʔ/・*: .○☆*゚
Edit: oof my carefully laid out formatting......I'll fix it,,

@fluffness Everything's still very much in the planning stages, I've got a few scenes written out here and there, but it's all pretty disjointed. As far as routes, I can release them as they're completed, since I'm writing them as almost standalone stories! Miel's is the first one I'm working on.
This looks sooo cute! Definitely looking forward to its release :3

@Neeka Thank you so much! I appreciate it~
Update! The playboy housecat Miel! 
He even surprised me a bit with how cute he came out >w< 
I'm excited to use this laughing sprite as often as I possibly can, aha.

He's here, and ready to serve the love~
(even though he only works as the front of house and not a waiter)

if you don't mind a critique, I think the head is too big thus the hand also became too big. I can't help but admire the colour especially the hair though... just AHHHHHH
